SOURCE: manual for husky air compressor ''easy to go''

For what it's worth Compressors are intended to be turned on and forgot (except for the noise). just for grins lets assume you have the stapler and air hose. you need to hook up the air hose to the compressor there usually is one or to either couplers or npt fittings (threaded). attach the hose to the compressor and using a quick coupler (prefered because it allows the gun to swivel) connect the gun to the hose. turn on the compressor and wait for it to build up pressure and *******. at this point you will need to locate the regulator on the compressor. it will be a knob next to one or two dial gages. crank the regulator a quarter turn either direction while watching the gages. It (one of them) moved either up or down . now you know how the regulator works and your almost a contractor. on to the stapler, load it and find a bit of scrap (what your working on would be best.) now shoot a staple into something and see if it goes in far enough or to far. adjust the regulator to compensate. do this until one of three things happens A you find the right staple depth B the compressor kicks on again, wait for it to turn off C you run out of nails, beer or intrest in the project. once you have found the correct pressure for your needs. you may fire at will you don't need to wait for the compressor to cycle while running the stapler just during set up. now your a contractor go have a beer.

just a last tip if you find you don't have the correct couplers home depot, harbor freight or amazon (online) are great sources for parts.

good luck and mind your fingers

Compressors pull a lot of juice that is why they come with a large power cord. If you use a small extension cord with it it will easily pop a breaker. So first check all your breakers. Second thing is check your manual to see if you have a reset switch on you compressor, as most do. It should be a small, red switch (rocker or push button type), located between the pump motor and compressor switch. The third is a long shot, check to see if the bleeder valve is functioning correctly. It will be the small copper tube running from the pump to the switch. Just make sure the small lever is free to move.

If this fails to resolve the problem then it is probably the main switch itself. That is a warranty issue. If it's out of warranty then your going to have to either repair or replace the switch yourself. Please feel free to ask for help if you need it in latter case.

SOURCE: how do i repair a broken air regulator on a husky portable air

On the H1820F, the regulator locking nut sets too far behind the cover to reach._824.jpgAfter setting the pressure, if you do not lock the knob normal vibraion will cause the threads to chatter and strip out and then you will have to replace the regulator.
Best to remove the cover so you can reach this locking nut.

Need a diaghram on how to wire a 220v air compressor pressure switch


You should have 3 wires coming from the pigtail. White,red and black. Depending on the application you may have a green wire too, the red and black are the hot wires that supply 220. Since you did not post the type or model of switch, it is hard to tell but red goes to one side of the switch and the black wire goes to the other terminal ON THE SAME SIDE. The other side of the switch goes to the motor. The white connects to a lug on the frame, if green is present it would connect with the white.

I have a new Husky Model C801H air compressor 230 Amp, how do hook up the wiring


I'm assuming you mean it's 230 volts, not 230 amps. (big difference here)..and I think it's actually 240 volts. (minor detail)

This is really a job best left to a qualified electrician, as you're going to need to have a 30-amp outlet installed (compare to an electric clothes dryer outlet, or a welder outlet).

The cord supplied with the compressor should be a 4-wire cord,consisting of 1 black, 1 white, 1 red and 1 green wire.

The green wire is the ground and it absolutely *must* be hooked up to guard against an electrocution hazard. Of the other 3 wires, the black is 1 or the 2 hot leads (the red is the other hot lead). The white wire is the neutral.

You will need a *TWO-POLE* 30-amp circuit breaker of the type that's made for your specific make & model of electrical panel. This breaker will have two separate, independent bussbar connections on the underside and 2 separate screw lugs to attach your Black & Red wires to (individually, not to the same lug). These are unique as to brand and model, so you will need the right one. If this is going in your home garage and you're lucky enough that your breaker box is there in the garage where the compressor is going, then it's going to be much easier. (much less expensive) Still I am going to stop here as I cannot recommend anyone working inside their electrical distribution panel unless they are a qualified electrician. Please hire an electrician to hook this up for you. Please do not attempt to hook it up yourself.

How to wire capacitors on a 26 gal. model 671049 air compressor?


Well, got to local hardware store, pick up 12/3 soow/soo wire, new plug, LOTS of electrical tape (lol one rollwould work 3M type 88 is best), 3 12ga wire nuts. splice in the wire( white-white, black-black, green-green) near the motor. Cover the spliced area with enough tape to well cover the splice area; more than just one layer of tape (do not be afraid to pull on tape; it holds better when tape is pulled and stretched). Connect the plug; white to silver, black to gold/brass, green to grounding lug/green. place a slight loop (4-6" dia) with spiced area opposite of where cable passes its self. either tape and/or zip-tie so no strain is placed on the splice. At this point compressor should be working.

Hi! sims146
The Green wire from the electric motor is ground. Check the compressor motor, make sure it is wired for 220-230 Volts. If it has a white wire it could be wired 120 Volts. There should be voltage and current ratings on the motor plate. I always double check these connections. At 230 Volts this motor should be 17 Amps full Load. A 25-30 amp fuses are required to protect this motor circuit. Otherwise up to a 42.5 Amp Inverse Time Delay Breaker could be used.
The welder circuit should have 230 Volts between the Red and Black wires. The white wire is Nutral / Ground. Hopefully this is a 30 to 40 Amp circuit. The Four prong air compressor outlet, White is Neutral, Black and Red 230 Volts, Gray should be ground. Please check with Voltmeter, as some times people swap colors.

The compressor is 3HP 230 v motor. In the pressure switch it is wired white and black from motor and green to ground. Is the white and black wire 115 volt each or it the white wire common and black wire...


If the motor is 230 v then it should have three wires, black, red, and green, however if the motor is convertible from 120 to 230v then the wire from the motor may be black, white, and green. Check the motors label to see if it has different wiring configurations. If the motor is 230 v only then the white wire would be the other side of the 230 v circuit, and the pressure switch should break both sides. Neutral is not used. Note that some people would use a single pole pressure switch, although this will work it is not recommended.

First are you sure your compressor is wired for 220. If so \,use the white and black for the hots connected to the black and red in your recptacle. Connect the green to green or bare conductor. The compressor most likely has no 120V devices on it so the neutral is not requied.
