What is the masters opinion on generic parts - you know - things like drive belts, evaporator fans, thermostats, hi limit switches , solenoids?

Any generics to definitely avoid?

Most of the generic parts are repackaged OEM parts, I have had as many problems with OEM as Generic.

I guarantee all my work for 1 year, part and labor.  It's just not worth taking a chance on warranty callbacks because I saved a couple bucks on the part.  Plus, OEM parts have a one year warranty so I just send 'em back to AP Wagner (which isn't very often).

I'll confess that I have cheated on a couple dryer jobs and used generic thermal fuses.  Same guarantee, though, so it's my ayss if'n it breaks during warranty.
