Unfortunately, yes, DC pumps generally last 5-10 years at most and that is if they are very well designed. AC pumps can last decades, not so when you add the electronics into the mix. Since the parts are no longer available and even if they were it would be hard to justify a $100-$120 part on something this old when you can buy a brand new 6105 for $285.
