Question about Honda Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

Gates air compressor with a honda motor, electric start, with oil alert.

Ignition switch was remotely mounted, wiring was a mess. Rewired unit to schematics in manual, starts and runs, but won't shut off. I know I'm missing a ground somewhere, and the switch for the oil alert is not hooked up. Where do I go from here??

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

Coleman powermate compressor wont start. It has always ran fine. Went out and the tank has no pressure. Everything looks Ok, but it wont start. Doesnt even make a sound. There is power at the plug in. ...


Two main things to check are the motor circuit breaker and pressure switch. Without knowing your model number I don't know exactly where to tell you to look but somewhere on the electric motor, or plastic housing if it's remotely mounted, there should be a reset switch/button. They are usually red or white, sometimes black. Push it in and see if the motor works. If the breaker keeps popping off there is something making the motor work too hard like bad bearings in the motor or pump, piston/cylinder issues, etc. To check the pressure switch, unplug the cord or turn off the circuit breaker. Remove the cover on the pressure switch and find the wires from the cord and motor. You can jump them on the switch (black to black & white to white) or disconnect them and connect the two black wires together and two white wires together. Turn on the power and if the motor turns on it's the switch if not it may be that your motor is burnt up inside. Don't let it continue to run like this because it will overfill the tank to dangerous levels without the pressure switch wired in.

Dewalt /Emglo 10 gal ,150 psi with 5.5 Honda GSX just shuts off sometimes ,some days it works fine ,some days it wouldnt work at all ,looks like something with gas ,it would shut off after pumpin tank...


I have an Emglo compressor with a 8 HP Honda motor. The motor has a low oil level shut-off switch in the crankcase. My switch failed intermittently and the motor would run sometimes and not others. There is a wire going directly into the motor crankcase. On my unit, the switch is normally open and when there is enough oil in the motor, it closes to allow the engine to run. If you can't start the motor, unplug the wire that goes into the engine from the connector. Then stick a wire into that connector and hold it to metal on the engine & try to start the motor. If that switch is the culprit, it should now start.
Be advised that running the motor without the switch in the circuit would allow the motor to be run with no oil in it.

I have a honda gx160 5.5 generator will not start with the, i believe oil sensor plugged into the turn off switch oil level ok will i need to change the sensor also is this a big job.


i have never bothered to change onebecause you need to strip the motor,that is not realy such a big job if you have done a few ,but you just need to check the oil when you fill the gas tank , thatis simple enough . the oil alert is realy a gimmick for the dummies, it only takes 10 secs. to chech the oil manually

Battery to starter motor.


Just to be clear, the starter should have a large terminal (where the battery cable connects) and a smaller terminal (where the activation wire connects)
The starter is grounded via the mounting bolts.
The activation wire runs from the starter to the starter switch.

Honda 5.5 hp air comp. no spark wont run


Most honda engines have an oil sensor that prevents the engine from starting if the oil level is low or oil is dirty. Test coil by disconnecting oil sensor wire. With sensor disconnected coil should fire. If still no fire, check kill wire for short. If still no spark, coil may need to be replaced. enjoy
