Oil overfilled on new compressor
(South Africa )
50lt, 2hp compressor oil sight glass
Hi Bill. I purchased a 50lt, 2hp compressor.
Nowhere in the operating manual did it say how much oil to add or that the oil level should be within the red circle on the clear plastic level indicator.
I proceeded to fill the sump right to the top of the indicator. I ran the compressor for approximately 15 minutes at various intervals just to test.
It didn't sound right to me so I stopped and googled the filling process(which I should have done in the first place). I removed the sump plug and drained to the correct level.
My question is, will I have damage from running it for 15 minutes with the oil overfilled?
Thanks, regards Erin. South Africa
