Most people recommend replacing the motor capacitor in this situation, since a faulty cap will reduce the starting torque. But in my case the check valve was the culprit - there was too much back pressure on the head.

I have a model# 919166442 air compressor that all at once quit building air pressure. when it gets to 40psi the engine keeps running but air pressure wont rise


There is a check valve that has gone bad,this allows air into the tank,and does not allow the air to go back toward the compressors head.This can also cause the compressor to lock up.

There is a black tube coming out of the check Where does it go?


This line should go to the unloader valve on the pressure switch, and is used to vent the head pressure when the compressor shuts off. When attached to the pressure switch, it will be sealed off until the compressor pumps up and shuts off, then it will bleed off briefly so that the motor starts easier the next time it starts.

You need to find an amp probe from someone and use it to monitor the amps as the compressor is building up pressure. If the amps start increasing dramatically as it nears the stall point it would seem that you have a seizing problem or electrical motor problem.

Air Compressor, low pressure


does the compressor keep running all the time but never gets above 40 or does it turn off at 40?
if it is turning off at 40 I would try using another gauge just to be sure it is 40psi, and if that is the case then you probably have a faulty pressure switch, if the compressor is constantly runnign but won't get past the 40psi then you may have a worn out compressor, check the oil for either a low level or if the oil is dirty, if it is you may just need to drain and refill but if that doesn't fix the issue then you will need to rebuild the compressor
