ARB Compressor Problem : Need HELP

Hey Guys

Was out on the rugged trail today....Had to reinflate my 36" tyre using the compressor twice (my tyre came off twice, BEADLOCKS are next as it was a pain in the neck ....)

After reinflating for the second time my ARB would not function anymore. You would not hear its usual sound so it was no longer compressing.

Could it a be the compressor fuse or the compressor solenoid....
Appreciate your help.
Thanks
Jay

No matter what ARB says, that is a small compressor for that big tire. Might have killed it...

There may be a rebuild kit for them... the membrane could have torn.



I would suggest with a 36" tire, getting a powertank or another type of CO2 system. They are fast and reliable, plus you can use air tools/impact wrenches with them.

ARB worked this morning... compressed air and operated the lockers

But there is a leak at the compressor....could it a membrane
Any one opened an ARB compressor before any chance to rebuild it

Thanks
Jay

I think there is a heat activated safety in them. When they get too hot they turn off. They are a low duty compressor - as stated, not suited to pumping up lots of big tires. YMMV

Totally agree.
But any input on the leak occuring at the compressor between the compressor tank and the black cap
