Air compressor is louder than normal - Air Tools & Compressors

  • momakmiller Mar 11, 2009

    My compressor kicks off and on at different times to. It is also louder than usual, I am thinking I may need a new one because sometimes my rearend will become a lowrider in just minutes, even while driving down the road. I have to shut the suspension air compressor switch off and wait a few minutes and then turn it back on for it to engage. I dont really think I have a hole or anything in hoses or in my air bags because I would think it would be a lowrider all the time. I think the compressor is trying to go out and may need a new one but I want to look at all my options first. Any suggestions or answers?

I have a 6 gallon bostich air compressor and runs high pitched and doesnt buil pressure

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.

Low air pressure

This sounds like it is either the pump is leaking from the piston or more commonly, the rubber seal that seals the outlet tube to the cylinder head blew out like mine. Let me guess, it got a lot louder than it was originally? The seals are readily available from sears parts direct, its like 3 bucks but shipping is around $8. Hope this helped

Craftsman 1 HP 4 Gal air compressor runs and sounds like the air pump is working but no pressure is building up

Cold weather will freeze the water the compressor normally makes and this can prevent the switch diaphragm from releasing.... also drain the tank

No psi

A louder motor usually means that it is running at a higher rpm. The most likely problem is bad seals around the compressor pistons. Once there is enough resistance to the seals they will begin to fail. As for a manual the best place to check is a CH authorized repair shop. Sometimes your local lawn mower shop will be able to assist you with parts help
