If there is not a leak, then it is likely the pump is just worn out.
But if you have a long rubber hose, try a shorter and harder one.
If you are waiting for high pressures, like over 80 psi, then a more powerful pump is called for.

I have a craftsman air compressor that the right guage wont go past 50 and the left guage wont go past 80 and its seems to run forever


Usually there is a leak some where. turn off and watch pressure to see if it drops and listen for any air leak. you should not hear anything.

It takes forever to fill up with air pressure


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!

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....

I have a craftsman 20gal. 1.5 horsepower compressor. I turn it on and it runs forever and there is no pressure in the tank. what sould to First.


The first step is an inspection. If it develops no pressure at all in the tank you probably have a mechanical failure of the pump. But before tearing into that, listen as the unit runs, does it sound different from usual? Any hissing of escaping air? Check the intake air filter for blockage. If the unit was used for spray painting, perhaps the air is choked off by dried paint. If you have not found it at this point, it must be a problem with the pump. Any chance of warranty? (you might want to ask sears)

Kobalt air compressor will not go above 80PSI


if this is an older or much used unit, cylinder/piston may be worn, unable to push higher psi, which would explain no leaks. if newer unit, seems like regulator unit/valve faulty

Not getting cold air out of A/C


Freon is low, go to walmart and buy a R134 kit with guage attached (not very expensive. Connect it to the low pressure side of the A/c system (don't worry the connection won't fit on the high pressure side) Read the guage on the kit and add as neccessary. It truly is that simple.

No air pressure!


there are "0" rings in the compressor, if the compressor is less than $200 it's a "throw away". it can be repaired but usually not worth it

Gas air compressor shuts down


IS IT BUILDING TO THE UNLOAD PRESSURE AND THEN STALLING OR JUST SHUTTING DOWN ANYTIME. IS THE UNIT SITTING AT AN ANGLE?

DOES IT WORK FINE WITH THE LOW OIL SWITCH UNPLUGGED? UNPLUG SWITCH AND LEAVE IT UNPLUGGED FOREVER.THEY'RE ALL P.O.S.

Air Compressor won't go over 35PSI


Hello, Your air compressor is leaking in the cylinder and is unable to produce more than the 35psi. Unfortunately oilless air compressors do not last very long. The rings and cylinders wear out. I have successfully repaired some units but, I usually recommend buying the oil type compressor. They last forever. If you want to try and repair it let me know and I'll help you. Good luck.
