Inccrease the line pressure to 90 PSI, a air ratchet is a very high volume air tool and the compressor may not be able to keep up with it.

Heat pump compressor wont come on in heat mode, works fine in cool mode, we get heat occaisionally for about 2 min, then the compressor shuts off. it is a fridgedaire window unit.


Try setting the thermostat at a normal heat setting. By raising the temperature too high the unit thinks that the heat pump won't be effective and go into strip heat mode.

My Campbell Hausfeld compressor model WL650101AJ will only pump to 80psi and will not shut off.


TAKE THE COVER OF THE TOP HAS 2 PHILLIPS SCREWS AND SNAPS OFF. THERE IS A COPPER TUBE THAT GOES BETWEEN THE COMPRESSOR HEAD AND THE CHECK VALVE TAKE THE TUBE COMPRESSION NUTS LOOSE AND REMOVE THE TUBE. CHECK THE RUBBER SEALS IF THEY ARE MISSING OR TORN YOUR COMPRESSOR LEAKS WHEN IT IS RUNNING BUT IF YOU SHUT IT OF THERE IS NO AIR IN THE PIPE SO CHECKING IT WITH IT OF WONT DETECT THE LEAK. MY COMPRESSOR WAS DOING THE SAME THING AN THIS FIXED IT.

Compressor runs to 175psi but trips pressure relief when pressure drops tries to restart motor but motor wont turn blows breaker. changed whole pressure switch have same problem.


The problem is lilkely the check valve between the compressor and the tank -- it is alowing pressure to build from tank to compressor preventing the compressor from turning over. Clean, maybe replace, check valve...

I got one of your compressors off a friend that had not used the unit in years, it say in his garage and collected dust. So I changed the plug and wires, got a new outlet in my garage for a 230 line and...


With pressure in tank test for leak at the check valve. Follow the discharge line from the pump to the tank. There you will find the checkvalve (usually brass valve). If the check valve leaks the compressor will be under load when motor tries to start and will probably trip breaker. Look for reset button (red button )on the compressor motor and push-in to reset. With pressure in tank the motor /pump should turn freely by hand. If checkvalve good and unit turns freely, test capacitor for proper valve. It should test to within 95% of printed uf/mfd.

I have a small central pneumatic air compressor it is 2hp 8 gallonwith a 90 psi air flow.I bought a cheap small air drill and 3/8 air ratchet. neither will run. They run slow


Most of the time the air flow rating for the air tools you are trying to use are rated higher than your unit, Check the lable on the tools and compare to your compressor, otherwise you have have some type of restriction in the air line or within the tool itself. Hope this helps.

Air compressor motor stalls under pressure


this sounds like a bad pressure switch.if the unit is not shutting off at the same pressure each time this would be the cause.2 if the pressure is not unloading the air pressure on the compressor side of the unit it will cause the unit to struggle when it starts a cycle because the piston is under a load .how this works is say the unit starts from 0 psi when it get to the desired pressure you have it set on the unit kicks off . the other adjustment most units have on them is what pressure to cycle back on.so when the unit reaches say 100 pounds ,it kicks off and bleeds the air off the compressor side so when it starts back up it wont start up with pressure on the piston.

4wd wont work on 1999 chevy tracker but front drive shaft is turning?


The locking hub control system is not engaging properly. On the 99 Tracker this is a compressed air system that consists of an air pump (compressor), electrical wiring to power and control the air pump, and air hoses that lead to an actuator inside the front differential housing. If there is a leak in the system the PCM will run the air pump for 10 seconds and then shut off, and your propeller shaft can turn all day long, but the front axles will remain free floating. Turn on your key, not your engine, and engage four wheel high. Go listen near the passenger front bumper for the air compressor. If you hear it, then the compressor control and the compressor itself are likely fine. If it shuts off after 10 secs or so, and your 4WD light isn’t on, the PCM timed out the compressor out and shut the compressor off to protect it. You will have to find the leak and fix it. If you are lucky, it’s the air line leading to the front differential; and not the air line inside the differential housing, or the air bladder in the locking actuator, which also resides inside the font diff. If the compressor shuts off and the 4WD light is on (this means the PCM did not shut the air compressor off due to timeout, so the pressure switch read 5-7 psi and the pump shut itself off), you likely don’t have a leak, and something mechanical has the actuator hung up inside the front differential. Lastly if you don't hear the compressor run at all, you either have a faulty compressor, or some sort of wiring problem in that circuit.....it could be as simple as a blown fuse. Good luck.
