SOURCE: air compressor not working

If your motor is running and not the pump, the malfunction is either in the pump or the coupling between the motor and the pump.

Some of these compressors are manufactured so cheap now that there can be just a set screw that is loose and the motor shaft is spinning free inside of the crankshaft.

If you drain the oil out of the pump and take off the pump crankcase cover, you should be able to see the problem.

SOURCE: Campbell Hausfeld Air Compressor won't start

The compressor starting problem is common to most of the small portable compressors. Poor design and undersized components are to blame. If you have one of these units i suggest looking into a product called the Smart Start by Conrader Valves. It is interchangeable with the standard air filters and allows the compressor to start without fail. check it out-

My 5 hp campbell hausfeld model hl 7017 pumps up to pressure but when it drops the motor starts but the compressor wont turn the belt just slips until pressure drops off to about 30 psi

Your tank check valve is not closing properly. It's a valve on the tank where the air line from the pump head attaches, It allows air in but not back out of the tank through the pump. When the pressure swtich turns the motor off, valve on the pressure switch lets the air out of the head so the motor can restart without any pressure in the pump head when the pressure in the tank drops. On rare occasion, you can clean the check valve out and it'll work again, more often than not you have to replace it.

My craftsman 1.5hp 20gallon comperssor starts fine with an empty tank, and will fill the tank, but will throw the built in breaker when it needs more pressure.

Your tank valve is stuck open. The valve is on tank where the tube from the air pump goes into the tank. It allows air into the tank but not back out the same way. When the pump stops you hear a short burst of air leaking out that releases the pressure on the piston in the cylinder. If the tank valve sticks open, the pressure in the cylinders is more than the motor can overcome to restart and the breaker pops open so the motor won't burn itself up. The valves are relatively easy to get and easier to replace.

I have had sad service with Campbell Hausfeld. You can go to their website, type in the model number, then ask for recalls on that model. My guess is there is no recall.

If not, you might consider buying a replacement compressor motor to mount on that tank.. The tank is too good to throw away. Try
