ANTLIA AN-2021 compressor shaft locked
I have an ANTLIA AN-2021 21 Litre Air Compressor bought in Australia and brought with me when I had to return home to Scotland for family reasons.
I use it mainly for topping up the tyre pressures on two vehicles.
Was working fine until yesterday but now will not start.
When switched on (briefly) Motor just hums. Took off cover to check capacitor and found that direct shaft is locked.
Pressure is empty, condensation drained and oil level on red spot in sight glass.
How can I free it.
I am not very mechanically minded. Can you help, I am a pensioner and cannot afford to have it 'looked at' professionally.
