I have a brand new 60 gal.230 volt compressor.It runs up to pressure then bleeds out of the bleed off until the compressor restarts,at that point the bleed off stops until it reaches pressure again.I have installed a new switch and have the same problem.

OK if you have a bad bleed valve you can replace it buy a new one than is just the same.
or you can go tho the hardware store and add an 1/4" inch 90 degree elbow and a quick shut of valve.
in that way will be easy for you to bleed the compressor and will be leak proof. that is now i have it on my compressor.
now check your hoses for leaks to.

Compressor runs fills tank but then it wont keep the pressure, won't restart to keep pressure above requested pressure. I have to let it seat for 1/2 hour to restart again


Most likely problem is the tank fill check valve. The most common way a a tank will loose pressure is by leak-back at the check valve. This also makes it hard to start because it leaves the tank pressure on the pump head instead of letting it bleed off. The motor will only restart after the tank pressure is bleed off to a low level, reducing the back pressure the motor will have to overcome. Leaking can be heard at the pressure switch, where the air is normally bleeds off over 10 seconds or so after the motor turns off. A defective check valve will continuously leak down at the pressure switch unloader valve instead of bleeding out in just 10 seconds. The check valve is an assembly that is largely hidden inside the tank. It just looks like a large hex nut where the filler tube from the pump enters the tank. Removal usually means first removing a smaller hex/barb/connector where the smaller relief line ties into the big nut. Inspection of the check valve will easily reveal whether this is the problem.

The compressor air supply line from comp. to storage tank has a tee at the tank with a brass pluss in it with a tiny pin hole and that is allow air to be expelled. Is this a safety plug or can it be...


no, do not block with a solid plug. This allows air to bleed off the compressor so it will restart when pressure switch makes. If air continually bleeds out of this hole i would check the tank check valve . It is bad or has trash or something keeping it from closing. If check valve is bad it will allow air from the tank to bleed down until compressor starts or no air left in tank if shut down

I R Ts4 5hp 80 gal 175 psi 230 volt Air leaking from near pressure switch. Replaced switch but still leaking near 1/4 tubing. Thanks


You have a receiver tank check valve leaking. If you loosen the 1/4 tube slightly and air blows out more and will not stop replace the tank check valve. If you follow the copper line for the compressor HP head back to the tank you will see that the line screws into the check valveand the check valve screws into the tank. Bleed all air from the tank,remove the 1/4 line and the 3/4 line from the check valve. Then unscrew the check valve. Install a new check valve and connect the lines. Problem solved.

replace your tank check valve..the noise you are hearing is coming from a bleeder valve that's bleeding air pressure from the head so when it starts its not starting up against pressure

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.

Portable oiless compressor wont pressurize


If there is pressure at the pump, either:

1) The tank check valve isn't opening (it's located where the line from the head enters the tank - usually extends into the tank, and the the pressure switch unloader line comes off of it as well)
2) The pressure switch unloader is bleeding off the air. This is a small valve on the side of the pressure switch. It should close when the compressor is running and open when the compressor shuts off to bleed off head pressure.

Compressor not building pressure and continues to run


Unplug it and listen for air leak. What pressure does the manual tell you it should run to? The safety release could be bleeding air, listen for that, with it off. Make sure it is designed for more than 60 PSI by manufacture.

Dewalt 4 gal air compressor will not build pressure in take.


The bleed valve is an unloader of sorts that allows the compressor to start with-out a load. It closes when the pressure in the airline reaches about 20-25lbs with good volume. If air volume is not sufficient, the valve will not close. To solve the problem lets do a few tests. A long cord will reduce power and reduce air volume. Try powering the compressor with-out extension cord. If bleed valve closes when you do not use a cord, the compressor is not getting enough voltage, use shorter cord of the 12 gauge quality and more hose to reach work. If valve still does not close, check for air leaks on all fittings including around pressure switch and drain valve with soapy water. Repair as necessary and retest. If no leaks were found, temporarily plug bleed valve port with screw/bolt and run compressor till set pressure cut-off while counting minuites/seconds. The compressor should fill and shut off within three minutes or so. If it takes an unusually long time to fill, then the reed valves /valve plate is worn and leaking pressure back into cylinger. Leaking valves will usually result in very hot discharge airline/air. Reinstall the bleed valve after test. Parts and partslist are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com . Good luck on the repair and email if you have other questions.
