Supercharger Repairs


If you have a problem with your Rotrex supercharger then contact the distributor or kit dealer for advice. Always contact the company from whom you bought the supercharger. Do not contact Rotrex directly as only the company you bought the supercharger from will be able to help.

We do not recommend attempting to repair the Rotrex supercharger. We are aware of some companies offering repairs, however none of these are Rotrex approved. At Rotrex we never repair superchargers or reuse components.

Please also note that Rotrex does not offer any warranty on superchargers that have been repaired or disassembled.

When used within specifications the Rotrex supercharger does not wear due to the traction design that has no metal to metal contact. The life span of a Rotrex supercharger is hundreds of thousands kilometres, assuming operating conditions are within specifications and recommended oil change frequencies are followed. On some applications other than cars the Rotrex supercharger has run continuously for more than 5.000 hours.

Should something go wrong the supercharger will most likely be destroyed due to the extreme speeds of the rolling elements. The most common failure causes are overheating and contamination of the oil or air flow as well as the supercharger being disassembled. Hence repair is not recommended. Even if a repair seems successful at first the supercharger will likely break down later due to the very tight tolerances of the components.

For more information on how to use the Rotrex supercharger follow the information provided by the distributor or kit dealer or follow the advice in our standard setup and maintenance leaflet. If you have any questions please contact the distributor or kit dealer from whom you bought the Rotrex supercharger.
