Replacement pressure switch for 47065

by Lee williams
(Pitkin la)

Dropped compressor and broke the pressure switch. Wher to get one?

Lee, it doesn't have to be an OEM switch.

With the power off open the switch cover and note the position of the wires. I often take a digital picture of what wires go where.

Then, remove the switch and take it with you to the local compressor store. I suspect you will find a similar model there.

Make sure that if yours has the internal unloader you get one with that feature, and the same for the external unloader.

Cheers,

Bill

Parts needed - dipstick and gaskets

by Al Meyer
(Grand Isalnd NY)

I need 2 parts for the Oil Cover Part number 16B and a Dip stick part number 14B, these numbers are right from the manual I see from the other post the Dip Stick Is Discontinued, I can manage But I really need a Gasket or a solution for one I've tried different Liquid gasket material to No success
Thanks

Al, some folks have had success acquiring high-heat gaskets from automotive supply outlets, and cutting them to suit.

If the manual tells you the volume of oil that you add to the sump when you first fill it, if you drain the oil and then fill it with that volume, you can then use a dip stick from any compressor, and make your own mark on it when the sump is full, based on the original volume added.

Make sure any dipstick you use has a vented cap.

Where is the drain on the 47065

by Janet
(Texas)

In the manual it shows that it's part 10A and is under the front of the tank between the wheels...there is NO drain in this location. Can someone tell me where the drain is?
Thanks a bunch,
Janet

Hi Janet... the tank drain on compressor tanks is almost always located at the lowest point in the tank, so gravity can bring the water to that point for draining.

All the images I've seen show a tank drain on the bottom of the tank, so I'm puzzled as to why yours doesn't have one.

Could you, perhaps, take a digital photo of the bottom of your tank from a couple of different angles, and start a new thread with the question at which point you can upload the photos too so we can have a look?

Model 47065 pops internal breaker switch?

by Ray
(Dayton, OH)

Bill,

My Central Pneumatic air compressor Model 47065 will run a few seconds and pump air into the tank and click off the breaker switch.

After it sits for a few seconds and resets I can click it on for another few seconds and it will click off the motor again.

I have checked the capacitors and they show a gradual increase in resistance. The main breaker to the plug has not kicked off and I have had this compressor in place for some time. What is the problem?

P.S.- I have read many of the other posts and the only thing left seems to be the motor. It will eventually, after reseting the breaker, pump air until the pressure switch kicks the motor off normally.

Ray, does it exhibit the same symptoms with the tank pressure at zero PSI as well as with air in the tank?

Yes, Bill. The compressor can be empty or pressurized and it will run a few seconds and shut off the internal breaker. I'll wait a few seconds to reset and turn it on again only for it to quit in a few seconds.

Thanks,
Ray

Ray, I can't remember if you checked the capacitors yet? If not, you should do so. If they check out, then as far as I'm concerned, you have a motor problem, and need to get that checked next.

Pressure or no.
by: Ray

Yes, Bill, the tank can be near full pressure or empty and motor will kick off after a few seconds.
