Usually, the compressor valves are in trouble (many are a thin reed plate which cracks/breaks over time). Remove the head assembly to check. Other possibilities are a plugged intake filter, a slipping drive belt, or a severe leak on the tank like the pressure safety valve. Hope this helps!

Gas pump shuts off like its full many times while trying to refuel.

Usually a blockage in the filler tube or a vent problem.
You may have to take the filler tube off and inspect it. There should be a tube inside or outside the pipe to allow air pressure in the tank to equalize.

How long does it take to complete a wash cycle


In a perfectly normal washer with decent incoming water pressure it should take 3-5 minutes to fill depending on water level size selected.

If what your experiencing is that your washer does fill yet it takes forever the problem is going to be with the water inlet valve.

When fueling my cts coupe the fuel nozzle shuts off after several seconds which takes forever to fill the tank. Last week I just thought I was using a poorly adjusted fuel nozzle, but today I used a...

Fueling it should have nothing to do with the engine light. I feel the reason the nozzle shuts off is because when you fill your tank there has to be a certain amount of air release from the tank while filling. You may have no air release causing air pressure. This air pressure will shut off the nozzle. There should be an air release line hooked to your tank I feel.

I have new gallery frigde, from frigidaire. And the ice bin is taking forever to fill. the water dispencer is working, with pressure, as well.

The water has to first freeze before it will dump into the bucket. Once it is filled, it should stay filled depending on how much ice you use.

Any bleeder of collant

I am not sure on your car, but it is a matter of physics. Look for parts that are HIGHER than the coolant fill cap. Bleeds look like grease fittings, with out the ball in the center, or like a brake bleeder screw. Heater on high during fill and pressure test sequence. A pressure test will tell you if you have any leaks, and if there is much air, it takes forever to pump it up....

Hi, my compressor takes forever to fill up, its a 7hp 75 gallon tank 240 volt 15 amp model. It can take up to 1/2 hour to fill. never did before(filter is clean also) Thanks Tom

Without the model number I am not for sure what pump you have but there are 2 things that can cause this.

#1 Would be the check valve in the tank may be weak or bad. This allows air to go into the tank and not escape. If this is bad typically you will have air coming back out of your pressure switch after the air compressor is turned off.

#2 You may have a blown head gasket between you first and second stage in the top of the compressor pump. To solve this problem you would need to replace the head gaskets in your air compressor.

My whilpool calypso continues to fill machine with water until it overflows.

What is happening is that the fill sensor is apparently not working. The washer will continue filling until it overflows the washer!
Replace the pressure switch. This will solve your problem and cost is about $35.00

Before replacing the switch check the hose which comes to the switch also

It is possible that hose has a hole in it or has come undone. If there is no pressure in the hose, then it wont actuate the switch, and thus fill forever.

If your air tube is in good shape, it could be the switch itself, it may be adjustable.

Takes forever to do the laundry

If it is taking forever to fill, take the water hoses off the supply and check for clogged filters. Also, if you have low water pressure in your house, or old clogged pipes, your water is running slow.
