Ac2000b motor runs but builds no pressure in tank

Your compressor is worn out. It is repairable but you will quickly find out that the price of the rebuild kit and S+H is about the price of a new compressor at your local store.

Oil-less compressors cannot stand up to use and abuse they get like a oil compressor can but they are certainly affordable.

Thanks for your question @

My Clarke AC2001 4 Gal. compressor hums when power button is up. Compressor will not start up! Why?

one of a few things possible, first is that the start capacitor is faulty, second could be the start switch inside the motor, and the third that the pump is not unloaded ( if only happens when the tank has air in it) or the pump and or motor is locked up.

Oil type for air compressor

You can go to any Home Depot and buy compressor oil for your compressor. Your operators manual should tell you what the level should be, however if you don't have one, filling it with oil until it fills the glass tube about half way should be sufficient.

Oil covering pancake and pressure adjustments

Typically on the inside cover of the electical box it will illustrate the cut-in/cut-out controls. There should also be a fill port above the pump end of the compressor. Do you have a sight glass on the side of the compressor *(around the area of the leaking oil) usually if its coming out its due to overfilling or tipping over of the compressor.

Oil problem

All reciprocating compressors have a series of pistons that pump up and down inside their individual cylinders to compress the air to a higher pressure. This rubbing creates friction, which creates heat. In order to conserve the life of the pump, you need some type of protection. Some pumps are “splash” lubricated with oil and some have a teflon-type lining in the cylinder. Oil-less compressors are adequate for lighter use applications and have the advantage of being able to run off-level without worry, however even though they are considered low-maintenance, they tend to wear much quicker due to more heat build-up and repair costs could be extensive. Oil-lubricated compressors have the advantage of keeping the pump running cooler and lasting much longer and are built for the professional who takes pride in ownership and will maintain his equipment. However the key is to make sure the compressor sits level so the “splash”-lubrication is effective and reaches all cylinders. If run off-level, it can score the cylinder and do heavy damage over a short period of time. It is very difficult to claim warranty for the owner in this case.
