I have a sullair 185 that just turns over and doesn’t fire up u til it’s in the shop for an hour and warms up when it’s below 32 degrees.

2013 sullair 185 no start?
by: Doug in s.d.ca.

Tried draining the fuel tank and new fuel?

You're probably doing all this, but...

5. Crack open one service line.

6. Place the WARM-UP control in the START
position.

7. Press the ENGINE SWITCH to the ON position.

8. In cold weather, press the cold weather
starting aid button. Hold button for 10 to 30
seconds and then release.

9. Momentarily press the ENGINE SWITCH to
the START position to engage the starter:
release the switch when the engine starts.

10. After 30 seconds (the annunciator light will
go off after 30 seconds) Turn the IDLE
WARM-UP SWITCH from START to RUN to
put the compressor in full operation.

What engine? Correct sub-freezing oil?
