Oil change

Only change oil if theres sludge inside the oil carter most times its special compressor oil check the oil level with the dipstick until his own sealing ring so as not to further suppress some people pushing it completely and then the compressor is too little lubrication and splash he absolutely nothing to lubricate the piston pin and piston cylinder wall. He may even just a little bit to be filled at maximum level, compressors are not comparable with English Car, s which have had to drive down oil levels to curb oil consumption since any. a compressor nor to the brim even stop then splash he no longer good.

Sounds like the tank check valve is bad. recommend replacing the check valve located at the end of the air discharge line and tank.

Hello - jusy wondering if the the lubricant in the compressor must be changed and if so how often. Thanks!

yeah it must be changed just like oil in a car engine. although u dont have combustion in the cylider u still have wear. think of it as a lawn mower. when u check the oil it should be brown. not black. after its been in there too long it needs changed. the way set service intervals is your own preference and judgement. because even the recomended intervals dont need to be kept exactly basicaly its life of equiptment vs cost of matenence. an air compressor does not hold much oil so the cost is cheap i change mine ofter. u cant over change it. but if u dont change often enough u reduce the life of it. u ether go by what the book says for how many hour of run time before changing it or like i said a little more often to increase life of the tool or you go a little less often to reduce the mantenance cost.
like i said if it my equiptment i change oil often so i know it will last. and just like a car, most air compressors have and air filter. this keeps dust from damaging the piston and cylider. depending on tbhe conditions u run it in you probly want to clean the filter or atleast check it at every oil change.

What kind of oil to change and how often

You must use compressor oil or at least 30W (straight weight)non-detergent oil in your compressor. Most compressor brands state the oil should be changed every 200 hours of use or three months if used regularly.
