Anyone else see a lot of failures lately? Haven't fitted one fro months but in the last two weeks have had five fail!

Four semi's and a scroll.

strange how things happen,me and another tech used to say its compressor week then t/stat week comp failures over here are due to the fluctuations in our climate thats my guess.
