Tool Mate Expert Model no. 2065/8 air compressor only going to 30psi
by chris hariington
Hi Bill. I have a 200L 3Hp belt driven air compressor Make, Tool Mate Expert Model no. 2065/8.
The machine is only 1 and half years old with very little done.
It does pump up to 30 psi very slowly and doesn't seem to want to go any higher while the motor and pump keep running.
there are no leaks and the the air intake filter is clean. it sucks the air into intake fine .
a little bit of pressure does come out the oil fill cap when opened and builds up if i put my finger on it for about 20sec.. I'm think it may not be a little problem and nothing seems to help it.
What do you think.. Thanks so much
Chris, on a list of likely culprits I would add piston seals, and pressure valves.
If you can feel air blowing out of the oil fill tube then you have compressed air bypassing the piston seals.
Good that it's pulling air in, but is any getting out?
