Husky 2 Stage 80 Gal Has Compression in Sump

by John
(Allentown,PA)

Bought a Used 80 Gal 2 stage Husky compressor (Campbell Hausfeld) im told makes them, its from 2004 and it runs fins and makes compressed air but also blows the little plastc breather cap out of the tube when it runs a bit.


Since its making compressed air is it seals going bad? Or Too much oil?

Model # is TF291201AJ BUILT 2004

John, possible too much oil, can't tell you from here.

But, the oil sump cap should have a vent in it to allow air in, and in your case, air out.

If the outflow of air from the sump is substantial, to me, that indicates that the piston seals are leaking.

Cheers,

Bill

John, that's often the case. Compressors are really cheap these days, and the people that fix 'em and stock parts a high inventory cost need to make a living too. That is, unfortunately, the reality of a low up-front-cost air compressor. Good luck.

John, Husky has many different compressor models, shapes and sizes. They are not all alike.

Zip over the the troubleshooting section on the site map page, and click the appropriate links to see what things you can check as to why your air compressor won't run.

After doing these, if not relief yet, please post that info here as a comment.

Cheers,

Bill
