Husky 32gal 1.7hp won't run under pressure
My compressor runs fine if I take off the fill tube that runs from the motor to the tank (check valve), but if when the fill line is attached it overheats and shuts off. I have to manually flip the switch and let it sit for 20 minutes or so before it turns back on.
It will build pressure to 150psi after multiple cycles of this with no leaks.. What things should I check?
Travis, your compressor motor doesn't like back pressure, the normal back pressure that builds as the pressure in the tank grows.
See the troubleshooting section on the site map page and the page about compressors that won't run too.
If the intake filter is clean, there is no huffing out the intake valve, there are no mechanical issues (valves failing) I suspect a run capacitor or a motor issue. See the electrical section for checking the cap.
unscrewed hose accidentally, can't screw back on
I accidentally unscrewed the hose from the tank, and it's not screwing back on. It's a 4 gallon tank.
Sage, is it a portable air tank you are talking about, or an air compressor?
I ask since if it is a portable tank, the hose may attach via a barbed connector secured by a gear clamp.
If it is an air compressor, I believe the air hose should have a connector on it that inserts into the coupler on the compressor.
So, I'm confused by the fact that, in either case, there should be no screwing on involved.
Want to try another post, and this time, add a couple of digital photos so I can see what's going on?
