Question about Stanley Bostitch CWC200ST 3HP Oil Lube Stack k Compressor

1 Answer

WON'T RESTART THE COMPRESSOR IS FAIRLY NEW THE PROBLEM IS THAT IT WON'T RESTART BY ITSELF. I HAVE TO EITHER PRESS THE RESET BUTTON OR LET OUT ALL THE AIR FOR IT TO COME ON. I'M THINKING OF REPLACING THE RESET BUTTON FIRST CAUSE MOST TIME YOU HAVE TO PRESS IT MUTIPUL TIMES FOR IT TO WORK.

    That sounds very good. The compressor was plugged to a long extention cord at the time of use. I'll go directly to the outlet next time and if that don't work I'll check the capacitors. Thanks for the info.

The reset button used on Bostitch is the type that cuts out when motor is too hot to safely run. You must wait till system cools a bit before the reset button will reset. May be a good idea to solve overheating problem before replacing reset. It is always best to connect the compressor directly to the outlet instead of using an extension cord. If it is already connected directly to plug, insure that the outlet is capable of delivering amps needed for your compressor. When the compressor reaches rated pressure and shuts off there should be a small release of air from the pressure switch. This release of pressure allows the compessor to start in an unloaded state. If the compressor does not release the air in the hose the motor will not have the power to overcome the backpressure and cause the reset to open. There is a capacitor that could be at fault. The capacitor must be removed from the circuit to test. It should test within 95 percent of rated value. Generally, overheating is caused by low power. A failed capacitor is caused by low power. Good luck, enjoy.

Ac won't blow any air


Good Morning David - Here are some simple troubleshooting tips to help resolve this issue:
If the outside temperature or inside temperature is below 60 degrees, the unit may not run.
·
Confirm that the unit has power to it.
·
Check the power cord connection to the wall outlet is secure.
·
Make sure that the house circuit breaker has not tripped.
·
Make sure the unit is turned off, Press the TEST button, you will notice a click as the BUTTON pops out. Then press the RESET button. Again, you will notice a click as the button engages, now turn unit on. If the LCDI plug does not reset the cord may be damaged.
·
The "Cool" circuit has an automatic 3-minute compressor time delayed start if the unit is turned off and on quickly. This prevents overheating of the compressor and possible circuit breaker tripping and the fan will continue to run during this time.
·
If the unit has been turned off and on rapidly or if the thermostat was changed to a lower number and then immediately turned back to a higher number the compressor may not start. You must turn the unit off and wait a minimum of 3 minutes for the unit to equalize before restarting.
I would recommend reaching out to an experienced appliance tech just to ensure no troubleshooting step has been missed. Parts are often costly and if the problem is precisely diagnosed, it can save you a lot of time and funds. I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way.

Makita MAC700 pressure switch won't power on?


Pressure switches do not have reset buttons built in. The reset button is usually attached to the frame or cover and marked with amp rating. The pressure switch only responds to pressure in the tank. There is however a switch incorporated in the cover or on one side of the switch. Usually a red button that you pull, red or black switch/knob/lever to turn on top or side. If on/off switch broke off in the off postion, the compressor will act as yours does. Try to find a picture of your switch on ebay using the brand name or shape /look and determine where the switch should be positioned. If the switch is broken or fallen off /lost, replace the pressure switch with generic. Usually about $18. Pay attention to port size, number of ports and pressure cut-out. Good luck

How to reset compressor


Generally, compressor motors include a thermal overload switch that can be reset (after cooling off) by pressing the button (usually red-colored) on the motor. Sometimes, one has to press fairly hard to reset the overload. A quite noticeable click will be felt.

Husky Compressor Model WL660800AJ, S/N L8/4/04-00830 started, filled tank, cut off and now will not restart. I turned the reset switch to off overnight, but still will not start this morning. Power is...


All electric motor compressors have a reset switch somewhere on them, usually on the motor itself. Look for a small, usually white button, sometimes with a number on it. If its tripped the button will stick out, push it in to reset it.

Air compressors need a fair amount of amps to run and the requirement rises as the tank fill because the motor is working against the pressure in the tank. A rule of thumb is: always run longer air lines, NEVER use extension cords. If it is absolutely necessary to run an extension cord, make sure it's a 12 guage cord or larger, no more than 50 feet long.

Reset button


Unplug it for a few minutes and see if this resets the unit and cures the problem. If the unit was running when you did this, you cut power to the compressor and it will lock out for awhile until pressures equalise. This is normal and is meant to protect the compressor from being short cycled.

Is there a reset button on the motor itself. If there is, try pressing it to reset in case it has tripped.

Wont blow out cold air anymore?


hi...
Every air conditioner has a motor called a compressor. The compressor provides the cooling capacity for the air conditioner. If the compressor or its electrical controls are defective the compressor may try to start, fail, and create an electrical overload. If the unit does create an overload, every compressor circuit is also equipped with an overload safety switch. The safety switch is designed to protect the compressor from burning out. The safety switch will cut the power to the compressor for a certain length of time and then reset itself. When it resets it will allow the electricity to flow to the compressor once again. If the compressor then starts, the unit should function normally. If the compressor doesn't start when the overload resets, the overload will again cut the electricity to the compressor. This cycle will continue indefinitely. (Always allow three to five minutes before restarting the compressor.) If this situation is occurring, unplug the air conditioner and get help from a qualified repair technician. This problem is often fatal to the air conditioner because the cost of repair often exceeds the price of a new air conditioner...

hope this will give u a clear idea..
