Trouble building pressure

I have a 2 hp porter cable pancake compressor. I can't get it to go over 35 lbs of pressure all of a sudden. I have made sure it is drained. Any suggestions?

I would check the reed valves in the pump. One of them may be broken.

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.

I have a Porter Cable pancake compressor Model CFFN250N-2 which worked great last year. This year I turn it on and it just continues to build pressur euntil the safety valve blows.


i think you have a problem with the pressure control. unplug the compressor and open the controller. check all the connections and really look it over. these pressure switches today just do not hold up well. sometimes there is enough moisture in the unit that it can freeze over winter and crack. if yours has a plastic hose to connect then check that over as well. check this site. they have a good parts break down ans look ar parts 111and 112 and 113. all called pressure switch service kit.

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.

Yes...the drain valve on the bottom of the tank is just a standard 1/4 Drain Pedcock that you can purchase at most hardware store.
You can also find these in the hardware section of Lowes or Home Depot where they sell the Air Compressors.

You can test the other components of the compressor by temporarily by-passing the pressure switch. Connect line in to motor wires and plug in unit, unplug when pressure reaches 125 to 130 lbs. There is a safety relief just in case so do not worry. It the pressure does not reach target pressure there may be a leak or worn cylinder. If target pressure is reached in a short time replace pressure switch. Very easy repair. Good Luck.

Air Leak From Pump Head on Porter Cable C2001 Pancake Compressor


The real question is where exactly is the leak coming from. Compressors have a pressure release valve designed to let the pressure off of the compressor motor so it can start when there is pressure in the tank. This valve is often the culprit and fairly easy to replace. You can order it direct from porter-cable online. Just in case double check the drain petcock sometimes these get worn and won't close completely and can easily be over looked when trouble shooting.

Compressor runs and runs but only builds 40lbs pressure


At the web address below you will find a parts list of your compressor. The most likely problem areas are the tube seal and the piston/cylinder. The tube seal seals the discharge tube to the head of the compressor. It will fail over time and cause the problem that you have. (only costs a few dollars) The other problem that you could have is a worn cylinder. Your compressor is oil free thus the piston ring is made of silicone vinyl and wears depending on conditions at the job site. Heavy dust/ dirt will shorten the life of the unit. With unit unpluged and covers removed, push the piston to top of stroke and examine upper portion of cylinder. If you see groves/scratches install cylinder kit. (cost around 39 dollars) In most cases I would replace both the seal and cyl kit. These parts are also available at your local dewalt service center or on line at dewalt.com. The folks at dewalt are very helpfull. Good luck with your repair and email if you have more questions.

Air leak after reaching 150 psi & shutting off


Everything I read in the owners manual suggest you take unit in for a trained service tech to repair. It could possibly be a few things causing this but from what I can see there are not that many replaceable repairable parts for this. Good luck
