Anyone ever see a 2 year old machine with a compressor this rusted out and deteriorated. It was rusted so bad the the pin is gone and refrigerant had leaked out the hole.

Probably a fire from a loose connection (corrosion?) that melted the seal and caused the leak,,,

We're starting to see condensation from the heat exchanger on Kitchenaid undercounter ice machines leaking on top of the compressor.  One actually shorted the start device and looked similar to this one.  Fairly new units (less than 5 years) with little or no effect on ice production.  Symptoms were visible leaks on the floor or a burning smell.
