~
The air compressor should be operated on a dedicated 15 amp circuit. If the circuit
does not have 15 free amps available, a larger circuit must be used. Always use more
air hose before utilizing extension cords. All extension cords used must be 12 gauge
with a maximum length of 25 ft. The circuit fuse type must be a time delay. Low volt-
age could cause damage to the motor.
If the air compressor is in operation, all guards and covers should be attached or
installed correctly. If any guard or cover has been damaged, do not operate the
equipment until the proper personnel has correctly repaired the equipment. The power
cord should be free of any moving parts, twisting and/or crimping while in use and
while in storage.
There are surfaces on your air compressor that while in operation and thereafter can
cause serious burns if touched. The equipment should be allowed time to cool before
any maintenance is attempted. Items such as the compressor pump and the outlet
tube are normally hot during and after operation.
Operation of the air compressor should always be in a position that is stable. Never
use the air compressor on a rooftop or elevated position that could allow the unit to
fall or be tipped over. Use additional air hose for elevated jobs.
Always wear ANSI Z87.1 approved safety glasses with side shields when the air
compressor is in use. Turn off the air compressor and drain the air tank before
performing any type of maintenance or disassembly of the hoses or fittings. Never
point any nozzle or sprayer toward any part of the body or at other people or animals.

Avoid using the air compressor in confined areas. Always have adequate space
(12 inches) on all sides of the air compressor. Also keep children, pets, and others
out of the area of operation. This air compressor does not provide breathable air for
anyone or any auxiliary breathing device. Spraying material will always need to be
in another area away from the air compressor to not allow intake air to damage the air
compressor filter.
Never utilize the air compressor in the rain or wet conditions. Any electrical issues
or repairs should be performed by authorized personnel such as an electrician and
should comply with all national and local electrical codes. The air compressor should
also have the proper three prong grounding plug, correct voltage, and adequate fuse
protection.
Never operate the compressor near combustible materials, gasoline or solvent vapors.
If spraying flammable materials, locate the air compressor at least 20 feet away from
the spray area. Never operate the air compressor indoors or in a confined area.
Always drain the air compressor tank daily or after each use. If the tank develops a
leak, then replace the air compressor. Never use the air compressor after a leak has
been found or try to make any modifications to the tank. Never modify the air compres-
sor's factory settings which control the tank pressure or any other function.

Outlet
I
Grounding Pin
Grounding Instructions
This product should be grounded. In the event of an electrical
short circuit, grounding reduces the risk of electric shock by
providing an escape wire for the electric current. This product is
equipped with a cord having a grounding wire with an
appropriate grounding plug. (See the figure below.) The plug
must be plugged into an outlet that is properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Check with a qualified electrician or service
personnel if these
instructions are not
completely understood
or if in doubt as to
whether the tool is
properly grounded.
Location of the Air Compressor
The air compressor should always be located in a clean, dry,
and well ventilated environment. The unit should have at
minimum, 12 inches of space on each side. The air filter intake
should be free of any debris or obstructions. Check the air filter
on a daily basis to be sure it is clean and in working order.
Improper installation of the grounding plug will result in a risk
of electric shock. If repair or replacement of the cord or plug is
necessary, do not connect the grounding wire to either flat blade
terminal. The wire with insulation having an outer surface that is
green with or without yellow stripes is the grounding wire. Check
with a qualified electrician or serviceman if the grounding
instructions are not completely understood, or if in doubt as to
whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the
plug provided; if it will not fit the outlet, have the proper outlet
installed by a qualified electrician.
This product is for use on a circuit having a nominal rating of
120 volts and is factory-equipped with a specific electric cord
and plug to permit connection to a proper electric circuit. Make
sure that the product is connected to an outlet having the same
configuraUon as the plug. No adapter should be used with this
product. If the product must be reconnected for use on a
different type of electric circuit, qualified service personnel
should make the reconnection.
Extension Cords
Use only a 3-wire extension cord that has a 3-blade grounding
plug, and a 3-slot receptacle that will accept the plug on the
product. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition.
When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy
enough to carry the current your product will draw. Cords must
not exceed 25 feet and No. 12 AWG size must be used. An
undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss
of power and overheating.
Break In Procedures
No break in procedure is required by the user. This product is
factory tested to ensure proper operation and performance.
To Install the Air Intake Filter
Remove the plastic plug from the
compressor head. Remove the air intake
filter from the poly bag and thread it onto the
head of the compressor as shown.
The air compressor should be turned off and unplugged from
the power source before any maintenance is performed as well
as the air bled from the tank and the unit allowed time to cool.
Personal injuries could occur from moving parts, electrical
sources, compressed air or hot surfaces. The regulator
assembly must be attached before use. Failure to assemble
correctly could result in leaks and possible injury. If unsure of
assembly instructions or you experience difficulty in the assembly
please call your local service department for further instruction.
Quick Connect Assembly
1. Before assembly, be sure that the wa
Quick Connect (Q.C.) threads have a
sealant applied from the factory to prevent (, f\ :t==
leaks around the threa,ds. If no sealant is \
present, wrap the threaded portion with
Teflon tape.
2. Remove the regulator's plastic plug. Attach \
the Q.C. assembly to the air compressor by aligning the Q.C.
threads to the regulator on the manifold. Be certain to align
the threads before tightening to prevent thread damage.
3. After hand tightening, the assembly should be turned clock
wise 1 to 1.5 revolutions with a 13/16ths size wrench.
To prevent damage and leaks, do not over-tighten.
Lubrication and Oil
Remove the oil fill cap by turning it
counter-clockwise by hand. Fill the
compressor pump with an air compressor oil
such as SAE-30 non-detergent (API CG/CD
Heavy Duty) oil at slow intervals until the oil
reaches the center of the red circle in the
sight glass (see figure above). Use SAE-10
during extreme winter conditions.
Do not attempt to start the air compressor
without first adding oil to the crankcase. Serious damage can
result unless filled with oil The pump is shipped without oil from
the factory. Only use non-detergent oils since multi-viscosity
motor oils leave carbon deposits on pump components, thus
reducing performance and compressor life.

Drain the tank to release all tank air
pressure before removing the oil fill cap. Be
sure the air vent in the oil fill cap (see figure
to the right) is free from debris. If air vent
is blocked, pressure can build in crankcase
causing damage to the compressor and pos-
sible personal injury.

Operating Procedures
Daily Start-Up Procedures
CD Set the Auto-On/Off lever to the Off position.
@ Check the air compressor visually for any damage
or obstruction.
® Close the drain valve.
@ Check the oil level of the pump.
® Connect the air hose to the quick connect socket on
the regulator assembly by inserting the quick connect
plug on the air hose into the quick connect socket. The
quick connect socket collar will snap forward and lock
the plug into place providing an air tight seal between
the socket and plug. To release the air hose, push the
collar back on the quick connect socket.
® Plug the power cord into the proper receptacle.
(J) Turn the Auto-On/Off lever to the On-Auto position,
and the compressor will start and build air pressure in
the tank to cut-out pressure and then shut off
automatically.
® Adjust the regulator to a PSI setting that is needed for
your application, and be sure it is within the safety
standards required to perform the task. If using a
pneumatic tool, the manufacturer should have
recommendations in the manual for that particular
tool on operating PSI settings.
Note: The air compressor is now ready for use. The
following inflation and cleaning accessories packaged
with this unit should only be operated at maximum
pressure of 20-30 PSI: blow gun, tapered nozzle,
inflation needles, blow gun adapter.
Daily Shut-Down Procedures
1. Set the Auto-On/Off lever to the Off position.
2. Unplug the power cord from the receptacle.
3. Set the outlet pressure to zero on the regulator.
4. Remove any air tools or accessories. When draining
the tank, always use ear and eye protection. Drain the
tank in a suitable location; condensation will be present
in most cases of draining.
5. Open the drain valve allowing air to bleed from the
tank. After all of the air has bled from the tank, close
the drain valve to prevent debris buildup in the valve.

To ensure efficient operation and longer life of the air
compressor unit, a routine maintenance schedule should
be followed. The following schedule is geared toward a
consumer whose compressor is used in a normal working
environment on a daily basis. If necessary, the schedule
should be modified to suit the conditions under which your
compressor is used. The modifications will depend upon
the hours of operation and the working environment. Air
compressors used in an extremely dirty and/or hostile
environment will require a greater frequency of all
maintenance checks.
Oil Changing
For changing the pump oil, be sure to do the following:
1. Turn the unit off and unplug the power cord from the
receptacle.
2. Allow the compressor time to cool if it has been in
operation.
3. Open the drain valve to bleed all air from the tank.
4. Close the drain valve.
5. Remove the oil fill cap on the pump.
6. Remove the sight glass with a box end wrench or
socket. Drain the oil into a suitable container and
dispose of properly. The compressor may need to be
tipped slightly towards the drain hole to allow all of the
oil to drain.
Storage
For storing the air compressor, be sure to do the following:
1. Turn the unit off and unplug the power cord from the
receptacle.
2. Remove all air hoses, accessories, and air tools from
the air compressor.
3. Perform the daily maintenance schedule.
6
~
The air compressor should be turned off and unplugged
from the power source before any maintenance is
performed as well as the air bled from the tank and the
unit allowed time to cool. Personal injuries could occur
from moving parts, electrical sources, compressed air or
hot surfaces.
7. Reattach the sight glass. Note: Torque the sight glass
10-12 inch Ibs. when re-assembling. Be sure the gasket
is between the sight glass and the pump crankcase.
8. Refill the compressor pump with an air compressor oil
such as SAE-30 non-detergent (API CG/CD Heavy
Duty) oil at slow intervals until the oil reaches the center
of the red circle in the sight glass. Use a SAE-10 during
extreme winter conditions.
4. Open the drain valve to bleed all air from the tank.
5. Close the drain valve.
6. Store the air compressor in a clean and dry location.
Troubleshooting Guide
_ The air compressor should be turned off and unplugged from the power source before any
~ maintenance is performed as well as the air bled from the tank and the unit allowed time to cool.
Personal injuries could occur from moving parts, electrical sources, compressed air, or hot surfaces.
PROBLEM
Air leaks at the check valve
or at the pressure relief valve.
Air leaks between head and
cylinder.
Air leak from safety valve.
Pressure reading on the
regulated pressure gauge
drops when an accessory is
used.
Excessive tank pressure.
Motor will not start.
Excessive moisture in the
discharge air.
Air leaks from the tank body
or tank welds.
POSSIBLE CORRECTION
A defective check valve results in a constant air leak at the pressure relief valve
when there is pressure in the tank and the compressor is shut off. Drain the tank,
then remove and clean or replace the check valve.
Be sure of proper torque on head bolts. If leak remains, contact a service technician.
Operate the safety valve manually by pulling on the ring. If the valve continues to
leak when in the closed position, it should be replaced.
If there is an excessive amount of pressure drop when the accessory is used,
replace the regulator.
NOTE:
Adjust the regulated pressure under flow conditions (while accessory is being used).
It is normal for the gauge to show minimal pressure loss during initial use of the
tool.
Move the Auto-On/Off lever to the Off position. If the unit doesn't shut off, unplug it
from the power source and contact a service technician.
Make sure power cord is plugged in and the switch is on. Inspect for the proper size
fuse in your circuit box. If the fuse was tripped, reset it and restart the unit. If
repeated tripping occurs, replace the check valve or contact a service technician.
Remove the water in the tank by draining after each use. High humidity
environments will cause excessive condensation. Utilize water filters on your air
line.
NOTE:
Water condensation is not caused by compressor malfunction. Be sure the
compressor's air output is greater than your tool's air consumption rate.
Never drill into, weld or otherwise modify the air tank or it will weaken. The tank can
rupture or explode. Compressor cannot be repaired. Discontinue use of the air
compressor.
