Question about Campbell Hausfeld 26 - Gallon Air Compressor
The pump does get rather warm. I removed the exhaust tube from the tank and the pump worked well without overheating. When i reconnect however, it takes about 5 minutes just to get up to 20psi and then the knocking sound appears. Thanks for your suggestions.

SOURCE: Compressor will not start
It is a good sign that the motor turns freely with and without air. That indicates that you have good bearings and that the intank check valve is in good condition. Next you should check the capacitors and the condition of the windings. Some motors have start and run capacitors and others only have run cap. Remove from the circuit and test with meter having cap. test setting. Most shops will test them for free. The cap should test within 95% of stated ( uf ) value. Replace as needed. Finally check that the flyball switch at rear inside of motor is functioning correctly. At rest, switch is at start winding, then a split second after start, it shifts to run winding. Check contacts are not stuck and that switch is working and lastly that the winding are the color of new penny. Good luck.

SOUNDS LIKE THERE COULD BE DIRT OR RUST IN THE RELIEF VALVE REMOVE AND CHECK FOR OBSTRUCTIONS RELIEVE ALL PRESSURE BEFORE DOING THIS. SHOULD BE A DRAIN **** ON THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE TANK
