Have you tried turning the pomp on, or is it still wet? You probably want it to dry, then try turning it on to see if it still works. Since you're asking, I'm guessing you haven't tested whether the pomp still works?

The first thing you need to do before turning it on is to change the oil. These types of pumps cause the input to come in contact with the oil, so the oil is likely quite wet. Avoid running the pump with wet oil. The water can cause corrosion to various parts of the vacuum pump over extended periods of time and thus cause it to malfunction. After changing the oil, I would run the pump for a while then change the oil again to remove any water remaining in the pump.

Definitely change the oil before putting this pomp in such a circumstance.

You guys are making me doubt my sanity here. Pomp was a typo... wasn't it? I know we aren't talking about "ceremony and splendid display, especially at a public event."

I opened the gasket and discard the wet oil then I dried all parts inside the gasket and now for better result I put them in a safe place so they can dry completely , tomorrow I will put them back inside the gasket and then I will use new oil for it . Do U think I am doing right ?

I'll do , But I fear maybe the few seconds it worked with wet oil it may be damaged its internal parts , I opened it completely and I think there was no sign of damage .
