Coleman Powermate VP201 will not go above 40 lbs.


Hi mjschulte815

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.
Please take time to rate me

If correct then it will **** 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.

Coleman powermate compressor wont start. It has always ran fine. Went out and the tank has no pressure. Everything looks Ok, but it wont start. Doesnt even make a sound. There is power at the plug in. ...


Two main things to check are the motor circuit breaker and pressure switch. Without knowing your model number I don't know exactly where to tell you to look but somewhere on the electric motor, or plastic housing if it's remotely mounted, there should be a reset switch/button. They are usually red or white, sometimes black. Push it in and see if the motor works. If the breaker keeps popping off there is something making the motor work too hard like bad bearings in the motor or pump, piston/cylinder issues, etc. To check the pressure switch, unplug the cord or turn off the circuit breaker. Remove the cover on the pressure switch and find the wires from the cord and motor. You can jump them on the switch (black to black & white to white) or disconnect them and connect the two black wires together and two white wires together. Turn on the power and if the motor turns on it's the switch if not it may be that your motor is burnt up inside. Don't let it continue to run like this because it will overfill the tank to dangerous levels without the pressure switch wired in.

My compressor builds up pressure in the tank but nothing comes out unless the unit is on and then it just trickles out like nothing is in the tank


have you drained tank
air tanks fill with moisture and crud if not regularly drained
this takes up room in tank and will eventually clog valves etc
you may have to remove hose conection from tank to clean out crud that has clogged it

Motor starts sounding normal then after 2-3 seconds stops & just humms.


I suspect the check valve is stuck closed causing excess high pressure in the cylinder and too much load for the motor. The check valve is OFTEN right at the tank where the compressor output line goes into the tank.

Compressor pressure only to 60 lb psi and no more


not sure but it sounds like the piston ring is worn out or you might have a bad valve.
p.s. its not your typical valve like in a car.

is it a wet compressor, check the oil.

Air pressure iI gone but motor works haappened all


As I understand it, your air compressor motor runs but you can not build pressure. Is this correct?

Two main reasons:

#1: Your safety valve popped and the air is going straight out the safety valve. You should be hearing a loud hissing noise if this is the case. Press the safety valve back in and you should build pressure. Many such valves have a ring on them (to help you find them). It should be very near the pressure switch.

#2: You have a broken reed valve. A reed valve opens or closes based on the pressure it is under. It allows air to enter the tank on the compression stroke, but will not let it out of the tank as the piston strokes up and down. If it is broken or stuck open, you cannot build pressure.

and #3, a after thought, no extra charge ;-) The rings on the piston may have broken.

For #2 and #3, it will be necessary for you to remove the head to inspect.

Find repair parts at the Coleman web site.

I hope this helps you solve your trouble.

Coleman Powermate Model Number BV6548049, pressure switch leak.


Usually, a leak at the pressure switch unloader valve is caused by the checkvalve in the tank. The unloader valve at the pressure switch bleeds out the air from discharge tube after compressor reaches set pressure. This only takes a few seconds. If air continues to leak then air is leaking back into the discharge tube past the tank checkvalve. Follow the air discharge line from the compressor to the brass valve at the tank. The brass valve is the checkvalve that holds the pressure in the tank. There are usually two connections at this valve. One is the unloader tube to the pressure switch. Simple test for leaking checkvalve, with pressure in tank unplug or switch off the compressor and remove the small unloader line at the checkvalve(brass valve) and look/listen for leak. If leaking, remove the checkvalve and examine seat/check for debris keeping the valve slightly open. If it cannot be cleaned, order generic replacement from www.grainger.com. It will cost less than the factory checkvalve. Just pay attention to the thread sizes for easy fit. Good Luck on your repair and email if you have questions.

Coleman compressor no build up of pressure


Parts for coleman are available at www.mastertoolrepair.com your compressor is listed as L0502710. If however you like to tinker, you can make a pretty good reed valve out of aluminum can material or other (any ideas?). It is fairly easy to cut, does not last as long as factory stainless steel, but for short term, why not? Good Luck
