OPERATION

1. Start-up
Insert the plug into the receptacle and start the compressor by
pulling the knob of the pressure switch to "ON" (Refer to Fig. 4).
WARNING:
Do not stop or start the compressor by
use of the plug. Always use "ON/OFF"
knob located on the pressure switch.
The operation of the compressor is automatic and is controlled
by the pressure switch which stops it when the pressure in the
air-tank reaches the maximum level and restart it when the air
pressure drops during use to the restart level.
The motor of the compressor is fitted with a thermal protection
with manual reset (push-button), which stops the compressor
when the temperature is too high. Should this be tripped, the
compressor will restart only if reset is done.
CAUTION:

conditions and duration of use, noise from
this product may contribute to hearing
loss.
2. Adjustment of working pressure
Unlock the knob of the pressure reducer pulling it up, adjust the
pressure to the required level by turning the knob clockwise to
increase and counterclockwise to decrease.
A pressure gauge (B) is provided to know when the required
pressure is reached, lock the knob by pushing it down firmly
(Refer to Fig. 9).
When adjusting the pressure, check and make sure that a
pressure gauge for the tank has the pressure level that is higher
than that of the pressure to be adjusted.
It is also imperative that you make adjustment by slowly starting
up the pressure from the level that is lower than the pressure to
be adjusted.
WARNING:
Check
pressure rating for nailers, staplers and
accessories. Compressor outlet pressure
must be regulated so as to never exceed
the maximum pressure rating of the
nailers, staplers and accessories.

4. About the thermal protector
The thermal protector operates to stop the motor when a
problem such as a motor overload, etc.. occurs. If the motor
should stop during operation, proceed as follows.
(1) Push the pressure switch knob to the "OFF" position and
disconnect the plug from the receptacle (Fig. 4).
(2) If the extension cord does not conform to the specifications given
on page 6 replace with an extension cord such as that shown on
page 6. If the capacity of the power supply is insufficient,
increase the power supply capacity to remove the cause of a
flow of excessive current (over-current).
(3) Wait approximately 5 minutes, then press the reset switch of the
thermal protector (Fig. 11).
(4) Start up. If the motor still stops during operation, please contact
the service center.

Risk of bursting. When the tank gets
corroded, there is a risk of breakdown.
Water will condense in the air tank. If not
drained, water will corrode and weaken
the air tank causing a risk of air tank
rupture. Drain tank daily or after 4 hours of
use. The drain contains moisture in the
air, abrasion particles, rust, etc. To drain
