Extremely long run times and trouble building pressure

I have had my Husky 30 gallon compressor (C303h) for a little more than a year and a half now. It has served me fine for the most part, sometimes its a bit under powered but nowhere near bad enough to slow down a job significantly.


Recently I noticed it taking longer and longer to build to its max pressure and cut off, even when no air is being used.

A week or two later I noticed that it seemed like it was also taking a long time to actually start running while air is being used. It begins to run in a normal fashion (motor starting) however it is the time it takes to realize that it needs to start airing up again that has gotten longer.

Now it takes so long to fill that I'm not even willing to waste the electricity to see how long it would take to build to its max pressure.

C303h taking a long time to fill

Compressor taking a long time to fill is one concern, typically caused by one of three issues.

Not restarting when the pressure drops below normal cut in is another issue entirely.
