I used to work at a tool repair shop and we saw this happen all the time. It could be several different things. You should get it serviced. That isn't too expensive.

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.

I have a CP 828 3/8" air ratchet it turns but has no power and I have 100 PSI behind it. I have always oiled it. Can you please help me. Thanks, Rob

If you oil it regularly you may need to replace the veins inside the motor.When you do this be sure to check the bearings on each end of the motor.Also check the exhaust and inlet screens to make sure they are not clogged.

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.

When you put a socket on my 3/8 air ratchet you can hold it and it doesnt turn the socket

Make sure your tank is pressurized before using, Also, ratchets have an air adjustment knob that you can adjust how much pressure and power the ratchet puts out. Make sure you oil ratchet before each use with air tool oil
