Question about Campbell Hausfeld 26 - Gallon Air Compressor
I have a 4 year old Campbell Hausfield 26Gallon 175PSI oil-less air compressor. The model is WL651500AJ. About 2 years ago, the pressure stopped going higher than 35PSI no matter how long the motor runs on it. I know this pressure being displayed is fairly accurate because my SUV tire pressure is 35PSI and I can get my tires up to this PSI but it takes forever to do it. Prior to the problem I'm having, I could get the pressure up in less than a minute.
The pressure doesn't seem to be leaking out of the tank as I can leave it alone for a couple days and the pressure still shows 35PSI and I've verified this pressure. I have also cleaned the air filter and retaped all of the fittings. All pressure relief valves are shut obviously. I'm out of ideas, any help would be appreciated.
Hello, Your air compressor is leaking in the cylinder and is unable to produce more than the 35psi. Unfortunately oilless air compressors do not last very long. The rings and cylinders wear out. I have successfully repaired some units but, I usually recommend buying the oil type compressor. They last forever. If you want to try and repair it let me know and I'll help you. Good luck.
