SOURCE: Air Compressor

Dewalt recommends synthetic oil in their compressors. The dewlat part # 5130427-00 quart, and 5130702-00 for a 4oz size. Available at www.dewalt.com or their service center. I have been using the Lowes brand of synthetic compressor oil. Kobalt oil sells for about $7 and works great. If you do not use your compressor all day like I do, you can use the standard grade of Kobalt compressor oil that sells for around $3. Synthetic oil is for extreme conditions. Good Luck!

SOURCE: craftsman 1 gallon direct drive oil filled wont build air pressure

It sounds like you may have a broken reed on the diaphragm plate. This is located at the block. Remove the cover, and look for a cast metal assembly with fins. It will be attached to the side.

SOURCE: Oil capacity for craftsman air compressor circa 1978 model #106..

I have a 2hp craftsman air compessor with a two cylinder pump, Here is the info from my manual as far as oil capacitity:

Remove oil fill plug and slowly add
a compressor oil until it is even with the
top of the oil fill hole. NOTE: Do not
allow oil to be lower than 3/8"
from the top at any time. When filling
the crankcase, the oil flows very slowly
into the pump. If the oil is added too
quickly, it will overflow and appear to
be full. NOTE: Crankcase oil capacity is
approximately 16 fluid ounces.

I buy my compessor oil from Lowes in the tool department. It comes in 16oz and sells for about $3. I wouldnt worry about how many ounces it holds but rather that the oil level is to top of filler hole. Lowes also sells a synthetic oil for about $7 and is recommended for severe conditions (hot / cold / used all day). Good Luck!

    How many liters of compredssor oil to fill tha compressor tank


    I don't know which model of air compressor you own, some models require no oil whatsoever. The important thing to remember is that you should never put oil inside the tank. While it probably won't damage the compressor and may, in fact, be good for air tools, oil does not belong in the tank. The tank itself should contain clean, dry, air ONLY. Depending on the job you're performing, oil and water in the air tank will ruin your hard work, especially if you are spray painting. The air compressor motor does require oil (unless, again, it's oilless), just fill it through the oil filler hole until it barely starts to leak out. You can change the oil every year if you use your air compressor professionally. Most people who use their compressor only occasionally never change their oil or even check the level. My compressor is a 20 year old Campbell Hausfield with the original oil. I don't recommend that, just stating the facts...I do religiously drain the water out of the tank with the drain valve, and I have replaced the drive belt. Once.

    Whats the benifit of an oil less air compressor


    Oil free compressors are used when oil could contaminate food products, or maybe spraying where oil down the line would ruin a spray job, although adequate filtration to stop the oil getting to point of use

    Craftsman service manuals


    I am assuming your enquiry is about the type of lube oil used in the pump section of the compressor. It would have helped if you had provided the model number of the compressor. In any case craftsman suggests all oil lubed compressors use synthetic non-detergent compressor oil.

    Something like this would be required.

    What grade oil do I use to change out on my Chicago Pneumatic RPC-561VNS? The manual says a compressor grade non-deturgent oil should be used, but does no specify a grade.


    Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

    Compressor grade oils are basically SAE30 W oil. Read this:

    Rol-Air OILCOMP30W34C Air Compressor Pump Oil - 30W Quart features ,
    Specially engineered and tested to match the requirements of Rol-Air air
    compressors , Provides superior rust and corrosion protection.

    I.e SAE 30W oil / the same thing you would use in an older lawn mower engine or generator.

    What they don't tell you is because they have re-labeled the 30W oil to OILCOMP30W they can charge you big time for SAE 30W oil. The only difference is the label.

    Thanks for choosing FixYa,
    Kelly

    WHAT TYPE OF OIL CAN I USE IN MY TYPE 30 COMPRESSOR


    I am sure Ingersoll Rand would like you to use there all season select synthetic oil, or you can use a good quality R+O 100 oil, also known as SAE30 non detergent. do not use cheap oil for gas engines,,, buy a good name brand from a regular oil distributor, and specify yo are using it for an air compressor. and most manufactures will recommend you change it every 3 months.

    Makita MAC 5200 3 HP 5.2 Gallon electric compressor


    Use non detergent air compressor oil. It can be found at Lowes, Homedepot, and even Walmart. It is sold in small containers for about $2-3 dollars. A synthetic blend air compressor oil is needed when the unit is used in severe conditions. Synthetic air compressor oil sold at Lowes $6.95 and other stores will take more heat. Second choice is 30w non-detergent motor oil. Engine oils tend to produce carbon on the reed valves in the head if used extensively. I have been using the Lowes Kobalt brand of air compressor oil for some years in my Makita and Rol Air compressors with good results. The part number for Makita brand of oil is 18112-A quart size. It is only available by special order where I live. Good Luck!
