Remove the air from the compressor using the drain valve.
Remove the discharge hose. The one that goes from the pump to the tank.
Remove the air filter (and check condition)
switch the compressor on an with your hand, partially cover the air intake where the air filter bolts on(be carfull not to fully cover it).
You should feel the pump drawing air in.
If it dosn't draw you have a broken/leaking valve or a blown cross-over gasket if it is of the type with a split valve plate.
You'd need to remove the head/valves/plate to confirm this.

If it did draw in air,
Stop the compressor & re-fit the discharge hose.
Now run for a few seconds and check the draw again.
If its suction reduces you also have a valve/plate/cross-over gasket problem.

If it draws fine.

stop the compressor and loosen the discharge hose at the tank end.
You may hear a short air leak at first, but you should not hear air contniously leaking.
If it continiously leaks air then the check valve in the tank is shot.
NOTE: NEVER remove this valve if the compressor has air in the tank/receiver.
This should locate your problem for you.
Regards

Pressure not building in 1800 broaster


In order to build pressure, you need to first make sure that you have enough product to generate enough steam to build pressure. In a Model 1800 you need about 5-6 pieces of chicken or the equivalent to build a sufficient amount of pressure. You also have to have enough heat to create the steam, so check the oil temperature with a thermometer to make sure the actual temperature of the oil is close to the set temperature. If you have enough product at the proper temperature but no pressure is being generated, you need to determine where the steam is escaping. If the steam is escaping around the cover, replace the cover o-ring. If the steam is escaping from the exhaust stack in the back right corner of the unit, then your pressure regulating valve needs to be cleaned or rebuilt. The pressure regulating valve is mounted to the front of the cooking well just below the countertop. If the unit is several years old you should go ahead and get the rebuild kit for it.

Air pressure only builds up to 45 lbs. compressor continues to run. I drained all the air and it still only builds up to 45 lbs.


The check valve is not holding the pressure back off the head,therefore allowing the pressure to build up fully.

Will only build pressure to 100psi of rated 140psi


Chances are that the pressure switch, were you turn the compressor on and off, is bad. When they go out, they no longer build pressure to the regulated level you are looking for. If you haven't already, try turning up the regulator, if no more than 100psi build's, then it's a sure thing, bad pressure switch.

Vent Pipe Question


In the majority of buildings, yes - it depends on the type of building and the building regulations. The purpose of the open vent pipe is to relieve any positive pressure in the drainage system. In buildings up to ten storeys high, one open vent is recommended to relieve the constant positive pressure build-up that can occur if the main sewer is blocked for some time. In higher buildings the positive pressure generated is in transient form, so each stack would need an open vent.
