My aircompressior hits 60 pounds and the tank takes in no more air but the motor and the pump still runs could there be fluid in the compressor
_________________
BJ, if you can't feel suction at the intake port, then it is likely a valve issue. The other common issue is a gasket that lets go at a certain pressure, in your case 60 PSI, and instead of going into the tank, the compressed air cycles back and forth inside the pump.

How are you defining this... "the tank takes in no more air" by the fact the gauge does not change or have you actually checked the intake?

Dewalt d55146 will not build pressure
by: Anonymous

Hello. Compressor only reaches 180/200 psi and wont shut off or get any higher than 180psi. Sorta stuck in the middle of a job and have no money. I was running it in the below freezing weather so who knows. Any advice would be great, thanks!

See the troubleshooting section, the link to why air compressors run but don't build air pressure for some things to check.

Good luck.

K, did you do the checks referred to on the page linked from the Troubleshooting section of the site map?

It is difficult to know where to begin when I don't know where your air compressor is, in terms of diagnosis.

Do you have power, for example?

Maybe you could check the things referred to on the page, and then comment here with results? Then we can tackle the things that you haven't checked.

Cheers,

Bill

D55155 compressor has air leaking at end of regulator weep holes

by Mark
(Baton Rouge, la)

I took apart the regulator for a D55155 compressor, cleaned it and put it back together. The regulator knob was hard to turn.

Got it unfrozen and put everything back together.

Now I am getting air leaking out at the two small holes near the end of the regulator knob and I am not sure if I put it back together right.

This is the sequence I reinstalled, is it correct/
put small spring in with large end first. installed regulating plug next with the small end of the star shaped plug fitting in the small end of the spring. inserted diaphram shaft into regulating plug and made sure it moved in/out. installed white gasket. installed big spring and then screwed on plastic regulating knob.
Thanks for the help....Mark

Mark, I would suspect a diaphragm leak.

I hope someone who has rebuilt this particular regulator can advise as to the rebuild sequence.
