SOURCE: how do i repair a broken air regulator on a husky portable air

You will have to repalce the air regulator. Campbell Hausfeld is the maker of the Husky air compressors. There should be a different model number on your compressor that you can use to locate the part number on the chpower.com website. The only problem that I have come into is that the parts are not available for these models on a long term basis, and they may not offer any repair parts at all. If you can not locate the part on the Campbell Hausfeld site call Home Depot and ask them where you can get the part.

SOURCE: air compressor switch

That means that when the switch is turned on , and the complessor is pluged into a power outlet, the electric motor will start when the air pressure in the tank drops below 80 psi.and the motor will stop when the pressure reaches 100 psi.

please rate this,

SOURCE: how do make air compressor shut off at your desired air pressure

You compressor has a pilot valve that controls the tank pressure and the speed of the engine. Locate the brass pilot valve, (It has a flip lever that unloads the compressor) you will notice that it has two locking nuts that allow for adjustment when loosened. Loosen the small lock nut and turn the upper-most part of the pilot valve out to reduce pressure, in to increase pressure. Hope this helps, enjoy.

SOURCE: 1989 Ingersoll-Rand 185 cfm air compressor will not build up air

ITS A POSSIBILITY AND YOU BETTER HOPE ITS NOT SPINNING BECAUSE THE SCREW COMPRESSOR IS LOCKED UP. CHECK THE OIL LEVEL IN THE SUMP AND SEE IF THE ROTOR WILL TURN WHEN NOT RUNNING. TYPICALLY THE DIESEL ENGINE WILL TURN HIGHER RPMS WHEN IT HAS NO DRAG ( NO COMPRESSOR HOOKED UP ). YOU CAN GET THE PARTS FROM INGERSOL RAND OR ANY RENTAL YARD - UNITED, PENSKE, SUNBELT, ETC. THEIR MECHANIC SHOPS ARE USUALLY FOR HIRE AND CAN EVEN INSTALL IT FOR A CHARGE. ALSO MAKE SURE NOTHING BUILT A NEST IN THERE. IF YOU REMOVE THE SCREW, MAKE SURE AND WATCH FOR SHIMS. THOSE SHAFTS NEED TO LINED UP PERFECT TO REDUCE VIBRATION. GOOD LUCK

The compressor will fill slowly if there is a leak at a fitting or pressure leaking back from the checkvalve. It will also fill slowly if there is a worn / broken reed valve/s and or leaking gasket in the head. Try easy test first. With compressor running and air filter off, spray soapy water on all joints looking for leak (also spray on head of pump to check leaking bolts /gaskets). If leaking, repair as needed. If no leaks are found with soapy water, stop compressor and listen for leak at the pressure switch unloader valve. If no air appears to be leaking from the compressor then most likely problem is with reed valves or gasket in the head. Remove head very carefully trying not to tear gaskets. Examine reed valves for broken parts and or burned /broken gaskets. If gaskets or reed valves are bad, the discharge air tube will be very hot. Repair as needed. Good luck

Compressor keeps blowing release valve


Compressor pressure switch not working properly. Remove cover over pressure switch. Drain air out of tank. pressure switch contacts should open. If contacts do not open they may be stuck or welded close. Remove power and gently pry contacts apart. If they where welded together this will correct. If this doesn't correct replace pressure switch

My A/C stopped working on my 1995 Accord Ex. It'll sometimes start blowing cold air, then just blow hot air. Took it to the shop, and they said it's a electrical prob., cause the system has gas and when...


On most car aircon systems there is a high pressure switch built into the system. This is a small switch usually with two wires threaded into the metal pipe near the dryer/condenser. This switch is only there incase the pressure gets to great in the system it shuts the compressor off.
Sometimes these can be faulty and turn on and off when the feel like it. They are not that dear about $50.

Easy way to check if thats the problem is to find the switch disconect the plug with the two wires on it start the car and put on the aircon. Using a small piece of wire bridge the two wires in the plug together. If this is the problem you should hear the clutch on the compressor engage every time you touch these wires together. If you can let go of the plug with the wires joined and without it touching on any metal and go check inside the car for cold air.

Hope this helps.
Cheers

I have a 1999 GMC 3/4 ton truck. My air conditioning doesn't work


if it is low on freon the compressor will have 0 volts becuase the low pressure switch on the evaporator isn't triggering...if you have freon then replace the low pressure switch...take a small piece of wire and disconnect the low pressure switch and jump the two sides of the plug together...compressor should come on

High load and temperature in air compressor


The shut off and on is controled by the limit switch. There is contacts that springs pull down to contact there mating surfaces,the air builds up and over power the springs and lifts them up to shut off. So yours has maybe sparked enough to fuse together or someone has turned the adjusting nut which tightens the spring so it takes more air pressure to shut off. Make sure it is unpluged and remove the cover from the limit switch and look inside the cover for adjustmet instructions. Also check to see if the contact points are stuck together.

I have a husky compressor, model number y6010-wk. it builds pressure slow, and shuts down right away.


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.
