i shut my compressor down released the pressure changed the oil went to turn it back on and nothing??


all i know is that its a 35 hp champion recip. 2 cyl 4 stroke.

all i did was shut it down for an oil change and released the moisture. upon completion i turned the breaker back on and nothing. the breaker is the way i always shut it down. and every morning it fires right up. why is this any different?

Walter, check your manual about oil level sensors for your compressor. They may shut down if the oil level is too low, and, if you have changed the oil, perhaps the sensor either isn't reading it, or the sensor may be toast.

Does your compressor have an oil level sensor?

Cheers,

Bill

check valve disk
by: Doug

I needed check valve disk's for a 1936 Champion model N . Nobody has them .

Here's how to make them.

Find some disk's larger diameter than needed ( no problem).

Cut graphite for correct size and cut with a EDM machine. You can hold tolerance of .0005 and it does not effect hardness of disk.
