TA-2530B Husky air compressor won't build up past 40 psi
(Lebanon, Ohio, USA)
TA-2530B air compressor
TA-2530B Husky air compressor. The compressor will not build pressure past 40 psi. The motor continues to run.
The regulator will only adjust from 0-40 psi.
All water has been drained from the tank. Removed the air intake filter and covered the opening with my hand and felt suction. With air filter in place sometimes it felt like air was coming out of the intake holes. The compressor is only used occasionally to fill mower tires, blow off chainsaws and remove mower blades.
Husky TA-2530B lack of pressure
Husky TA-2530B air compressor
I have a Husky TA-2530B compressor which runs fine but only builds up around 50 psi. I also noticed a drop in the noise level. I have taken the cylinder head off and cleaned the valve assembly which doesn't appear to be damaged. There are no leaks anywhere although air is coming from the hole in the oil filler cap and it seems to be coming from the air intake filter.
I'm at a loss. The unit is in very good condition only 2 years old.
Husky 7 hp 60 gallon won't shut off at preset pressure
I have a 7hp 60 gallon Husky that won't shut off.
When I originally picked it up, I couldn't stand it upright, so I pulled the pump off the compressor body so that it would stay upright and carried the rest laying down.
When I tried it at its original location, it filled with pressure just fine and shut off properly.
Once I got it to my house, I put the pump back onto the compressor body, lining everything up with a new belt.
I kicked it on and it pumped but didn't want to shut off.
I have since pulled the check valve to find it pretty much obliterated. I replaced it and rechecked the operation.
It still builds up to 135 psi like it should but won't shut off.
When it reached 90 psi, which is the on pressure, it bogged down, then again when it hit ~135. I shut off the switch because I didn't want to tempt fate. After reading more, I picked up a pressure switch. I couldn't get the one rated 90-135 like was originally on the compressor, but got a 90-125 with the same specs. 10 psi isn't going to kill me.
I installed it and turned it back on.
It still builds pressure properly with the bogging down but won't shut off. I have used a wired 220 30amp cord to a socket on the wall. Originally at the location I picked it up from, it was wired directly to the breaker.
I'm not sure where to go from here. Any assistance is appreciated.
Ed, you've done pretty much everything right.
Let me ask you, you say it bogs at 135 PSI, but doesn't shut off. Are you saying that the pressure in the tank (seen via the tank gauge) gets to 135 PSI and stays there?
If so, then I suspect the pressure switch is not "seeing" the pressure it needs to trip and shut off power.
That being the case, one of the first things is to re & re the tank check valve. You have done that.
Next, since I don't know if this compressor is near new, try running it without the intake filter on to see if that has any bearing on the operation of the compressor.
Assuming that the power supply is good as you say, and that there are no issues with the motor failing, then the next thing that I would think needed addressing would be the valves, both intake, and pressure. That means a tear down, unfortunately.
Keep me posted, will you?
