Porter cable pancake compressor will not shut off replaced manifold, still the same.


I would look at the pressure switch which shuts the electric off when the air pressure reaches its limit also check all wires going to and from this switch. Best checked with a multi-meter.

Porter Cable Pancake compressor builds pressure, but will not shut off when max pressure is achieved. Pressure switch is NOT the culprit.


Most P/C compressors shut off at 150psi. If the pressure switch is bad, the pressure will rise until the safety pops. If the safety is not opening, then most likely the cylinder / piston ring is worn to the point that pressure will not increase past safety range (cylinder could be scratched near top ). If cylinder and piston are ok, then air is leaking somewhere (check all joints with soapy water). Good luck

I was given a 3-HP HDC pancake compressor a few days ago and the man (he was throwing it away) said it worked although a bit slow to build up pressure and that it needed a new gasket. Is it worth keeping...


Hi app_3rp778
I would suggest that you replace the head gasket, it should not cost too much to replace it.
I would guess the gasket would be around $10-$15 usd
If you replace it yourself it would be very advantageous as the repair cost would only be the gasket.
If you take it to a repair shop, I would guess they would charge around $50-$60 usd for the repair of the compressor and replacement of the gasket
Do some research on the web for your parts or check out the webpage below.
Have the parts sent to your house...will be cheaper to take the part to the repair shop then to have them order it...they normally charge 200% on parts.
Also look at the following webpage for repair of the gasket and some more hints on how to repair a porter cable compressor pancake compressor, it is not your compressor but it will be somewhat like your compressors repair procedures.
Please take time to rate me

I have a Porter Cable pancake compressor Model CFFN250N-2 which worked great last year. This year I turn it on and it just continues to build pressur euntil the safety valve blows.


i think you have a problem with the pressure control. unplug the compressor and open the controller. check all the connections and really look it over. these pressure switches today just do not hold up well. sometimes there is enough moisture in the unit that it can freeze over winter and crack. if yours has a plastic hose to connect then check that over as well. check this site. they have a good parts break down ans look ar parts 111and 112 and 113. all called pressure switch service kit.

My four-year old PC pancake compressor starts fine but only builds up 60 psi no matter how I adjust the pressure regulator. The compressor motor runs continuously. I checked for air leaks and can't find...


First take off the head on the air pump and check the reed valves on the valve plate. If they got hot and warped or cracked they'll work to a point then no more pressure can be built up. Next check the pistion ring and cylinder wall. If either is damaged you'll only get so much pressure build-up then it will leak past the piston.

Yes...the drain valve on the bottom of the tank is just a standard 1/4 Drain Pedcock that you can purchase at most hardware store.
You can also find these in the hardware section of Lowes or Home Depot where they sell the Air Compressors.

Trouble building pressure


I would check the reed valves in the pump. One of them may be broken.

Air Leak From Pump Head on Porter Cable C2001 Pancake Compressor


The real question is where exactly is the leak coming from. Compressors have a pressure release valve designed to let the pressure off of the compressor motor so it can start when there is pressure in the tank. This valve is often the culprit and fairly easy to replace. You can order it direct from porter-cable online. Just in case double check the drain petcock sometimes these get worn and won't close completely and can easily be over looked when trouble shooting.
