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.

Htachi ec89 Thermal Protection trips


Its your reset button on the compressor that's bad! I have the exact same compressor (EC89) and it did the same thing! Compressor would run great for 15-20 seconds, then trip the reset button. I ordered a new reset button off e-bay, replaced it, and it works fine now. Good overall compressor! but has cheep china electronics installed. just replace the reset button and you will be good to go....cheep fix!!!

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

It seems like motor blew. Is possible only a fuse problem?


If it does not have an external reset button, it will have an internal thermal overload that is built into the motor and resets itself after it cools down.

Shut off while using and won't restart, is there a reset button like on a garbage disposal ?


Well without model number and brand, it is impossible to say, but there could be. Motors on equipment quite often are thermally protected. They could be manually reset or automatic. The manual resets are usually a red button, usually somewhere near where the wiring enters the motor. Press it HARD to reset. If that was the problem, now you must find out why it overloaded. Was the pressure set to high? Did it run very extended period of time and overheat? What is the duty cycle of the compressor you have. Did you exceed that duty cycle? Check to be sure you have power on the circuit you are operating it on.

Champion VR7F will not restart without hitting reset switch.


Solved this problem. It required a new motor starter (or at least one component from the starter. The main power lead running to the thermal overload relay had oxidized and was conducting current poorly. Each time it would run ( I did this with the motor starter cover off) the lead going to the bottom side of the thermal overload would spark then glow red during the tank fill. I removed the bad section of wire, and installed a new thermal overload in the starter.

Craftsman 80 gallon air compressor...just stopped!


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

Compressor will not refill itself with air during use


IT SOUNDS LIKE THE PRESSURE SWITCH ISNT WORKING CORRECTLY. IT SHOULD CUT IT OFF AT DESIRED PRESSURE AND RESTART IT AT CUT IN PRESSURE. YOUR BOG DOWN PROBLEM ON RESTART IS PROBABLY DROPCORD TOO SMALL OR THE COMPRESSOR IS NOT UNLOADING WHEN IT SHUTS OFF WHICH IS ALSO CONTROLLED BY THE PRESSURE SWITCH. WHEN YOUR COMPRESSOR SHUTS DOWN YOU SHOULD HEAR A HISS FOR A FEW SECONDS. THE SWITCH IS DRAINING THE AIR FROM THE TOP OF THE PISTON SO IT DOESNT START UNDER A LOAD THE NEXT TIME. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Motor will not start


I had the same problem and the solution was to manually press the thermal overload button. The button is located under the tool box next the motor head. I do not believe I tripped the thermal overload during use, but I suppose anything is possible. I’ve been using the compressor in sub 40 deg F. temperatures. I found the following in the Owner’s Manual, but had to look at the part manual to locate the switch.
MOTOR THERMAL OVERLOAD
PROTECTOR: The electric motor
has a manual thermal overload
protector. If the motor overheats
for any reason, the thermal
overload protector will shut off
the motor. Turn pressure switch
to the “off” position and wait for
unit to cool before pushing the
reset button and restarting the
compressor.

Good Luck!
