Question about Clarke Power Products Inc AC2001 2HP 4 Gallon Pancake Tank Compressor

1 Answer

Oil covering pancake and pressure adjustments

My model ac2001 pancake compressor has a film of oil across the surface of the tank.
How do I check the oil and fill?
What should be used to add oil?

Also, the regulator seems to adjust the tank pressure but I can't find a place to increase/decrease the output pressure. For that matter it is unclear if the regulator increases the tank by going clockwise or counterclockwise. What are the two additional rings on the regulator- locking rings?

The paper work that came with the compressor is a parts list only. No operating instructions. Where can I download an operating mauel?

Typically on the inside cover of the electical box it will illustrate the cut-in/cut-out controls. There should also be a fill port above the pump end of the compressor. Do you have a sight glass on the side of the compressor *(around the area of the leaking oil) usually if its coming out its due to overfilling or tipping over of the compressor.

Ac2000b motor runs but builds no pressure in tank


Your compressor is worn out. It is repairable but you will quickly find out that the price of the rebuild kit and S+H is about the price of a new compressor at your local store.

Oil-less compressors cannot stand up to use and abuse they get like a oil compressor can but they are certainly affordable.

Motor startup trouble while pressure in tank


My first thought was that the check valve is allowing pressure back into the compressor and preventing the motor from turning. That's still my best guess right now.

I think the cold weather start symptom is what you would see with any engine/motor -- it requires more torque to get it going. In this scenario, if the check valve weren't leaking, it would start okay when cold.
