Make sure the tank drain on the bottom of the tank is shut off if there is one.
It should not take more than three or four minutes to fill a small pancake tank.
You hear any hissing noises while the pump is running? If so, there's an air leak, see if you can stop them somehow.
If the above does not answer, return unit for refund or exchange.

I have a Campbell hausfeld air compressor and it turns on and fills up to about 90 psi then turns off and wont turn back on not even to refill the tank if I unplug it for 30 mins it will turn back on whats...


The electric motor probably has an automatic resetting overload. Most likely what is happening is that as the pressure increases so does the load on the motor. When it gets to a certain point the motor overload opens the circuit and the compressor stops and won't restart until it has cooled down and reset itself. The overload is sensitive to both current and temperature; it is inside the motor housing and may look something like this:

The most likely cause of your problem is low voltage due to too small wire or too long of a wire run to the motor. Other things to check are dust and dirt in the motor not letting it cool properly, too much friction in the compressor, restriction in the compressor outlet, bad connections anywhere in the electrical system from the main breaker panel all the way to the motor including the pressure switch at the compressor; worn motor bearings [or compressor bearings].

Ice machince is going max freeze cycle shut down


1. Possible cause. Water leak. Check purge valve, water curtain, sump, sump hose.
2. Air filters clogged. Clean air filters.
3. Dirty condenser. Clean condenser.
4. Restricted location, intake air to hot. Have machine moved.
5. Ice thickness sensor dirty or disconnected. Check ice thickness sensor probe.
6. Water distributor dirty. Remove and clean water distributor.
7. Inlet water valve leaks through during freeze cycle. Check water inlet valve.
8. Connected to hot water. Check for bleed through from missing check valve in building water supply.
9. Incomplete harvest. Check harvest system.
10.High pressure cut out opened. Check fan motor pressure control, check fan motor, check controller using test mode.
11. Fan motor pressure control open. Check fan pressure control.
12. Fan motor not turning. Check fan motor, check fan blade,check controller using test mode.
13.Water pump not pumping. Check pump motor,check controller using test mode.
14. Pump hose disconnected. Check hose.
15. Compressor not operating. check compressor contactor, check controller using test mode.
Check compressor start components, check PTCR resistance and temperature, check compressor voltage, check compressor windings.
16. Low refrigerant charge. Add some refrigerant and restart unit. If cycle time imporves, look for a leak.
17. Hot gas valve leaks through during freeze. Check hot gas valve for hot outlet during freeze.
18. Thermostatic expansion valve bulb loose. Check bulb.
19. Thermostatic expansion valve producing very low or high superheat. Check evaporator superheat, Change TXV if incorrect.
20. Compressor inefficent. Check compressor amp draw, if low and all else is correcy, change compressor.

You did not list model number, however if you have oilless type check the cylinder/piston by manually turning crank until piston is at top and examine cylinder for wear or scratches. If worn replace cylinder kit for full pressure. If ok check reed valves /valve plate for wear or broken reeds. If oil bath type, problem is usually air leak or reed valves / valve plate. As a general rule, you can keep track of wear by noting how many minutes it takes to fill the tank to cut-out. As the compressor wears it will take increasingly longer to fill. When new, and depending on tank size/ hp, most compessors fill within 2 ~ 5 min. Good luck

Craftsmen air compressor #919.155730-motor runs,pump moves, but doesn't build pressure. how long does it take? could I not be waiting long enough?


Your unit should fill within 5 min. Compressor may have worn cylinder or just leaking. Easy test. Spray soapy water on all connections/fittings including drain valve and regulator while compressor is running. Repair as needed. If no leaks, remove plug from outlet, remove cover and examing cylinder. Turn crank by hand till piston is all the way up into cylinder. Examing carefully the condition of the cylinder close to top. If the cylinder is scratched or worn then pressure is leaking between piston/cylinder and will not fill tank. Replace cylinder kit available at Sears, cost under $50. Good luck with your project.

My motor compressor thrifts every 5 mins.


If you have a low pressure switch on your air conditioner it's opening and closing, because you don't have enough refrigerant in the system or it's cycling on the thermal overload in the compressor because it's getting hot.
You need to charge your system to approximately 12° to 15° superheat not by pressure.

If the machine is new, take it back to the dealer and get your money back or at least have them get it repaired under warranty. It would appear that the diaphragm has a hole in it or it has a missing valve assembly in the compressor itself. Have you checked around the machine for large air leaks? Check the safety 'blow-off' valve for any leakage? Look for missing tank plugs or a missing shut-off valve at the air exit point. Good luck!

Champion VR7F will not restart without hitting reset switch.


Solved this problem. It required a new motor starter (or at least one component from the starter. The main power lead running to the thermal overload relay had oxidized and was conducting current poorly. Each time it would run ( I did this with the motor starter cover off) the lead going to the bottom side of the thermal overload would spark then glow red during the tank fill. I removed the bad section of wire, and installed a new thermal overload in the starter.

Air compressor fills, but slows down as the pressure builds


sounds like you need a new check valve which should be somewhere between the compressor outlet piping,tubing,etc and the tank which prevents the air in tank to back feed to the compressor which would cause hard starting and could damage the motor easy way to check is when you shut off the compressor with some air in the tank if the check valve is bad it would continue to bleed air out out the unloader valve .the unloader valve on your unit is most likely part of the pressure switch when the unit shuts of it should only bleed down the pressure in the pump so it would make it easy to start when needed hope i didn't confuse you

Compressor comes on and hums and goes off and does it again, ?


The fact that your compressor completes a cycle indicates that the motor and pump are probably working correctly, however when the pressure switch cycles off there should be a slight release of the air that remains in the airline. If this air is not released thru the unloader of the pressure switch the motor cannot overcome the back-pressure in the airline and just hum. There should be a 1/4 in. hose extending from the pressure switch to the checkvalve in the tank. There is a small tab and needle valve that releases the air. Also check that the tank checkvalve is not leaking air back into the airline as this would cause back pressure. Finally, failing motor start capacitor will cause motor to hum. Weak capacitor will start motor when cold and no pressure in tank, but when things heat-up and with pressure in tank, motor may not have enough power to overcome load and hum. Enjoy
