Most of the time, it's faulty because the person doing the work fails to do it properly or it's too much effort to repair it correctly. The good news ...

Re: Help picking a compressor

-Am is an Import knock-off. Non-AM is Brown box OEM. See same failure rates with either. The best result is just doing the repair correctly. Both have the same warranty.
