Question about Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

I have a 4 gallon 2 hp. central pneumatic pancake compressor, it builds 80# OF pressure and continues to run never getting any higher, Iv'e had piston out and it and rings seem ok, I assume check valve is the tee fitting that has plastic disk and spring in it, as my print does't show it, not sure where to begin.

I have a Central Pneumatic 38898 pancake compressor that will not shut off when the pressure reaches pre-set PSI. I have replaced the pressure switch but to no avail...HELP!!


There must be a blockage on the fitting where the pressure switch goes in that stops the air pressure from reaching the regulator. Try taking the switch off and turn the compressor on and see if air comes out the hole

Why will my bostitch pancake compressor 240 psi tank 180 regulator that the guages will not show building pressure


Hi, There are different posibilities. I would need more information. Was it always like that? Does the guage on the main tank and the guage on the regulator both not show more than 20psi? When the auto shut-off is triggered do you feel there is more than 20 psi in the tank?

I have a cap2060 Bostitch pancake. When pressure builds to 125psi the pressure switch blows open and starts to release air. I replaced the switch and the same thing is happening. Is there a way to adjust...


A little suggestion as most compressors are build up similar in the same way if your Pressure relief valve (unloader valve) will start continues blow off until all pressure is lost , it has nothing to do with the pressostat switch in most case there is a problem with the checkvalve on the tank sometimes there are metal little oxidized parts coming out from the cilinder like the pressure hose connections Oxidized couplings or membrane you can open and inspect the spring and rubber valve iside the checkvalve clean it from corrosion and metal parts.

I have a Stanley Bostitch CAP2000P-OF Air Compressor. It runs constantly and won't reach the shutoff pressure. It will build some pressure. When I turn it off, I dont hear any leaks.


Jim:
There is a leak somewhere... Use a soapy solution at the air tube from the compressor head to the tank (both ends) and at all air hose connections. The bubbles will tell you where the leak is and you can repair the connections from there...

I have a 21 gallon 4hp peak motor Central Pneumatic oil lubricated Model 47065 air compressor and it will not go to over 20 psi and it will just keep running


Possible that there is leak on the system or the piston/rings/cylinder has worn out.Also check for oil within the unit. Check the compression of the cycle and if this is too low it means that there is wear and tear and will require a overhauling and reset.

Runs but will not build or hold pressure


You need a qualified technician for the suction system need to be check and replaced if needed. There might some air leaks in the suction system. Thanks for asking FixYa.
