    Same issue Bostitch compressor. Its the small compression fitting at the gauge manifold. Anybody know how to disconnect and seal it? The end attached to the tank has a nut. The end at the gauge doesn't, with no obvious means of disconnecting it.

Does the compressor continue to run but not build more pressure? In which case it is an air leak most likely, or does the compressor shut off at 50 PSI? In which case it is mose likely the pressure switch. If it is an air leak you can un-screw the guage and coat with putty or teflon tape and reinstall to clog the leak around the threads..

Why will my bostitch pancake compressor 240 psi tank 180 regulator that the guages will not show building pressure


Hi, There are different posibilities. I would need more information. Was it always like that? Does the guage on the main tank and the guage on the regulator both not show more than 20psi? When the auto shut-off is triggered do you feel there is more than 20 psi in the tank?

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.

My EC12 dosn,t reach max psi ? Go,s to around 50 psi keeps running .PS i replaced valve set one was bad and left shapnel on top of piston.


If you had shrapnel in the top of the piston, you probably have pieces in the wall and the rings are probably bad. I would tear it down look at everything from the top down to the cylinder or block. if there are gouges in the wall it will need to be honed if they are not real bad, otherwise replace it. Certainly replace the rings and inspect the piston as well. If you have the Italian pump it would be worth fixing, if not it may get costly. Also inspect all your gaskets and valves. You may also have shrapnel in your infeed tube which may get to the Non-Return valve and cause it to stick open and bleed off pressure. If you can post more details I maybe able to help you further.

Motor "bogs down" at roughly 120 psi...almost stops


You suspect this unit as being a two stage because of the unusually high cut off pressure. It is a single stage and the motor really has a difficult task and is being pushed to the limits. to reach this pressure. We usually reset the pressure to lower setting ~~ say around 140. Your pump probably has a leaking intank check valve (brass fitting at tank) or leaking valve plate in pump. Simple tests : with pressure in tank unplug compressor from outlet and listens for air leak around pressure switch. As you unplug the running compressor from outlet you should hear air leaking from pressure switch for just a moment as air is let out of airline from pump to tank. If air leaks out till zero pressure then change the valve. If tank holds pressure then valve probably ok. Next test, with no air in tank and air filter removed, plug in compressor and feel intake port for strong suction. If the valve plate is bad, suction will decrease as pressure neers the 120 mark till the point of feeling that air is actually blowing out of intake. With good valve plate there will be strong suction untill unit reaches set pressure. If valve plate is bad also change the cylinder and piston ring. Good luck with your repair.

AC problem with 2001 Montana passenger van


Did you replace the expansion valve?
Also try adding just a little more freon and see if that makes a difference....is there a sight glass you can view with the system activated to be sure you have it completely air free?

What settings do I use for the VP201 compressor


Leave the compressor setting to the highest level.The other guage is to regulate the pressure output.For example if you need 40 PSI turn this regulator until this output is reached

No air to hose on air compressor


Check to make sure that the regulator is set to the proper setting. You need to turn the knob clockwise to increase pressure. This is opposite of a valve which you turn counterclockwise to open.

Post a comment so we know how you did.

Thanks,

you need to feel around the head and see if there is air leaking anywhere usually around the tube that goes to the tank or the pressure relief valve

Normal operating pressures


Normal operating pressures will change as the freezer reaches the selected temperatures on the inside. Normals of minus 14 degrees on the inside would be around minus 4 psi on the suction and 150 pis on discharge. Now checking the pressure will require a set of guages that have been purged with the same freon before connecting with the suction line on freezer. If not purged the suction line will draw outside air into the system and cause freezing of air and moisture inside the capillary tube rendering the freezer inoperative, Hope this helps, Sea Breeze
