"14 year old Rheem"
I owned a Rheem classic viii high effeciency heat pump since 1995. I had three problems over its life. The defrost card failed twice and the compressor pressure line failed due to being improperly supported from the factory. The lline cracked just downstream of the compressor. The compressor is about to fail now. It keeps shutting down on the thermal over heat, but the pressures look good. It has been a fairly good unit all things considered. Two of my friends installed similar Rheem units at about the same time. All three lasted between 12 and 14 years, so that appears to be about the life of the unit.
