The tank shouldnt pressurize
Not certain what you mean by air bleed valve, but there should not be fuel leaks

Hi Anonymous, I would definately do a leak down test, it will let you know if you have a ring or piston problem, air noise coming out of the crankcase breather, valve seat problem, air noise coming out of the intake or exhaust ports. What it will not diagnoise is a failed valve seal usually from improper installation or rotating engine before lifters bleed down. When a valve seal comes off the guide it turns from an umbrella into a pump. You should have noticed slight smoking out of the front cylinder exhaust pipe. Good luck

Compressor runs fills tank but then it wont keep the pressure, won't restart to keep pressure above requested pressure. I have to let it seat for 1/2 hour to restart again


Most likely problem is the tank fill check valve. The most common way a a tank will loose pressure is by leak-back at the check valve. This also makes it hard to start because it leaves the tank pressure on the pump head instead of letting it bleed off. The motor will only restart after the tank pressure is bleed off to a low level, reducing the back pressure the motor will have to overcome. Leaking can be heard at the pressure switch, where the air is normally bleeds off over 10 seconds or so after the motor turns off. A defective check valve will continuously leak down at the pressure switch unloader valve instead of bleeding out in just 10 seconds. The check valve is an assembly that is largely hidden inside the tank. It just looks like a large hex nut where the filler tube from the pump enters the tank. Removal usually means first removing a smaller hex/barb/connector where the smaller relief line ties into the big nut. Inspection of the check valve will easily reveal whether this is the problem.

The air is coming out of the pressure switch but the problem is the tank check valve. The tank check valve is on the tank where the large line from the pump feeds into the tank. There is also a smaller line, either plastic or copper, from the check valve to the pressure switch. When the pump shuts off the check valve is supposed to close and the pressure switch opens a valve that lets the head pressure bleed off through the small line. This lets the motor start the next time without any pressure in the head. If the check valve isn't closing properly the air will leak out as you describe.

T30 model 2475N7.5 Ingersoll Rand will not bleed off head pressure when up to 145psi shuts down but will not start when at 95psi takes out breaker 50amp


If air continously comes from the bottom of the pressure switch (bleeder valve) you have a bad tank check valve. The check valve is located on the receiver tank where the copper line from the compressor head goes to the tank. The brass hex between the copper line and the receiver tank is the check valve. Remove it after making sure all pressure has been bleed off the tank. Then you can inspect it. I recommend replacing it unless there is something obviously stuck in it that can be removed with no damage to the check valve. Another way to see if it is the check vale is to loosen the nut on the copper line at the HP head that goes to the receiver tank. If air continously blows from the copper line the check valve is leaking.

It sounds to me like the check valve is leaking. This valve is located at the tank where the line goes in from the pump - it is supposed to keep the air from flowing from the tank back to the pump. If it leaks, it will hiss out of the unloader but make create enough back pressure to keep the pump under enough load to overload the motor upon start-up. Sometimes you can remove this valve and simply clean it. Just make sure you bleed the tank down completely before servicing. I hope this helps.

I have worked on many makita compressors and have run-across this problem on a few of them. Your compressor has a check valve that is supposed to hold tank pressure after the switch reaches set pressure. There is an unloader valve built into the pressure switch that releases the pressure in the discharge hose after the unit shuts off. The unloader allows the compressor to restart with-out any pressure in the discharge line. If the brass check valve is leaking pressure back into the system, air will leak out of the unloader valve. Follow the discharge line to the tank and you will see the brass check valve. To test valve for fault, run the compressor till it builds around 80 psi and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Remove the 1/4" hose connector from the check valve and check for air leaking out of the valve. If it is leaking you can order form www.toolpartsdirect.com. or call the makita 1-800 number. The price is about the same. Good Luck on your repair.
