Smoking fridge compressor

Unread postAuthor: arboles1237 » Thu Oct 27, 2016 7:43 pm

Okay so I'm in the process of building a piston valve paintball gun with a homemade regulator, and I need to be able to fill my sodastream bottle to ~600 psi. For this I bought a fridge compressor and attached a hard start module. I have two questions. 1: Why does my fridge compressor belch smoke out of the air outlet and what can I do to fix this? 2: I drained the oil out of the compressor somehow and need to fill it up with standard non-hygroscopic compressor oil. Can I do this without cutting the compressor open?

to be honest I don't know the answers on your questions but I really want to see that gun, when you finished it, so I hope that moment will come soon :D

Point 2 answers question 1! Compressors need oil, otherwise they tend to smoke!

How much oil, who knows bar the manufacturer. I'd get another compressor

If you drained it without cutting it open, surely you can refill it?
