Some air compressors have 1 or 2 pistons one the piston sleeves could have a crack or a small hole what i would do is clean every thing and make sure the inlet valve is open and the unloader valve is clear of debris but if it doesn't help then you propably have a cracked piston sleeve I hope i was helpful ( tell me the model of it and i could get you more information)

I had the exact same problem. Mine was because I had several ounces of water in my tank. I drained the tank and now it works great. I have come across others that have fixed this problem by replacing one or all of these: Check Valve, Unloader Valve, or Pressure Switch. Hope this helps your are someone else with the same issue.

Most people recommend replacing the motor capacitor in this situation, since a faulty cap will reduce the starting torque. But in my case the check valve was the culprit - there was too much back pressure on the head.

Air compressor not unloading


Check the pressure switch. The unloader valve is actually in the pressure switch where the small air line from the tank check valve attaches to it. When the pressure switch turns the motor off it then lets the head pressure bleed off so the motor can restart the next time pressure drops in the tank. If it's not working and bleeding off the head pressure the cold start valve (the one with the pin in it) also won't open so the motor can restart and warn up properly.

you must have wired the new pressure switch incorrectly .when the pressure switch opens it will release the head pressure so your compressor must be running with the pressure switch contacts open should be 4 connections 2 marked motor which is from your compressor and 2 marked line which is your power coming in

If the unit does not unload properly the motor will have difficulty starting. Make sure that the intank check valve is not leaking air back out of tank (with pressure in tank, remove hose from compressor at tank checkvalve and spray soapy water). Replace as needed if leaking or try to repair. If the valve is not leaking then issue my be unloader valve at the pressure switch. Follow small airline from checkvalve to pressure switch. Small valve stem at the pressure switch should release air in line when pressure switch cuts off. Listen for small amount of air to be released when unit shuts off, if air continues to leak out, then check valve is leaking. Replace with generic parts making sure of fitting size. Good luck

Compressor runs until overload release valve opens (pressure at 130 psi) and then air escapes until pressure lowers to 100 psi..Then motor begins to restart, but will not , due to 100 psi and kicks breaker...


There is a check valve between the compressor and tank, and there is also an 'unloader valve' which blows the pressure off the compressor so that it starts under little load. I think your check valve is stuck open and the unloader valve is blowing tank pressure off.. and when the compressor tries to start it's starting against the pressure in the tank.

So check/replace/thaw the check valve and you'll be good to go. It's generally at the tank where the line from the compressor head goes into the tank, it'll be between the two somewhere.

My compressor will start and run well but when it turns off it will turn but not run stalls and kicks the breaker


It sounds like the small valve that releases the pressure out of the main pipe that runs between the compressor and tank is not working once the tank is full and the motor automatically cuts off. You know this valve is working by the sound of a short spurt if air being released when the motor cuts off. Releasing this pressure means that the motor is able to restart easily because there is no load. If the valve is not releasing this air, the compressor is trying to start under full load which the motor is not capable of doing, hence the humming and popping of breakers due to a current overload as the motor tries to start. Motor burnout is possible if it keeps recurring.
This small release valve is attached to the Pressure control switch that switches the motor On & Off and usually has a small pipe going to it or is incorporated inside the Pressure Control Switch.

There is not a point setting for air compressors. The pressure switch can be adjusted. Remove the cover from the pressure switch. Adjust the nut tighter for a higher cut off pressure or looser for a lower cut off pressure. It sounds like the compressor is trying tostart under load. If the unloader valve is not working, the compressor will draw excess amperage and do what you describe. The unloader valve releases the pressure in the cylinder at the end of the run cycle so the compressor can start the next run cycle under no load.

Unloader valves


Yes, your compressor will work just fine with a Load Genie continuous run unloader from www.grainger.com. The part number is 4tk14 with a cost of about 45.00. This unloader has a built in check valve so you can remove the present in-tank checkvalve and save it for later use. All that you need to do is install the unloader at the tank and compressed air in to top of valve. (you may have to buy extra fittings to make it work with your tubing size) Adjust valve to open just before the pressure switch cut-off setting. The unloader will bypass the compressed air and will have less stress on the motor. You will not need to use the present unloader at the pressure switch. The only caution is to manually unload the Load Genie upon initial start if there is pressure in the line. Good Luck with your project.

Breaker relay tripping out


If the unloading valve trips , which i think is the safety valve that tells me the compressor is pumping up past its maximum allowed pressure. that black switch should be the overload switch. check the amps of the wires going to the motor while its running and then look at the name plate of the motor to see the maximum amount of amps that the motor is allowed to draw.
