Question about Porter Cable C2002 Wk 150 Psi 6 Gal. Oil Free Compressor w/13 Piece Hose & Accessory Kit

1 Answer

How do you utilize the air pressure control knob.

How do you regulate the air pressure? I can not turn the regulator knob either way. This is a brand new compressor fresh out of the box. Is there some sort of trick when using the knob outside of mussel?

Most air pressure regulator knobs work like a "child-proof" cap on a medicine vial.  It has a spring inside that keeps it dis-engaged from the tooth like gears inside.  To turn the knob you must first pull out or push in the knob.  You should feel some resistance from the spring inside.  As you pull, you will feel the knob seat into the "teeth" inside.  Then you can turn the knob and change the air pressure supplied.   Note:  most air regulator valves work in the opposite manner of regular water valves.  Turning the knob clockwise should increase the air pressure... counter clockwise should decrease the pressure.       I hope this solution will bring you success.   Best Regards,  Michael Mittelsdorf

I have a 2010 Campbell Hausfeld FP 209499 3 gall air compressor that will not generate pressure


Hi john overton

Here are a few things to check, you may have already checked some of these.
Electricity...Compressors will run best with full 115Vot 15AMP/Or 220V electrical supply from a circuit, over the shortest electrical cord as possible.

Air Leaks..Place your ear close to the compressor and listen for air leaking, if you hear air that is not normal and means you have to locate and repair whatever it is that is leaking.
Check the air unloader valve... The air unloader valve will blown out air when you turned off the compressor, that is normal.
But it should not have air leaking out of it all of the time. If so then it is faulty and in need of repair/replacement.

Valves...If either the intake or exaust valves fail, breaks, or fails to seat, then your compressor will run 24 hours a day and never build up to the correct pressure for shut-off.

Gaskets...Check to see if your gaskets have failed.
You could have a gasket failure between the pistons and you will never know it because it shows no external air leak.
If this situation happens then the air will only cycle between cylinders and never build up the correct air pressure.
One way to check the gasket is remove the air filter, then put your hand over the intake.

My Honda Pressure washer will not start. I have drained the old gas an replaced with new.


Hi
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting a bright blue spark at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and pulling the crank rope, if you are getting a nice blue spark then:
Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.
Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
Note: ALWAYS USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN YOUR JETS AND PASSAGES, VERY IMPORTANT.
Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that, and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Check you fuel line condition after a while they will degrade and need replacment.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
Make sure you are using fresh fuel...and oil mix if your using a two cycle mower or weedeater with the oil to the right mixture and not too much oil as it can cause hard starting.
If the pressure washer is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
The diaphgram may look good and flexible, but it can be deceiving and not act as a fuel pump as it should because it has become too hard and will cause hard starting,start and run and shut off, etc.
When you clean your carburetor, I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.The higher air pressure is needed to blow some of the trash/debris from the fuel or air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit, or you could also ask the parts man that you get your kit from.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.
Once you have your carburetor cleaned/rebuilt that should solve your problem.

Sounds like you need to repair the control assembly in the cab. If it is hydraulic, fluid seems to be bypassing the control piston that affects the CCW rotation. Possible broken rings on the valve piston. If the rotation is electrical, look for a damaged control switch. Hope this helps!

Air leak after reaching 150 psi & shutting off


Everything I read in the owners manual suggest you take unit in for a trained service tech to repair. It could possibly be a few things causing this but from what I can see there are not that many replaceable repairable parts for this. Good luck

How to Install Air Compressor and Nail Gun


Set up the pressure on the air compressor. First plug the air compressor in, then check the pressure. It should be between 90 and 110 pounds per square inch (PSI) for home use. If it is not in this range, turn the knob to the left to decrease the pressure and to the right to increase the pressure. Use the appropriate nail gun for the job. For example, to nail shoe molding to base boards, a standard finishing nail gun would be perfect. It holds any size nail between 5/8 inch and 2 inches. This nail gun could be used for many projects with great results. Check the gauge the nail gun takes before purchasing the nails for the gun. If you get the wrong gauge they will not fit in the gun. You can check this by looking at the information printed on the side of the nail gun next to the model number. You can also open the nail chamber for this information. Attach the nail gun to the air compressor. You can do this before or after you load the nails into the gun. Use the air compressor hose to attach to the bottom of the nail gun. It screws on much like the end of a hose. If you do not have the right size air hose, you can find one at your local hardware store.

Blow Gun Specs


Specifications for air blow guns include pressure capacity and air line connection type. Pressure capacity or maximum rated pressure is rated at the air inlet and measured in pounds per square inch (psi). Many types of air line connectors are available. Quick-release connectors contain fittings that are attached internally. By contrast, push-on connectors include barbed ferrules. Air blow guns use several types of national pipe thread (NPT) connectors, most of which are inch-based and female. Important NPT measurements include threads per inch (TPI) and outside diameter (OD). 1/8” NPT connectors have 27 TPI and an OD of 0.405”. 1/4” NPT connectors have 18 TPI and an OD of 0.540”. 3/8” NPT connectors also have 18 TPI, but an OD of 0.675”. 1/2” connectors have 14 TPI and an OD of 0.840”. #10-32 NPT threads are also available. Air line connections that can swivel or pivot are suitable for applications that require versatile positioning.
