you lube it by putting oil in the intake, i use normal oil, but i dont know if thats the right thing to do. look up POLAND_SPUD's topic on fridge compressors, you will find a lot of useful information there :)

@ilovetoblowthingsup I use engine oil - but you can use oil for compressors and most likely it would work better...

Use the largest syringe you can get and add oil to the air intake while the compressor is running

I add about 7 cubic centimeters every month - but it depends how often you use it -> yeah I know that didn't help you much

remember it's better to add less than more my advice for you is to add 2-3 ccm of oil every month


ps. post some pics of your fridge compressor

well I'd stick to engine oil or compressor oil

keep in mind that your compressor already has some oil inside - it 'd take some time before it runs out. So there is no need to add oil now - do it after 1 or 2 months of usage

I know that I've already asked for pics but plizz post them when you finish - I am interested to see new designs
