API 7600 compressor problems

Hey guys,

I just purchased an API 7600 for a very good price. The previous owner says that it worked fine, but I found a serious issue with the compressor. When I turn the ratio just past 0, the compressor crushes the signal. This is with the threshold at +10 and a very low level on the mic pre. Also, even when I have no signal going through the box, when I turn the ratio knob just past 0, you can see the GR meeter go down. The more I turn the ratio up, the GR meeter goes further down...yet again, with NO signal.

I'm about to call API to see about a repair, but I wanted to know if anyone else had this problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
