Oil plug broken
by: Bill

This should be a new thread, however, regardless of where any oil leak is, it's necessary to identify where the compressor oil is coming from.

That means cleaning the compressor pump and motor carefully, and monitor it while it's running to see.

When you have done that, please start a new thread in the Husky forum about the oil leak in a Husky L210VWD and we'll see if we can get help for you.

What's the model of compressor, please. Is it really a Husky?

Can you please take a photo of the broken plug and upload it so we all can see the issue?

When you say the red oil fill plug is broken, is it the plug on top or under the oil sump?

If you have any remnants of the plug, if you take them to an industrial plumbing distributor, they should be able to match it with one they have in stock.
