    I have an oilless Campbell Hausfeld twin stack air compressor. Last time I used it everything worked fine. Next time I plugged it in and it ran okay, but won't build up any pressure in the tanks. Tank valves are all closed, safety valve is just won't build up any pressure. Finally it stopped althogether, as if it had seized up. After a cool-down period it runs again, but still won't pump up any pressure. Any ideas????

This is caused by a bad pressure regulator most likley, or you might check the drain on the bottom to ensure it is closed.

Compressor has air coming out the air in take, and has air pressure in the crankcase. When shut off. I shut it off at 150psi.

home compressors should cut out at 100- 110 psi so check / replace the controller
air out of the inlet is air under pressure holding the valves open
pressure in the sump is a blocked breather for the sump possibly from excessive air pressure
remember it is not pressure that drives tools but volume flow so if you have a 10 cubic ft /min compressor but are running a tool that requires 12 cubic ft /min air then 150 psi is not the answer
a bigger capacity compressor is

High resvr press message comes up on my 30hp Champion Rotochamp. What is the real issue here?

Minimum pressure valve is defective and not allowing the air to flow through or oil air separator is bad which will also restrict the air to leave the separator tank.

first I hope that you drain the water out of the tank regularly. It seems as though you might have an air hose collapsing but in any case there is something apparently restricting air flow too the gun. try opening the petcock and see if you have steady air discharge or not and if you have another air hose try it. Also, are coming directly off the compressor to the tool or do you have an oiler or drier in line? if so, eliminate the accessory. Let me know how you do....I'm curious.

I have moisture in my air flow, and I was

On the bottom or the tank there should be a drain valve
Open it, then start your compressor, allow the unit to run for 2 or 3 minutes this will dry it out

We drain the compressors in our shop daily to avoid water build up and the rust that comes with moisture
Over time you can rust a tank through, which will never happen at a good time and could be dangerous

The air is flowing back into the color barrell

First of all we must know how is works,that is air enters the brush causing a vacuum at the paint hose,where the hose is dip into the paint barrel,so paint will fill the vacuum where it will attend the brush,so if the air mechanism in the brush is glogged air will flow in the paint barell.Solution is to dismentle the brush and clean the air mechinism

I have some severe free flow goin on, on my hpbcs iwata eclipse

It sounds like you have a problem with the air valve. Possible deterioration of the valve material? I am not sure what they use, but if it is a rubber the cleaning thinner MAY have destroyed its properties if the cleaner got into the air path and valve.

Ingersol t30 compressor can be forced to turned on by holding down starter electrical control. Is the air valve sensor malfuctioning to tell it not to engage?

The motor contactor that starts the motor when you press the button has an aux. contact on the side that holds it in after you let off the button. It's not working.

Air compressor pressure not regulating

Usually you cannot adjust the cut out pressure of the tank/motor itself, this is why they have regulators, which regulates the pressure flowing down the air lines (regulators like these dont regulate actual tank pressure cutout). To regulate air flow using the regulator knob, you actually have to have air flowing through the hose while you make the regulator/pressure adjustments as regulators regulate pressure DOWNSTREAM from the actual regulator itself.. so air flowing through is a must. Attach an air blower or something similar and let air start flowing through the hose. Now turn your regulator knob in the "-" direction to decrease regulated pressure. It is best to bring pressure all the way down to "0" first, then open the regulator up (by turning to the "+" side) and pressure will rise until you get to the desired pressure needed for the air tool in use. The tank pressure will still be between 80-125 PSI as the motor regulates and keeps the pressure in the tank between these values automatically, but your line/hose air flow pressure will remain at the regulated pressure (say 40 PSI or whatever you set using the regulator knob).

Hope that helps and makes sense.
