Husky pro compressor Model VT6315 Auto shut off leaks air

by Johnny
(Florida)

I have a Husky pro upright air compressor 30gal 2.5 motor model number VT6315. Starts fine and shuts off like it is suppose to, but it blows air out underneath the switch box, like its over fill and starts up again. I assume that its the pressure switch, but not sure. Any advice before I start wasting money on different parts?

Johnny, check out the page on tank check valves.

I suspect that this is your compressor problem.

Had the same problem. However...

I think you might need a new unloader valve. I have the same model. And that's how my problems with it first started.

Chances are you may also need a check valve. And I'd also consider replacing the PRV (pressure relief valve).

The unloader valve is connected to and under the pressure switch. It can be twisted off without taking the pressure switch off.

Hope this helps. -Mike

Husky HL540200 won't pump up to pressure

by Emmett Weiss
(Ft. Collins, CO USA)

The pump worked fine all day. The next day it would only pump to about 100psi and continue to run. It wont reach cut out pressure
_____________________
Well Emmett, the first check I do when this happens, providing that I haven't noticed anything in particular changing on the Husky compressor when it stops building pressure, is to pull the intake filter and feel if air is being drawin in when the compressor is running, or is it huffing out? If the latter, that indicates that the compressor pump intake valve is failing.

See the troubleshooting section for information about other things to check when an air compressor runs but will not build pressure, and then comment here with your findings, if you wish.

Cheers,

Bill

tank not filling up with air

by Linda McNie
(Davie Fl.)

My tank pressure and outlet pressure gauges are not showing any
air pressure therefor my staple gun won't work. Any suggestions
I worked fine the last time I used it.

Things like Husky air compressor model number, how old, lots of use or little, that sort of thing.

I take it the air compressor is running?

Check to see if the tank drain is open and bleeding air out of the tank as fast as the pump is pushing it in. Make sure that the tank drain is closed.

If it is closed already then see the troubleshooting section for tips on what to look for when a compressor runs and won't build pressure, and add a comment here telling us what you found if you wish.

Used Husky 22 Gallon 5 HP Air Compressor manual and info

by Rick
(St Pierre Manitoba)

Hi. I just purchased a used 22 Gallon 5 HP Husky Air Compressor. It is like new and has not been used much at all.

The numbers I found on the front are DK706800AV 8/02. What I really need is the manual and any maintenance information that would be specific to this model. Can you help?
__________________
It would have been good if you'd uploaded a few photos, as I cannot find anything relating to the numbers you provided on line.

I'm curious... is this a 120 volt or 240 volt compressor? If 120 volts, then there is no way that you are getting 5 HP output, as the amp draw would be in the 40+ range while it is running, and likely higher at start up.

Happy to post this for you, and I hope some folks can provide information as a comment here, Rick.

Cheers,

Bill
