The ring on the piston may be worn or cracked. The intake valve might be letting air out if it's leaking

Searching for fenwai pressure control fw 10


If your compressor is a piston compressor, try cleaning the check valve which comes from the pressure switch to the tank (it has a little spring and a rubber/plastic valve inside)
Otherwise check to see if it is sucking air in properly, (whilst it is running, remove the air filter, and very quickly put your hand over the air intake to see if it is sucking whilst it is at 20 psi, if not, then it may be that the valves in the head maybe either broken or not seating properly

If it is not a piston compressor, then it maybe the MPV needing some attention

Hope that helps

Is your compressor a piston compressor? It may be that the valves in the head are shot?
Remove the Air Filter and quickly place your hand over the air intake hole, if you feel it **** AND blow, then theres your problem (It should only ****) these can be replaced.

the start capacitor on the motor body is weak,the motor needs this component to over come the air pressure when cycling to re-build the low air pressure,change both the start and run capacitors when doing the start because the other run capacitor is just as old and it will soon fail

Please check your compressor pumping.
How to check?
Keep pressure gauge in discharge pipe and also keep open suction pipe, test run. It builds the pressure up to 300 psi or slightly more than that. If it's less than 275psi, it's defective.

Cycling compressor


The pressure switch will shut off when the set pressure is obtained. Usually about 100 to 120 lbs. If the compressor stops at lower pressure than mentioned you may try to adjust the pressure by looking under the switch cover for adjustment screw/nut.(no more than a few turns) Increase pressure by increasing spring tension. Quick cycling is usually caused by air leaking from tubing, drain valve or check valve. After compressor shuts off unplug it from the outlet and spray soapy water on all fittings and drain valve. Repair leaks and test for quick cycling, however the compressor should reach 100-120 before shutting off. Some small compressors have a thermal reset but that usually takes a few minutes to reset. Pressure switch is defective if it shuts off before setting mentioned. Enjoy
