Poured oil into wrong hole on silent compressor by accident

by Michael

Just purchased a silent compressor. Accidentally confused the air intake and poured oil into it - maybe 50ml? Worried about what might happen. Have tried turning it upside down but very little came out. Should I switch it on / is there another way to fix it?


Thanks

Well, with any luck, the air filter sucked most if not all of it up. Remove the filter to see what's there after the filter. Maybe some any more up with a rag (clean, no frizzies).

Tell us what you find. Also give us a model/make please.
