For the many of us that have purchased an entry level air compressor from a big box store or online, when the air compressor is broken, we soon come to realize that, depending on the brand, there is very little information available to help you resolve broken compressor issues.
Note that we wrote “when the air compressor is broken”. It is often the case that the relatively inferior products used in building low cost air compressors deliver the kind of life the you might expect; short!
Often, too, folks buy a low cost compressor for air-using applications that would be best served by a much better (and yes, higher priced) compressor, but either don’t understand that there is a huge difference in reliability between one or the other, or just want to spend as little as possible on their compressor, and hope for the best. If you fall into the latter category, we sure hope you aren’t using your compressor to make a living!
Regardless, this page is here to help you fill the gap between when an air compressor is broken and the absence of advice, parts or service from the clerks at the various big box stores or online vendors where you may have purchased your compressor.
The category headings are there to try to help you find the pages of information you need.
