Open the hood to your car, and find the dipstick. This is where your oil is kept at. Make sure to have a cloth with you, preferably a shop towel. Pull the dipstick out, and wipe with a paper towel. Put the stick back into the holder, and pull out again. Hold eye level and check where the oil left a marking. There should be measurements on your dipstick. Oil should always be checked monthly, or even weekly. This prevents your engine from blowing up or catching fire. If in need of oil, go to Advance Auto Stores, NAPA, or even walmart. Buy oil according to your budget , how many miles your car has on it. You will need five courts depending on your car. Double check with a sales Clerk.
ON a d55155 compressor, you will find the dipstick on the left side as you are facing the control panel. Notice a small black knob on the end-bell of the pump. Pull out the dipstick and notice the oil level line just up from the tip of the stick. Over-filling will cause oil to leak. Use 30wt non-detergent oil or compressor oil. Good luck
I Have a BRC-200 as well. On the air outlet there is a red twist top to adjust the amount of air it stops at. Turn the red dial in (down) and it will increase the pressure. Turn it out (up) and it will decrease ithe pressure before it stops compressing. If you go to hig, the valve will blow (been there lols). Mine is oil filled btw...
There are usually two gages, one for the pressure in the tank, the other is for the regulated pressure in the hose going to whatever tool you have connected. I assume the tank filled up and the tank gage registers pressure in the tank. When you said you "opened the gage" I am guessing that you turned the knob counter-clockwise which would be the normal direction to open a valve. However, this is not a valve, it is a spring loaded regulator device. When you turn the knob counterclockwise you are removing all pressure from the spring which sets the regulator to allow zero pressure in the hose. Turn the knob clockwise to increase the pressure in the hose.
I hope this was helpful.
Pull the dipstick and notice the notch cut into both sides at bottom (push dipstick all the way in to check oil level). Fill to top of notch. Lowest safe oil level is bottom of notch. This unit does not hold much oil. Always use the compressor on level ground (tilted compressor could cause a lack of lubrication). Good luck
try taking the gauge off, do that arfter you drain it from the safty valve, and then run it and see if eny air comes out, if not thers a block, unless your regulator as jamed up inside, try taking the knob right off and push it down with a screw driver or something alike, air should come out ether into your airline or on the way out of taking the device out of the hole should drop psi in the airline through a little hole on the regulator. if none of this happens then i dunno, if it does be careful not to strip the knob putting it back on.
What happens when you twist the regulated pressure knob, as you would to increase the regulated pressure? Does the knob turn? Does it turn until it stops, but still reads zero? If so, it sounds like the regulator pressure spring is broken. That's inside the regulator, and you will probably have to replace the regulator.
Depends on what plan it was made in...
If you have the glass type sight... Only to the max you can see (top of site), then run it for a few mins, let it sit for a few more mins then add more if the level is near the bottom of the sight glass.
If it's the dipstick model that pushed in, there will be an upper and a lower level mark (holes, or checkered section) Keep it between the top and bottom marks.
Finally if it's the older screw-in type, remove the dipstick and wipe it. Set it back in BUT don't screw it in. Keep within the range on the dipstick from that position. Then of course screw it back in/
