Generic Parts

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.

some generic parts don't even fit the product that they were designed for, And if you do any type of warrenty work you cann not use these parts anyway

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.
