How to turn on an air compressor
To turn on an air compressor, first make sure that the unit is properly plugged into an outlet and that the switch is in the “on” position. Once the unit is plugged in and turned on, you will need to open the bleed valve to release any air that may be trapped in the unit. After the bleed valve is open, you can then start the compressor by flipping the switch to the “on” position.
Check the oil level
Most air compressors have an oil level indicator on the side of the tank. Check the oil level before each use. If the oil level is low, add oil until it reaches the full line.
Fill the tank
Fill the tank: In order to turn on your air compressor, you must first fill the tank with air. To do this, you will need to attach the air compressor to an air source, such as an air compressor, and turn it on. Once the air compressor is turned on, it will start to fill the tank with air.
Start the compressor
In order to start the compressor, the first thing you need to do is connect the power cord to the power outlet. Once the power cord is connected, you need to turn on the switch that is located on the front of the compressor. After the switch is turned on, the compressor will start automatically.
