Enough folks have asked general questions about Fini air compressors to merit this brand of compressor to have it’s own forum page here on about-air-compressors.com.
First, a little bit about the brand. They’ve been around since 1952, are headquartered in Italy and these folks are not a small company.
Along with a full line of air treatment equipment anda broad range of air tools, they manufacture rotary screw, scroll compressors and reciprocating (piston) air compressors. In those lines are Silenced compressors, “Special” compressors, Coaxial compressors, Belt-driven compressors, Direct drive compressors and High-pressure compressors (14 bar – 200+ PSI) and claim to have sold 10 million compressors in 120 countries worldwide. Like I said, they are not a small company, one reportedly with manufacturing in five countries.
What’s a scroll compressor, you may ask? Here it is, in their own words “Two spirals without any metal-to-metal contact in between, intake air and compress it in 3 successive phases to deliver it at 8 or 10 bar of pressure. The simple process allows a smooth contact-free operation of the scrolls and thus provides a very long service life to all the components and therefore of the complete unit”. This also allows for a totally oil free air production, critical for any application requiring such.
One of the things I find interesting about Fini air compressors, whether you have or are looking at an industrial compressor, or a small, 3HP for D.I.Y. home workshop use, is their claim that ALL of their compressors are made in Italy. True? Don’t know how when they also claim to have manufacturing in five countries.
I find it hard to believe that they can build a very good quality air compressor in Italy, ship it to distributors such as Home Depot and Lowes among a number of others and be competitive.
But then, Fini air compressors aren’t the “cheapest-seats” when it comes to compressors either, so maybe it’s true that all their compressors are made in Europe and they don’t actually buy cheap crud from offshore to sell with their brand label on it. Do you know otherwise? If so, add a comment below, please.
Their website, shown below, provides a list of outlets around the world. That’s the logical first place to go when you have a problem with one of their air compressors.

It is a Fini-Biscout MK200-1.5M dual tank compressor runs on 120V which I purchased

Hey all! I have been perusing this website for the past few months trying to find out info on an old compressor that I purchased, to no avail. The information and resources provided here are absolutely fantastic, though! I finally did a tear-down on the compressor pump last night (it is leaking a copious amount of oil particularly from the “air cooling line”? that runs behind the fan/flywheel), and discovered that it is a Fini pump. I don’t believe it is the original pump for my compressor (1983 60 gallon tank made in Ontario, with a 5 hp Baldor motor),… Read more »
Fini still makes pumps similar to that one. Have you tried to ontact them? Maybe with a few pix of the pump from various sides and angles?
With further research over the last couple nights, I found that that newer style pump (I think it is called the bk119) actually has the same piston diameter for both stages. I’m going to shoot them an email here right away and find out. I’ll give an update in case anyone else runs into this in the future!
Interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a two stage like that. I guess the secondary must have a shorter stroke. Maybe you could get a shot or two of this thing’s guts for us?
Sorry, Doug, I worded that badly. What I meant to say is that the newer style pump has the same diameter pistons as my older one. The first stage being 105mm, the second 52mm.
Ha. THAT’s a relief!
Just a test. I see pix again, am going to try an attachment and post.
Well, if the atachment attached, I can’t tell. Now to post.
Hi everyone, ive got a fini cube 10 270f, os anyone no the code for a easytronic 2 controller?
What cool little machine! I didn’t know they made these.
Anyway, have you tried getting into here:
Looks like what you need can be found there…and I’ll mention that some other brands just automatically reset, so maybe you don’t really need a code.
Good luck, tell us how you do, please.
Hi guys. would you please let me know where I can find the re-set switch on the Fini Biscout MK200? My compressor quit while was I using it plugged into an extension cord. I cannot find a way to re-start it and was told that I would have to replace the pressure switch. Do you have any advice? Thanks.
I wonder who said the pressure switch was the problem.
Anyway, I’m having difficulty finding decent pix of that model.
However, I suspect it will be a smallish (think pencil eraser) button near the shroud, but on metal. Looks like probably on the lower part behind the pump, right side as seen from the pump end oil fill cap.
If you don’t find it, please send a few pix and maybe we can find it together, if no one else knows.
I have a 2013 Fini Tai Shan 4.3 gallon electric air compressor (2 tanks). It worked well a few weeks ago. Now it does nothing when I flip the on switch. I took the cover off the Lefoo LF10-4H pressure control mechanism and can see the contact engage and disengage with the on-off switch. No other “clicking” or noises when plugging in. I have a voltmeter although I do not know the on and off voltage pattern for the 4 main power connections. Any advice is appreciated.
Could be a bad power cord. You did verify there’s juice at the outlet, right?
You can start by checking the voltage across the two terminals that attach to the power cord. Either 120 or 230 or so VAC depending on where you are.
Then move the switch to on or auto. you should see the same voltage across the other two terminals. If you don’t the switch is bad.
Problem solved. Found the motor reset switch :-/
Cool. Thanks for letting us know.
