Try putting another coupling directly on the tank.

Usually there are 2 gauges. The first one shows the pressure in the air tank and the second on shows the pressure that you like to let out.
So on top of the second gauge there is a pressure regulator. To adjust you have to grab the round object on top of the second gauge pull upp then rotate to adjust air flow.

SOURCE: Start up problem

The problem that you describe is caused by the in-tank check valve and/ or the unloader at the pressure switch. When the compressor cycles off the pressure switch releases the air that remains in the air line thru a small valve. There is a 1/4 " plastic tube extending from the check valve to the switch. Listen for the release of air as soon as the compressor stops. There is a small metal tab that pushes on the unloader valve that may need to be adjusted. The motor does not have enough power to start pumping if there is air/backpressure in the air line. If these parts are working correctly then check the value of the start capacitor and use meter to measure. The cap should test within 95 % of stated value. Parts are available at www.chpower.com. Enjoy

SOURCE: 6 gallon proforce air compressor not building any pressure

You might have a broken valve. You'll need to pull the head apart. But make sure replacement parts are available first. Does this unit have an unloader valve on it ? That could also be your problem. You probably should check this first

SOURCE: craftsman 1 gallon direct drive oil filled wont build air pressure

It sounds like you may have a broken reed on the diaphragm plate. This is located at the block. Remove the cover, and look for a cast metal assembly with fins. It will be attached to the side.

Why is gas leaking out my Evap fresh air hose every time i try to put gas in my car and start it


I suspect you are OVERFILLING your tank...

There should be a direct connection from your canister to the top of the fill tube. It is intended to safely draw out gas fumes.

even if you don't OVERFILL... gasoline can expand (coming from the cold ground... into a nice warm car) enough to repeat the symptoms you have depicted.

Try putting in less gas...

Things will most probably resolve themselves... otherwise you might need a new canister.

Be safe... DO NOT OVERFILL.

  • The hose in the tank with the filter on the free end connects directly to the carburetor input connection. It need be long enough within the tank to reach all corners of the tank as the saw is tipped. The feed line for all saws is plumbed like the above video, even those with primer bulbs (bleeders). If equipped with a bleeder please leave the 2 carburetor connections long enough they can be reversed until the saw is running. Logic says the upper most fitting (air bleed) goes to the primer but that is not always true.
  • If the saw is equipped with a bleeder, an output line from the carburetor connects to the suction side of the bleeder (once the bulb is collapsed it draws fuel from the tank through the carburetor to refill as it inflates). If the bleeder nipples are the same size connect a hose temporarily to one of them and place the free end in a small container of mix (Please be careful with open gasoline and as soon as it is no longer needed put it out of harms way.). Squeeze the bulb if it blows bubbles that is the return side, it gets a fairly long hose (often larger diameter) that attaches to a fitting on, or is inserted into the tank. If it appears nothing happens but when released fuel is drawn into the bleeder it requires a short section of hose (often smaller of 2 different diameters) and attaches to one of the carburetor fittings. If properly plumbed your saw will run with the carburetor to bleeder hose connection capped off at the carburetor. 2-cycle fuel system plumbing never changed; the ability to remove air from the carburetor chambers was added.
  • The pressure side of the bleeder returns displaced fuel to the tank as it is depressed and is often a larger diameter hose.
  • Take lots of notes and a few digital photographs to help with reassembly.
The IPL (exploded parts list) for your saw is the only detail for fuel line routing and it is sketchy at best. Fuel components and part numbers are listed but may be on different illustrations. They are also beneficial with disassembly/reassembly.

My 20 gallon campbell hausfeld wont hold air.what could be the problem


Joe:

There is an air leak somewhere in either the tank connections or the hose connections. Look at the tank and find the tube that runs from the top of the compressor to the tank (usually a brass line). grab a spray bottle and fill it with a soapy solution (dish washing soap and water is fine). Disconnect the rubber air hose from the tank (at the quick disconnect) and start the compressor. Spray the dishwashing solution on the brass line end fittings at the compressor head and the tank connection, and the quick disconnect fitting and where the quick disconnect connects to the air tank. If you see bubbles being blown, that is where your leak is. Also connect the hose to the tank and check your hose for leaks with the soapy solution. Once you find where the leak is, you can tighten the fitting or replace the faulty gasket or hose.

Pressure build up in gas tank Sporster


Harley Davidson has handled gas tank venting in a couple ways over the years. One is to allow the venting to be done by the gas cap the second is to have a non-venting cap and connect a vent hose to the tank which vents air from the top of the tank. You said your hose was dry rotted so it should be replaced. However, I don't feel that, by itself, would allow pressure to build up. Replace the hose and, while it's off, ensure the connection to the top of the tank is not plugged. When you put the tank back on, ensure the hose doesn't get crushed. It sounds like proper venting is all that is required.

Something else to consider is that a plugged vent would, most likely, cause a vacuum in the tank instead of pressure. (As the tank empties while riding, air can't come in to fill the space vacated by the gas.) The only reason I could expect that you build up pressure is if the vent is plugged and the tank gets heated from an outside source such as the sun.

I hope this is helpful.

Air compressor slow to build pressure, and noisy.


All large air compressors are very noisy.

How long it takes to come up to pressure depends on the size of the compressor piston(s), how fast they are running and the size of the air tank attached to it. (and if the tank or hoses have leaks)
A 20 gallon tank could easily take 10 minutes to get all the way up to 120 psi. 120 is very high, and probably the limit for the compressor. Depending on what you're using it for, try dropping the setting to say 80-90psi.

Compressor sucks air in through the outlet quick connect where the hose attaches. won't build pressure.


I have seen this condition many times. Usually, the comperssor head was removed for cleaning or repair and the valve plate was assembled incorrectly. Easy fix. Remove the head and flip the valve plate. Make sure that other components are correct. Examine plate for warping, gaskets for signs of leaking. Make sure that the motor is turning in the correct direction (fan blades on compressor pulley blowing air towards pump). Finally, take a look at the intank check valve. The valve will allow air into the tank and not let it flow back to the pump. In your case the valve must be faulty because because air was flowing from quick connect to pump. Good luck

first I hope that you drain the water out of the tank regularly. It seems as though you might have an air hose collapsing but in any case there is something apparently restricting air flow too the gun. try opening the petcock and see if you have steady air discharge or not and if you have another air hose try it. Also, are coming directly off the compressor to the tool or do you have an oiler or drier in line? if so, eliminate the accessory. Let me know how you do....I'm curious.

This is a stab in the dark.....but have you emptied the condensation out of the tank? It may reach max pressure....but have little air compressed inside the tanks. Just a guess.

GSF 600 SV 97 fuel problem


If the bike will run with the choke on then you have a lean fuel/air mixture condition. Most common cause is a vacuum leak or faulty pitcock. Spray some carb cleaner around the carb mounts with engine at idle, if the rpms change there is your leak.
Your petcock should have two hoses attached to it. One hose is the main flow to the carbs. The other hose is/should be a vacuum hose that allows the gas to flow (when vacuum is applied). When your petcock is in the PRI position, this will bypass the vacuum hose. Leaving it in PRI when motor off could possibly flood the engine. Check to see if that vacuum hose is attached properly with no splits or cracks near both joints. If all is attached properly your problem is the petcock itself. It has a diaphragm and 'return' spring. Weak return spring, clogged petcock, damaged diaphragm can all cause your problem. Also, after you recleaned and inspected the carbs, were they synched... if not, this needs to be done.
Good luck...i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya.
