Question about Clarke Air Tools & Compressors
Did you drained water and sludge from the tank and oiler?
did you check oil level and changed it?
do your pressure sensor react to the pressure?
these are the items to check - as you did not bother to inform us what model - only general advice can be given... for future references - give us a better chance and provide manufacturer, model, year and in computers operating system as well...

if you are talking about the brass valve with a small pin in the middle.it leaks untill the pressure get to 15-25 lbs then the pin pops out and stops leaking and the compressor pumps to pressure. this is normal that valve it a cold start valve that allows the compressor to start with out binding

usally there is a releaf valve that takes the pressure off the compressor while it is resting. If that pressure is not off when the drive piston starts the motor will overload and blow the the breaker or reset. Check for a releaf valve for when the unit has reached full pressure

The motor itself should have a sticker which describes the wiring for 115. It is a small change involving a single wire moving from one pole to another inside the motor starter cap (the bump on the motor itself).

I also have a Clarke SHHH 2/9 with the same problem. I sent it off to machine mart service dept. in Nottingham who quoted £189 to replace a faulty pump. Am not going ahead with repair since replacement cost is only £250. Cost sending to Nottingham (from local machine mart) & cost of estimate & cost of return (to local machine mart) was £24 which I thought was reasonable. Very unimpressed with compressor itself wich failed after only light use.

the start capacitor on the motor body is weak,the motor needs this component to over come the air pressure when cycling to re-build the low air pressure,change both the start and run capacitors when doing the start because the other run capacitor is just as old and it will soon fail
