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

SOURCE: HUSKY PRO AIR COMPRESSOR 30 GAL I NEED TO KNOW HOW

Depends on what plan it was made in...
If you have the glass type sight... Only to the max you can see (top of site), then run it for a few mins, let it sit for a few more mins then add more if the level is near the bottom of the sight glass.

If it's the dipstick model that pushed in, there will be an upper and a lower level mark (holes, or checkered section) Keep it between the top and bottom marks.

Finally if it's the older screw-in type, remove the dipstick and wipe it. Set it back in BUT don't screw it in. Keep within the range on the dipstick from that position. Then of course screw it back in/

Good luck

SOURCE: husky air compressor/1.5 hp

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 you replace the regulator valve on a husky

I could not find parts for my husky compressor and had the same problem as you describe. I went to lowes and purchased fittings to draw air out of the safety port. Remove the safety pop valve and install t-fittings to allow you to reinstall safety valve and also a quick connect. If you want to be able to regulate the pressure, install a simple pressure regulator before the quick connect (also avail. at lowes). This remedy is not pretty but sure works great and simple. Problem with husky regulator is stripped thread /knob. Sometimes you can turn the knob if you drain air from tank; this will release the spring tension on the regulator knob.

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.

Im trying to find brushes for my electric motor in my husky air compressor mod# 417-270


I have not been able to find brushes for your type of compressor. I find a close match on ebay and shave/sand to size. Measure your brushes. Search ebay for "carbon brushes" looking for best price and size needed. Make sure that the armature is still good because the brushes will wear very fast if arm. is bad. Good luck

The red and black are the hot legs of the connection. the white is the neutral, and the green is the ground. the ground and the neutral in your cae can be pigtailed. you will need to know what the starting and run amperage is in order to determine the wire size. My guess would be a 12-3 with ground would be adequate with a 25 amp breaker.

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.
