    Mine sounds like a bicycle with a baseball card in its spokes. It works great, just louder than I would think. Is it normal?

    Compressor might have a loose bolt or isolation mount issue. Probably best to take it in to be looked at. Or maybe they can check it remotely. You could also try posting a recording here.
