    Dead Hayward AQR - Anyone find a secret to improving longevity?

    I had the standard "dead hayward aqr" problem described here: http://www.troublefreepool.com/threa...-lights-not-on

    Complete with visibly failed current limiter. Unit was only 18 months old.

    I didn't have time to deal with it at the moment, so ordered a new board from Amazon, got it overnight, installed and all is well. When I called Hayward, they gave me the runaround about having to pay for a local technician to come to my house to inspect the unit and then they'd replace as needed etc.

    Two questions:

    1) Is Hayward going to replace my board if I just offer to mail them the bad one? (I've emailed them)

    2) Did anyone ever discover a way to improve the longevity of the board? It looks like earlier models HAD a fan installed in the box - did they fare any better?

    I bought spare limiters and can solder one in if I have to, but annoyed at the initial phone call I had with Hayward. I understand dealer network and all that, but for warranty support on a product I purchased new, I expect to be able to send it back to the manufacturer.

    I don't know, but thank you for posting a new thread like this instead of bumping the old one.

    That is appreciated by all the mods I assure you. Thank You!
