Question about Hitachi EC2510E 5.5hp Gas Air Compressor

1 Answer

Gas air compressor shuts down

This is a Campbell Hausfeld Extreme with a 5.5 hp Honda GX 160 which has a low oil shutoff. The oil level is good. Engine starts fine but only runs for a minute or so and shuts down. It sometimes reaches full pressure (125psi) other times not. This is a two tank contractor. Any ideas as to the problem. Help is appreciated greatly.

IS IT BUILDING TO THE UNLOAD PRESSURE AND THEN STALLING OR JUST SHUTTING DOWN ANYTIME. IS THE UNIT SITTING AT AN ANGLE?

DOES IT WORK FINE WITH THE LOW OIL SWITCH UNPLUGGED? UNPLUG SWITCH AND LEAVE IT UNPLUGGED FOREVER.THEY'RE ALL P.O.S.

Air compressor runs but i only get 20 psi i check for oil but i never find were to test the oil level do this air compressor is oilless?


Yes it has no oil. and you need to remove the top cover and check for air leak between the pump an the tank. if you have a large leak the tank will not fill. Two screws and the cover should snap off. check copper line for blown seals.
