Question about Porter Cable C2002 150 Psi 6 Gal Compressor

Open Question

I have a Porter Cable Model C2002, Type 3 (about 2 years old). The tank pressure builds up fine to 150 lb, but when I use an air tool the motor/pump turns on tool early, it will consistently turn on when I use less than 10 lbs and then turns off at 150 lbs. Do I need a new Regulator ?

IS YOUR AIR FILTER CLOGGED. SOUNDS LIKE THE VALVES IN YOUR HEAD ARE NOT CLOSING ALL THE WAY. THEY ARE MOST LIKELY REED VALVES, THIN STRIPS OF METAL THAT OPEN AND CLOSE WHEN THE PISTON MOVES. MAKE SURE THEY ARE CLOSING ALL THE WAY (NOT CARBONED UP). DID YOU REMOVE THE HEAD AND DID YOU PUT BACK LIKE YOU FOUND IT - NOT TURNED OR FLIPPED OVER. SEE IF YOUR FINGER WILL GET SUCKED UP TO THE INTAKE HOLE.

I dont know if it is like mine,but if you can let the air out of it and remove the regulator knob,and it`s components,you may can set it to just to be open all the time,in other words,by pass the control knob valve.Shout back at me if I can help.

According to Porter-Cable (Delta) themselves, they had lots of bad regulators on these compressors. I'm waiting for one myself. Same issue

I have the same unit and had the same problem Its a good little mechine but the problem is the houseings for the gauges when you are loading the mechine can get hit and move up and this will bend the neddle on the gauge and make it hang up . You can carefuly remove the lense with a small screwdriver it just snaps on and off then gentaly bend the neddle pointer backand snap the lense cover back on and it should work again . Just be carefuly when you transport the mechine not to let the base of the gauges touch anything

C2002 porter cable air compressor will not build air pressure


I found this it might be helpful>.Your check of pulling the line off to the tank and seeing how much pressure is being generated is a good one. You have now pretty much isolated the compressor lack of pressure as being upstream of that point.

I would pull the intake filter too, and do the same check. Is it pulling air in strongly, or is it huffing air back out too? If huffing, that's a sign that the intake valve is pooched.

If it is pulling air in, and air is not being pumped out, yup, it could be a sign of cylinder piston ring wear, but then, you would be getting a lot of air out of the oil fill cap which is vented.

If that isn't happening, and you are getting strong suction at the intake, my money would be on an internal pump gasket blown which is allowing air to flow around inside the pump from high pressure to low, but not down into the tank.

When you open up the pump, you might as well have a new valve plate and gasket kit, as both are, in time, wear items inside the pump.

Why does the safety valve go off before the pressure switch on a porter cable 80 gal air compressor


The maximum pressure on most small compressors is 10 bar or 1000kpa which is about 145 psi in the old language most safety valves are set to 150 psi. I suggest you get some one to reduce the pressure switch setting. Running a compressor at elevated pressures does not give you any more air. A reasonable pressure for small compressors is 120 psi

I have a porter cable 6 gallon compressor. The motor used to cut out at 150 psi, but now it cuts out at 135. Is this a faulty tank pressure gauge misreading the pressure or a motor cutting out too early


it could be your air pressure adjustment knob, where your air line hooks up, which controls the psi to a lower or highist seting to adjust for different tools and uses.

Why my air compressor want shut off after building up pressure


If it is building up to the full rated pressure and there are no air leaks in the hoses then it is most likely the pressure switch. It is item 111 in this parts diagram.

My four-year old PC pancake compressor starts fine but only builds up 60 psi no matter how I adjust the pressure regulator. The compressor motor runs continuously. I checked for air leaks and can't find...


First take off the head on the air pump and check the reed valves on the valve plate. If they got hot and warped or cracked they'll work to a point then no more pressure can be built up. Next check the pistion ring and cylinder wall. If either is damaged you'll only get so much pressure build-up then it will leak past the piston.

Trouble building pressure


I would check the reed valves in the pump. One of them may be broken.

Air won't come out of tank


does the guage show that it is building pressure? if not then the compressor is not working and its not pressurinsing the tank, if it is storing pressure and the compressor is working check the valve on the connector and that its depressing and releasing the air.
