Question about Ridgid r Factory Reconditioned 325 HP 45 Gallon Air Compressor
If you are only getting to 45 psi, you have a problem with either your reed valves or piston rings/cylinder assembly. If you feel comfortable taking it apart, removing the head(s) on the pump will let you inspect both to see which is the problem. The reeds on the valve plate have to be in perfect condition. Buildup, broken or bent reeds will prevent them from sealing so air can be pumped into the tanks. If the seal (oiless) or rings (oil lubricated) around the piston are damaged the same result will occur. These can be indicated by excessive wear marks on the cylinder or stray peices on top of the piston. Both are simple fixes and fairly inexpensive. Without your model number I don't know which parts to recommend. On Ridgid's website they have an excellent parts lookup system and you can order from them or use the part numbers to check other websites for prices.

Try cleaning the unit out and any coils you can reach (typically located near the bottom of the unit behind the toe grille). Do you hear the compressor running? The compressor is constantly meant to go on and off frequently to keep unit at a constant temperature. If you do not, the unit could possibly have a coolant leak or an issue with the internal sealed system including a faulty compressor, evaporate fan or main control board. Contact a professional move forward accurately.
