SOURCE: husky comp on 1st start builds up 75 lbs and wont restart

Check the reset button on the motor to see if it tripped. The motor may be overheating. Some motors have an internal breaker and they have to cool off before they restart. Also check the pressure switch. Move the switch back and forth ( on and off ) and listen for a click. If it doesn't click with low to no air pressure then the switch is bad.

SOURCE: i have a husky compressor, model number y6010-wk.

Problem: My compressor is not producing the air that it once did. It takes twice as long to pump up.
Solution:
1)Turn off your compressor or disconnect the power.
2)Remove the connector tube that sends air to the tank.
3)Remove the head bolts on top of the pump.
4)Remove the head off of your pump.
5)Remove the valve plate off of your pump. It may be a one piece or a 2 piece design.
6)Inspect the valve plate for broken reed valves or broken gaskets above or below the valve plate.

SOURCE: compressor runs hot and won't build pressure

THE COPPER LINE IS SUPPOSED TO GET HOT, SCALDING HOT ACTUALLY. THE MOST COMMON REASON FOR COMPRESSORS NOT BUILDING PRESSURE IS CLOGGED AIR FILTER OR THE VALVES IN THE HEAD ARE BROKEN OR NOT OPENING AND CLOSING CORRECTLY. YOU MAY POSSIBLY HAVE A BAD AIR LEAK DOWNSTREAM BUT YOU CAN CLOSE THE DISCHARGE VALVE ON THE TANK TO ELIMINATE THAT PROBLEM. HOPE THIS HELPS OR GET YOU STARTED.

Air compressor starts and builds air then idles and when it goes to rebuild air it dies


if your saying it wont recover from idle down mode back to full speed , this might be the IR fuel pump/regulator problem (a pressure gauge will need to be added to verify this ) , if so save your money go with an aftermarket pump it'll last longer

Cold engine start


Two problems come to my mind, first the spark plug wires have high resistance and the second which I think makes more sense is that you have an injector leak down problem. If the vehicle is parked for more then 4/5 hours the fuel rail will loose pressure and so when you start to crank it builds up pressure and then finally starts!

What would cause crankcase pressure buildup in 20 hp honda engine


Worn piston rings would be my first guess. If so then the engine needs a rebuild.

Starts then dies & won't restart


check fuel pressure, should be 40 psi.
try 2 things

spray starting fluid in air intake to see if it will stay running. It's fue then.

Try turning key to on nd wait 5 seconds for system to build pressure and pump to shut off. Turn key off, wait for relay clcik noise or 10 seconds. then turn key to ON again and wait 5 seconds to build pressure again. Then start engine. If it starts better, you have a bad check valve in the fuel pump or a bad pressure regulator on the fuel rail (unlikely).

The pressure washer starts but no water will pass through. The model is RX2600.


Common problem. The water admitance valve is stuck in the bore. The valve lets in more water when pressure drops and when wand is closed the pressure builds and the incoming water is blocked. Remove the valve spool and clean the bore with crocus cloth on a dowel rod. Replace the O Rings and lube with plumber's grease and re-assemble. Often you can buy an O Ring kit for the unit. Deposits build up and stick the valve spool at the high pressure end. The valve is usually crossways to the shaft and right where the water input is connected.

What is wrong when your car starts up then dies a min. later? The battery and the brake light came on.


Seems like your electrical are firing up. So It's 90% with your fuel system, would have to say, a clogged fuel filter, if you havn't replace it recently, or clogged injectors. Cars start and dies later usually because fuel isn't getting to your engine due to not getting enought fuel, or cut off. When engine is turn of, fuel pressure builds up agian and thats why you are able to run it for a fuel seconds, but somethings clogged and then loose pressure and then engine dies. Try some fuel injector cleaner, and replace your fuel filter.

Honda gas power pressure washer runs for awhile then cuts off.


did you pour all of the old gas out before you started to use it. Sometimes condensation builds up in gas tank when stored. You need to dump old gas an put in new gas.
