Sears craftsman air compressor model 919.153160 will pump to 150psi but is leaking when it is pumping it will shut off at 150psi but then struggles to restart (tries several times before it does start).

Loosing line a little bit going into tank and see it the pressure continues to come out if so, you might want to consider replacing the check valve. It is designed to keep the pressures in the tank and when they leak off it causes back pressure on the motor making it hard to restart...hope that helps.

25 gallon up right speedway series aircompressor leaks air out at pressure switch

This is usually indicative of a broken tank check valve. It's a valve on the pressure line from the pump to the tank. It let's air into the tank then closes so the pressure switch can bleed the air out of the pressure line and head through a plastic or copper line so the motor can restart when the pressure drops. Rarely you can remove the valve and clean the seat and valve but more often than not it has to be replaced.

I have a air compressure with a square d 9013fhg44mix pressure switch. The problem is where the 1/4 air line goes, this valve leaks when ever the compressor is off. Once the compress is on it is off and...

The 1/4" line is very necessary and there are no adjustments on it. When the tank reaches full the pressure switch turns off the power and opens the valve to the 1/4" line to bleed off pressure from the air pump and feed tube so the motor can turn over the next time the tank drops to the kick in pressure. Every time the pressure switch turns the motor off a small amount of air should be heard coming out of the bottom of the switch for three to five seconds and then it should stop completely. If air continues to leak out of the switch by the 1/4" line, you have a bad tank check valve. The tank check valve is the brass fitting at the other end of the 1/4" line where the feed tube from the air pump goes into the tank. It keeps air in the tank after the pressure switch turns off the motor. Easy to replace, find the one you need for your model compressor.

I own an old Culligan RO system with a particulate filter, carbon filter, RO filter and post carbon filter all connected by tubes in an open environment. Replaced filters and tank is only 3-4 years old...

It is quite common to loose air pressure in the RO over time. At times the tank will be full of water but will not have enough air pressure to push water out. Take the tank of drain as much water as possible, for 3 gallon tank bring pressure in tank to 7psi, for 10 gallon tank pressure should be 10psi.

I changed the filters, put each in properly, turned the water on and I have water in the tank but no water coming out of the spout. What should I do?

There is no air pressure in storage tank. Take the supply line off the tank, pump air into the tank until all the water is out. Then let out enough air until there is 7lbs of air left. This is bladder tank and they loose air pressure after a while. Hook it back up to RO and you are good to go.

The preassure only gets to about 50lbs. on my 2 Hp 4 Gal. compressor and the motor just keeps running. Is my compressor going bad or is this something that is fixable?

Hi, my name is John. Welcome to FixYa. You are loosing pressure somewhere. Check for air leaks in the lines, check the line coming from the pump to the tank, check the drain valve at the bottom of tank. Thanks for choosing FixYa....John

Leak at one of the fittings on my Culligan RO system

Too much pressure in holding tank will not cause leaks in the RO unit. All too much pressure in tank will do is cause low or no product water in RO tank. Older Culligan RO systems (H8, H83, H5) had fittings that used metal locking washers and these can cut the RO line after the RO has been moved around while changing filters. Newer styles (AC30, Water Tower) use quick connect fittings and the RO line may work loose after filter changes and system being moved around under sink.
Turn the incoming water off to RO, turn the water off on RO tank, open the RO faucet to relieve pressure and pull the line off feeding the RO tank, inspect (you may want to cut off a small portion of the line at the filter) check the o-ring and re-install.

Ingersoll Rand Air compressor loosing pressure

sounds like you have a problem with the discharge valve on the secondary cylinder, some I.R. pumps rely on the cylinder head valves to hold back tank pressure when the pump comes to a stop. the line down to the crankcase in front of the crank is a unloader valve that dumps the air pressure inside the pump to allow the next restart. I think that once you drain the tank and remove that cylinder head you will find a defective valve in the head.

Air compressor line

Three basic methods:
1.Run power to the garage and reclocate the compressor there.
2.Use 3/4" steel or copper pipe run under ground to move the air without loosing as much pressure.
**3. Keep doing what you are doing but...add a portable air tank at the end of the line. I would suggest 11 gallon and add a large diameter 1/2" or 3/4" ID hose that is only 12 feet off of that to reduce the loss of pressure. I even ran a 100 pound propane construction size tank (after cleaning it and refitting it with large diameter pipe) Use a "cross" piple to get air into and out of the tank. Just remove whatever the portable tank has on it and create your own setup. This really works well.
