Guide :Air Tools & Compressors : EC12 Portable Electric 2hp Air Compressor, Oil Lubricated
Overheating? burnt oil smell
After the compressor cycles several times, a burnt oil smell is present. I have changed the oil several times but nothing helps. I use 30 weight synthetic oil matching the specs in the manual. The compressor has ceased to run since then. I have bought another ec12 to replace it.
