COMPRESSOR HOSE REPAIR
1. Locate the leak or puncture. Determine if the failure point is closer to the male or female fitting. In this example, our failure point is closer to the male fitting so we will be taking apart that end. However, the steps are the same for the female fitting.
2. Cut the line at the failure point, ensure you have a straight cut.
3. Lower the protection sleeve.
4. Cut the line directly at the compression fitting.
5. Loosen the air fitting from the compression fitting using two 16mm tools of your choice. Hold the compression fitting in place while you remove the air fitting.
6. The air fitting has an additional male end that is inserted into the hose. Use a screwdriver to maneuver the excess hose out of place until the fitting budges.
7. Remove the air fitting from the compression nut.
8. Remove the excess hose that may be on the air fitting or in the compression nut. Ensure both parts are clean.
9. Insert the freshly cut air hose into the compression fitting. Give yourself about 1-2” of extra hose.
10. Insert the air fitting into the hose.
11. Raise the compression fitting. Begin threading the air fitting into the compression fitting.
12. Tighten using 16mm tools.
13. Reinsert the hose and fittings into the protection sleeve.
14. Test for leaks. Tighten if needed.
