Speedair compressor is bogging down after it calls for more air.
I have a 1hp 20 gallon Speedair, after twenty years the tank started to leak. I ordered a new tank and swapped the it over. The compressor works fine and fills the tank up to 120psi.
But when the air is used and the pressure drops down to 100psi the motor is tries really hard to refill the tank but it eventually stops turning.
Thank you jim firstname.lastname@example.org
Jim, when you replaced the tank and rebuilt the air compressor, did you make sure that the unloader valve is still working?
That's the first thing I would check when an air compressor is reacting as yours is.
Will a yamaha ef300 run a speedaire 9y289 compressor?
i have a speedaire 9y289 and would like to know if a yamaha ef300 is will run the compressor
The Yamaha generator specs say itputs out 2,800 watts.
1HP = 746 watts
I couldn't locate the HP info of your air compressor to compare the two.
Under powering your air compressor motor will hasten its demise.
