SOURCE: need help wiring new pressure switch for craftsman air compressor

Assuming that you are wiring for 115v. Lets start with the ground. The cord that attaches to the wall outlet will have three wires, green, black , and white. Insert the cord thru one of the openings of the pressure switch and attach the green wire to the ground screw. Next look very closely at the contacts and notice that they are arrainged in pairs. There is a small brass bar with two contacts that completes the circuit for each line. Start with L1 and attach white wire from cord, then attach white wire from motor to the screw terminal that small brass bar bridges to (should be T1). Next attach black wire from cord to L2 and black wire from motor to remining screw. Remember that the small brass bar with two contacts is the bridge and simply connects white to white and black to black. Enjoy

SOURCE: Air leakage through pressure switch needle

1)Let your unit pump up.
2)Turn it off.
3)Find the supply line from the pump to the tank.
4)Remove the supply line from the pump head.
5a)If you hear air coming from the tank you have a bad check valve.
5b)If you do not hear air coming from the tank, you have a leaky
pressure switch.

SOURCE: Makita MAC2200 runs fine (with new Manifold Switch

I have worked on many makita compressors and have run-across this problem on a few of them. Your compressor has a check valve that is supposed to hold tank pressure after the switch reaches set pressure. There is an unloader valve built into the pressure switch that releases the pressure in the discharge hose after the unit shuts off. The unloader allows the compressor to restart with-out any pressure in the discharge line. If the brass check valve is leaking pressure back into the system, air will leak out of the unloader valve. Follow the discharge line to the tank and you will see the brass check valve. To test valve for fault, run the compressor till it builds around 80 psi and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Remove the 1/4" hose connector from the check valve and check for air leaking out of the valve. If it is leaking you can order form www.toolpartsdirect.com. or call the makita 1-800 number. The price is about the same. Good Luck on your repair.

Where can I get a new pressure switch for my puma 6060 air compressor


Replace the pressure switch with generic switch available on ebay. You only need the port sizes and pressure cut in/out. If your switch cut out at 150psi or higher, you might consider replacing it with one that cuts out at 125psi to increase the life of the compressor (assuming that you can get by with pressure range of 90 - 125). Good luck

My compresor dont want to kikin


Which compressor are you talking about? The air ride or the A/C?

For the air ride, it has fuses and relays. All the door jam switches and cargo doors must be shut.

For the A/C, you would verify that the system has Freon before attempting to replace a compressor. A low pressure switch would deactivate the compressor clutch. The system would need to be Evacuated with a Vacuum pump and then recharged, It is not like changing a starter. After prepping the system, you may need to jump the low pressure switch to get an initial charge of Freon, then reconnect the low pressure harness to the cut-out switch.

You need some type of guage to measure the charge. When the system has enough Freon to let the Low pressure switch provide power to the compressor clutch; the signal will be restored to the compressor.

Charge air pro model ir330e20 builds pressure to only 60 psi and will not stop running


Cbillgreene:

Your compressor is leaking air somewhere between the compressor head and the tank. With the compressor running, feel carefully around the ends of the tube that leads from the compressor head to the air tank. You will probably feel some air leaking around one end or the other. If so... remove the tube and find out which packing has failed.

I bought a brand new Duo Thermo rv ac unit and I am having a issue with the compressor. I have it running all day and it works fine, but when it is running at night the compressor shuts down frequently...


Hi,
Yes, the Air conditioner system is a bit low in charge, so when the air cools outside it drops the gas pressure too low and then the lose of charge switch cuts out till the pressure raises then it comes on again..

The best thing would be to get a pro to add some charge to this A/C system.

Here isa tip that I wrote about how to add refrigerant to a air conditioner or coolingsystem

When I turn on the ac it blow out hot air.


Do you hear the air conditioning compressor switch on (with the engine running) when you turn on the air conditioning from inside the car. Get a friend to turn on and off the air conditioning while you listen with the hood open engine running you should hear a clicking sound on and off each time the a/c is cycled on and off or the a/c clutch is not locking up the compressor. This may be due to many things (bad clutch, bad compressor, no power to controls or compressor clutch) but it could be a sign of low charge the system has a low pressure switch which prevents the system from being energized if the system has low refrigerant charge. By protecting itself it prevent catastrophic failure of the compressor and ensuing damage to the rest of the a/c system if the system looses it charge. You will need to have the system checked out by someone experienced in air conditioning work who will attach pressure gauges to your car and see if the refrigerant pressures are OK. The system naturally looses some refrigerant over time but if the system constantly looses charge then it has a leak that must be investigated and repaired before just recharging the system

My motor compressor thrifts every 5 mins.


If you have a low pressure switch on your air conditioner it's opening and closing, because you don't have enough refrigerant in the system or it's cycling on the thermal overload in the compressor because it's getting hot.
You need to charge your system to approximately 12° to 15° superheat not by pressure.

My PRO-SOURCE air compressor will not go over 50 psi


Your compressor has got a 'ring' problem. The rings on the pistons that compress air are leaking air by them and need to be replaced. Unless it's the 'pressure release' leaking. When it gets to 40 PSI or so, unplug it and listen for a leak. If no leak then it's the rings. inside on the piston. If you adjust the pressure switch all the way low, it might shut off near where it builds pressure to and you could at least use it some.
