|I would not change only the relay and leave the 3-15 yr. age old overload in there , although you are right that it does not usually go bad. but it can go bad sooner than later and cause major problems. although rare, I did have one blow the outlet and the breakers which caused my customer and myself some negotiating, though this was an older home with 15 amp.breakers, I did replace the outlet and ..the breakers for them though I did not think that the overload could do that. To protect yourself against liability it might be a good idea to do so.
