Why do air compressors breakdown?

Like all forms of technology, there are many reseasons that an air compressor may fail to operate, or can completely breakdown. Here at Glaston, we have the knowledge and expertise to respond to these air compressor breakdowns in a timely and efficient manner. Our team of experts can pinpoint the exact cause of your air compressor failure, and work to repair this to get you back up and running as quickly as possible. The most common reasons air compressors breakdown are:

  • Air compressor leaks – If you shut down the compressor when not in use, but you find that the pressure gauge is dropping, the air compressor is likely leaking air.
  • Excessive noise – If your air compressor starts to suddenly make loud noises that are out of character for it, it is likely due to an issue that needs to be addressed such as problem pistons and loose parts.
  • Oil levels depleting – A compressor needs oil to run but if your compressor oil levels constantly need topping up, you may find that you have a mechanical problem that needs to be addressed.
  • Constant vibrations – Vibrations on any type of machinery can be troublesome. With air compressors, vibration can be due to a number of areas becoming loose such as mountain bolts, the crankshaft, belts or other components.

If you spot any of these issues developing on your air compressor you should respond quickly in order to prevent a complete air compressor breakdown that may prove costly. Here at Glaston, we are able to respond to these issues and so many more. Visit our air compressor breakdown page to find out more.
