Sears Craftsman 6 horse 60 gallon compressor won't hold...
I have a Sears Craftsman 6 horse 60 gallon compressor won't hold pressure. It runs but i will not hold pressure while I'm using it
My first thought is that your air using appliance is using more air than the compressor can produce.
A 6HP compressor motor should generate around 24 CFM of compressed air at about 90 PSI.
What air tool are you using, and what is it's demand in terms of CFM and pressure usage?
Sears air compressor only fills to 25PSI
Why does my sears air compressor only fill to 25 lbs?
Howdy, and how's things in Parry Sound?
A bit more information would be useful.
What is the motor HP of the unit?
When the pressure in the tank gets to 25 PSI, does the compressor stop or does it keep running?
Does it continue to run after reaching 25 PSI and the air pressure doesn't increase?
If you could give me a bit more information, I would be pleased to try and help you pinpoint the problem.
My initial response is to suggest, without having full information, that it might be your pressure switch that's causing the problem.
Give me some more info, OK?
