air compressor oil explosion
I bought this #835278 s/n 4072512328 air compressor in 08/2006, and I never used until 06/26/2011. It was running and it blew off the oil cap making a mess everywhere. I used it for about one hour and when I was just about to turn it off (it was on auto mode), it blew off the cap. Before that I was blowing the brake llines on my car. The question is "Why?" and "Is it safe to keep using it?". The black knob on the aluminum motor in what position should it be? The oil level is in the middle of the red dot. Thank you.
