Every new Four Seasons compressor design is put through a rigorous durability test that simulates operating 50,000 miles in the most extreme conditions before being approved for production, as well as being tested for noise and leaks - including vacuum decay and pressure decay - to ensure a long lasting, trouble free compressor.
Proper Compressor Installation to Prevent Premature Failure
Should I also replace my condenser?
It is recommended that the condenser be replaced whenever the compressor is replaced. While older Tube & Fin style condensers can technically be flushed, metal shards from a failed compressor can get lodged in the cylindrical tubes and restrict refrigerant flow, diminishing the heat transfer capabilities of the condenser and A/C system. Newer style, mini-tube condensers cannot be flushed and should always be replaced along with the compressor. Condenser style comparison
