clarke compressor sounds funny
Hi having no Knowledge of compressor I thought I'd ask the people that will know.
It's a big compressor 150 - 200 litres
I have been told it's 30amps. But I only plug into normal house hold plug sockets I.e 13 amp.
First time it fills perfect sounds good.
Then when it refills it self it really sounds like it is not getting the power it needs.
But why if it sounds fine to start first time. It starts really slow and builds up speed as it goes.
I have no idea where to look or start.
Hope u understand.
I have a feeling it's the motor rather than anything else.
If you do not power the compressor with the amperage required, and you attempt to get it running against load (with some air in the tank already) it will have a hard time starting.
I am puzzled as to why, if you know what amperage the compressor requires, you would under power it and expect it to work properly?

by J Michael
I have acquired a Clarke AC2002A ( POS1 at the end of model number ) and I have been looking all over for an online "Owners Manual " that someone does not want $30.00 for !!!
Can anyone give me any guidance as to where I might be able to see one ?
This one is twin tank....RED in color with a large " Pioneer Air " label on it....States 2 hp 2-2gal tanks....5 CFM @ 90 PSI and total of 115 PSI.....
I am concerned about "Exactly" what type and name brand of oil to use to change the oil in this compressor...it has been sitting for a while..
