Where do you oil the air ratchet


Put a few drops in the end where the air hose connects every time you use it. Put oil in the air inlet end and squeeze the trigger to force the oil through to lubricate the rotor vanes and bearings. Also do this before you store the ratchet in the drawer so that oil sits in the ratchet protecting the internals when not in use keeping the rust away.

Earthquake 3/8" Air Ratchet will not operate . I left it in my garage. I go back to using. After two months and it doesn't work is never been used. But once.


Did you put a few drops of oil in the air inlet end? Then connect to the air compressor hose. Make sure you have at least 90 ft lbs of air presssure.

I have a milwalkie 1/2 inch drive air rachet ...all of a sudden now it wont work when you hit the trigger air just comes out where the top of the rachet joins to the bottom half...is there a way to fix it?


it sounds like the viens in the air motor may be stuck. try pouring some "Air Tool Oil" or any thin oil will do, even veg oil. when pouring it in make sure to pull the trigger so that the oil goes into the ratchet. let it soak for a while and try it. I hope this works for you.

When air is turned on it wont stop turning


The trigger valve is leaking. Disassemble it and find if the seal has failed or is sticking. This is a fairlky common problem with air tools,
ake sure you ALWAYS out air tool oil in the tools daily.

I have a brand new husky 1/2'' air ratchet. It was working fine yesterday and today I went to use it, no go. When I hit the trigger, air just shoots out of the release port. The ratchet does not turn. ...


There could be a couple of things wrong with it. First and foremost make sure your compressor has the correct cfm's to operate the tool. Psi is only half the battle when it comes to air tools. Second, make sure that your reversing switch on the ratchet is properly engaged. Sometimes it will get stuck in the middle. You may have a crimped hose so check the hose. There may have been debris in the line that got into the motor. If this is the case, then you are going to need to have to take it apart to see what is wrong. If you just bought it though you should take it back to Home Depot. I had a customer who basically had the same thing happen. He used the ratchet twice and the valve pin cap just popped off. It is plastic and just broke in two. I tried to look up the part and it is unavailable. Husky is made by Campbell Hausfeld for Home Depot. Sometimes it is not that easy to get parts for certain models. I believe they make a run of tools and then discontinue the line they just made, and do not make parts available. You could try taking it back to Home Depot and swapping it out for a new one. Or my suggestion would be get your money back and by a better brand ratchet like IR or CP.

Ratchet/click stops do not work,but spring still reels in,no rust or dents in any part


catch pawl in the reel is shot. I used to work in places where this happened. The only solution is tie the hose off on to a stationary object.
The only other solution is replace the reel..
