beware maytag / nordyne hvac
I wanted to share my experience with Nordyne HVAC (doing business as Maytag). In December 2012 I had two completely new high efficiency AC / heat pump systems installed. In less than 8 months the blower motors on both air handlers went out.
One is a 2 ton system and one a 2.5 ton system. Air handlers are variable speed.
The air handler model numbers are B6VKMAX30K-B and B6VMAX24K-B.
The contractor who put them in informed me that they had replaced "a lot" of blower motors on these air handlers throughout 2013.
Maytag pats itself all over the back on its web site about the hundreds of factory checks that are performed before the units are shipped. yeah right
Note that Maytag offers ZERO labor warranty so it's all on you. I contacted them about any kind of labor warranty they would offer at least on the air handlers since the units were obviously defective to begin with and they just laughed at me.
