Q&A:

hammerandnails88 asked What is wrong with my Air compressor and if so, can I fix it myself? I really can’t afford a new one.?

Basically I have a Pancake Porter cable air compressor, the one that runs @90 PSI with a max of 150. Out of nowhere yesterday, the compressor motor just wouldnt stop running. The motor sounded fine and kept working but the pressure stayed at about 60 and took a really long time to even work up to that pressure. Its as if the motor is working just as hard as it normally does but the pressure doesnt go up at all. Has anyone else had this problem? And is there anyway to fix it myself? I have no major problems and I checked for leaks everywhere and there were none(i would notice them anyway). Please help! I cant frame a house working with 60 psi!!!

And got the following answer:

These air compressors use a diaphragm to compress the air. There is a good chance that the diaphragm developed a crack.
If you have the parts list, you should be able to order a new one. These compressors aren’t hard to work on, so to use a favorite saying of mine, it’s already broken, so if I work on it, the worst that can happen is that it will still be broken. Take it apart, and see if the diaphragm has a hole/crack.

Tim D asked What are the decent brand names for air compressors?

I’m looking to buy a used compressor from Craigslist. I see a lot of brands that I’ve never heard of. What brands are reputable? The only ones I recognize are Craftsman and Porter Cable.

And got the following answer:

Newer Craftsmen compressors have given me problems. (Loud, underpowered, cheap parts)

Porter Cable is decent, but I tend to think of them less powerful/smaller – better for a staple gun than an impact wrench.

look at Ingersol Rand – one name brand that has been in the air tool business for a long time. expensive, but seems to be of good quality.

in my experience you really do get what you pay for when it comes to an air compressor.

Look at SCFM instead of CFM

I’d build my own – 30 gallon tank, 5hp electric motor, compressor to match.

Michael asked Porter cable pancake compressor builds pressure until it blows pressure relief valve.?

If I stop the compressor at desired pressure it works fine but it wont restart on its own to stay in the desired pressure range. This gets very frustrating on any extended project. Anyone know the fix and is it easy?

And got the following answer:

You need a new pressure switch. The relief valve is working as it should otherwise your compressor would pump until it blew a line or the tank.
Your compressor pressure switch tells the motor when to shut off as the desired pressure is reached.
You need to find the model and type number on the compressor. Then call or go online to www. DeWALT.com. as DeWalt now owns Porter Cable and provides all parts for Porter Cable.
Or call the closest authorized repair center if you want to have it repaired by them.
Compressors tanks often become laden with water as some owners never drain the tanks. This can cause rusty,dirty buildup in the tank – which gets distributed into the metal air tubing and yes sometimes up into the pressure gauges and pressure switch, this can block the pressure switch part that senses pressure by blocking it up. Thus your pressure switch has no pressure being sensed so it tells the motor to keep running. Once you manually shut off the pump – it will not re-start because there is *head pressure* (too much pressure against the motor) to allow the motor to start up, until you pull pressure relief ring to let pressure off.

Furball asked Advice needed on air compressor malfunction?

I have a dual tank Porter Cable air compressor that I haven’t used for the past couple of years and today I turned it on to use the air hose and found that the automatic shut of doesn’t work anymore. Is it possible that after sitting for that long there is something sticking, or dust, dirt, or corrosion in the system? I’m completely ignorant about the auto shut off.
Any advice will be much appreciated.

And got the following answer:

The regulator is a combination of a mechanical device (a diaphragm) that moves when pressure is gained or lost within the tank.
At either extreme it will make the electric contact engage or disconnect (depending on the “cut in” and “cut out” settings).
Rough duty, shop conditions, corrosion, etc., can gum up the works of this device, and impede it’s operation, causing unsatisfactory performance.

On a job I just completed, a simple saturation of the internal parts of the regulator with WD40 did the trick, but if the contacts are ‘welded’ together (from arcing) then no matter what the diaphragm is calling for, it will continue to run.

Unplug the power cord & remove the regulator cover.
Examine the contact points to ascertain they are not welded together.
If that’s OK, then try the WD40 trick (be liberal with the coverage).
Manually operate the contacts and springs to assure free operation.
You can leave the cover off and re-plug the cord, then switch on the pump lever.
If it works- off ya’ go. Replace cover.
If it doesn’t, you may need a new regulator.
PC may have one for your model.

ADKstorm asked Air Compressor choosing help for using a framing nailer and other nailers?

I am a weekend do-it-yourselfer looking to buy an air compressor to aid in a project basement finishing of a 12’ x 12’ room. One tool I would like to use is a framing nailer with an air compressor to frame the partition walls. I really don’t want to spend a lot of money on a compressor. I have spoken to a tool manufacturer on their framing nailer and they keep saying they recommend an air compressor with 6 CFM @ 90 PSI. Doesn’t CFM mean the recovery rate of the compressor? If I have 90 PSI coming through the regulator then it should work fine right?

If I have to waiting a few minutes between shooting a half a dozen nails, its no big deal.
Would I be better with a 150 max PSI compressor or one that is 125 max PSI?

Compressor?
Porter Cable 150 max PSI, 6 gallon – 2.6 SCFM @ 90 PSI ($180 US, includes brad nailer)
or
Campbell Hausfeld 1.3 H.P. 125 max PSI, 15 gallon – 3.7 SCFM @ 90 PSI ($180 US)

Framing nailer?
Grizzly 21 degree round-head model #H7665 ($100 US)

Thanks!!!
Aussie, you sound like your giving me advice if I were a new contractor. I will only be using nailers …no wrenchs, grinders, or sprayers. I still consider CFM recovery….Is it not true that CFM is the flow of air into the tank that the compressor motor can produce? If so, CFM is only a term used when the compressor is running….when off, you simply have PSI until it lowers to the point that triggers the compressor on to repressurize the tank at the desinated flow rate (CFM). ……maybe I am wrong, but this seems to be logical. As I stated before, I have no problem waiting after every 1/2 dozen nails for the compressor to catch up. I’d rather do that than pay an arm and leg for one you suggest

And got the following answer:

I own the Porter Cable compressor you mention and it works fine with a framing nailer. It also is very portable which is a huge asset if you need to work on a different part of the house later. However, I find myself wishing I had a larger compressor with a higher scfm rating when I try to do other jobs like spraying or using mechanics air tools. If you really think you won’t need to do anything besides nailing get the smaller compressor. The porter cable brad nailer works fine as a bonus.

You are correct that the scfm rating is the recovery rate. If you have two units with equal sized tanks, the one with the higher scfm rating will fill its tank faster. 125 PSI is more than enough for any tool. The 150 PSI rating on some units helps the compressor to cycle less because it can store more air.
