Try resetting the pressure switch which should have a regulating device in it somewhere.

My black&decker electromate 400 compressor runs but will not build pressure


Mark:

There is an air leak in the system. check the easy stuff first. let the compressor run, and carefully feel around the ends of the tube that runs from the compressor cylinder head to the tank. You can sometimes feel where the air is escaping. You can also squirt a soapy solution on the ends of the tube and look for bubbles or pressurized air blowing the fluid back in your face :-).
When you find the leak, you will know how to stop it. Also check the drain valve at the bottom of the tank to make sure that it is closed and not leaking. Check your hose connections for leaks... remove the air hose and run the compressor.. if it builds pressure, your hose connections are leaking. The harder stuff... Take the shroud off, check the head bolts for torque and the head gasket to see if it is blown, (Use the soap solution). The really hard stuff... If you have found no leaks, the valve body or piston ring(s) are the problem. You'll need to pull the cylinder head and replace the valve body or piston or piston rings.

Good luck

I was given a 3-HP HDC pancake compressor a few days ago and the man (he was throwing it away) said it worked although a bit slow to build up pressure and that it needed a new gasket. Is it worth keeping...


Hi app_3rp778
I would suggest that you replace the head gasket, it should not cost too much to replace it.
I would guess the gasket would be around $10-$15 usd
If you replace it yourself it would be very advantageous as the repair cost would only be the gasket.
If you take it to a repair shop, I would guess they would charge around $50-$60 usd for the repair of the compressor and replacement of the gasket
Do some research on the web for your parts or check out the webpage below.
Have the parts sent to your house...will be cheaper to take the part to the repair shop then to have them order it...they normally charge 200% on parts.
Also look at the following webpage for repair of the gasket and some more hints on how to repair a porter cable compressor pancake compressor, it is not your compressor but it will be somewhat like your compressors repair procedures.
Please take time to rate me

Compressor runs, builds up pressure, but wont come out of hose/???


When the pressure regulator fails, no pressure will be available at hose. Replace the regulator with generic available at Lowes or bypass. To bypass the regulator (this method will give you full tank pressure to hose) remove the safety valve (or gauge if it threads directly into tank) and install a tee fitting. On one side of tee fitting reinstall the safety and the other port is for quick connector. You can also install a regulator here if you would like to save time and the old regulator is difficult to remove. Good luck

The manifold which holds the Air Hoses and control valve and gauge is broken and I need a new one ,dont know the part number


We repair lots of compressors with broken manifolds. Most compressors now use a manifold with a built in pressure regulator. We are not able to find exact matches so we use a manifold from porter cable or make one out of pipe fittings. If your compressor was made in china, most likely the thread and tubing sizes are almost impossible to match. To use porter cable parts, go to dewalt service center or to porter cable dealer and find close match then use that model number for ordering your part. Check closely that parts/thread/fittings will work.

You would have to locate a shop that sells parts for this unit. If it is simply a threaded inlet & outlet regulator, you might even find parts at a local hardware.
