We have a Speedaire 5Z398B. It has been in use but out of sight for several years. I don't have a manual on it and I want to know what kind of maintenance I should be performing on it.

Out of sight for several years means no oil change? Change the oil.

Clean off all surface areas where does has gathered to aid in cooling.

Has anyone drained the tank all the time it's been out of sight? Make sure that the tank is drained regularly.
