Question about Porter Cable C2002 Wk 150 Psi 6 Gal. Oil Free Compressor w/13 Piece Hose & Accessory Kit

Open Question

My compressor developed a leak inside the plastic cover. I removed the cover and found the leak coming from a depression in the head. The depression is part of the head casting, which is directly in line with the metal air line coming out of the air compressor. At the bottom there is a small hole (about 3/16 inch) with a silver metal bottom. There is a very small hole in that silver metal. I could cover the hole with a thin (.5mm) lead pencil. What is that piece? Can it be replaced? Can I do it myself? What parts do I need to complete the job? Where can I get them?

This is probably the check valve in the tank not seating.
If you follow the main line from the compressor to the tank the check valve is at the end of this hose.
This is reference # 11 on your parts diagram.

If you replaced the head gasket then its probably the valve plate and gasket.

It may not be necessary to remove the hose clamps first but you decide. The shroud and motor are to be removed as one assembly. This is done by removing 2 Phillips screws, front and rear. One by the lower front left mounting support, the other by the rear right mounting support. From the front, slide the shroud to the left to unlock the tank mounting tangs. From there you can remove the 5 screws to split the shroud in two halves. There are 4 rubber vibration pads on the motor. Take care to notice where they are for reassembly.

How do I replace rear speakers on 2008 GL 1800?

The plastic grill covers are held on by snaps which are on the outer inside edge and require the use of a small, flat-bladed screwdriver. Find the snaps and gently depress them with the screwdriver and the covers come off. The speakers are secured by 4 Phillips head or cross slot screws.

Very hard to start when cold, even in temps above freezing but below 60 degrees.

The early Hitachi EC89's came with a 40 microfarad capacitor to start the motor. This is insufficient when its cold, or the compressor hasn't been used in a while, or the compressor is still in its break-in period. Hitachi later changed it to a 60 microfarad capacitor, as it now is with the currently offered EC89's, which provides reliable and consistent starts of the electric motor. FYI: the capacitor is the white tube looking thing just under the black cover on the top side of the compressor. You can just see it without disassembling anything if you peek under the black cover to the best of your ability. To get at it you need to remove the black plastic cover. To do that, it takes about 20 minutes of disassembly time and a few tools: unplug the compressor, disconnect at least one end of the copper pressure tube (the tube that runs from the pump to the tank), remove the four main bolts that hold the black steel compressor base to the main frame, now you can get at the four phillips head screws that hold the plastic cover on, loosen (but don't remove) these four phillips head screws, then pop off the plastic cover (there are anti-vibration side locks that need to be disengaged- by using a long flat head screwdriver from the inside- to pry them and pop them off from the inside). Once the black cover is loose, you will either have to reach in and disconnect the two wires to the breaker, or unthread the breaker's little hex nut and separate it from the black cover. Replacing the 40 microfarad capacitor with a 60 microfarad capacitor (available at your local electric motor rebuilder- yellow pages) will resolve the problem of the weak starting motor that pops the breaker before the motor gets a chance to start rotating. Shame on Hitachi for not publishing this fix themselves.

I have had this problem intermittently - often it occurs if I left the compressor pressurized overnight (i.e. forgot to drain it.) In the morning the pressure has gone down - I can turn it back on and...

There is only one relief valve and it is on the outside. The valve is set to open if pressure builds past 160psi. You may be having trouble with the pressure regulator (large knob with high/low arrow). This regulator will leak at times. You can determing if it is leaking by unplugging /shutting off the compressor when you hear the leak. If the leak stops as you shut it off then most likely due to discharge tube seal at the head of the pump. If you continue to hear leak after shut off turn pressure knob counter clockwise all the way out. If you hear a change in the amount of leak or stops then pressure valve is problem. Parts are available at dewalt service center or at

My freezer is not cooling and leaking water what can i do?

It is possible that the defrost timer located inside the fresh food section in stuck in defrost. I want you to open the door to the fresh food section and above and inside the control panel where you adjust temperatures should be a small hole about the size of a pencil. Sometimes the hole is covered by a plastic plug. Remove the plug and turn the timer with a flat head screwdriver until the compressor starts. If the compressor starts this would indicate that the timer is defective and will need replaced. Let me know what you find. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Compressor air leak

hi first we have to find where the leak is comming from ,so you will have to remove the cover,secondly is the leak just from an external fitting?if so then you can see the problem and a simple adjustment or removal to re seal can be done ,if the leak appears to be from the pump head joint then the head will have to be removed and a replacement gasket fitted however i reccomend that if this is done then a new valve set be fitted at the same time
hope this helps ian
