691915 isn't increasing pressure when turned on?

by Miriam

My 20g pump isn't increasing pressure when turned on. Release valve is closed.


After tipping over and the air filter broke off, we replaced the filter. Now compressor won't increase pressure. Release valve is closed. Reset button just seems loose. What do I do next?

It's a mobile, upright tank. Model 691915 from Costco.

Have you taken the cover off? Do so if not.

"Reset button just seems loose." That's normal when it's not tripped.

My guess is the head cracked at the same time the filter broke - bad news.

But maybe you're lucky and it's just an external broken / cracked outlet tube or something.

Just look for stuff that doesn't "look right" for starters. Maybe send pix if you see something you're not sure of.

Good luck.
