I have a Husky 10 gal. Vertical compressor, i have owned from one month and just started using it. I have oil level at half the window and after cycling a couple of times it starts to leak oil under the motor.

Oil leak

I tried tightening the botttom bolts, maybe got one click on the lock-nut, they are pretty tight, I took off the Saftey guard/motor cover. As I run the compressor oil is coming out of the copper windings of the motor on the Guage side. Is it possible that oil is leaking from the shaft of the compressor.

Curt, it may only be that a bolt or two is loose around the sump.

Have a look, tighten if you can, and let us know the result if you would.
