Tool Mate Expert Model no. 2065/8 air compressor only going to 30psi

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

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?

See the troubleshooting section on the sitemap pages for links to pages with more things to check.

Bill

Does anyone know where to get this alloy gasket between the valves?

I have been working with these compressors for years, it is the aluminium gasket between the plates holding the valves
