Hello,

Last year I bought a used Touch&Press inclusive vacum pump. Recently I had some issus with the vacum level not reached. I suspect that the pump has never been serviced and would like to change the oil, but I can't find any information on what specification the oil has.....
Does anyone know what kind of oil I need to buy when I want to change it?
Cheers😊

I don’t think it would be good to use an oil vacuum pump with press ovens. If something went bad oil could get sucked into the muffle?
Are you sure it’s not oil-less ? And maybe you just need to clean the muffler.

Do you have another oven with a pump you could try on the T&Press

Try when the oven is cool to clean the seal. 409 and a paper towel works. Wet the paper towel and wipe the gasket and the metal it seals up with.
or it could be a vacuum valve issue.

Good luck getting help from them. I’ve heard not much support these days. Could always try one of our sponsors here….Garland. Great service, parts, help.
