• Check that you have plugged the power lead into a standard 240V 10Amp power point and turned the switch ON.

• Check that you have turned the air compressor ON/OFF button ON.

• The air tank may be full. Use your air tool and the air compressor should start when the pressure decreases to 85PSI.

If your compressor does not build up pressure

• Check that the tank drain tap is sealed.

• Check that the air tap is closed.

If your compressor smells like burnt oil

• Check the oil level as it may be low

• Compressor is being used beyond its 75% duty cycle. Allow to cool for 30 minutes before reusing compressor. Stay within the

75% duty cycle (refer to pages 5 and 8).

If these tips do not work please have your unit checked by an authorised service centre.
