Viair 280C submerged

my 280c was submerged by accident is it worth fixing or chunk it and buy a new one?

dry it out slowly, it should be ok???

If its been wet internally, it may be a good idea to blow it apart and dry & clean the insides of the unit. Never start a compressor that is wet internally. As long as nothing has shorted out, it should be okay.

Ok, something has shorted out. :frowning: I dried it and its a nogo.

First, test the commutator for continuity. If the motor is burned out, its a doorstop. If not, you may be able to replace the complete carbon brush assembly and make it functional again.
