Jotge, if you bought it at Harbor Freight, ask them where they get their compressors fixed when they are still under warranty. That's the place to go.

It would sure help if you have the manual and the parts list to identify the part you need.

One source may be (and also the source for the photo of the CP 38898 photo) is: www.aircompressorpartsonline.com

Failing that, if you have the seal, any auto parts stores around that might have comparable seals?

Good luck.

Model 38898 will only pump up to 60 PSI?

Central Pneumatic air Compressor # 38898 - only pump up. 60 lb. - will not shut down

I have had This Air Compressor for about 5 Years, It only has about 10 hours of running time on it.

Worked Great until today, now It will only Pump up to Apox. 60 lb. and will not shut down until you turn it off at the Switch.

What may be wrong ?

Harry, if the pressure in the tank won't reach the cut out pressure setting of the pressure switch, then your compressor will keep running until it goes off on motor thermal overload, or the compressor fails electrically or mechanically.

There a number of issues that relate to this problem, and all are covered on this site.

The first check I always do is to pull off the intake filter, and while the compressor is running, feel the intake port to be sure that the compressor is actually pulling in air. This simple test will diagnose an intake valve problem if the air intake flow is very low, or if air is huffing back out of this port.

Then, if you visit the troubleshooting page (link on the nav bar) and follow the Will not build pressure link you can review it to see if any of the issues noted there are reflected on your air compressor.

If you have more specific questions about what you found, please post them as a comment here so I can follow the thread.

Cheers,

Bill
