Question about Eagle Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

I have an Eagle 3 cylinder single stage compressor that i've had for years and it has performed flawlessly. Lately i've noticed that as it is building pressure the motor drags down to a lowly putt putt and then picks up again. My shop lights down dim or anything. Also when it is building up pressure and nearing the cut out pressure which is 120lbs it will slow down @ 100Psi and will struggle for the last 20lbs. Do I have an electrical motor issue or a cylinder issue? I would assume electrical..thanks..

I think you are correct with the motor problem but without the model number it hard to know what set up you have.

Eagle Compressors is now located in Belmont Mississippi so you can still get replacement parts for most of the Eagle compressors.

Thanks

Campbell Hausfeld compressor has trouble starting


Sounds like your unloader valve is not releasing pressure in the line to the compressor. When it shuts off after filling up if you do not here the psssht that they make when it is releasing the air in the line to the pump. then the line is still full of pressure which makes it hard for the motor to start. Check your unloader valve.

Unloader valve leaks on my compressor leaks air constant and I think that it must need replacing, does it? just old or what?


THE VALVE COULD BE BAD BUT IT MORE LIKELY THE CHECK VALVE IN THE TANK ISNT CLOSING. DRAIN PRESSURE AND REMOVE CHECK VALVE FROM THE TANK AND INSPECT.
