Speedaire Westward model 4TW29B
Hello and thank you for your help.
I've reviewed the trouble shooting area of your site.
I have a Westward model 4TW29B.
When I plug it in, the electric motor started perfectly and it spins the Flywheel perfectly.
However, the compressor motor (part number 3WGX6) clanks and the unit no longer compresses air (the sound is similar to a small piece of metal being thrown around).
The replacement unit from Granger is 360.00. But I was wondering if it was just the reed valves and gasket kit? is so, I would like to fix it myself.
I'm not certain if the cost of parts is worth the unit.
What do you think the problem is?
Please advise and thank you,
