My air compressor can pump air in but when it get

Hi I have a campbell hausfeld 26gallon 125psi.

my air compressor can pump air in but when it get full at 120 psi it shuts off.

when I use the air and when in use it works fine. when the psi goes down to 80psi it kicks and it try's to pump air in the compressor but its struggles and seems to over heat or somethings and dies, it seems to be a breaker built in, it clicks and when it cools down for a couple of min it clicks back and it try's to pump again in it but still struggles. if I want to get it pump to 120 psi again I would have to use up all the air to about 15psi for it to pump again. what should I do or what is the problem? please help

When it reaches 120 psi it will cut out usually will cut back in at around 70- 80 psi if it struggles to restart at cut in pressure it may not be bleeding the head pressure om your compressor . this is done by the pressure switch which when shuts off releases a small squirt of air under it . to solve this problem you may need new switch . there is also the non return valve to check

Pressure switch shut-off set too high.


It is adjustable. Remove the square cover nut and adjust the spring tension. . It would be best to lower to 110-115 psi. The compression rings will thank you for it..

I have a 6HP 26gallon CH Model VT627102 compressor. The pump shaft seems to be bent. Is there anyway to replace the shaft or am I better off replacing the entire pump? Also, can I put a larger pump...


Hi gary sr...

You already know the answer sir...
You will be better of replacing the compressor its self...don't buy a total new machine, you could save yourself a few bucks by just replacing the compressor unit.
Go to http://www.harborfreight.com/ and take a look at a replacement compressor unit, and then compare the price to a new compressor assembly...
I am sure you will buy the just compressor.

Compressor runs but will not air up pass 10 psi


sounds like something has compromised the piston or rings. would advise you remove the cylinder head and inspect cylinder and bore, think you will no doubt find something broken.

Gas air compressor shuts down


IS IT BUILDING TO THE UNLOAD PRESSURE AND THEN STALLING OR JUST SHUTTING DOWN ANYTIME. IS THE UNIT SITTING AT AN ANGLE?

DOES IT WORK FINE WITH THE LOW OIL SWITCH UNPLUGGED? UNPLUG SWITCH AND LEAVE IT UNPLUGGED FOREVER.THEY'RE ALL P.O.S.

No air pressure past 60PSI on a 125PSI Campbell Hausfield WL61110


Your comperssor is oilless type and suffers from short cylinder / piston life. When the compressor no longer reaches cycle pressure the cylinder / piston should be replaced. These parts are available at www.chpower.com I believe that the part number is wl210300aj. Not expensive, enjoy.
