4. Confirm the power receptacle
If the power receptacle only loosely accepts the plug,
the receptacle must be repaired. Contact the nearest
electric store for repair service.
If such a faulty receptacle is used, may cause
overheating, resulting in a serious hazard.
5. Dipstick insertion and oil level check
(If your compressor is EC10SB(SL) this step is not
Use a screwdriver or similar tool to remove the plastic
cap on the lower part of the cylinder (Fig. 3).
Insert the accessory dipstick all the way to the bottom.
Remove the dipstick and make sure the oil level is
within the range of the dipstick notches (Fig. 4).
Drain tank to release air pressure
before removing the dipstick.
Make sure air vent in dipstick is free
from debris. If air vent is blocked
pressure can build in crankcase
causing damage to compressor and
possible personal injury.
When the oil volume is insufficient, refer to the section
"Oil change-oil topping off" on page 10 for a descrip-
tion of how to supply the oil.
6. Right running position
Position the compressor on a flat surface , in a well
ventilated area away from atmospheric agents and
not in explosive areas.
Push the knob of the pressure switch to "OFF" and
disconnect it from the power source before move the
compressor. Transport the compressor in the correct
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. 2).
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 inside-the wrap, which stops the
compressor when the temperature is too high. Should
this be tripped, the compressor will restart
automatically after 15-20 minutes.
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
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. 5).
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
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.
