SOURCE: portable air compressor wont turn on

1st check for power at the pressure switch. Take the cover of the switch and make sure you have line voltage at the terminals from the wall outlet.
if no voltage>replace cord or plug end with proper gauge wire.
If voltage, then, while you have the cover off of the switch **Make sure it is not plugged in** and operate the on off switch and visually check the operation of the switch. You should see some flat copper terminals that, when the switch is turned on, kinda rotate and drop onto some other copper terminals. The connection is kinda like points on a old car ignition, little pads on each copper thingie contact each other. I have seen these little pads become pitted and burnt from arcing. Try to clean these with a small file or pick if they are corroded. Get some electrical contact cleaner and clean the switch completely, *it is not only electrical, but is also mechanical*. Switches will intermittantly work, replace the whole pressure switch if there is heavy wear, charring or working intermittantly.
If this is all good, check the wires coming out of the switch for power to the motor, replace if necessary. If this is ok..
You probably have a bad motor. I have not had much success in revitalizing motors, its usually better to just replace it.

SOURCE: Wires on Compressor motor disconnected.

Some compressors come unwired so the purchaser can wire for 110 or 220 by their choice. This I would think would be possibly your case. Was this purchased new? In any case, here is a site where you may be able to obtain a manual,

http://powertool.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/coleman/coleman_air_compressor_product_list.html

and here is one with a similiar description but a different brand compressor.

hope this helps. copy and paste short cut, in case you may not know, highlight text you want to copy by holding down left mouse button and moving pointer of mouse over text desired,while cursor is still over the high lighted area release left button and right click mouse, select copy, then put cursor in the box you want to paste, right click and select paste

SOURCE: My craftsman 3 gal. air compressor, 921.153101 won't compress air

I WOULD TRY DISCONNECTING THE PIPING FROM THE HEAD DOWN TO THE TANK AND SEE IF ITS BLOWING AIR. COULD THE COMPRESSOR BE RUNNING BACKWARDS - YOU WOULD HAVE HAD TO CHANGE THE WIRING IN THE MOTOR.
VALVES IN THE HEAD COULD ALSO BE BROKEN. YOU CAN REMOVE THE INTAKE AND IT SHOULD **** YOUR FINGERS AT THE OPENING. HOPE THIS HELPS.

SOURCE: I have a Craftsman air compressor twin cylinder, 2

Go to: www.searsparts.com
The pressure control switch which the compressor usually pumps into and is mounted on the tank, contains a backflow check valve, the pressure regulator switch, and a compressor pressure release valve. It's probably available only as a complete unit. The pressure switch itself is usually a microswitch that can be obtained locally at a hardware or appliance parts house. Make sure that the pressure switch adjustment hasn't been set higher than the compressor can reach. If you remove the cover, you can watch for mechanical movement at the switch when it is supposed to shut off. Don't poke at anything in there with metal tools--220 volts will give you a lethal shock!

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

How do I wire my 60 gal 3 hp IR commpressor? What size wire, what size breakers, and where on the motor do I attach my wires. Motor says 15 amp, 220 volt. Thanks, Clint


I would use a # 10 wire size with a 30 amp breaker. The motor should already wired to the pressure switch unless it has a mag starter. If no mag starter incoming power should go to pressure switch not motor. If unit has a mag starter incoming power should go to top of mag starter.
