New bostitch does not automatically turn back on?

Brand new bostitch 6 gal oil free air compressor doesnt automatically turn back on?


just bought a the Bostitch pancake compressor combo and fresh out of the box it turns on and builds pressure but does not automatically restart after regulated pressure is used.
________________
So, your compressor pumps up to xx pressure (what pressure is that, please), and you use some air, and the compressor doesn't turn back on?

What happens when you bleed the air in the tank down to zero PSI. Anything?

Assuming the pressure switch is set to run, watch and listen to the switch when you are bleeding the air pressure down. Does it do anything or make any sound?

Please post your response as a comment here so I can follow the thread on your Bostitch compressor issue.

Cheers,

Bill

I've got the same problem.
by: Rik

Mine is the 150 psi compressor, and it fills up to 150. But once I go through a few nails, the pressure has dropped...sometime to about 125. The compressor won't kick on to get back to 150.

What I have to do is release the hose and reattach it. Every time, it fills back up to 150.

About to do some trim 20' off the ground, and either I'm going to get a great climbing workout or I need to get another compressor.

I have a Stanley Bostich Air compressor that will not restart. I run off pressure and it will not start until I turn the pulley then it will kick on. Pressure switch?

Thanks

Probably not. If the unloader valve is unloading at cut out, then check your power supply, then your start cap would be what I would check next.

CAP-60P-OF will not build pressure

by Jeff Smith
(Mt Ulla, NC, USA)

Bostitch air compressor model CAP2060P

Bostitch air compressor model CAP2060P

I have a Bostitch CAP60P-OF, will not build much pressure past 20 psi, runs forever.

I removed the pump head & intake valve, look good to my knowledge, reassembled and same issues.

I also removed the aluminum tube and used another air source and pumped air directly into the tank at the check valve, pressure went up as expected. I then removed the aluminum tube, and I could hold my finger over the exit port indefinitally.

I would like to know the possible cause, and where I can purchase a rebuild kit. Thanks for the help, Jeff Smith

Hello Jeff... from the sounds of it your compressor valves are compromise, you may have a piston seal wear issue, or you may have a gasket that lets go at 20 PSI, and instead of air going into the tank with force, as soon as there is back pressure, the air simply cycles inside the pump.

As to parts, if you search "compressor parts for Bostitch CAP60P-OF" as I just did, you will find a number of sources.

Cheers,

Bill

bostich pancake compressor overheating

My bostich pancake compressor is overheating before reaching max pressure.
__________________
Jerry, is it taking longer to build pressure than before? If so, then the possible reason the air compressor motor is overheating is that it is running too long. It's possibly running too long as it has a mechanical pump issue that is slowing the pressure build in the tank to the point that the motor overheats before the pressure switch can shut off the compressor.

See the troubleshooting section on the sitemap page and follow the links to the page with more info about that.

Complaint - Will not hold pressure

by Bill M
(Peotone, IL)

Will not hold pressure. ...maxes out at 60psi
___________________
Bill, it won't hold pressure, or it won't build pressure past the 60 PSI point?

In other words, does the compressor stop at 60 PSI, or does it continue to run even though your tank pressure doesn't build further?

If the first, then I'd look to the pressure switch.

If it is the second, see Troubleshooting on the sitemap page, and read the page about why air compressors run but don't build pressure.

Comment here with your findings if you wish to.

Cheers,

Bill
