Question about Husky 12-piece Brass Air-compressor Accessory Kit

Open Question

I have a Husky Y1010 air compressor that won't keep the pressure up. I read it might be a broken reed valve. Does anyone know how to replace that part?

The air pressure won't go above 40psi on my Husky Y1010. Read suggestions it might be a broken reed valve. How do I fix that?


Hi Joanne

Here are a few things to check, you may have already checked some of these.

Electricity...Compressors will run best with full 115Vot 15AMP/Or 220V electrical supply from a circuit, over the shortest electrical cord as possible.

Air Leaks..Place your ear close to the compressor and listen for air leaking, if you hear air that is not normal and means you have to locate and repair whatever it is that is leaking.
Check the air unloader valve... The air unloader valve will blown out air when you turned off the compressor, that is normal.
But it should not have air leaking out of it all of the time. If so then it is faulty and in need of repair/replacement.

Valves...If either the intake or exaust valves fail, breaks, or fails to seat, then your compressor will run 24 hours a day and never build up to the correct pressure for shut-off.

Gaskets...Check to see if your gaskets have failed.
You could have a gasket failure between the pistons and you will never know it because it shows no external air leak.
If this situation happens then the air will only cycle between cylinders and never build up the correct air pressure.
One way to check the gasket is remove the air filter, then put your hand over the intake.
If correct then it will suck you hand against the intake.
If the valve or valves have failed then you will feel the air sucking in and blowing out.

Piston Rings and Cylinder...The piston rings could be stuck,broken, or worn and not allowing the correct pressure to build up in your tank.
A worn cylinder will also contribute to the problem of pressure build-up.
Pressure Switch...Check for air leaks at the pressure switch, it has a rubber diaphram that can fail and leak air out of the system.

Why can`t my compressor pump over ten pounds ?


You didn't state what model compressor you have so in gerneral: if you have no leaks, remove the air pump head to check the reed valves on the valve plate and the condition of the piston, piston ring(s) and cylinder. If the reed valves are broken or warped from heat they won't seal properly. If the piston ring(s) are broken or the cylinder is badly scored air will leak past the piston instead of compressing and going into the tank.

Air Compressor will only pump up to 35lbs.


The two main areas to inspect if your pressure isn't going over 35psi are the valve plate and piston/cylinder assembly. If the reed valves on the valve plate are bent, warped or broken, usually attributable to high heat, they won't seal well enough to get higher pressures. If the cylinder is badly scored or the piston and/or piston rings are damaged, usually attributable to running the pump motor with low or no oil, the seal between them won't be good enough to get the pressure any higher.

I have a husky scout 1.5 gallon air compressor. It only builds pressure to about 38 psi. It doesn't build up any more pressure.


You have either warped or broken reed valves on the valve plate or a broken piston ring and/or a damaged cylinder. Any of these will allow a small amount of air compression but as the tank gets pressure in it, it gets harder to push more air into it. If the reed valves or piston to cylinder seal is compromised more and more air will leak past the bad reed or the piston as the pressure goes up in the tank. You'll have to disassemble the air pump to find out what's damaged and needs replacing.

Can I adjust the tank pressure on a Husky 1506 compressor. pop off keeps engageing, so I need to adjust so that compressor shut off automatically


Before you change any parts, check that the pop valve is not faulty. Look closely at the pop valve to read set release pressure. If the valve is releasing before marked reading, replace valve instead to one slightly higher. The pressure may or may not be adjustable at the switch (need to replace the switch) depending on switch installed at the factory (parts list does not give enough information). If your switch has a remove-abel cap with adjustment screws/nuts, post again with model number of switch for info on adjustment. Good luck

Campbell Hausfeld 13 gal air copressor, when I trun it on it won't build up max pressure and won't shut-off One of the gauges reads 40 PSI the other reads 60 PSI.


Your problem is most likely because of damage to the valve plate or piston & cylinder. If one or both of these are not working properly you'll get partial pressure and the unit won't turn off because the tank never comes up to full pressure. Things to check for are damage to the reeds on the valve plate, they could be bent from overheating or broken from use or wear or damage to the piston seal which can cause damage to the cylinder. If any of these aren't sealing properly the air pressure will come up to a point where the air leaks out faster than it goes into the tank. Without your particular model number I don't know which parts to recommend but if you contact Campbell Hausfeld they'll help you get the right parts.

Will only build air to 35 lb .keeps running but no air above 35lb


Most likely it is a leaking valve. If ether the intake or exhaust valve, but not both, leak back pressure will be low. These small compressors usually use reed valves. Try and remove the head, and check that the reeds are not bent up, and that the seat it seals against is not cut. If the reads are bent you can sometimes flip them over. You may be able to get new reads from Sears if they are bent or broken.

Compressor will run but not build pressure. Air is coming out of compressor inlet filter. What could be my problem


You have a broken reed valve(s) in the pump. Without knowing your model number I don't know if it's repairable nor can I recommend a replacement part. If the head is removable, take it off and check the valve plate under it. There should be two or more reeds on each side. If they are chipped or broken or warped from heat they won't seal the valve holes and the system can't build pressure.

Compressor 25 psi thats it


I assume it keeps pumping, but doesn't build any more pressure. That is probably bad valves or rings. If your unit has a crankcase breather, and it is puffing alot of air, look for rings. Otherwise valves.

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.
