by Mike Stahl
(williamsport pa, usa)

My capacitor went bad in my Task Force air compressor. Evdery site I go to for parts ays that it is unavailable. Do have a suggesttion for a suitable subxstitute capacitor?


Unfortuantely I do not have original specs from capacitor as I tryed to order a substitute ione already and it only lasted on use before it cracked.

Mike you don't need to replace the cap with exactly the same one, you do need to replace it with the same specs.

You have a number of electric motor repair companies where you are, (google search for electric motor repair in our home town)so take the motor and old cap with you and ask them to provide you with a new cap.

Cheers,

Bill

Task Force 15 gal oiless portable compressor
by: Matt B

I have a Task Force hand me down compressor that starts and runs until shutoff psi is reached. Once I began using air to the point the motor comes on, it only runs for a few minutes before it trips the "red" reset button. I turn of the pressure/main switch and wait a few minutes, reset the trip button and eventually, I can get the motor to start running again. I have tried to check the capacitor, but not sure I am getting sufficient readings on the micro ferns. Any and all suggestions are much appreciated!!!

(We'd love to help Matt. Please start a new thread and include the model number. - Moderator)

Mike, we need to figure out what it is that has failed before we start throwing parts at it.

Take a look at the TROUBLESHOOTING page, and then click the link to "will not build pressure". Read the info and the checks there, and look at your compressor based on that info.

Anything make any difference? Let me know as a comment here what you have checked, and we'll see if we can help figure out why your Task Force air compressor is taking longer to fill.

First check, of course, is to feel if air is huffing out of the intake port on the pump. If so, that's going to be the intake valve that is leaking, and that, then, needs to be fixed or replaced.

Cheers,

Bill

task force piston?

by armando
(vacaville,ca)

I ran my compressor low on oil now it won't start

It was running and it stopped so I pulled the plug off the electrical outlet

couple of days later I plugged it again and it worked.

By the way is a task force paid about 120 so do I need anoher 120? Thanks

Nice to hear from you, Armando. Though, I'm not quite sure what the problem is. You ran the compressor dry of oil, it sounds like it overheated and seized, you unplugged the power, and then a couple of days later you plugged it in and it worked? So what is the problem?

You did, I hope, add oil.

My thoughts are that if your compressor is really toast, you can spend a lot more than $120 trying to fix it.

Cheers and good luck,

Bill

Fan but no compressor
by: Bill

I can't check specs as I don't have the model number.

However, what is the fan attached to? Is it the motor shaft? If so then the motor is running so if the pump isn't, there possibly is a linkage issue if it's direct drive.

Can you check that out and advise?

Cheers,

Bill

Problem with compressor
by: Bill

My Task Force oil free portabe 2 gallon 120 vac has always worked great. Yesterday the tank filled as normal. As pressure dropped, the compressor never came back on. The fan was running, but no compressor.

Thoughts??

Owner's Manual
by: C. Doss

I have a Task Force Air compressor, I believe it is 3pound capacity. I was wondering where I can find an owner's manual or instruction papers for this particular compressor. My email is caroldoss46@yahoo.com.
