Compressor does not build pressure quickly


The ring on the piston may be worn or cracked. The intake valve might be letting air out if it's leaking

Pressure won't re-build after cut-in


So you are saying that it starts and builds pressure and then shuts off, then when it comes back on again, there is no pressure? Sounds like the unloader valve is sticking open.

My compressor will not go over 20 psi i have a craftsman 921 4 gal 125 psi compressor and it will not build past 20 psi i do not know how to get to the pistons and stuff what do i do?


The problem with compressors not building pressure is usually a bad pressure switch or bad regulator. Does the motor shut off at 20psi or does it continue running and not build pressure? If the motor continues to run with no increase in pressure, the you should go over the machine looking for air leaks from your regulator back all the way to the motor. Any air leak while the compressor is running can cause the pressure to "peak" way before the intended shutoff that it is regulated to.

My craftsmen air compressor wont build pressure. How do i fix it?


If the unit will not build up pressure you need to remove the compressor head from the compressor and inspect both the intake and the exhaust reeds as well as the piston ting on the compressor.
Without the model number of the compressor this is about as far as I can help with.

WILL NOT BUILD PRESSURE


Many craftsman compressor are built by champbell hausfeld using a dry type of cylinder and piston (no oil, no crankcase). If dry type, check for worn cylinder and piston ring. Pieces of the vinyl ring can jamb between the reed valves in the head causing air to escape from the intake. If your compressor has a crankcase and oil, check for broken reed valves in head. Spray soap solution on hoses, checkvalve, drainvalve, and fittings to check for leaks. Most likely problem is reed valves broken or open. Parts are available from sears or match parts to chpower.com. enjoy
