Hello everyone, I am having problems with my Pneumofore screw compressor. I bought it used and now I can't get it to work. I have tested the motor and everything is ok with it but when I connect it to the compressor it takes over 130 A per phase. It seems there is something blocking it from turning freely but I can turn the shaft with my hand, there is no unusal noise or any thing else. I have no air in the system, nothing happens. I thought maybe something is wrong with the slide valve but it seems normal. The compressor was not used for 6 months. There is a hose coming from a barrel. Maybe I should try pressurising the system so the slide valve opens? I have tried to turn it on without is and it spat out oil, it means there is some pressure. Help me guys! thank you
