On this machine the noise you are hearing is a broken support inside the compressor. I have seen compressors work for years with this noise(mine-lol) I know, right.

Or on the other hand it could last a week like this. The only way to fix this is to replace the compressor. This is a rather expensive repair though. A compressor for this machine could run $150 or more. And double the price of the compressor for the labor involved. At this point I would be concerned about the machine. Basically it could go at anytime.

If you have anymore questions about this, please feel free to ask. I will be more than happy to answer anymore questions about this.

Thanks Again for using!
