Recommended Posts

Hi folk's. now don't laugh this is my trusty compressor.the plug wire broke so I nipped out and bought one

at argos as shown.

now the old plug was set at 12v so this one was set at 12 also,normally both large buttons light up red and also

the three yellow lights depending on which setting three being the most powerful,wiith this plug the red lights light up but no yellow and it doesnt run at all.If I turn it down to 6v the red lights are off,three yellow work but the output is as powerful as a 

small asmatic ant anyone know whats going on?

I’m gonna guess not enough power capacity. You need to check both the output voltage (eg 12V) and the output power (measured in Watts, W) and make sure your chosen transformer block delivers enough juice to run the compressor. The voltage is fixed; the power draw depends on the device... so it’s OK to have more power CAPACITY (eg 50W or 30W is OK as long as it’s bigger than the required draw). As it happens, owing to a failure to read eBay listings properly, I have a handy mains —> 12V 30W transformer block spare, so if 30W is enough, I can send you it... PM me...

best,

M.

Sounds like an explanation M I'll check it and PM you.
