Troubleshooting

 Minor problems often can be fixed without calling customer service.

WARNING!

TO REDUCE THE RISK OF INJURY FROM MOVING PARTS AND/OR ELECTRICAL SHOCK, TURN POWER SWITCH OFF AND DISCONNECT GROUNDED PLUG FROM ELECTRICAL OUTLET BEFORE PERFORMING TROUBLESHOOTING CHECKS.

Problem
POSSIBLE CAUSE 
CORRECTIVE ACTION
Vacuum will not run  No electricity Make sure electrical outlet has voltage (A qualified electrician may need to be contacted)
Loss of suction, wet pick-up

 1. Full tank

2. Clogged hose

3. Clogged filter

1. Drain and clean tank

2. Remove hose and clean debris

3. Clean or replace filter

 Loss of suction, dry pick-up

1. Full tank

2. Clogged hose

Air Compressors

 Troubleshooting
Problem
POSSIBLE CAUSE 
CORRECTIVE ACTION
There is low pressure, not enough air, or the compressor does not stop.

1. The tank ball valve is open.

2. There is a leak in the fittings.

3. There is a prolonged or excessive use of air.

4. The compressor is not large enough.

5. There is a hole in the air hose.

6. The tank leaks.

7. The seals are blown.

8. The valve leaks.

9. There is a leaking or worn piston.

1. Close the ball valve.

2. Check fittings with soapy water. Tighten or reseal leaking fittings. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.

3. Decrease the amount of air used. 

4. Check the air requirement of the accessory. If it is higher than the CFM and the pressure supplied by the compressor, you need a larger compressor. Most accessories are rated at 25% of the actual CFM while running continuously.

5. Check and replace if necessary

WARNING

6. Immediately replace the tank. DO NOT attempt to repair.

7. Replace the compressor assembly.

8. Replace the compressor assembly.

9. Replace the compressor assembly.

Air leaks from the regulator or the regulator does not regulate air pressure.

 The internal parts of the regulator are dirty or damaged.

Replace the regulator or internal parts

 The regulated pressure gauge reading drops when the air accessory is being used.

1. This is normal.

2. The compressor is not large enough.

1. If the pressure drops too low, adjust the regulartor while the accessory is used.

2. Check the air requirement of the accessory. If it is higher than the CFM and the pressure supplied by the compressor, you need a larger compressor. Most accessories are rated at 25% of the actual CFM while running continuously.

The pressure relief valve opens.

1. The tank pressure exceeds the normal rating pressure.

2. The pressure switch is stuck.

1. Replace the pressure switch.

2. Replace the pressure switch.

The motor will not run.

1. Tank pressure exceeds the preset pressure switch limit.

2.The fuse is blown or the circuit breaker tripped.

3.The check valve is stuck in the open position.

4.The wire gauge in the cord is wrong or the extension cord is excessive.

5. there are loose electrical connections.

6. the motor's thermal overload protection has tripped.

7. The motor, capacitor or safety valve is defective.


1. The motor will start automatically when the tank pressure drops below the tank cut-in pressure.

2. Replace the blown fuse or reset the circuit breaker.Do not use a fuse or circuit breaker with a higher rating than specified for your branch circuit.Check for low voltage and proper extension cord size.Disconnect other applications from the circuit. Operate the compressors on a dedicated circuit.

3. remove and clean or replace.

4. Check for proper gauge and extension cord length.

5. Contact an authorized service center.

6. Turn the air compressor off, unplug the power cord and wait until the motor has cooled down. Plug in the power cord only after the motor has cooled down, waiting at least five minutes to make sure the thermal overload protector has recovered.

7.have the compressor serviced by a qualified technician.

 

Care and Maintenance

WARNING : To avoid personal injury, always shut off and unplug the unit and relieve all air pressure from the system before performing.

Regular maintenance will ensure trouble-free operation.

Task
SERVICE INTERVAL
Description
Drain the tank  Daily To prevent corrosion inside the tank, the condensation must be drained at the end of every workday. Be sure to wear protective goggles. Relieve the air pressure in the system and then open the ball valve on the bottom of the tank.
Check the relief valve

Daily

Pull the relief valve on the ring daily to ensure that it is operating properly and to clear the valve of any possible obstructions.

Clean the air filter

Weekly

A dirty filter will reduce the unit’s performance and life. To avoid any contamination inside the pump, the filter should be cleaned frequently and replaced on a regular basis. Foam filter should be cleaned in warm and soapy water.

Test for leakage Monthly Check all connections to see if tight. A small leak of any of part (the tank, hoses, pipe connections or transfer tubes) will reduce the unit’s performance. Spray a small amount of soapy water around the area of the suspected leak with a spray bottle. If bubbles appear, repair or replace the faulty component. Do not overtighten any connections. 
Storage  N/A Before storing the unit for a long period, use an air blow gun to clean all dust and debris from the compressor. Disconnect and coil the power cord. Pull the pressure relief valve to release all pressure from the tank. Drain all moisture from the tank. Cover the entire unit to protect it from moisture and dust.
