Charge Air Pro Information
It appears as though Charge Air Pro air compressors were manufactured by Ingersoll Rand between 1983 and 1991. If you have one of these air compressors, know that there was an official recall of them. You might want to look into that.
It also looks like more recently Charge Air Pro air compressors were a brand of DeVilbiss Air Power Company of Jackson, Tennessee, who are also now supplying and private labeling some Porter Cable, Craftsman, Husky and other brands of air compressors.
Charge Air Pro compressors are still being sold, but as rebuilt or well used, but not new as far as we can find.

I have a charge air pro model ac-0171 the compressor has locked up . Are rebuild parts available if so is it something that is relatively easy to do? Or what should I replace it with?
I have a 1RL 6560V 60gal 6.5 hp

I need a head gasket for a Charge Air Pro 6.5 hp 20 gallon compressor. Is this available?
Need replacement pump for Charge Air Pro IRL6560V 6.5HP on 60 GAL tank. Pump AC-0171 as shown on the tank. The bottom of the pump shows DAC-277 YD/C 2. It is an aluminum pump. Any help would be appreciated
Yeah, They don’t make those any longer.
You’re sure you need the whole pump?
There a few possible replacements out there, but you’ll want to check measurements to see it’ll fit.
Thank you. It is locked up. I let the grease worms eat it.
Although it’s said the bearings are NLA, you might pull them to see if maybe they’really some stock thing…anyway, good luck with it.
I have a charge air pro 5hp , 60 gal, upright I got new in 1988 never had any kind of problem or break down, its all original and is still working just getting a little tired, I cant complain on it, it has alot of use and hours on it still runs good,
Maybe you could give Sharon (below) an idea…
Can I please have your number. I need gaskets. Thanks
My husband had a Charge Air Pro… I have no idea how old it is.. was wondering what a good price would be to sell it??I have. Picture of it.,
I have a Charge Air by Ingersoll-Rand model #IR330E2D. Says it is oilless but recently got tipped over and oil ran out from somewhere. where would the oil have come from and also where can i find an owners manual.
Sorry. If you tried to find it on the internet, you probably failed, as did I.
If you posted pix, they didn’t make it. If the pix have a chance, you’ll see a thumbnail of it after sending.
the oil came from the compressor,there is a sight glass on the side where you can see how much oil to add
I have the devilbliss charge air pro model# IRFB5021-WK Looking for the owners manual and can not find this specific one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
Looks fairly conventional. Did you want the manual for a specific purpose?
They often aren’t very informative.
I have a Devilbiss Air Power Company Charge Air Pro 80 gal Air Compressor Model IRC5K80V1MD 5HP AT 230 VOLTS, runs 3510 RPM.
I am just wanting to know the year of this compressor. I am looking to rebuild the compressor # AEF-459.
the electric motor is from MARATHON ELECTRIC WAUSAU.WISCONSIN 64401 . MODEL ZVK184TCDR7819BE.
If there was any way to find this out it would be great and I’m looking for a rebuild kit for the pump.
There may be a year on the tank – either stamped directly or on a welded tag.
Could you send a pic or three of the pump?
I have a Charge Air Compressor Model No. 4B50E 60B. It will not pump past 120 lbs.The pressure switch is set for 125 lbs cut off. What do I need to fix my problem.
So, the compressor runs and runs, yes? Or, does it stop at 120PSI?
It runs and runs
Well Jerry, if there are no leaks preventing the tank pressure from reaching the cut out pressure and allowing the compressor to stop, then I’m afraid it’s likely a pump problem. If you navigate over to the troubleshooting page and scroll down it, you’ll find a number of pages that deal with this issue. Please provide a comment with the results of your checks when you have a moment.
I Hard wired from breaker box approximately 3foot run for a 6.5 horse motor. The motor is setup is 4 straight screws across top and the ground below. The motor is wired to the 2 inside screws and ground in 1 hole below. Do I wire the 2 hot on each side of the motor wires ? Also I have a 2nd ground as I made my common wire an additional ground can I attach both in some spot?
Got it running like a champ

The hots are coming from a 2 pole 30amp breaker (230v motor). Im sorry I should have said this is a sub panel box in my garage ran from the house box. It only has 1 buss bar in it. That’s why I chose to run the white common as a ground. It is in its own slot And the green ground is its own. My question came up because I don’t know what to do with 2 grounds, as there is only 1 space open at the compressor. I appreciate your help…
OK. But you really should disconnect the white neutral from the compressor. If you have other circuits for 120, you can use white neutral on those, although depending on where you are, you may need a separate neutral bar to be code compliant.
I have an I/R 2 hp compressor that is wired to run off a 110v supply. How can I reword it to run off of a 220v supply?
Can you see the motor information plate? Does it indicate that the motor is rated for 120 / 240 V? If so, the wiring diagram to make it run on 240V is likely on that, or behind that, or behind the wiring hatch on the motor plate. Please check and advise, Chris.
