Make sure the valve you are talking about isn't the pressure control, if it is you need to turn it the other direction (clockwise) it the know is turned all the way open, you will get no pressure.

Hi Larry


Here are a few things to check, you may have already checked some of these.


Electricity...Compressors will run best with full 115Vot 15AMP/Or 220V electrical supply from a circuit, over the shortest electrical cord as possible.


Air Leaks..Place your ear close to the compressor and listen for air leaking, if you hear air that is not normal and means you have to locate and repair whatever it is that is leaking.
Check the air unloader valve... The air unloader valve will blown out air when you turned off the compressor, that is normal.
But it should not have air leaking out of it all of the time. If so then it is faulty and in need of repair/replacement.


Valves...If either the intake or exaust valves fail, breaks, or fails to seat, then your compressor will run 24 hours a day and never build up to the correct pressure for shut-off.


Gaskets...Check to see if your gaskets have failed.
You could have a gasket failure between the pistons and you will never know it because it shows no external air leak.
If this situation happens then the air will only cycle between cylinders and never build up the correct air pressure.
One way to check the gasket is remove the air filter, then put your hand over the intake.

If correct then it will suck you hand against the intake.
If the valve or valves have failed then you will feel the air sucking in and blowing out.


Piston Rings and Cylinder...The piston rings could be stuck,broken, or worn and not allowing the correct pressure to build up in your tank.
A worn cylinder will also contribute to the problem of pressure build-up.



Pressure Switch...Check for air leaks at the pressure switch, it has a rubber diaphram that can fail and leak air out of the system.

DeVilbiss air compressor will not build pressure


Does it have an intake air filter? Has the compressor been properly maintained? Oil less? It may have worn out rings and or valves

Compressor sucks air in through the outlet quick connect where the hose attaches. won't build pressure.


I have seen this condition many times. Usually, the comperssor head was removed for cleaning or repair and the valve plate was assembled incorrectly. Easy fix. Remove the head and flip the valve plate. Make sure that other components are correct. Examine plate for warping, gaskets for signs of leaking. Make sure that the motor is turning in the correct direction (fan blades on compressor pulley blowing air towards pump). Finally, take a look at the intank check valve. The valve will allow air into the tank and not let it flow back to the pump. In your case the valve must be faulty because because air was flowing from quick connect to pump. Good luck

Takes long time to pump up, then have to shut it down, compressor acts like it wants to stop, but if I remove small line and let the air out of that side where the line connects, it will run fine but of...

Compressor will only build up to 30psi,i have checked head gasket its ok reed valves seem ok (not broken)


there should be a pressure regulator on your compressor. sometimes the adjustment is covered by a plastic cap, remove the cap and use a flat screwdriver to turn the pressure regulating screw. clockwise for more pressure or counterclockwise to decrease the pressure. depending on the type of pressure regulator it should only take 2 to 4 complete turns to increase your pressure to 110-120 psi.
