Durabuilt Air Compressor oil blowout!l

I was using my Durabuilt Air Compressor (6 gal DP0200604) and while I wasnt looking it started blowing oil everywhere. Upon closer inspection I noticed what looks like a rubber priming bulb ahd ''blown off'' can I just replace this or is there a potentially worse problem? Know where I can get parts for this? The compressor was still working, I just turned it off.

Same issue I had - this is the sight glass rubber cover that bulged and blew out - I was able to shut might off before it seized up...

take a wrench, and loosen and pull out the plug... then at any plumbers supply, you can get a brass 1/2 threaded end cap/plug - use teflon tape, and she will fit nice and snug, then fill it with the right amount of oil, and you're all set.... yes, you will loose your site glass, but this is a $5 repair for a $70 unit... new site glass is like $20... didn't seem worth it to me...

Cheers

It is difficult to trouble shoot this kind of issue. Even brand new compressors will blow some oil out if the cap is removed. So you should ask yourself if you've notice any issues with the efficiency of the compressor? More specifically an increase in the time it takes to reach max psi. Also is this a older compressor?

As the cylinder wall and rings wear more and more pressurized gas will be forced by the rings. However, this is a gradual process.
If you have not noticed an increase in the time it takes the pump to reach max psi then what you experienced is probably just the normal blow-by that all compressors have.
As for a replacement oil cap.
As long as the cap fits tightly and has a breather any oil cap will work. Measure your opening then try checking out places like Sears and Home Depot. Since several air compressor manufacturers use the same motor\pump. You should be able to find one that will meet your requirements. Though you may have to order it.
Good Luck!

Where do I buy a Piston connecting rod for Durabuilt compressor 6 Gal mo# DPO200604 con/rod/116mm length


only place will be from the compressor manufacturer
durabuilt will be the assembled unit but the compressor is made by some one else
you will have to identify the maker of the compressor to have any chance of getting a rod
makers leave a casting sign on the crankcase of the compressor or even a brand name
you could try a retailer for the compressor and find a service center for repairs and get the rod from that angle
breaking rods or needing rods for compressors is very unusual and one possible cause of a rod problem is excessive pressure being generated ( 150 psi or more )

Craftsman Air Comp. 6 hp oil-less, 33 gal horz. tank - sounds really loud


Some of the craftsmen compressors have pistons that are coated on the top of the dome. Once the coating wears off, they have severe loud piston slap. If you continue to run it the way it is, it will snap the connecting rod in half or break the piston and possibly the cylinder.

What type of oil is needed in my Durabuilt air compressor-6 gallon tank? I need to replace some oil. Thanx. Send response to "gfrommell@wi.rr.com." Thanx.


Howdy. It's actually called Compressor Oil and is available at nearly all hardware stores and tool rental agencies. There are several brands and they are all comparable. I use Senco, but Campbell Hausfield is also good. Farmerbear at FixYa.com
