Repair Shop Crisis

My husky 2 gallon air compressor is broken. I don't know where to find a repair shop. Do you know any good repair shops in GTA?

Hmmmm, the list linked from REPAIR SHOPS doesn't help? :-)

Seriously, though. Consider the price you paid for your air compressor, think of a shop rate of what, $60 -$70 / hr, plus parts? Ask yourself if the compressor has enough value in it to offset the cost of using a repair shop to fix.

Two of the "hidden costs" of cheap DIY type air compressors is that if may cost more to fix them than they are worth and often there are no spare parts.

Good luck,

Bill

huskey motor runs but no air

I have a huskey 8 gall compressor the motor runs but the tank is not getting any air? Suggestions

Jose... no air, where? Are you saying that there is no pressure buildup in the tank when the motor is running?

Can you hear the pump running?

If the motor is running and the compressor pump is actually working, then, I suggest you go to the TROUBLESHOOTING page and click the link to "will not build pressure" for some ideas about what to look for.

After doing the checks, if no success, post here telling us what you've done, and we'll dig a bit deeper into your compressor problem.

Cheers,

Bill

husky 1.8hp compressor upgrade?

i have a husky 1.8hp 26gal compressor and want to know if its possible to upgrade to a larger motor for more torque

If you replace your electric compressor motor with a larger HP motor, if it runs at the same RPM as the one you replace, you will not see any improvement in air flow.

If you change to a higher speed motor, or change the sheaves to increase the speed of the pump, you will, in all likelihood, damage or destroy the pump.

You may need a larger air compressor, or another air compressor in tandem, to supply the flow of compressed air, at the pressure you need.

Cheers,

Bill
