Question about Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

No air pressure!

Hi: I own a Husky air compressor. It's a 4 gallon 'doughnut' tank type. All of a sudden it doesn't hold any air: the motor runs forever but there is no indication on the meters of any air pressure. Can thos be fixed or should I invest in another? Thanks!

There are "0" rings in the compressor, if the compressor is less than $200 it's a "throw away". it can be repaired but usually not worth it

Air compressor cannot spin up with pressure in tank sometimes


There is an unloader valve and a check valve on the discharge side of the pump. The check valve is not holding and the unloader is not dumping the pressure so the compressor cannot start. Since it is new, you may want to take it back. If not you are going to be replacing parts.

Husky Q26 will not build pressure. Where do I buy parts?


First check the check valve and also if it has an unloader valve make sure it is closing.

The main check valve is often right where the air goes into the tank. The unloader can be integral to the pressure switch or on the compressor.

Husky 1.5 HP 6 gallon compressor motor runs but does not build up any pressure. Unit is only 2 years old and is only occassionally used to air up my car tires.


Your manual pressure release valve might be stuck open or blocked open by some debree. It should have a steel pull ring on the end of it. Exercise it and try running it again. Also the pressure regulator adjustment might have been backed off to zero. Crank it clockwise and see if this helps. Check the air output lines from the compressor to the tank for leaks.

Piston snaped on my husky 1.7 hp 32 gallon


I have had sad service with Campbell Hausfeld. You can go to their website, type in the model number, then ask for recalls on that model. My guess is there is no recall.

If not, you might consider buying a replacement compressor motor to mount on that tank.. The tank is too good to throw away. Try Northerntools.com.

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.

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.
