Comment:
This unit almost caught fire and burned my house down. I caught it before it did, it had stopped working so I went to move it out from the wall when it arc'd and being the fireman that I am I unplugged it immediately. It would appear that the compressor switch is a common issue with these units from what I have read. Only lasted me about a year and half.
