SOURCE: Crank bearing cap blew out on Porter cable air compressor

Your compressor is sold under various part #s depending on brand name. The link below is the breakdown for ac-0171.
http://www.devilbissparts.com/OilLubeStat%20PDF%20files/ac-0171.pdf. You will notice that there is no vent to release internal pressure. Most brands have a filler/dipstick which is also a vent. As the compressor wears there is a normal increase in crank pressure caused by pressure passing thru the rings. I have seen home made vents installed on the bearing cap. If you are creative you can make one yourself using the same cap or a metal cap (axel bearing cap) that fits the opening. A crankcase vent is a very simple device. A small hole to atmosphere with a bit of oil resistant foam behind to prevent oil from being blown out the hole. Works best when there is a vent tube about a couple of inches long to catch any oil and allowing it to run back down into crank. Remember that there is oil sloshing around inside the pump. Examine several brands of compressors for vent and try to recreate that on yours. One thing in common about vents is that they are usually located pretty high up above the crankshaft. You could also try lowering the cut-out pressure on your compressor to reduce back pressure. Good Luck on your repair.

SOURCE: Porter cable pancake unit blows air after shut off.

tap on the check valve with a metal object. Its sticking open. The check valve is the brass fitting on top of the tank. When the valve sticks open it emits air from the area of the engine. If that doesn't work (which I would be surprised it doesn't), you'll need to purchase a new check valve. Good Luck!

SOURCE: My porter cable air compressor

The airr pressure cut off switch is not working or out of alignment. What you can do is to adjust the spring with the air pressure reading at your required pressure. Once this is done allow the air to flow so that the compressor will work again to cur off, you will have to trim once again to set it to the correct condition. If the spring assembly is not working well on pressure you can remove and reset. If the contact are dirty , the switch on may not start the compressor, in such case clean the contacts. But if you think that it is not acting responsive, the please replace the unit and do the settting as explained above.
I hope you try this out. Good day

My Porter Cable pancake outlet regulator doesn't seem to work.


If your quick coupler is not jammed up, (remove & test) and assuming you are pulling the regulator knob out to adjust the pressure and it is not stripped, you will need a new manifold kit.
There are about 6 versions of this unit so you will need model and type to get the correct part. There are no individual regulator parts available for this unit.

Why does the safety valve go off before the pressure switch on a porter cable 80 gal air compressor


The maximum pressure on most small compressors is 10 bar or 1000kpa which is about 145 psi in the old language most safety valves are set to 150 psi. I suggest you get some one to reduce the pressure switch setting. Running a compressor at elevated pressures does not give you any more air. A reasonable pressure for small compressors is 120 psi

Does not auto turn off


Sounds like the pressure switch is shorted together. Unwire the switch and see if it shuts off.
