Bad compressor sound?


What does a compressor sound like when it's beginning to fail?

There are about 100 different sounds that it can make. Ok, slight exaggeration.

I've heard compressors that sounded like they were grinding themselves up. And they ran for years without failure.

Recording the sound and posting it may work better.
