    sporlan oil level control

    sporlan valve OL-60XL; I got oil flowing up to inlet screen of control but not oil is filling crankcase. I check inlet screen but it not plug up . oil pressure in supply line to control is 40 psi. crankcase pressure is less than that so i believe this oil level control might be clog.
    is this control serviceable or do i have to replace it?

    Page 6 on this Sporlan bulletin tells how to adjust the control. *Note: I only found this by searching, because I was very curious; I have never actually adjusted one. Good luck.

    IV replaced plenty of them, make sure to never go 10 turns from the top or the ball could fall off...

    Thanks for the Info. I found a Baker Dis.shop in Doral FL., A manager by the name of Tony Peres. He had one so I arranged to have him fedex the oil level control to us, this is for the 10 hp compressor Copeland. Thanks Tony!! This forum makes me happy because I can talk to other people who are doing the same thing and there always somebody there. This is my face book. Thanks all the people at HVAC TALK.
