Question about Campbell Hausfeld HL5402 4-Gallon Oil-Lubricated Air Compressor

Open Question

HL5402 Campbell- changed oil, now wont start.

Unit sounded like it was having problems filling with air so I shut it off and changed the oil, cleaned air intake etc. Unit will not fire up like it has on previous services. I have noticed the on off lever is getting rather stiff so I just usually leave in the "on" position.

SOURCE: AIR PRESSURE PROBLEM

The issue suggests that the head gasket is blown between the two cylinders or the reed valves are not seating or broken. The only other condition that would cause this is a leak. Here are a couple of simple tests. For leak spray soapy water on all connections and fittngs including the pressure regulator and the bottom of the pressure switch while unit is running. Repair as needed. If no leak is found, run compressor untill it reaches 60 or stops increasing and feel for suction at the air filter intake. The best way to check for suction is to remove the air filter and feel for suction at intake port-hole. The suction should be very strong. When valves are leaking it almost feels that the air is blowing out thru intake. If little or no suction, remove head and valveplate and replace parts as needed. Parts are available at www.chpower.com or www.toolpartsdirect.com. Good luck and post again if you have other question.

SOURCE: i have a campbell hausefield vs series air comp

There is a check valve on the tank where the line from the pump goes to. It should also have a smaller line running to the pressure switch. If the valve or spring inside is broke or stuck it will leak as you describe. You need Campbell Hausfeld part number CV221502AJ.

SOURCE: ok....My compressor knowledge and terms of parts

The compressor will fill slowly if there is a leak at a fitting or pressure leaking back from the checkvalve. It will also fill slowly if there is a worn / broken reed valve/s and or leaking gasket in the head. Try easy test first. With compressor running and air filter off, spray soapy water on all joints looking for leak (also spray on head of pump to check leaking bolts /gaskets). If leaking, repair as needed. If no leaks are found with soapy water, stop compressor and listen for leak at the pressure switch unloader valve. If no air appears to be leaking from the compressor then most likely problem is with reed valves or gasket in the head. Remove head very carefully trying not to tear gaskets. Examine reed valves for broken parts and or burned /broken gaskets. If gaskets or reed valves are bad, the discharge air tube will be very hot. Repair as needed. Good luck

Why does oil shoot out breather when I turn it on?


If the oil reservoir went dry, this will cause excessive heat and wear on the piston in the compressor. Once you refilled it, air now slips past the overly worn piston and blows oil out of the breather. This escaping air is the reason why the compressor will not get to more than 50 psi. You will need to repair (rebuild), or replace the compressor. Running it out of oil killed it.

How many liters of compredssor oil to fill tha compressor tank


I don't know which model of air compressor you own, some models require no oil whatsoever. The important thing to remember is that you should never put oil inside the tank. While it probably won't damage the compressor and may, in fact, be good for air tools, oil does not belong in the tank. The tank itself should contain clean, dry, air ONLY. Depending on the job you're performing, oil and water in the air tank will ruin your hard work, especially if you are spray painting. The air compressor motor does require oil (unless, again, it's oilless), just fill it through the oil filler hole until it barely starts to leak out. You can change the oil every year if you use your air compressor professionally. Most people who use their compressor only occasionally never change their oil or even check the level. My compressor is a 20 year old Campbell Hausfield with the original oil. I don't recommend that, just stating the facts...I do religiously drain the water out of the tank with the drain valve, and I have replaced the drive belt. Once.

Campbell Hausfeld compressor has trouble starting


Sounds like your unloader valve is not releasing pressure in the line to the compressor. When it shuts off after filling up if you do not here the psssht that they make when it is releasing the air in the line to the pump. then the line is still full of pressure which makes it hard for the motor to start. Check your unloader valve.

Air compressor fills, but slows down as the pressure builds


sounds like you need a new check valve which should be somewhere between the compressor outlet piping,tubing,etc and the tank which prevents the air in tank to back feed to the compressor which would cause hard starting and could damage the motor easy way to check is when you shut off the compressor with some air in the tank if the check valve is bad it would continue to bleed air out out the unloader valve .the unloader valve on your unit is most likely part of the pressure switch when the unit shuts of it should only bleed down the pressure in the pump so it would make it easy to start when needed hope i didn't confuse you
