Alton model 01205-11 3hp 11 gall compressor and starting issues
On turning on the above compressor it will make a few burping sounds but will not run until I cover the air intake opening with my finger. The actual air filter broke off a long time ago but this starting problem is quite recent. Do these symptoms indicate it is time for a new compressor?
