C2006 compressor generates no pressure

by Brentwoodwalla

I have a Porter Cable C2006 with 150 PSI 6 gal compressor. It was purchased new few years ago but was used only once. So it was sitting in the basement for few years. When I turned it on, the motor ran with normal sound but the pressure meter needle didn't move at all. The drain valve was closed. What could be wrong?

C2006 will not build up to 150 psi
by: barnjoer

Mine would not shut off when reaching almost 150 psi. Put in new 150 psi pressure switch and no change. According to the gauge will reach about 146 PSI and will not ever turn off. I think it just will not build up to the 150 psi question how to fix this new rings?.

Could be a number of things. Most are covered on the troubleshooting pages on this site. See the pages about why compressors won't shut off or why they run and don't build pressure.
