I've been selling them for 12 years, along with many other brands.
Today my compressor shorted on my 11 year old Amana and I'm getting a brand new unit under warranty.
What are the odds? This is the first failure of a compressor we have ever had on these units in 12 years and it was my house. Lol.
My pool heater is shot, microwave fried today, and water softener crapped out. When it rains it pours as they say.
"The greatest pleasure is to vanquish your enemies and chase them before you, to rob them of their wealth and see those dear to them bathed in tears, to ride their horses and clasp to your bosom their wives and daughters."
We don't sell a lot of two stage in any brand or see many in Ocala, but yes mine is the first to fail. Thank God Amana has a lifetime unit replacement warranty on top of the normal 10 year warranty most brands offer so I'm getting a brand new unit at 11 years old.
