Question about Honda Air Tools & Compressors

1 Answer

My air compressor starts right up, runs for approximately a minute, then quits. If left sitting for a minute or two, it will start again, and run for a minute, then stop. If you shut the fuel off, it will still start up again. Does this sound electrical? Carbuerator?

It sounds like the compressor is reaching the max psi it can hold. At this point can you use a air tool or blower? The reason it comes back on is to keep the psi at running level. It replentishes the lost or used air.

Good luck!

Snapping noise then quits


Not sure what model yours is, but sounds like you have a bad start capacitor that has dried up or swelled and "snapping" when making connection. If you can give me the Brand and model number I can see what capacitor you need.

It stoped working and well it just doesnt seem to start up again and does it need charging


It should start even if it needed charging. I do not believe foolant levels are the problem here.
Things that prevent the compressor from starting are.
1. Defrost thermostat or thermistors (Near the evaporator coils) The are supposed to terminate the defrost cycle at 60 deg F and tell the control or timer to restart the compressor.
2. Adaptive defrost controls or defrost timers.
3. PTC relay and KliXon Thermal overload protectors
4. Failed compressor windings or bearings.

If the fans are running... suspect the compressor or compressor components PTC / Thermal Overload windings or bearings. If the compressor tries to start but fails to run, it could be the run capacitor. If it just sits there and hums every 4 - 6 minutes it is most likely that the compressor has failed.

Since there was not a make or model number included with this post the answer above is quite generic. Hopefully by using the information above you can determine where the problem lies.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

STARTS and runs well but quits and wont start again until it sits awhile.Acts like vapor lock,checked fuel and spark,compression and timing,all good.Replaced fuel filter,mass air sensor and cut holes in...


I had the same problem but when I changed the Mass Air Flow it was solved. I am suprised that you changed the MAF and you are still getting problems. Please get an OBD check. The problem must be having something to do with electronics and the ODB will definetly be able to read it.

UNIT RUNS FOR APPROXIMATELY 12 / 15 minutes BLOWING COLD AIR, THEN SOUNDS AS THOUGH A RELAY TRIPS IN AND IT BEGINS BLOWING COLOD ? IF LEFT FOR AN HOUR OR SO, IT WILL START TO BLOW THE COLD AIR AGAIN, BUT...


It sounds like you may have a bad capacitor or a poor connection on some wire at the compressor terminals. I assume the fan is running outside with the compressor and that the condenser is clean. *Note if it needs "regassed" (recharged) it means there is a leak somewhere that needs to fixed first. Hopefully that is not your problem.

Compressor shuts down 59516.531G


Is the compressor too hot to touch when it shuts down? This would indicate a low charge

Compressor starts and doesn't stop


Relay for the compressor may be stuck ( Contacts welded) both the fan and the compressor should operate at the same time. Have the relay(s) checked and possibly replaced.
