Broken reed valve
by: Anonymous

I have the same 2 hp 8 gal 125 psi central pneumatic compressor with the same low pressure build up problem.

I finally broke down the cylinder head and discovered a broken reed valve. It is on top of the valve plate between the plate and some kind of holding bracket held down with 2 screws.

So far can't find a replacement for it yet but thought this might your problem as well.

Best thing you can do koty is visit the troubleshooting pages on this site, the one about air compressors that don't build air pressure, and have a look at the things that page says to check.

Then, post a comment here telling us what you found.
