Motor broke away from mounting bracket on 60 gal version

While compressor was running, motor broke off the mounting bracket which caused the belt to spin off the motor and left the motor running wildly inside the cage. Looking at the bottom of the motor it seems like only 3 small welds were holding it in place....! What to do about this since it would appear that the only fix would be to have it welded once more..? Certainly looks like a recall would be in order for such a flimsy weld..

How 'bout coming back with a model number and perhaps a pic or two of the issue.

You can check for a recall - just google the model + "recall".
