If you are talking of the clamshell cover, MANY plastic covers big and small have a few screws and then have molded "rods" on one side and a mating hole in a boss on the other. For these, one has to CAREFULLY pry them apart EVENLY so all seperate evenly..

Can the pressure switch on a Bostitch pancake compressor model cap2000p-of be adjusted so the compressor will come on and shut off at a different pressure than what was set a the factory?


NO unfortunate There is a electric pressure stop on this model !! not an adjustable pressostat (presure switch) pos 21 is the electric stop at maybe 8 or 10 bar
the savety valve is pos 22 (there is mostly a maximum pressure notition on to read) there is nothing to adjust on this type compressor what is made for a group a (Stanley-Bostitch-Dewalt) patented this pump is placed in several types of compressors of this brands.

I have a Stanley Bostitch CAP2000P-OF Air Compressor. It runs constantly and won't reach the shutoff pressure. It will build some pressure. When I turn it off, I dont hear any leaks.


Jim:
There is a leak somewhere... Use a soapy solution at the air tube from the compressor head to the tank (both ends) and at all air hose connections. The bubbles will tell you where the leak is and you can repair the connections from there...

I have a Stanley Bostitch Oil Free Air Compressor 6.0 Gal 2.0 Hp Peak, 1.5 Hp Running 135 Psi The problem is it won't blow out air or hold the air.. How can I fix this?


Some Bostitch compessors are very unique in that they intake air from below the piston. If you cannot find an air filter, then your compessor has reed valve built into the piston that may cause problems. If you have an air filter on the head of the pump, then you have reed valves in the head. When the reed valves fail, there will be very little or no air pressure. Second problem with all compressors is the in-tank check valve. This valve allows air to enter the tank and not back-out into the compressor. Easy to check. Add air into tank with another compressor thru the quick connect and listen for air leaking around the head or pressure switch. If no leaks and pressure holds in the tank then valve ok. Examine the condition of the cylinder and piston ring by rotating the crank by hand so that the piston is at top of cylinder. Look for scratches around upper part of cylinder wall. If scratches, then replace cylinder and piston ring. If top of cylinder looks good, then suspect reed valves. Good luck

Check the position of the switches and selectors. It sounds like you are in between settings. Also, put in a few drops of oil, and try your gun out on scrap wood, so oil doesn't come out on your good work.

Something is wrong with your "unloader" I should think. That is the device that removes the pressure from the cylinder so the machine does not have to start up against its full air pressure
There will be a narrow air pipe connecting the compressor to the switch assembly which bleeds off the air when the power is off. That hiss you get when you turn it off or it turns itself off.
I think you will find a leak there or possibly the non return valve that stops all the air escaping when the unloader valve is open has failed or got a foreign body stuck in its seating.

Mine had the same problem.
One of the reed valves in the head had broken off due to metal fatigue. Take off black plastic housing with 5 screws along the bottom and one bolt under the handle (the front only). Unscrew the four allen headed screws on top of the compressor. Unscrew the discharge line from the head. You'll need part # AB-A640050 which is the valve plate assy. and possibly AB-9007012 which is the intake valve located in the top of the piston (if damaged). About $18 including shipping from Bostitch.
