How to remove the bottom screws - Husky 20 gal comp

by Boyd

How to remove the bottom screws from the plastic cover of a Husky 20 gal comp. They seem to go all the way through. One side has a slotted nut and the other side seems to be a round head. I fashioned a screw driver to fit the slotted nut, but I can't figure how to hold the other side to keep it from turning My email address is Brobin2981@aol.com

Well, it wasn't as hard as I thought. After I finally got it apart I found that the heads I thought were round were actually nut heads. Putting it back together won't as hard

H1506F - How to replace the pressure switch - Husky H1506F Air Compressor

by Scott
(Haslett, MI)

I need to replace the pressure switch on my husky h1506f air compressor. But i can not figure out how to get the top cover off. Seems stupid, but I can not figure out what kind of screw/bolts are holding it on? There are four of them, and I have tried long allen wrenches with no luck, they are not easy to get to. Any advice would be appreciated.

husky vertizonal - disassembling compressor pump - how to vent air

by Talon
(Texas)

I have a husky vertizonal compressor from which I wish to remove the pump and disassemble it. My question is this: how can I know whether there is trapped inside the cylinder residually dangerous air pressure before I begin to disassemble the pump, or is this even an issue? Given such a possibility, is there a way to drain the latent pressure from the cylinder before attempting any disassembly?

Thank you for your time and courtesy.

_________________________

Talon, excellent question, and one that hasn't been asked before, I don't think! :-)

If the compressor unloader valve is operational, and if the compressor has been running to normal cut out pressure and stops on it's own, then the air that might be trapped over the piston should be vented when the compressor stops. When you drain the tank, there should be no air left in the tank or over the piston.

To be doubly sure, open the line between the top of the pump and the tank. You will likely have to do that anyway, and in so doing you are going to vent any air that may be trapped over the piston.

When you have loosened the fitting nut, if there is air trapped, you may have a bit of a struggle getting the tubing disconnected, as any air pressure there will make this process a bit difficult. The volume of air is almost inconsequential at this point, and as long as the tube isn't pointed at someone's eye, if there is air trapped, it will only be a bit and vent virtually instantly.

Cheers, and it is always good to be careful!

Bill
