Porter Cable c2002 compressor short cycling
by Clarence McMahan
(Strafford, MO USA)
I have a porter cable 6-gallon pancake compressor c2002. As I'm using the tank, most of the time it works fine, kicking on at 120 lbs and off at 150 lbs. But, sometimes it will kick on at 120 lbs and off at 125 lbs, and keep cycling like that till I turn it off and dump some pressure (say to 90 lbs), then the compressor will start cycling normal again, only to start that short cycling again later on. Got any ideas??
My C2002 porter cable compressor will not shut off
I have a C2002 porter cable compressor that continues running, I have replaced the check valve, installed a regulator kit and replaced the pressure switch.
If I set the regulator at 80lbs it continues to run past 120 lbs never to shut off.
I always have pressure and it will hold its pressure forever.
When I use it I shut the compressor on and off manually.
Model C2002 keeps turning on and off
Have a Porter Cable model C2002. Runs up to set pressure then turns off as it should. After a few seconds it starts again and runs for a few seconds and then shuts off. This sequence continues even though no air is being consumed. Compressor gets very hot when this is happening. There are no air leaks. Any suggestions and where can I source parts near Ottawa Ont? Thanks
