My air blower has stopped, what is the problem?

What’s the Problem?

Firstly there can be many reasons for your air blower to stop working. But in general, it’s either an electrical or mechanical fault, or sometimes both! With close assessment of the air blower it’s usually possible to identify the likely route cause of failure.


Firstly get the nameplate details off your blower and give us a call. Some photos of your installation/process are also useful to see – you can email or whatsapp to us. We’ll discuss your application and exactly what has happened in the lead up to the blower stopping. From this conversation we would normally be able to identify what is the likely cause for the air blower to suddenly stop. It could be an electrical fault, or a mechanical problem.

We may ask you some questions, such as:

  • Is there an inlet filter fitted and is it clean?

  • Is there a safety relief valve fitted and correctly set?

  • Is your air blower free to turn by hand?

Your answers to these questions will steer us with the advice we give. We then have several options. We can supply you with spare parts to repair the air blower yourself. We have a range of loan/rental/hire blowers in stock which we could send to you same day if required to get your process back online. That is always the number one priority – to get you back up and running asap. You can then repair the blower or send it to us for overhaul at our workshop. If you prefer we can always come to you to resolve the problem.
