This comperssor is oiless thus has a vinyl piston ring that wears quite fast depending on use and conditions at the work site. Slow pressure build or cycle never completes indicates a worn cylinder and piston ring. I would replace the cylinder, piston ring, valve plate, and intake valve. These parts are not expensive and available at www.bostitch.com. enjoy

Why does my pump loose pressure


Sounds like your not using enough water, and or your pipes to sprinkler is to to small, causing pump to build up to cut off head. I cant lay my hands on a performance chart for your pump, but 60 psi cut off and 20 on sounds about right. Try running another tap when your sprinkler is running, and see if this keeps your pump running

Why will my bostitch pancake compressor 240 psi tank 180 regulator that the guages will not show building pressure


Hi, There are different posibilities. I would need more information. Was it always like that? Does the guage on the main tank and the guage on the regulator both not show more than 20psi? When the auto shut-off is triggered do you feel there is more than 20 psi in the tank?

Stanley Bostitch compressor cpack model runs and runs but won't fill tank.


check for any air leaks and fix as needed. then look for oil coming from cylinder heads , if oil is coming from heads you have blown head gaskets ,it wont build pressure like this. you might also check the pop off valve to be blown open. push the pin in and see if air starts to build up then. If so get a new valve.also check the drain valve under the tank and make sure its closed.

If in the past your system can build-up pressure up to 40 psi even if the supply valve is open and water is being used in your house, then your pump impeller maybe already worn out that's why its pumping capacity was reduced.

You could have a combination of both, but most likely worn cylinder. Easy to check. Remove cover, with compressor running spray soapy water on all fittings including under pressure switch. Repair as needed. If no leaks, unplug compresor from power and turn crank until piston is at top of stroke. Look for scratches / worn area close to top of cylinder. If worn, replace cylinder / piston ring (pressure is leaking past cylinder/ring). If it looks ok, then most likely problem is head gasket or reed valves. Parts are available at www.bostitch.com Good luck!

My guess is the pressure switch is stuck. Unplug it take the cover off where you turn it on and tap around the contactors lightly with a screwdriver. Then plug it back in and try it.

I'd pull the cover off to expose top of cylinder head and have a look at any intake air filter. In parts diagram, It appears there is a small one that would likely clog during the texturing process.

My compressor won't build pressure over 90lbs


Small leak will prevent the unit from building proper pressure. Check all connections with soapy water and repair as needed (including under cover). If no leaks are found check cylinder for scratches. Push piston to top of stroke and check walls for fine scratches. If scratched, pressure is leaking past vinyl piston ring. If no scratches or leaks, most likely reed valves, head gasket or combination of both. Easy test, with compressor running and attained 90 lbs, place finger over air intake and check for good suction (carefull could be hot) . If good suction, then air is leaking somewhere, of no suction suspect reed valves/worn cylinder, if air seems to be blowing out of intake, suspect reeds /gaskets. Good holidays

WILL NOT BUILD UP AIR PRESSURE PAST 20 LBS.


Check to see if air is leaking past 'pressure relief' valve. It's probably leaking and that's where all the air is going.
