SOURCE: compressor runs and runs but only builds 40lbs pressure

At the web address below you will find a parts list of your compressor. The most likely problem areas are the tube seal and the piston/cylinder. The tube seal seals the discharge tube to the head of the compressor. It will fail over time and cause the problem that you have. (only costs a few dollars) The other problem that you could have is a worn cylinder. Your compressor is oil free thus the piston ring is made of silicone vinyl and wears depending on conditions at the job site. Heavy dust/ dirt will shorten the life of the unit. With unit unpluged and covers removed, push the piston to top of stroke and examine upper portion of cylinder. If you see groves/scratches install cylinder kit. (cost around 39 dollars) In most cases I would replace both the seal and cyl kit. These parts are also available at your local dewalt service center or on line at dewalt.com. The folks at dewalt are very helpfull. Good luck with your repair and email if you have more questions.

SOURCE: Craftsman 3 gal., 1.5 hp air compressor: won't

The compressor will not auto shut off until it reaches the preset pressure which is usually around 100-130 psi - your problem is leakage of air from the oil filler cap suggesting that you have a failed internal valve.

Check the head gasket. Mine just did the same thing. Mine was blown between the two chambers on top. It's very thin right there. I went to the auto parts store and bought some gasket and made my own for about $6. It's up a working great...finally. BTW the gasket kit is on back order right now at Sear's parts website. It appears we aren't the only ones with the problem!

Locate the piston housing and remove the outer plate 4 screws
then tap on the next plate and when you remove it ( its the reed plate) you will most likely see a hole in one or more of the reeds
I am not technical but I have the same peoblem and I am trying to replace the reed plate on mine when I saw this. Good luck

I have an older i/r type 30 model 234 d4 that wont build air over 30 psi? The motor is a 1.5 hp and is wired correctly and theirs no water in the tank!!! Help!!


Hi dennis


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 suck 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.

Why my air compressor want shut off after building up pressure


If it is building up to the full rated pressure and there are no air leaks in the hoses then it is most likely the pressure switch. It is item 111 in this parts diagram.

Compressor reaches upper pressure limit of 120 psi but does not shut down or increase in pressure. When manually shut off at near 120 psi it will hold pressure for extended time.

I have Bostich CAP2040-OF compressor that initially would not shut off after building pressure. I would let it build up until the needed pressure then shut it off for use then turn it back on etc. Now...


You could have a combination of both, but most likely worn cylinder. Easy to check. Remove cover, with compressor running spray soapy water on all fittings including under pressure switch. Repair as needed. If no leaks, unplug compresor from power and turn crank until piston is at top of stroke. Look for scratches / worn area close to top of cylinder. If worn, replace cylinder / piston ring (pressure is leaking past cylinder/ring). If it looks ok, then most likely problem is head gasket or reed valves.

There is only one relief valve and it is on the outside. The valve is set to open if pressure builds past 160psi. You may be having trouble with the pressure regulator (large knob with high/low arrow). This regulator will leak at times. You can determing if it is leaking by unplugging /shutting off the compressor when you hear the leak. If the leak stops as you shut it off then most likely due to discharge tube seal at the head of the pump. If you continue to hear leak after shut off turn pressure knob counter clockwise all the way out. If you hear a change in the amount of leak or stops then pressure valve is problem.

When the compressor comes up to pressure and kicks off, you should normally hear a gasp of air escaping. That gasp is the release of pressure from the compressor itself - not the tank, and it is supposed to get released so that the compressor can restart without being preloaded with compressed air. My guess is that the gasp is not happening. It is probably some debris or a gummy mechanism. The mechanism is supposed to be triggered by the same mechanism that shuts off the motor.
