If you are using 6CFM vacuum pump then it's need 16 OZ.of oil & you should change every 10 Hrs of vacuuming.You can use Yello jacket vacuum pump oil also.

My Zoeller M53 Sump Pump Shorted out since the gasket seems to have partially rotted after 2 years Itis not used that often. I opened the wrong area of the pump and drained part of the oil. WHAT TYPe...


If your seal or gasket failed and water penetrated into the motor cabinet how certain are you that whatever you have done has actually remedied the underlying issue of the pump being grounded?

A new M53 is ~$125 - $150 and the oil is not something you can walk into the hardware store and pick up off the shelf. I'd want to be certain you have fixed the ground first. Having worked on these in the past it is unlikely you are going to fix anything wrong with the winding, especially for less than a new unit.

If all is OK and the oil is all you need ask around at local pump repair shops for 10 or 20 weight non-detergent pump oil...they should know what you want and if they sell it, you should be all set. As for the amount, pour it in slowly until you see the winding is fully submerged. You need to leave room at the top to allow for thermal expansion of the oil.

Changed the oil on my 2006 accent one week ago. Have made a few 50 mile trips since the change with no problems and no leakage. Today on the highway the oil and engine lights came on. Loud valve-type...


Have the vehicle properly diagnosed... it could very well be the oil pump - don't risk burning up the engine by oil starvation... get someone to check the oil pressure.

We have a robinair cooltech 34700z, looking for directions to change pump oil, can anyone help? thanks


For change vacuum pump oil follow the bellow step: Press main menu then keep pressing up or down arrow key till display show "CHANGE VACUUM OIL" then press "YES" key. Now vacuum pump will run for two minute & stop automatically. When pump stop you just open the oil drain cap and drain all used oil from pump (oil drain cap located outside of the machine near high & low side hose). After draining all used oil replace oil drain cap and fill 5 ounce new ROBINAIR vacuum pump oil then press "YES" key and keep filling oil up to middle of sight glass of vacuum pump. Press "STOP" key to complete the process.

NOTE: Do not over fill the pump & do not use any COMPRESSOR oil on the vacuum pump!

I am assuming when you refer to machine, you are actually refering to a vacuum pump?

Not clear what you are referring too on this one. Can you provide more details?

Engine oil indicator blinking


Sounds like it could be a sludge issue which can be caused from using the incorrect oil. It is a very specific synthetic type of oil that VW suggests and when you don't use it the engine can actually 'gunk' up and cause turbo failure. (This problem happened when a non-vw dealer sold me my car with the wrong type of synthetic in it and my turbo seized) 
Google: "1.8t specific oil"
