    BMS/Coolmist FSB meth, how many FSB's have you gone through?

    Not to pick at the product (Terry does a fine job trusting the consumer when it comes to diagnostic issue's for warranty exchanges), but I just broke my 2nd FSB Click here to enlarge within 2-3weeks of receiving it. No more meth until then. How many have you guys gone through? I know my brother has gone through two.

    symptoms: you hear a small "pop" like a short circuit followed by smoke or smell (1st one was a burn't electronic smell, second one sent smoke into the cabin via HVAC vents, mainly on the passenger side).

    Odd, I heard the BMS FSB should be fairly bulletproof because it doesn't have any moving parts like the turbine-based flow sensors.

    My SnowPerformance flow sensor has been behaving well for two years in all but the hottest temperatures. Part of it has to do with having a 90/10 or 100% meth mix in my tank in 95-100 degree temperatures. Considering what I put it through, it's held up quite well.

    YOu got lucky Ben and bought a nice used unit! lol My Snow flow sensor crapped on me and worked intermittently so I chucked it along with my Lebonte unit. I since bought the Aquamist unit HE505 and its working beyond belief...Freaking thing soaking in 90/10 mix for weeks at a time, as soon as I turn the meth system on the sucker works like a charm...Too bad Aquamist has these units on backorder for like months already..

    We've sold a few hundred and it's fairly rare that one fails. Maybe we get one per month? CM warranties them if something burns out. It's just a solid state circuit so should never fail unless the pump is shorting out or not properly fused, etc. Ensure you have a ~10amp fuse on them.

    Oh no, hopefully my car's not having an issue then!
