Why does my porter cable air compressor hums when it kicks back on?


If the unit comes on a builds pressure, stops normally and when the pressure drops TRIES to come back on BUT just hums, it is because the motor cannot overcome the internal pressure. This is usually because a part called an "unloader" valve has not let the pressure off or there is no unloader. If you post the model number, I can check.

Porter cable 3hp air compressor 130 psi no model number visible compressor runs builds up pressure and kicks off when the pressure is builded up in the tank// the compressor will not kick kick back on when...


Hi,
Check to see if the switch will kick in if the pressure is released from the hose going to activate it...if so then the problem is the air being trapped between a check valve and the switch in the hose...
I think that is your problem...
There should be a way for the air pressure to change and represent the tank air pressure accurately....
The different compressors all have different ways of checking the air and then allowing it to release as the the tank pressure decreases..

There is a small hole there somewhere that is clogged with dirt and or oil...find that and clean it and you are in business again...

Grundfos JPF4A pump. takes a long time to get up to prime then once it kicks in after running water it gets to 50 shuts of but drop pressure instantaneously and kicks back in again. The constant on off...


The check valve is bad. When the system builds up pressure and shuts off the check valve prevents water from dropping back down the well line. When the check valve goes bad water drops back down the well line and siphons water back out of the well tank causing the switch to kick on and off constantly. The check valve will between on the well line coming from the drop pipe. It may be making a constant rattling noise as pump is running. Replace the check valve and you should be fine. Also check the pressure in bladder tank it should be 2psi below the "cut-in" pressure for the switch.

My water pump kicks on every 30 min or so even if there is no water used


When a pump goes on and off there is a water leak somewhere.
There should be a gauge. Let the pump build up pressure and watch the gauge.
The pressure will probably be dropping. This means that water is going somewhere. The leak could be anywhere that you use water, sprinklers, sinks, hose lines. If there is a valve above or near the pump, shut that valve and see if the pressure stops dropping. If the pressure stays up and the pump stops cycling on and off, the leak in in the pressure piping somewhere, you must locate it and repair it.
If the pressure continues to drop even with the discharge valve shut, the water must be leaking back into the well. There is a check valve somewhere on your line between the well and the pump. If this check valve is leaking, pressure will drop and the pump will come on to restore it.

If it is possible to shut off the discharge of the pump, shut that valve and watch the pressure gauge to see if it is dropping.

AC COMP TURNS AND OFF


System is probably a little low on refrigerant. Once it kicks on, it drops the low side pressure enough to trip the low pressure switch. When the system goes off, and the pressure equalizes, it has enough pressure at the low side switch to kick it back on. Add a can of refrigerant with leak detector and stop-leak to find out why it's low. (or get a sniffer to find te leak).

It will be in the yellow section if the compressor isn't running. Go ahead and hook up the gauge. When the compressor kicks on the pressure should drop to below 15 and then the compressor should kick off. Is it doing this? If yes go ahead and add freon. The yellow section means the pressure is high but you only have to worry about it if the gauge reads in the yellow with the compressor kicked on.
