Response from Sporty's Wright Bros
Sorry to hear your motor is not running, one thing you can try is checking all the wiring to make sure the connectors are in the correct slot, if so then you can contact our customer service for a replacement. Thank you for your order and I apologize for the issues.

undesirable product quality
Compressor blades on two stages were nonexistent. Shoddy solders on wires, secured by glue or weak sealant. A wire became unattached by touching it. Good idea for training and display purposes, I would not recommend purchase because of the problems I experienced.
