Acceptable recharge rate for Husky Y6010?

What is typical/acceptable recharge rate for Husky Y6010?


I just drained my 25-gal tank and put a timer on its recharge. I want to know if these are within a typical or acceptable performance, or should I consider a gasket/piston/sleeve rebuild?

In my timed refill these were some of the time-hacks:

1:00 = 20lbs
2:00 = 42lbs
3:30 = 50lbs
4:30 = 60lbs
6:00 = 70lbs
>8:00 = 80lbs

Otherwise, the compressor holds air well over long periods of time (as long as a hose isn't attached).

Your numbers suggest piston or valve blow by to me.

The PSI won't be perfectly linear, but you're seeing a dramatic drop after 40. Which reminds me that we've seen bad head gaskets cause this, too.

So, look at the recall and maybe that will solve your problem. If not, then the pages on not building pressure.

Good luck, and keep us posted, would you?

I think that it would be good to look at this site: https://www.cpsc.gov/Recalls/2011/devilbiss-recalls-air-compressors-due-to-fire-hazard .

Your Husky compressor Y6010 appears to be under recall.

As to the recharge rate, it seems unreasonably long to me, suggesting that the compressor needs maintenance.

Compressor that run and don't build sufficient pressure have a page in the troubleshooting section, relating things to check.
