You more than likely have a damaged compression ring. This is the ring that goes on the piston. Check to see if the cylinder is scarred also if the ring is bad. You should replace both the compression ring and the cylinder. Check with your Dewalt service center to see if you can puchase an assembly that has both. Also check your valve plate and make sure the fingers are ok. Sometimes a broken finger will give you the same result.

Porter cable 3hp air compressor 130 psi no model number visible compressor runs builds up pressure and kicks off when the pressure is builded up in the tank// the compressor will not kick kick back on when...


Hi,
Check to see if the switch will kick in if the pressure is released from the hose going to activate it...if so then the problem is the air being trapped between a check valve and the switch in the hose...
I think that is your problem...
There should be a way for the air pressure to change and represent the tank air pressure accurately....
The different compressors all have different ways of checking the air and then allowing it to release as the the tank pressure decreases..

There is a small hole there somewhere that is clogged with dirt and or oil...find that and clean it and you are in business again...

I have a porter cale C5101 compressor. It hesitate to auto start when the pressure is low, always trip my circuit breaker.


What amp breaker do you have this hooked to. I would use no less than 15 amp ,preferrably a 20 amp. Next do you drain tank after use on a regular basis. If you don't moisture can build up inside tank and cause hard starting on automatic. If you need to drain tank there should be a drain valve on bottom of tank. try turning it counterclocwise with compressor off. If it dosen't turn that way try clockwise,air and moisture should drain. If you have alot of water in tank then shut valve and turn compressor on and bring to full pressure,then repeat draining procedure until no more water comes out. Hope this helps. Thank you

Air won't come out of tank


does the guage show that it is building pressure? if not then the compressor is not working and its not pressurinsing the tank, if it is storing pressure and the compressor is working check the valve on the connector and that its depressing and releasing the air.

Air Leak From Pump Head on Porter Cable C2001 Pancake Compressor


The real question is where exactly is the leak coming from. Compressors have a pressure release valve designed to let the pressure off of the compressor motor so it can start when there is pressure in the tank. This valve is often the culprit and fairly easy to replace. You can order it direct from porter-cable online. Just in case double check the drain petcock sometimes these get worn and won't close completely and can easily be over looked when trouble shooting.

Porter cable model 2005 type 3 wont build pressure


The check valve is most likely the problem,or the compressor is bad.The check valve actually holds the air in the tank,without allowing the air to retreat backwards into the compressor.

Drain valve in Porter Cable air compressor


this valve works backwards, you screw it out to stop airflow. If that doesn't work, replace the valve.
