Question about Air Tools & Compressors
Posted by Anonymous on
The air ratchet needs to come apart. Better done by a professional tool repairer who knows what to look for. Problems could be any of the following: 1)you have put air tool oil in the gear head instead of light grease. 2)The gear head likely has worn out flat spotted ball bearings and there are two of them. If this is the case they will also have gouged the face of the washer the bearings run on. 3)you may have twisted the gear head yoke by pulling improperly which spreads the yoke too wide where the bearings and gears are located. 4) A gear may have broken in the head or perhaps other parts. 5) there are three small gears inside where the yoke joins the handle which may have broken. A repair kit is most likely needed.

A seized bearing, broken rotor blade (vane), or rust/dirt in the motor can cause this.

under the lever you push to make it operate you will se a pin .if this pin is stuck down the ratchet will run all the time.also this could be a bad O ring on this same part,

Most CP ratchets have an oring that seals the trigger valve. You can remove the screw on the top of the trigger and then remove the spring and valve pin. There should be an oring around the bell of this pin. You can probably get away with using any oring that is the same size, and not having to get the exact oring from the manufacturer.

SOURCE: I have a brand new husky 1/2
There could be a couple of things wrong with it. First and foremost make sure your compressor has the correct cfm's to operate the tool. Psi is only half the battle when it comes to air tools. Second, make sure that your reversing switch on the ratchet is properly engaged. Sometimes it will get stuck in the middle. You may have a crimped hose so check the hose. There may have been debris in the line that got into the motor. If this is the case, then you are going to need to have to take it apart to see what is wrong. If you just bought it though you should take it back to Home Depot. I had a customer who basically had the same thing happen. He used the ratchet twice and the valve pin cap just popped off. It is plastic and just broke in two. I tried to look up the part and it is unavailable. Husky is made by Campbell Hausfeld for Home Depot. Sometimes it is not that easy to get parts for certain models. I believe they make a run of tools and then discontinue the line they just made, and do not make parts available. You could try taking it back to Home Depot and swapping it out for a new one. Or my suggestion would be get your money back and by a better brand ratchet like IR or CP.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. I apologize for the much delayed response but I was helping another customer and your post appeared after I answered that post so I am going to respond now.
You will have to determine the part number of your Air drive.
The seals are dried out and cracked. Also the spring for the trigger is probably broken or the plunger is stuck down.
The CP828 parts can be found here:
The parts you probably need are items 3, 5, 7, 30 and 34. Possibly even item 109. That just repairs the trigger. You still need to repair the motor and head. See item 800 of the link for the repair kit. $33.75 Also note what item numbers above are in the kit.
The repair kits can be also located here:
http://www.pneumatictoolsonline.com/HTML%20pages/Tune%20Up%20Kits.htm Notice there are several versions of the CP air motors. I send this link because there are three types of ratchet heads and it lists both the CP828 and CP886 repair parts.
You should be able to breathe life back into this thing with just a repair kit.... and possibly a few other trigger parts.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
