decibel level of a husky pro 30 gallon air compressor

by Henry Trost

what is the decibel level of a husky pro 30 gallon air compressor. We are planning for a sound enclosure, and need to know the spec levels.

Thanks.

Henry, I reviewed the manual and, unfortunately, the Db level is not listed.

Maybe some else knows this?

Or, contact Campbell Hausfeld whom are, I believe, the manufacturers of this compressor.

Cheers,

Bill

Husky compressor starts fine, then bogs down

by Steve

My 1 year old Husky compressor, 30 gal vertical has been running perfect until a week ago. Mind you it get used about once a week.

Starts out perfect, nears 50psi and slows to the point it won't build pressure and the belt slips.

Could be a bunch of things, Steve.

Intake filter clean?

Good power supply, nothing pulling power from the same circuit and not using an extension cord?

As the pressure in the tank grows, so too does the load on the motor. They are designed to overcome that increasing load, but not if something else is adding to it as well. We need to find out what that other thing is.

If it is not what I have mentioned, see the site map page, look under the Troubleshooting category, and follow the links that apply.

Cheers,

Bill

new 60 gal husky air comp. turns on, build 10psi and stops

Hi there, Jorge.

Please unplug it, drain the air tank to zero.

Remove the cover of the pressure switch, being very careful in that there are electrically live connections inside.

Plug in your air compressor again, and watch the internals of the pressure switch as air pressure begins to rise in the tank.

The pressure switch should have already tripped to on when you drained the tank. Therefore, power should be flowing to the motor as soon as you plug your air compressor in. The pressure switch should not need to do anything at this point.

When the pressure in your air tank reaches the factory cut out setting of your switch, then it should trip to turn the compressor motor off, by interrupting the electrical flow to the motor through the pressure switch.

If, in your case, the pressure switch trips to off at 10 PSI, and the compressor stops, then it is likely you have a problem with your pressure switch and if it were me, I would take the air compressor back, and say give me a new one that works.

Cheers,

Bill

WL651004AJ Motor seems to be overheating.

by maint help

We have a Husky Model# WL651004AJ. When completely cold Compressor runs to shut-off pressure of 150# (pressure switch opens) As air is used pressure switch closes again and 120v going to motor, however it will not run again for a period of time. It seems to be overheating. Are there any overloads to check, or replace? Any suggestions?
___________________
Is this a new characteristic of your air compressor?

What are you using the air for, and how long are you running the compressor before the issue manifests itself?

Assuming no change in operating conditions (use time, wiring, source of power etc., then I would check the run caps next.

The use is mainly occasional Bicycle or auto tire inflation. Normally run time no more than 15 minutes (assuming air in 4 tires)and only a few times a month. The power source is 120v and polarity is correct as checked with "Fluke" voltage tester. You spoke of "run caps". Where might I find them?

See the pages on capacitors on this site, including how to test them. They are typically on the side of the motor.
