Question about Campbell Hausfeld 26 - Gallon Air Compressor

1 Answer

Should I upgrade my pressure regulation on my hausfeld 26 gallon

Looks like the regulation is shot. It wont shut off by switch and it stays on till the overpressure blows. I have always been unhappy with the compressor because it didn't have enough volume to run a lug wrench. Should I look into getting a bigger bore pressure switch?


Thanks!

Remove the pressure switch and look for oil inside it, where it senses air pressure. Also may just be burn't contacts. Clean them with Wet&Dry paper.

Your compressor is TOO Small on the CFM side to power high volume air tools, like a cut off wheel,air chisel or your impact gun ,if you use it too long.

It's not tank volume,it is the compressors ability to make air quicker than you use it, and at a steady 100# or more,none stop.
The only real fix is a very large single stage unit or the best is a two stage. Those two options are expensive.

I have a campbell hausefield vs series air comp and when it reaches full air supply and shuts off air leaks (alot) out of the switch i replaced and nothing changes.


There is a check valve on the tank where the line from the pump goes to. It should also have a smaller line running to the pressure switch. If the valve or spring inside is broke or stuck it will leak as you describe. You need Campbell Hausfeld part number CV221502AJ.

Possibly the pressure switch needs to be adjusted to reach a higher pressure. Trace the power cord into a box that also is piped into the pressure line from the compressor. If the pressure works itself back down again, use thread-locker fluid on the adjustment screw to hold it's setting.

25 gallon air compressor wont shut off,changed air regulator


You have a valve plate problem . It could be a slipped "o" ring to a bad reed valve. There are rebuild kits for that purpose. The kits include a valve plate assembly. It covers all the bases. When you look at this area pay attention to the partitions of the head gasket/"o"ring. You may avoid the cost of the kit.

Adjust PSI


The compressor does not get over 40 psi. It simply does not pump over that.
