Most likely a start run capacitor has failed
do not remove any pins of a plug as they are all need for electricity
if the capacitor replacement makes no difference , get in an electrician to test the machine and insulation

Can I use another Central Pneumatic pump on my 61490 air compressor?


sure harbor freight tools sells new air compressor pumps, just be sure new one matches the R.P.M of the motor or I may damage it if it turns too fast of may not make enough air if it goes to slow , also be aware if belt pulley changes its diameter then pump speed will also change

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

Blows fuses, will not run. not used much, 2 years old


Wild guess rust Does it have a tank? does it have a condensate drain? Are you sure the starting condenser is ok? It sounds almost as if the piston is frozen. Sometimes this kind of thing happens to Airconditioning compressors. You might try a "slow blow fuse" and increase fuse capacity. There is a "hard start" kit which is an extra starting electrical condenser so if none of the above helps and no warranty and mine I'd spray a tiny bit of wd-40 into the intake let it sit overnight. try again.

Air compressor will not start.


When you are texturing walls you need a texture machine, they work very differently from an air compressor. An air compressor, especially one as small as the Central Pneumatic 40400 cannot supply the constant flow of air required by texture guns. If your compressor was running long enough to get hot enough to smell it then stopped working some of the possibilities are:
- Popped a circuit breaker, either the house breaker for the outlet you were using or the breaker on the compressor motor. This usually occurs because the compressor is being run on a too small guage or too long extension cord or run constantly for an extended period.
- Motor got overheated and seized up or shorted out. This could be as simple as a bearing seizing or as bad as the coils in the arnature shorted out.
- Pump may have seized up. Even if the sight glass shows the crankcase is full, the condition of the oil and its ability to lubricate are greatly affected if it is overheated.

One day I was useing A central Pneumatic Pancake #38898 Compressor. The next day it would not Run.


probably the switch assembly. check the red pull up switch . It may have melted at the hot line coming in causing a break in connection and break in power. This is most common when the compressor runs for extended periods of time without rest. Lots of luck.

Bostitch compressor won't start


it has a reset button somewhere and usually a fuse. take the cover off (unplugged) and look for a red reset button or a fuse. if it keeps blowing the fuse or tripping the reset then it will likely need service by a service center.

Can't find repair parts for a central pneumatic air compressor.


Eric,<br /> <br /> I just bought a Central Pneumatic air compressor from Harbor Freight and fortunately I have the manual and the contact number for you to call for parts 1-800-444-3353. This number and your model and serial number of your tools should get you what you need. Hope this helps<!-- from fixya rte -->
