A blocked air filter will have this effect. Remove the air filter and try again If the compressor starts pumping air you have found your problem. If not the valves could be stuck open, shut or broken If there is oil or a lot of air being blown back out the oil filler hole the rings have worn or have been damaged. Either way if taking the filter off doesn't work someone has to pull the pump down and see the problem. I would check Bostichs site to see if there are parts available but if you have a tradesman you can trust get them to quote to fix.

sudden loss of capacity like that usually indicates broken or leaking valves in the head, or a blown gasket between inlet and discharge side of the head. if nothing is found there, then look at the piston and or cylinder bore for damage.

Compressor pressure only to 60 lb psi and no more


not sure but it sounds like the piston ring is worn out or you might have a bad valve.
p.s. its not your typical valve like in a car.

is it a wet compressor, check the oil.
