Assuming you have power to the pressure switch and motor, unplug, dump all the tank air, and try again.

If no luck, it might be a start capacitor, might be a burnt out motor.

See Capacitor Problems from the site map for details on checking.

Cheers,

Bill

upright husky completely dead

by Allen
(Tx)

We have a 26 gal 1.8 hp,155 PSi upright husky compressor that worked fine three days ago but when we tried to start it today it was completely dead. We have checked the electrical to the compressor and it was ok. What could be the problem? It has barely been used.

Allen, odd that there's nothing happening.

The first think I would do is drain the tank to zero PSI.

When that's done, if the compressor doesn't start, can you check and see if power is flowing from the pressure switch to the motor? The normal way is to use a multimeter.

When you've done that, please post the results as a comment here so we can delve deeper if need be.

Cheers,

Bill

Husky H1506F will not register pressure on gauges

I have a Husky H1506F 6 gallon 1.5hp pancake compressor that is no longer registering any pressure on the tank or output gauges.

Let me start by saying I am unfamiliar with the motor and the parts in this system to take the diagnosis very far. I haven't used it enough or recently enough to know whether anything sounds or seems different, but clearly something's not right.

The last time I dragged it out for use was to try to blow out my sprinklers (last season not this year) and I noticed it wouldn't build past about 50-60psi pressure. As of yesterday, nothing registers on the gauges even with the pressure valve fully closed.

And the bottom purge valve and emergency valve are both closed as well.

I doesn't seem to sound different but there is some serious air blowing out the left side of the unit from what appears to be some sort of output duct. I pulled the cover off and the belt and intake appear to be in working order as does the turbine looking thingy inside that duct. Not sure whether I should see air flowing out of there but it is a LOT of airflow. Blow your hair back kind of airflow.
Any thoughts?

Paul, lots of thoughts, some might even be valid. :-) We'll see.

The air that's blowing out of the air compressor, could it be the intake port?

I viewed the schematic to see if I could orient that with your described leak location.

What I suspect is that the very small pump has a failed intake valve, and air is simply being pulled into and blown right back out of the intake port, and none is getting down into the tank.

Cheers,

Bill
