    should be a push button somewhere on the back of motor-they usually have them in yellow or red- sometimes covered by the shroud but try the following first



    did you also try in another outlet- or try another tool in that outlet? next wove the arm that turns the unit from auto to off back and forth- unit must be plugged in for this. Check on ya later

    have you made any progress?

  • 42windowman Oct 26, 2008

    when dows this buzz happen? Does the unit just try to start and just makes that sound?Does motor start at all or does it just make that sound and kick out again?

  • 42windowman Oct 30, 2008

    ok - this indicates that for whatever reason the piston is jammed in the cylinder (lack of oil)- remove housing Plastic shroud and expose joint between motor and compressor unit - you must see if motor rotates- then check to see if you can rotate compressor . If no to either - repair the one that will not turn. A pair of vice grips on shaft should turn either- the should spin freely once unjammed. Please use full sentences when you are telling me issues or I cannot effectively help you.Remember I am helping you for free sohelp me out, thanks

I just repaired my compressor which buzzed when turned on, Problem ended up being the capacitor vibrating off the mounting bolt. Check your connections and good luck!

How can i fix my ec12 hitachi electric air compressor


This problem is caused by either the starter capacitor or the in-tank check valve. Ez to check. With no air in tank, start compressor; if motor hums or has difficulty suspect capacitor. If motor starts, partially fill tank and unplug the power. Check for air leaking at the pressure switch or air coming out of the air inlet (remove the air filter). If air leaking, replace check valve. If no air leaking, again let out all the from the tank and connect power. Allow the compressor to fill and shut-off. After the compressor fills, again listen for air leaking from the pressure switch unloader valve. If air continues to leak from unloader, replace the check valve. Good luck

MY COMPESSOR GAGE SHOWS 135 PSI AND 135 ON THE OUT PUT GAGE BUT I CAN,T INFLATE MY MOTORHOME TIRES TO THE REQUIRED 110#.DO I NEED A LARGER COMPRESSOR?I CAN,T FIND ANY LEAKS.


It is possible that the compressor psi as it is running drops below the tire psi creating a standoff. You must maintain air compressor psi over 110 to fill a tire to 110psi. Add air to your tire but stop when the compressor motor starts to run. When the motor stops then continue to add air until the compressor motor starts and again stop airing up the tire. Repeat as needed.

Air compressor struggles to start but eventually starts


If the proplem only happens after the initial start-up with the tank empty, then your back flow valve is sticking and preventing the compressor from kicking over imediately. If it does it all the time, even when the tanik is empty, then your capacitor on the motor is not charging correctly.

Starting and stopping of air compressor ( no leaks)


This can depend on many variables . (1) How big the air tank of the compressor is, (2) how many PSI the compressor is set to hold, and (3) how many PSI your air gun uses per shot. If you gun is rated at a very high PSI and your compressor has a small tank and low PSI, you may want to consider investing in a larger tank.

Campbell Hausfeld Air Compressor won't start


The compressor starting problem is common to most of the small portable compressors. Poor design and undersized components are to blame. If you have one of these units i suggest looking into a product called the Smart Start by Conrader Valves. It is interchangeable with the standard air filters and allows the compressor to start without fail. check it out- www.conrader.com.

Start up problem


The problem that you describe is caused by the in-tank check valve and/ or the unloader at the pressure switch. When the compressor cycles off the pressure switch releases the air that remains in the air line thru a small valve. There is a 1/4 " plastic tube extending from the check valve to the switch. Listen for the release of air as soon as the compressor stops. There is a small metal tab that pushes on the unloader valve that may need to be adjusted. The motor does not have enough power to start pumping if there is air/backpressure in the air line. If these parts are working correctly then check the value of the start capacitor and use meter to measure. The cap should test within 95 % of stated value. Parts are available at www.chpower.com. Enjoy
