Pro Source Air Compressor Spare Parts


I called the 1-800 number on the box. They told me the black cap is the correct cap.

Fired up fine and seems to work well. I guess only time will tell at this point.

I called and it was picked up in about 3 rings. The woman on the line said we had a bad connection, my end was breaking up so I told her I would call right back.

The second call took about 7 - 10 rings before it was picked up. I called at around 4:30PM eastern.

OK thanks for the reply, Good info to know. At least they are responsive on a couple of occasions.I'd buy it again if I am in the market.

I have been happy with the Have Model 1113C, 2HP, 13 Gal.
The coupling joints are less than good, they tend to rust. Had one leaking without hose connected, bought a brass one, then caused my own problem. When tightening it I broke the cast mahifold/regulator. My fault. Got the new part very reasonable in cost. I've been happy with it, I use it for blowing out things such as filter, water hoses for winter storage, have yet to use it with air tools. The 13 gal holds plenty of air for that.

Sorry, one more quick question if you don't mind. This is my first oil compressor. Kind of a dumb question but I'm looking through the manual and parts listing and the only way I can see to empty the oil is by removing the oil glass. Is that how it's done?


I looked again and I don't see a drain plug anywhere, and the oil glass looks to be sealed up pretty good so I don't think that would be removed for it. I'm a bit stumped.

I hadnt ever replaced mine, but it was barely a year old when I lost it. I guess if you want to flush or clean oil just turn it upside down.

Looking at mine, the Oil window is screwed in and is removed to drain the oil.

One other suggestion, condensation should be drained regularly from the tank. There is a drain valve on bottom of tank.

The coupling adapters are junk. The one on mine next to the tank pressure gauge leaks when a hose is connected.

Now I'm wondering if I should try swapping it out for a new brass adapter and risk breaking it, or returning it.

Did yours break by over tightening it? or did it bend funny and crack?

I'm not familiar with this particular compressor, but I used to work on compressors, and still do some work on them-I retired. The plug in the oil filler hole when shipped does not have any "breathing" capabilities. The plug which goes into this hole should have some method of "breathing" the crankcase, to prevent moisture build-up. IF you cannot find the plug which goes into this hole, you can get by with drilling a very small, less than 1/32" hole in the cap for breathing, the smaller the better actually. You may find a small amount of oil loss after this, but it will be minimal compared to helping your compressor. Thanks, David

Thanks for the reply. The black cap on it does have a small hole in it. I haven't checked but I guess it does go through for breathing.

The filler cap, on the top does have a breather hole.
The plug with window to see oil level is removed to drain oil.

Yes the couplings are cheap metal un-plated. When I replaced one that was leaking I over tightened it and cracked the manifold. Haven't replaced the manifold yet, but when I do I will be extremely careful not to over tighten. Plan on replacing both couplings with brass ones. Overall I have been very happy with the unit, like I said before I use it alot for filling tires and balls for the grand kids, blowing out filters on shop vac as well as wife's vaccumm. Saving a bunch of money not having to buy filters on a regular basis. This winter have several jobs to complete that I use nailers, expect to have no problems.
