When you depend on an air compressor in your shop or business, keeping it running to provide the air needed is vital. Often, finding a compressor parts dealer that sells the correct parts for your system is the best place to start when one of the machines goes down.
Air compressors are used in many industries, and if you depend on one, finding the right replacement parts can be critical. A compressor parts dealer may have the parts you need, but not all dealers handle all compressor brands, so finding one that sells, services, and carries parts for your brand and model is essential.
Getting the parts you need may not be possible in the local market, so you may need to find resources online or find a more prominent dealer to order specific parts and have them shipped to you. In some cases, you can call the manufacturer directly for parts or help in locating a dealer in your area. The manufacturer is often the best resource for anything to do with their compressors, and most have a customer service number to call for assistance.
Air compressors are often not overly complex, but if you are not comfortable taking yours apart and installing replacement parts, you may want to talk with the compressor parts dealer to see if they offer service and repair as well. If not, you may need to find an independent repair service that can come and install the parts after you receive them from the dealer.
The independent repair service may be a compressor parts dealer, but services like this often work with multiple brands, so you will need to discuss the parts' availability with them. If the repair service can get the parts or has them in stock, it could save some time, and the cost of the parts might be lower than buying them from the manufacturer yourself.
The compressor repair service may also get replacement parts made by third-party vendors. It is essential to look the parts over carefully if you are going to use them because there is always the potential that they don't fit precisely in your compressor.
If your compressor is still under warranty, you may void it by using any parts not approved by the manufacturer, so be sure to check with the manufacturer first. A compressor service tech may also be able to tell you if there is a specific requirement for the brand or model compressor you are using.
