Just got mine yesterday and was very impressed. CONDOR MDR 11 / 11 EA is the brand switch Quincy uses on this compressor. Today was another story as the unit would not go on. Took the cover off the switch and "lo and behold".......one of the contacts that is spring loaded is busted leaving a gap between Line and Motor. All it took was one use and it was busted. Some research online revealed that Condor switches are crap. The compressor has a total of 1:15 use. Took that long for the switch to mechanically break. Looks like Quincy used "China's best" for this. I sent an email and am waiting for a response. The switch is $29 and readily available................to break again. This thing didnt fry......it broke. Now Im wondering if I bought the right compressor.
