Question about Air Tools & Compressors
Stupid thing start smoking. I take the plastic cover off and turn it back on, sparks are flying and then the collector catches fire which stops as soon as I unplug it. I take it apart to clean the collector, the brushes are chiped and worn. I lightly sand them and the collector, put it all back together turn it on exact same thing happens. Possilby one of the flat surfaces that makes up the collector is a little off compared to the others and is causing the issue? Kolbalt won't warranty it as they have a new manufactureer now.
You may have a short in the wiring if the fire stops when you unplug it. Sounds like something electrical is arcing. This is dangerous and you should take it to a qualified repair shop. Using it in this condition can cause serious injury or death.
