Compressor wont stay running

I have a double barrel 5.5 hp emglo compressor that hasnt been started in a couple of years i drained the gas made sure the fuel lines were not plugged and after spraying some starter fluid into the intake it finally started up. It idles fine but when it goes to switch to full throttle it just dies every time, it kind of unussual that it will run practically full throttle with the choke on if i ease into it. The toggle on my pilot valve is also missing which i know i need to replace but could that be causing the problem? Thanks

Couple of yrs worth of varnish in carb or filter now has hard time getting fuel fast enough for high rpm. try running some fuel cleaner if you dont feel like taking bowl off carb and cleaning jet.

Hey there. I am having problems with my Emglo Dewalt d55151 compressor. I have taken it apart and and cleaned everything up. The reason I did all this was..because the cold start valve stays open and its...


The cold start valve will close when volume of air from compressor is sufficient to overcome spring under pin (allows the motor to come up to speed). Evidently your compressor is producing very little air. Usually the problem is leaking or broken reed valves or gaskets. Remove the head and look for torn/ leaking gaskets and replace as needed. Examing the reed valves and seats and look for broken cracked reeds or worn seats. Some of the valve plates used in Dewalt compressors are made of aluminum and would fail. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com or local dewalt service center. Good luck with your repair.

I have an Emglo compressor with a 8 HP Honda motor. The motor has a low oil level shut-off switch in the crankcase. My switch failed intermittently and the motor would run sometimes and not others. There is a wire going directly into the motor crankcase. On my unit, the switch is normally open and when there is enough oil in the motor, it closes to allow the engine to run. If you can't start the motor, unplug the wire that goes into the engine from the connector. Then stick a wire into that connector and hold it to metal on the engine & try to start the motor. If that switch is the culprit, it should now start.
Be advised that running the motor without the switch in the circuit would allow the motor to be run with no oil in it.

Emglo air compressor too much pneumatic fluid, how to determine correct amount?


What are you putting the oil in? The compressor takes regular non-detergent oil, and it should have a dipstick or a site glass. The guns on the other hand, take the pneumatic oil, and most of them now days, don't even take oil. Only the older ones. I haven't changed or touched the oil in my compressor in 20 years. Any of them. Check it out.

Have emglo airmate when I turn it on the overload trips I reset it turn on again sometimes it start or I have to do this a couple times to start?


It could be a couple of things. To me it sounds like you have a short in the motor or damage to the cylinder and piston. You need special equipment in order to test the armature and field for a short. There may also be damage to the brushes and brush holder. There could also be a problem with the cylinder and piston. The bearing could be bad causing a hard start for the motor. I think it could be the combination of the two problems listed above. You may want to check the pump first and if that is not the problem it is an electrical short in your motor in which case you should buy a new compressor. It will cost more to fix if the motor is damage than to buy a new one. "BER" Beyond Economical Repair.

Emglo airmate AM78HC4V; when trying to start compressor the motor will only hum


I had the same problem. Replace the motor capacitor. small white cilinder part with two wire plugs conected to it. This will have a single bolt holding it to the frame casing, you will find it under the black plastic shroud that covers the motor. Take it into any electrical or compressor shop and they will check it for you. costs about $35.00.

Its not getting fuel. There is a low oil shut off switch as well that go bad. most just bypass this unit. its connected to the on off switch as a 3rd leg. try that
if not check your fuel delivery. either the fuel line pet **** is closed/ clogged or a stuck needle in the carb is causing no fuel

Air conditioner wont stay running


Is the compressor running at all? During the move was the unit kept upright? The compressor cant compress a liquid so if the unit was set on one of its sides or upside down for very long the oil drained into the compression chamber and it will take an equal amount of time for it to drain back out do not try to run it until it has set upright for a day at best it will trip the overload at worst it will break a valve. Hope this was some help GL!
