Below is a link for parts to a Coleman compressor model #VPP0200604. Not positive but I think that is what you have.

However before you buy anything how do you know what the problem is? Is the motor running? If the problem is that it's just worn out you may find it difficult to get parts for rebuilding it. What you have is whats commonly referred to as a throw away pump. The second link show the pumps replacement cost, around $85.00. If you do manage to get rebuild parts for it they will cost at least that much.
You can get a Senco at Home Depot which is a couple grades up from yours for around $125.00.

Your compressor is really not worth the effort to rebuild it.

If on the other hand your compressors motor is not starting up please include any details in a response to this and I'll try and troubleshoot it for you.
Hope this helps.

My air compressors filled up with air and shut off when the air got below a certain psi and did not kick back in to fill the tank can you help me.

Pressure problems can be several pressureline leaks

If an air pressure switch (pressostat) does not return replace the pressure switch a gray colored or white or black colored box with the powercables comin to and the power knob on it red black gay or other color. that is the problem itself in this case . the mechanic jumped not up it hangs , best is to replace the complete part.

If the compressor filling the tank and when its reached the pressure and it blow from out the safety valve then the pressostat its too high adjusted. there is a max pressure on the valve to read is it blow off below the max replace the safety valve.

Is your pressure is build up but it blow out the Pressure relief nipple its a part of the pressostat in most case , the your Non-return valve on the tank is dirty or by dirtable metal parts from the pressure line membrane parts .

How can i fix my ec12 hitachi electric air compressor

This problem is caused by either the starter capacitor or the in-tank check valve. Ez to check. With no air in tank, start compressor; if motor hums or has difficulty suspect capacitor. If motor starts, partially fill tank and unplug the power. Check for air leaking at the pressure switch or air coming out of the air inlet (remove the air filter). If air leaking, replace check valve. If no air leaking, again let out all the from the tank and connect power. Allow the compressor to fill and shut-off. After the compressor fills, again listen for air leaking from the pressure switch unloader valve. If air continues to leak from unloader, replace the check valve. Good luck

I also have air coming out of my oil fill cap vent. How do you know if the valve plates are frozen, should they be reassembled with a lite coat of oil or assembled dry?

if you go to sears parts you should be able to see a parts diagram and see if all the parts of the pump are as they should be from what i know there is a piston that moves up and down there are two sides to the pump head the top piece and the muffler with the filter lets air in the other side has the flex hose it isn't to complicated to take apart make sure parts are in the right order on diagram . i think the parts can be dry oil isn't going to hurt any thing though just make sure you don't have to much in the fill tube the bottom of that tube should only cover the little gear in the see-through port half way any more than that and oil and air will come out that tube

Hi...I currently own Bugaboo Cameleon, which has the air filled wheels. I would really like to purchase foam wheels since it eliminates the part of filling air filled wheels. I would love to purchase...

Yes they do. I've never had a problem with the air filled tires for two reasons. I threw away that plastic joke of an air pump and filled the tires at the local garage to 2 bar / 30 psi not the silly 1 bar / 15 psi Bugaboo recommend. 15 psi is to soft and makes punctures far more likely.

Sorry, it is working well! Part of an air conditioner's job is to remove excess humidity from the air. This is what is filling up the bucket.

It will fill with water but will not wash

Check the fill sensor. IT is at the end of the tube that goes from the bottom of the tub to the top part. Inspect the air filled hose if there are leaks. At the top part is the fill sensor. Have it checked if it is running or may have been disconnected.

Dewalt compressor not filling with air drained tank closed valve

Some dewalt air compressors with single cylinder are known to develop trouble with reed valves and /or failed gaskets in head. Parts lists and parts are available at Simple test is to remove air filter and check for suction at intake. Bad reeds will tend to blow air out intake as pressure increases. Failed gaskets in head will cause very high temp at discharge hose. Parts are not too expensive. Enjoy
