Servicing a screw compressor ??
« on: May 18, 2018, 11:57:04 AM »
How do I or should I even do a DIY service on such a compressor:

Anyone have some recommendations ?

Not worth servicing, chuck it out, I'll help you and take it off your hands to save you the trouble   :lol:


Are you aware that manuals with maintenance details are downloadable from Duncan Rogers ?

As stated, oil, intake filter.
Ours has an oil filter too and little water separator which we drain and we always strip and clean the unloading valve as it isn't a solenoid and is triggered by air bleeding through tiny holes.

Thx for the links !

I think there is a way too long distance between us  :scratch:

I'll read the manual and see if I'm better off afterwards.
