First check the pump head to see if there is a plug in the air intake. This would need to be removed if you haven't already. Second thing to do is to hit the reset button on the motor. Third if you have it connected to an extension cord, remove it and plug directly into the wall.

This model is considerably less noisy than my old single piston compressor. That said, it does still make noise that would be noticeable in a confined space.

Dropping the PSI does not make a big difference in the CFM. At 45 PSI you would be at approximately 5.5 to 5.6 CFM.

Question

can this unit be rewired to run on 230 volts?

I purchased this unit from you last year and would like to now run it on 230 volts rather than 115. Can this unit be rewired to operate on 230 volts?

answer 2
No it can not. The motor was not designed to run both. Units that are designed to run both are actualy 230 volts motors that are not heavy so 115 will turn it. If you run it off a 230 you will burn it out because the wiring inside the motor is not designed to handle than much power.

The Garage Mate requires 1 pint (1/2 liter) of oil for the first oil change. The top of the red sight circle is a another way to make sure enough oil is being added.

Theoretically, one bottle of the all weather air compressor oil will do it, but I have found that sometimes you need 1 or 2 oz extra. So I suggest you get two bottles.

You can hook up an expansion tank to this compressor. The auxiliary tank would have to be piped in with a hose or hard piping. Removal of the service connection may be required.

answer 2
Adding an expansion tank would be as easy as any other unit. You would come off the output fitting of this compressor with a line to your secondary tank. Then all of your tools would come off of the secondary tank. Presumably, you would put an additional regulator with water drain after your secondary tank.
