Small black tube found loose under top cover, blows air uncontrol

I have found a small black tube that is coming up towards the pressure valve and shut off switch. I can't figure out where the tube is supposed to plug into the auto pressure switch. The air compressor just keeps running now and won't cycle off.

It should be a compression fitting on the bottom of the pressure switch. The tube is what supplies the air for the pressure switch. Disconnect the power before working on the unit.

If you remove the cover, you should be able to get access to it easier.

If you need more help, post a comment.

Thanks,

Tim

Red lion rl-mp16 pump not working


TO MUCH PRESSURE ON CK VALVE. DRILL A SMALL HOLE UNDER THE CK VALVE SO PUMP CAN START MOVING WATER AND IT CAN BUILD PRESSURE TO OVERCOME THE HEAD PRESSURE ON CK VALVE. AN 1/8" HOLE BELOW CK VALVE ON NIPPLE CONNECTING PUMP DISCHARGE TO CK VALVE, SO WHEN THE PUMP STARTS IT IS NOT PUSHING AGAINTS A STATIC HEAD. CAUTION: DONT DRILL HOLE SO THAT POINTS TOWARD FLOAT, KEEP IT LOW ENOUGH " UNDER WATER" SO THAT IT WONT SPRAY OUT OF PIT.

Senco air compressor pumps up..when it reaches full pressure it shuts off and then something under the electronic box opens and discharges all of the air.


That is the safety relief valve which means it has gone bad or you need to turn back the high pressure setting about 5 t0 10 psi. When this happens again there should be a small pin in the middle of it that has a metal ring through it. When it goes off push on that pin and if the air coming out stops or shuts off then you need to turn back the psi if not the valve needs replaced.

I have a Dewault D55141 air compressor that runs to 150 lbs of pressure and blows the valve and releases air. I bought it new about 2 yrs ago? What needs to be done with this problem? I noticed on this...


Hello;
150 is your cutout pressure. It's the factory setting and is not a problem. But, It appears you have a pop off (safety) that is set for 125 psi, So, If you want 150 psi, the pop off needs to be adjusted. If you want 125 the the cut out switch needs the adjusting. The setting. More than likely the 125 psi pop off valve is correct and the switch needs to be adjusted down below the pop off pressure. To sdjust the switch, remove the cover of the box the cord comes out of.Adjust using the screw(s). There should be one for cut in and another for cutout pressuressures. The cut in pressure should be 90 psi and the cutout should be at 125 psi.If the pop off valve blows off at 125, It needs either replace or adjusting. It's best to replace it.since the spring inside has lost tension. You will be constantly adjusting it otherwise. Good Luck -Ned_ Take caution not to get your tool or fingers into the electrical in the switch box.

How do i set the low pressure on the flotec switch


your pump should have a 20lb seperation ie. pump turns on at 20lb and off at 40lb or on at 50lb off at 70lb. under the cover of the switch theres two screws with springs under them.dont mess with the small one.the large one if you screw it down (right) will increase the pressure while maintaining the 20lb separation. one thing to keep in mind its fine to adjust the pressure BUT at the same time the air pressure in the tank needs to be adjusted to two lbs below the cut in pressure of the pump.

I believe the directions are in the top of the cover of the switch

When adding air to a pressure water pump ,i


Sounds like the bladder is gone or inproper air pressure in water storage tank.

Bladder goes bad check it out with step 1
1-
One way to check for sure with everything hooked up. The air valve on top of the tank if pressed you will get water out of the valve which should be only air. This will let you know it should replaced.

If Tank bladder is low in air and not water coming out.

2-If it checks ok put an air gauge to tank to check the air pressure, with a standard 40 gal tank you will have 28 psi of air in tank for it to function properly.

Tank may be air bound. There is an air valve on top of tank. Take cap off and depress valve momentarily. If water comes out of valve, the bladder is torn, and new tank is needed. If no water comes out, check the pre -charge pressure of tank.
First, run water in house and take note of the on-off pressure of your pump. There should be a water pressure gauge on the water line going into the tank. Take note of the cut on pressure and cut off pressure. Most well systems typically operate at 20-40, 30-50 lbs of pressure. Next,shut off electric to pump. Drain all water from tank. Take a tire gauge and check air pressure of tank. The static or pre-charge pressure should be two lbs less than the cut-on pressure,i.e if your system operates at 30-50, then the pre-charge pressure should be at 28lbs. Adjust pressure as needed. A small air compressor is ideal to use if more pressure is needed.

Metal fitting blew a cap w/spring...


It sounds like you have blown out the pressure relief safety valve or somone loosened the valve portion that retains the spring and valve so that it was just hanging on by a thread. This could be very serious. It could mean the automatic pressure control is not shutting off the compressor creating a very dangerous over pressure condition. This is exactly the purpose of the pressure relief valve.

As you do not understand the operation of this unit, I would take it to any shop that repairs small motors and tell then what happened and have them repair it. At the worst, you will need a new preswsure releif valve and a new pressure control switch.

I have seen the damage done by a 2 gallon compressor that blew up and I want you to know it is very serious

good luck

Where does the small black tube go thats around pressure switch


SOUNDS LIKE ITS THE UNLOADER LINE. IT SHOULD ATTACH TO THE SIDE OF THE PRESSURE SWITCH SO THAT WHEN IT CUTS OFF THE ELECTRIC SWITCH TRIPS A VALVE TO UNLOAD THE AIR FROM THE LINE.
