Makita MAC2400 will not build pressure

by Ted Haase

Makita MAC2400 I was given this compressor, friend said the unloader tube and fitting that attaches the tube to the check valve was missing.


I ordered the two parts,replaced them.

The compressor runs but will not build pressure. If I block the end of the unloader tube the machine builds air,shuts off at about 130#'s and restarts at about 80#'s.

I see no reason for that unloader tube. What am I missing? Thank you,Ted

Check and see if the tank check valve is leaking.
