The one way valve(check valve) is not working,it is allowing all the air in the tanks to put back pressure on the head,not allowing it to start.

My HUSKY air compressor mod # WL651004AJ,will startup but after it reach 150psi,the presure will drop and it will not startup again.

This problem is usually caused by the in-tank check valve. Follow the discharge airline from the pump to the tank. This line will connect to a brass or chrome valve (check valve). Easy to test. With air in the tank, pull power cord for safety, remove the small tube (or larger) at the brass valve. If air is leaking here, replace the valve with generic valve or try removing the valve and clean the seat. Good luck.

The motor can't get going to keep air presure up.

problem same as your compressor usually problems in the piston, where it cannot compress air with strong, usually the ring piston is leak.

Compressor keeps running regulater valve will only go up to 50psi and comp keeps running and presure valve only goes to 50 to never shuts off

You either have a severe air leak in the tank (possibly the safety valve is leaking), or the compressor valves require service. Remove the cylinder head to check the valves. good luck!

Our air compressor TC 196 fills when turned on and then it starts leaking out of the silver hole on the black box. It was fine a few weeks ago and we have a show in 2 days. Help!

it will be a velve, perhaps the tank oneway inlet velve then when the compressor shuts off its hitting the unloader therfor the air in the tank is escapeing, but you didnt say you loose presure.hope this helps

I have an IR Air Compressor #SS3 E. It want stop running/building up pressure. I am sure its the pressure relief valve, but there are 2. One at the presure regulator and the other at the pump and motor.How...

if it is lifting both valves I would say that the pressure switch (regulator as you call it) is defective, if you try to shut it off using the manual switch and it keeps running, I would say that the switch is welded shut. if it does not shut off by 125 psi then it is faulty. The pressure switch is what controls the motor in response to pressure in the tank.

Hi,lets see what we can do.The air compressor has a relief valve,like check valve .that is not working.The valve reliefs the head pressure so it can be restarted at any time.If pressure is on top of the piston pushing down it can not restart.The pressure in the head on top of the piston is greater than the pressure under the piston.I hope this helps,if you need more assistance feel free to contact me.,,
