Es8 sullair won't build full pressure

I have a es8-25h sullair that will run at full discharge pressure for a day or two but than it drops off to the point where the other unit kicks on to make up its loss, I've checked over the air filter, checked the inlet valve actuation and all connections what do you suggest would cause this?

SOURCE: coleman compressor no build up of pressure

Parts for coleman are available at www.mastertoolrepair.com your compressor is listed as L0502710. If however you like to tinker, you can make a pretty good reed valve out of aluminum can material or other (any ideas?). It is fairly easy to cut, does not last as long as factory stainless steel, but for short term, why not? Good Luck

SOURCE: Pressure won't build up in tank

Your compressor is the oilless type that incorporates a vinyl/teflon piston ring and a cylinder that is open from the bottom. Remove the cover and push the piston to upmost position. Look for scratches along the upper portion of cylinder. If scratched, compression is leaking thru ring and will not fill tank. Replace with Sears part #k0650 cylinder /piston ring kit to restore full power. While the compressor is apart examing the valve plate and reed valves for wear. If worn replace with part #z-ac-0032. Reed valves tend to crack or loose their shape reducing efficiency. If cylinder and ring are in fair condition, then most likely reed/valve plate is the problem. Good luck and email if you have more questions.

SOURCE: Dewalt 4 gal air compressor will not build pressure in take.

The bleed valve is an unloader of sorts that allows the compressor to start with-out a load. It closes when the pressure in the airline reaches about 20-25lbs with good volume. If air volume is not sufficient, the valve will not close. To solve the problem lets do a few tests. A long cord will reduce power and reduce air volume. Try powering the compressor with-out extension cord. If bleed valve closes when you do not use a cord, the compressor is not getting enough voltage, use shorter cord of the 12 gauge quality and more hose to reach work. If valve still does not close, check for air leaks on all fittings including around pressure switch and drain valve with soapy water. Repair as necessary and retest. If no leaks were found, temporarily plug bleed valve port with screw/bolt and run compressor till set pressure cut-off while counting minuites/seconds. The compressor should fill and shut off within three minutes or so. If it takes an unusually long time to fill, then the reed valves /valve plate is worn and leaking pressure back into cylinger. Leaking valves will usually result in very hot discharge airline/air. Reinstall the bleed valve after test. Parts and partslist are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com . Good luck on the repair and email if you have other questions.

SOURCE: WILL NOT BUILD UP AIR PRESSURE PAST 20 LBS.

Check to see if air is leaking past 'pressure relief' valve. It's probably leaking and that's where all the air is going.

We relocated our Sullair 3700 about 30m from air receiver, due to excess dust. Now the compressor never stops running, trips on high pressure yet the receiver is not achieving the pressure required


would say dust has done something to do with it
before you had time to move it

will need the compressor serviced

first ..in simple words
to replace the compressor pressure shut off /turn on valve
that should fix the pressure trip build up limit problem

and maybe a partial strip down to clean out the casing
if dust build up is noted

Good afternoon. It starts and builds pressure unit it pops the safety valve. The engine rpms do kick down.


-The valve is not work properly or deffect. Need to be replace.

It's not safe to run.


Goos Luck.

2005 V-6 mustang , fuel pump will not run


it's designed to only run until it builds a specific pressure. once the pressure is reached it turns off. if the car isn't running and you suspect the fuel pump drop the tank take the fuel pump out. use two pieces of wire and hook it straight to the battery and see if it continues to run. if it run continuously thats is not your problem as it will continue to run trying to build up pressure but it won't be able to considering it's not in an air tight system

My MAC 700 laboured to kick in to build pressure, and then finally quit. It won't turn on with the switch in the


All compressors dump a little air when they shut off, it's the air in the pump head and discharge tube. This bleed off should only last two to three seconds. If this pressure isn't bled off the motor won't be able to restart when the pressure drops in the tank becuase there will be too much pressure in the pump head for it to start turning again. If you have a longer bleed off or if the motor is struggling to restart most likely you have a stuck or broke check valve. It's the piece where the discharge tube connects to the tank. It's designed to let air into the tank but not back out so the pressure valve can bleed off the air in the pump. On rare occasions you can remove it and clean it out but usually they have to be replaced. You would need Makita Part Number 409004-E.

HTC SMART BATTERY DISCHARGES VERY SOON SO I HAVE TO CHARGE IT TWICE A DAY GIVE ME SOLUTION


Ifthe cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

My water pump kicks on every 30 min or so even if there is no water used


When a pump goes on and off there is a water leak somewhere.
There should be a gauge. Let the pump build up pressure and watch the gauge.
The pressure will probably be dropping. This means that water is going somewhere. The leak could be anywhere that you use water, sprinklers, sinks, hose lines. If there is a valve above or near the pump, shut that valve and see if the pressure stops dropping. If the pressure stays up and the pump stops cycling on and off, the leak in in the pressure piping somewhere, you must locate it and repair it.
If the pressure continues to drop even with the discharge valve shut, the water must be leaking back into the well. There is a check valve somewhere on your line between the well and the pump. If this check valve is leaking, pressure will drop and the pump will come on to restore it.

If it is possible to shut off the discharge of the pump, shut that valve and watch the pressure gauge to see if it is dropping.

Sullair 185 screw compressor


The sullair 185 has a low oil pressure override button that you have to hold in while starting. after the oil pressure builds up(takes about ten seconds) you can release the button and the machine should continue to run.
