3Z355G has loud knocking noise

by Jerry

My compressor from time to time will start making a loud knocking sound like metal hitting metal. It does build pressure & fills the tank but I would like to do a very minimal rebuild on the compressor. Can't find any rebuild kits/parts or rebuild manual. What can you suggest the problem may be & how can I fix it. Thanks!

Ouch! A full rebuild or did you junk it?

I had that happen to my compressor. The screws for the pump valve came off, fell into the cylinder, and then pushed up and cracked my compressor pump head.

compressor knocking...

Could be the pump.

But (and I'm guessing here it's a pump driven by a belt) check that the belt tension is OK, and that the sheaves are tight on their shafts. Not to mention the pump and motor secured.
