Bostitch compressor has air leaking so bad it won't build over 20 lbs.
(Lake Charles, LA)
I have a bostitch cap60 compressor that is leaking air so bad it won't build over 20 lbs.
the leak is somewhere by where the rislan tube connects between the electrical cord. I suspected a crack on the pressure switch assembly, so I bought a whole new assembly.
After replacing complete assembly, I still have the same issue.i feel the air leak between the rislan tube and the cord. Any suggestions.
Eddie, try this.
Unplug the compressor, dump all of the air from the tank through the tank drain valve, find where the line from the pump head enters the tank, disassemble the line from the tank check valve there, and inspect / clean / test the tank check valve.
Reinstall. Start the compressor.
