Is there a difference between Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and genuine parts?

The simple answer is NO! When it comes to refrigeration compressors, a genuine part is installed at the time of manufacturing. It is typically more expensive as it comes standard with the branding and warranty of the compressor company. 

OEM spare parts are developed by the same manufacturer and sold without the logo or company branding. They are exactly the same as the genuine parts but are offered at a lower cost to the company.

The only real difference between these two options is the packaging, and let’s be honest… the packaging is thrown away anyway!

At Spare Exparts, we purchase our parts from the original source. These parts are reliable and offer the highest quality with much more value for your bottom line.
