I've had my Trane system for a little over 5 yrs. and have always had it maintained 2 times a yr. Now, I'm told that the fan motor [outside] is leaking oil and needs to be replaced. Of course, the full warranty is up so I have to pay for the labor.
Is this a common thing? I paid $5000.00 for the unit and can't understand why a motor would go bad in less than 10 years! The old system I had previously seemed to last much longer than that.
The only excuse I get is..."well, this happens sometimes".
Hope to hear from somebody on this.
