Question about Makita MAC5200 Electric Powered Air Compressors
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Remove the rear cover Item 33 this link:
Gently start rocking the fan GENTLY back and forth by gripping it in the large center area and see if it will rotate. If you ran it completely out of oil; the piston, piston rings or rod end bearings will seize up. If you can not rotate it by hand and your sure it has locked up... you are going to have to overhaul the pump or replace it. The link above is a good source for parts.
Before considering an overhaul... read out the motor windings after the pressure switch to see if the motor windings are open or read a resitance value under 480 Ohms.
Depending on the motor pump used most of them have thermal overloads that will self reset when the unit cools off. It should self reset in less than 15 minutes if there is one. Ones without a thermal overload end up cooking the motor windings or tripping the house circuit CB if they run out of oil.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
