clarke air compressor 20 lbs max pressure

I have a small clarke air compressor. It will pump up to 20 lbs of pressure and continue running but won't go over 20 lbs. If I shut off the compressor it will maintain the 20 lbs so there are no leaks. Any suggestions. Thanks. Daryl

Yup, see the troubleshooting pages for info about air compressors that run but don't build pressure.

There are a host of issues that could cause this, though many times it comes down to the pump valves or gaskets.

Once you read the info, if you have a specific question, please post a comment here.

Cheers,

Bill
