If the oil is leaking from the heads above the cylinder, the unit has defective rings. If unit is leaking oil below cylinder the unit has a bad gasket.

Why is my compressor leaking oil?

where is it leaking oil from?
From the dipstick?
from the tank?
from the sump plug?

If it is leaking from the tank you may have piston/cylinder damage that allows the oil to escape into the tank.

V09a1aa4ak oil capacity

There is no need to add oil to an ac compressor unless you have had a massive leak. new compressors come with the right amount of oil. The compressor oil circulates with the gas and by the time the gas pressure drops from a leak then the amount of oil leaked out is just a few drops. Excessive oil in the system stops the TX valve from working and causes problems . If still in doubt then talk to an accredited ac specialist

We have Atlas copco XA 137 dd model and the compressor oil leak/mix hugely with the delivery air.kindly please advise what might be the reason.

I'm not familiar with this compressor per say , but if the compressor is a piston compressor, it may be over-filled with oil or there may be blow-by of oil past the piston rings, as in a car that blows oil past the rings. There should be a way to test for compression and if the rings are leaking.

HDC 2HP 5 Gal Pancake Air Compressor - replaced pressure switch - now takes long time to pump tire - motor runs long time - slow recovery - actually overheated and melted off the plastic part on muffler....

Your compressor takes standard 30 weight compressor oil or 30 weight motor oil... you need to put in the correct amount. The slow recovery is due to a leak somewhere. after adding the proper amount of oil, run the compressor and use a soapy solution to check for leaks. Check especially the tube that runs from the compressor head to the tank, and also check the air connection at the pressure switch. When you find the leak, you can disconnect the connection and use Teflon tape on the male end connector.

Why air compressor model: MH75 intercooler leaked with dirty oil? Please state also what is the causes, recommended and effect if not change anything.

With out more info I can only pass along what I typically see while in the field. Inner coolers experience a lot of high temps and varying pressures. After a while of expansion and contraction they sometimes fail. This is true for both rotary screw and piston type compressors. As for the dirty oil all oil lubricated compressors pass some oil. this oil plates out in the system. This plating / residue can be linked to the oil used. compressor oil is formulated so their is less carbon and residue built up while lets say oil for your car is formulated differently. I know from experience some auto type oils build carbon badly if used in a compressor. their are several causes but mainly poor maintenance ,this causes more wear and the compressor passes more oil. even small things like leaks that allow unfiltered air into the compressor will cause the oil to become contaminated thus the dirt in the oil plates out in the system as oil is passed and carries over. the dirty oil you see coming out from the leak is contamination that has plated out in the system. what damage is done is done. At this point in time my recommendation would be use a good compressor type oil, do good maintenance, change oil and filters at the specified schedule more often if in a dirty environment and repair/replace the inner cooler. Now if you want to go further you can disassemble and clean parts, coolers etc. You can also purchase cleaners for some compressor that will remove build up that has plated out in the system. However please be careful and make sure the cleaner is compatible with your compressor. If not it may damage seals ,gaskets, o rings etc. hope this helps you.

Oil leaking around compressor

The system is under gas leak. When no gas, the compressor pumps the oil. It's not safe compressor. Don't run the unit. Call repairman for finding out leak and arrest. Then gas charge after vacuum the system. Helpful?

if oil is leaking on the compressor you may have a valve cover gasket leak have that replaced and that will stop your leak problem.your compressor has a leak in it also thtas why its not engaging. you should have it dye tested in order to find out what really is leaking in the system.
