Quincy Air Compressor Repairs and Diagnosis
May 31, 2016

When it comes to durability, nothing beats a quality Quincy air compressor. Their lifespan can be 100,000 hours or greater, at which point the likelihood of issues and breakdowns starts to occur. This can be reliably close to 15 years depending on heavy the use is on the compressor. Compared to consumer air compressors that are used for paint sprayers and nail guns, a Quincy air compressor is built to last many years without having to worry about repair costs and fees.

With time, like most things, repairs will become a necessary component to keeping your machine running at its full potential. In order to avoid serious Quincy air compressor repairs, regular check-ups on the machine are advised. Checking for some of the most common issues is an easy way to avoid in expensive repairs. Oil leaks, electrical malfunctions, air leaks, and gasket issues are among the most common issues that easily fixed if detected early.  

Electrical Malfunctions

First let us tackle the electrical malfunctions that are common issues in Quincy air compressor repair. If the machine refuses to turn on, it is important to check that it has been plugged in correctly and that all the wirings are connected properly and are not loose. The next step is to use the reset button that is typically found at the front of the machine. Other companies will typically have red or black reset buttons, but Quincy manufactures machines with blue reset buttons. If that does not help and the air compressor remains off, then try plugging in other appliances into the outlet to check that it is not a blown fuse, or an issue with the outlet itself. Once all these issues have been ruled out, it is advised that an appointment be made to repair your Quincy air compressor, as there might be internal issues concerning its electrical system.

Air Leaks

Air leaks are pretty common in air compressors because the tank welds weaken over time as the machine is used. If any leak is detected it is important to replace the tank as soon as possible. Welding the seams that is causing the leak is not a feasible option as it can be dangerous and might result in a rupture once the tank is used in another operation.

Oil Leaks and Gaskets

If you see visible fire or smoke while the air compressor is in operation, it is important to disconnect it from the power source immediately. Wait until the engine has cooled down before checking the oil. The oil must be clean and the right type of oil needs to be in the machine. Check also for the level of the oil to see if it needs to be topped up or changed. Always check that the gaskets are in place and tightly connected. If you see any leaks then tighten the gaskets or replace them accordingly.
