Control board with integrated fan relay
Currently working on a issue with a Spacepak 2ton air handler that is having problem with a sticky fan control relay. Thinking it’s a simple fix until I pull the panel and note the relay is part in the main control board which is a $$$ priced item.
What would it have cost them to put spade connectors in the board versus a solder on relay? $3-4 more for a standalone relay would improve maintenance and reduce complexity of main board.
Reminds me of a friend of mine who was buying new high dollar double oven because the control board failed on the 4 yo original oven and was now obsolete.
Another example of low cost cost beating reliable in current market.
Mini rant, feel free to move along.
