Use only special oil for air compressors. It's higher refined and usually clear in color. They have the exact stuff called for at sears. Hope this helps.

What type oil for model 90234 4 HP 10 gallon


The model number is not enough info but assuming it's a run of the mill, Home Depot or Craftsman type electric air compressor, you need to buy compressor pump oil at Wal Mart or an auto parts store. Please don't use Automotive motor oil because that's not going to withstand the heat of your compressor pump and you'll be buying a new compressor because of it. If your compressor has a gasoline, 4 Hp. motor, it needs Mobil 1 synthetic and change it after every 30 hours of operation.

Craftsman service manuals


I am assuming your enquiry is about the type of lube oil used in the pump section of the compressor. It would have helped if you had provided the model number of the compressor. In any case craftsman suggests all oil lubed compressors use synthetic non-detergent compressor oil.

Something like this would be required.

My new 80 gallon Craftsman Professional air compressor's oil turned dark right away. I changed the oil and it happened again. Is there a problem? Thanks, Trevor


Problem sounds like the type of oil being used. The oil should be a gold color. It will get dark over time but not like oil in a car. Check your owners manual to be sure that the right oil is being used.

Compressors use a 30 weight non detergent oil. If you don't have a manual Go to any Sears Home and garden Department and they will be able to help you.

THE COMPRESSOR IS BLOWING OIL OUT IN MIST ALL AROUND THE UNIT.


More information is needed as there are two common styles of air compressors: 1. oiless motor and 2.oil type where the oil level to the engine needs to be maintained.

Even with type 1. are you using an inline oiler?  History is needed. How old is the compressor, make, model, how much use did you buy it new?  How long has the problem been going on?
