Question about Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

My husky air compressor model is WJ10064AJ. I got this compressor my brother in law. The compressor runs but the pressure is low. It shut off at 75 psi and 75 lbs on air. I have to shut it off for a while and turn it back on. It will come on on it own.

All of your problems indicate the pressure switch is bad. I don't know which part number to recommend because Campbell Hausfeld (Husky) model numbers have six digits and there aren't any model numbers or part numbers I can find that start with WJ. You need to contact Campbell Hausfeld (1-800-543-6400) to see what part you have to order to fix your compressor.

If your mechanical enough to figure out how to lower the air pressure switch on the compressor it would help with start up loads. For instances if your pressure switch is set for 75 psi. Lower this to 60 psi. or as low as you can and still operate equipment. Otherwise depending what horsepower and voltage {guessing 110 vac) the motor is, I would try an Hard start capacitor for refrigerators or air conditioners. They are rated by horsepower and have a built in relay that kicks it off automatically after starting . You can find these at any appliance or a/c & heating supply house.

It sounds like you need to replace the run capacitor , if yours is weak or defective the motor will overheat. Check "Drillspot" for a replacement. Another major cause of overheating is due to a dirty air filter , you should check it first.

While using my compressor (Husky WL65004AJ) the compressor used to go on when the pressure dropped down to about 85-90 psi. Now it doesn't. The only way that I can build up the pressure again is to shut...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. I tried several places too cross this model number: WL65004AJ without success. The pressure switch has 2 settings one for HIGH cutoff and one for LOW cycle on. 1/2 of your pressure switch is not functioning properly. With the proper model number I could find a source for the pressure switch for you. There are a couple of different types of presure switchs, One is a stand alone switch on the air plumbing with no external controls (under $30.00) and one is an all-in-one switch that has the on off switch and air lines connected to it that runs around $86.00. You need a pressure switch.... it is just a matter of finding out which one fits your model and replacing it.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Compressor will only build pressure to 75 psi and stop and compressor keeps running what could be wrong


If you can hear air bleeding off through the air filter when you turn it off then the check valve has failed on the compressor discharge to tank line and cannot overcome the tank pressure. If there is no air coming out through the air filter than the intake and dischare valves have become weak or are broken/not seating. Post your findings, I wil see if i can help I worked on compressors for 5+ years

HUSKY 26 Gallon Shuts Down After <75PSI!?


Possibly the pressure switch needs to be adjusted to reach a higher pressure. Trace the power cord into a box that also is piped into the pressure line from the compressor. If the pressure works itself back down again, use thread-locker fluid on the adjustment screw to hold it's setting.

Husky comp on 1st start builds up 75 lbs and wont restart


Check the reset button on the motor to see if it tripped. The motor may be overheating. Some motors have an internal breaker and they have to cool off before they restart. Also check the pressure switch. Move the switch back and forth ( on and off ) and listen for a click. If it doesn't click with low to no air pressure then the switch is bad.
