Pressure switch may set too high. Reducing tension on the pressure switch spring should reduce pressure for cycling compressor motor off

I've got a compair 660A air compressor and have oil leaking out of the body of the oil pump cover.


I didn't think this was a pressure lubed machine. Is it leaking around the shaft seal, behind the flywheel? If it's just the oil leak, and the unit runs/sounds fine otherwise, you could put a gasket and seal kit in it.

You can search online for parts, but probably have better luck calling it a LeRoi 660A. Compair bought them years ago, and let the piston compressor business slowly die.

My compressor quit working when i flip the on switch it does nothing any ideas what is wrong???


If the tank is full (pressurized): Nothing will happen when the switch is turned on. Bleed some air from the tank to see if the motor turns on when the pressure drops.

If the tank is empty or low on pressure: First check the circuit breaker to the outlet the compressor is plugged into. Next, somewhere on the compressor, usually on the motor, there is a circuit breaker. They are usually a small round white or black button that if tripped will stick out about 1/4 inch or more. Push that back in and check to see if your motor runs. The usual reason for these circuit breakers to pop is because the compressor is being run on an extension cord. Rule of thumb for compressors: run longer air lines, NEVER use extension cords. If it is absolutely necessary to run an extension cord it should be 10-guage and no longer than 25 feet.

Compressor runs until overload release valve opens (pressure at 130 psi) and then air escapes until pressure lowers to 100 psi..Then motor begins to restart, but will not , due to 100 psi and kicks breaker...


There is a check valve between the compressor and tank, and there is also an 'unloader valve' which blows the pressure off the compressor so that it starts under little load. I think your check valve is stuck open and the unloader valve is blowing tank pressure off.. and when the compressor tries to start it's starting against the pressure in the tank.

So check/replace/thaw the check valve and you'll be good to go. It's generally at the tank where the line from the compressor head goes into the tank, it'll be between the two somewhere.

Hi, my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. You need to bleed the water from tank. Loosen the valve at the bottom of tank until all water is out. I bleed mine daily. Thanks for choosing FixYa....John

1 month old compressor has oil in tank


the piston rings may have not seated allowing oil to get by. The oil is then carried to the tank with the air. After enough run time and cycles they should seat. If not and this is a new unit I would call the 800 # on the unit and talk to customer service at IR.

Have two knobs, one to show air pressure, the other is for what ?


You have to "unlock" the adjustment knob by first pushing the outside lock ring...turning the center knob to the right will give you approx 110psi...I doubt you'll have enough, even at max, to run even the smallest tool...without frequent breaks.
Good Luck

Compressor Support


Home Use: Compressed-air power tools can dramatically decrease the amount of time spent on a project. Many homeowners will use smaller, portable units (either hand-carried or wheeled) that move easily from the garage to the house, yard or roof. Common air toolsAir Tools such as brad nailersAir Nailers, reversible drillsAir Drills, and impact wrenchesAir Impact Wrenches require about 0–5 CFM (Cubic feet per minute — units in which air flow is measured). It's important to know if the compressor you purchase will drive the air tool you'll need for your project. For example, smaller air nailersAir Nailers run on 2 to 5 CFM at 70 to 90 PSI, while larger shearsShears, sandersSanders and polishersPolishers require up to 10 or more CFM and 100 to 120 PSI. Business Use: Air compressors used for business/professional applications are often classified “industrial grade.” They're packed with features that let you take on more demanding jobs with more horsepower, more CFM, more PSI and more (longer) run times. Though some industrial-grade compressors are portable, many are stationary units with large-capacity, ASME certified air tanks (up to 120 gallons), greater HP, more CFM air volume and faster recovery time to run a wide variety of air tools for as long as you need them to do the job.
