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: I have a pancake compressor that won't hold air

If you replaced the head gasket then its probably the valve plate and gasket.

SOURCE: head gasket leak but I found out that this part is

If it is a head gasket leak and no gasket available. I would make one. You will need to buy a piece of high temp gasket material like garlock and it needs to be the correct thickness as the old material/gasket. Remove the old gasket and trace out a new one and cut it out. Or you can locate 2 bolt holes one on each side of the head put 2 holes in the material and use the bolts to hold it in place. Use a small hammer and tap around the edges. If done correctly while tapping it will cut the material. you can do bolt holes, the complete gasket like this.

Runs all the time. Why?


The pressure switch should cut off the compressor when cut-out pressure is reached. If however, there is a leak, or the reed valves /gaskets in the head/piston are faulty, the pressure will not build up enough to shut off. With the compressor running, spray soapy water on all fittings including around the head and drain valve. If no leak is found and pressure only builds to less than 50psi suspect reed valves. Parts are low in price and available from various on line stores including www.toolpartsdirect.com Good luck

Hitachi Ec 119 compressor will not build pressure beyond 25 pounds; no air is heard leaking after I power down the machine. Is it likely the check valve or pressure switch?


If your compressor keeps running and only builds to 25psi, I would suspect the reed valves, head gaskets or a leak. With the compressor running spray soapy water on all fittings, around the head area and tank components. If no leak is found, remove the air filter and feel for suction at the intake(make sure head is not too hot). If you feel good suction at first then suction is lost after reaching 25 psi, most likely reeds or gaskets (with bad reed valves, sometimes you will actually feel air blowing out of the intake). Good luck

Compressor will run, but only builds to 20 lb pressure. Line to tank gets hot.


Very hot air is an indication of leaking /broken head gasket or reed valve. Before you remove any parts, with compressor running, check all fittings for leaks with soapy water. If no leaks, remove head and examine parts. If reed valve is broken replace as needed or do creative repair. Some valve plates have multiple reeds and only one reed is broken. Depending on your skill level, you can thread the hole and seal with piece of bolt (finished repair must not be any thicker than the plate). Good luck

Will not build pressure past 40 psi


You have either damaged reed valves or piston ring. Both of which are common problems with this type of compressor. To diagnose: Remove the motor cover, then the four screws holding the cylinder head on. The valve plate is under the head and all eight reeds, five intake and three output, must be in very good condition to work properly. You'll need the valve plate, part number N017592, and head gasket, part number Z-D24819, if there are any damaged reed valves. If they're OK, check the piston ring. Remove the screw holding the piston on the flywheel and pull the con-rod out of the cylinder. The ring around the piston must be in perfect condition to build pressure. The connecting rod kit, part number KK-4964, is the only way to get the piston seal ring.

I have a Craftsman 919.165610 2 stage oil free air compressor. It will not build pressure? I have replaced the check valve, checked the filter and still no luck? Help


Problem sounds like valve plate /reed valves or worn cylinder /vinyl ring. Easy to check, push piston to top position and examine cylinder neer top looking for scratches. If scratched, most likely vinyl piston ring/s are worn and allowing pressure to leak past. If cylinders look good /shiney all the way up to top, remove head/s and examine reed plate/s for missing/broken reeds and or torn gasket/s. If your reed plate is missing one reed and your are good at being creative, you can seal individual hole by threading and plugging with thin piece of bolt. Good luck and good holidays

My compressor won't build pressure over 90lbs


Small leak will prevent the unit from building proper pressure. Check all connections with soapy water and repair as needed (including under cover). If no leaks are found check cylinder for scratches. Push piston to top of stroke and check walls for fine scratches. If scratched, pressure is leaking past vinyl piston ring. If no scratches or leaks, most likely reed valves, head gasket or combination of both. Easy test, with compressor running and attained 90 lbs, place finger over air intake and check for good suction (carefull could be hot) . If good suction, then air is leaking somewhere, of no suction suspect reed valves/worn cylinder, if air seems to be blowing out of intake, suspect reeds /gaskets. Good holidays

Air blowing out the intake


Cylinder head has two ports, intake (clean air coming in) and exhaust (air going into tank). Problem with my Sears compressor was the gasket that separates the two ports was blown. This causes exhaust to come out the intake port. Blown gasket may be a result of adding to much oil. Disconnect power supply, remove cylinder head, order or make new gasket, and reinstall. Connect power supply and watch the pressure build. My first attempt with home made gasket material allowed the pressure in the tank to build. Air was coming out the side of the cylinder head. Going to NAPA to buy the correct gasket material since Sears don't seem to sell the cylinder gasket anymore through Sears Parts. Good Luck

Chicago forge horizontal air compressor will not build


Here are some simple tests that will help solve your problem. Check for leaks with soapy water on all the joints and the drain valve. With compressor running and it has reached all the pressure it can muster, remove the air filter and place your finger over the intake port, you should feel good suction and the compressor should speed-up if pump is working and pressure is leaking out. If you feel good suction then pressure could be leaking past cylinder/ring if it is oilless. Check upper part of cylinder for scratches or torn vinyl ring. If you do not feel suction, but rather air blowing out of intake then you may have bad reed vales or torn gasket in head. Another simple test is to run compressor for a few minutes and disconnect power then listen for air leaks at the pressure switch unloader valve. If leaking replace the in-tank check valve (brass valve). Follow the discharge airline to the tank, there you will find the checkvalve. Good Luck and email if you have questions.

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.

WILL NOT BUILD PRESSURE


Many craftsman compressor are built by champbell hausfeld using a dry type of cylinder and piston (no oil, no crankcase). If dry type, check for worn cylinder and piston ring. Pieces of the vinyl ring can jamb between the reed valves in the head causing air to escape from the intake. If your compressor has a crankcase and oil, check for broken reed valves in head. Spray soap solution on hoses, checkvalve, drainvalve, and fittings to check for leaks. Most likely problem is reed valves broken or open. Parts are available from sears or match parts to chpower.com. enjoy
