(See Installing Oil and Oil BreatherCap section.)Installing the Air ChuckNote: The use of a sealant tape is recommendedon the threads of the Air Chuck to prevent airleakage.1. Thread the Air Chuck into the Air Regulator byturning the Air Chuck clockwise.2. Securely tighten the Air Chuck in place with awrench. (See Figure 3)Initial Start-Up Procedure1. Open the Air Tank Drain Valve to permit air toescape, preventing air pressure buildup in theair tank.2. Run the compressor for a minimum of 20minutes in this “no-load” position to lubricate thepiston and bearings.3. Close Air Tank Drain Valve. Your compressor isready for use.Depending on the CFM draw of the tools beingoperated, your new Air Compressor can be used foroperating paint sprayers, air tools, grease guns,airbrushes, caulking guns, abrasive blasters, tire &plastic toy inflation, spraying weed killer andinsecticides, etc. Proper adjustment of the AirPressure Regulator is necessary for all of theseoperations. Refer to the air pressure specificationsprovided with the tool you are using.Figure 3. Installing the Air ChuckNote: DO NOT over tighten Air Chuck.4

General OverviewTo compress air, the piston moves up and down inthe cylinder. On the down stroke air is drawn inthrough the valve inlet. The discharge valve remainsclosed. On the upstroke of the piston air iscompressed. The inlet valve closes and air is forcedout through the discharge valve, through the checkvalve, and into the air tank. Working air is notavailable until the compressor has raised the tankpressure above that required at the air serviceconnection. The air inlet filter openings must bekept clear of obstructions, which could reduce airdelivery of the compressor.Attaching an Air HoseYour Air Compressor is supplied with a 1/4" QuickDisconnect Air Chuck. Once you have correctlyinstalled the Air Chuck (See Installing the Air Chuckon p.4) your compressor will be ready to accept airhoses equipped with 1/4" male air couplers.Note: Use only air hoses rated for use with 115psiair pressure or higher.To install an air hose, equipped with a 1/4" malecoupler:1. Pull back on Air Chuck outer sleeve to allowcoupler to be fully inserted into Air Chuck.2. Insert coupler into Air Chuck.3. Release outer sleeve of Air Chuck.4. Verify that air hose is securely connected to AirChuck by pulling lightly on air hose.(See Figure 5)Installation and LocationLocate the compressor in a clean, dry and wellventilated area. The compressor should be located12 to 18 inches from walls or any other obstructionwhich would interfere with airflow. Place thecompressor on a firm, level surface. Thecompressor is designed with heat dissipation finswhich allow for proper cooling. Keep the fins (andall other parts which collect dust or dirt) clean. Aclean compressor runs cooler and provides longerservice. Do not place rags, containers or othermaterial on top of the compressor.Figure 5. Attaching an Air HoseAdjusting the Air PressureYour Air Compressor is supplied with an AirPressure Regulator. This Regulator adjusts the airpressure.To increase air pressure, turn Air Regulatorclockwise.To decrease air pressure, turn Air Regulatorcounterclockwise.Connecting to Power SourceThis air compressor is designed to operate on aproperly grounded 120 volt, 60Hz, single phase,alternating current (ac) power source with a fused20 amp time delayed fuse or circuit breaker. It isrecommended that a qualified electrician verify theACTUAL VOLTAGE at the receptacle into which theunit will be plugged and confirm that the receptacleis properly fused and grounded. The use of theproper circuit size can eliminate nuisance circuitbreaker tripping while operating your air compressor.Extension CordsFor optimum Air Compressor performance anextension cord should not be used unlessabsolutely necessary. If necessary, care must betaken in selecting an extension cord appropriate foruse with your specific Air Compressor. Select aproperly grounded extension cord which will matedirectly with the power source receptacle and theAir Compressor power cord without the use ofadapters. Make certain that the extension cord isproperly wired and in good electrical condition.Maximum length of extension cord should be 50feet. Minimum wire size of extension cord should be12 gauge.(See Figure6) 6.
