4.   Component Obsolescence

If the parts of the machine are no longer available from the manufacturer or from any third-party suppliers, then it’s best to replace the machine with a new one.

5.   Inability of Adapting Modifications

If the marketing demands a new packaging design or size. Replacing the old one is better than modifying the machine and forcing it to do on what it was not designed to.
