Daily Air Compressor Maintenance Checklist:

1. Oil Check and Change (if applicable):
If your portable air compressor requires oil, check the oil level before each use. Change the oil as per the manufacturer's recommendations.
2. Air Filter Inspection and Cleaning:
Clean or replace the air filter regularly (typically every 3 months or as specified by the manufacturer) to prevent dust and debris from entering the compressor.
3. Inspect Hoses and Connections:
Check hoses and connections for the air compressor for any leaks, cracks, or signs of wear. Replace damaged parts promptly to avoid air leaks and inefficiency.
4. Drain Moisture from Tank:
Release moisture from the air compressor air tank after each use to prevent rust and corrosion. This can usually be done using a drain valve at the bottom of the tank.
5. Check Safety Valve Functionality:
Ensure the safety valve in the air compressor is working correctly by testing it periodically. It should release pressure if it exceeds the maximum limit.
6. Inspect Pressure Gauges:
Check the air compressor pressure gauges for accuracy. If they are not accurate, they may need calibration or replacement.
7. Inspect Belts and Pulleys (if applicable):
If your air compressor has belts and pulleys, check them for wear and proper tension. Adjust or replace them if necessary.
8. Store Properly:
When not in use, store the air compressor in a clean, dry place. Protect the air compressor from extreme temperatures and humidity.
9. Follow Manufacturer's Maintenance Schedule:
Refer to your air compressor's user manual for a detailed maintenance schedule and follow it diligently.
10. Safety Precautions:
Always follow safety precautions outlined in the user manual when performing maintenance tasks for the air compressor. Disconnect the air compressor from power sources before servicing.
