Hi John... there could be many reasons why your air compressor runs but won't make air.

I've put together a page about those. Go to the troubleshooting section on the sitemap page, and follow the link to why compressors run but don't build pressure.

After reading the info, do what checks you can, and then, as a comment here, tell me what you found.
