metalwarrior Posted January 26, 2008 Report Share Posted January 26, 2008 I have a Powerbase air compressor which is pretty similar to this one: http://www.autobarn.com.au/products/15/198/4112873 It should get the air inside the tank to about 120psi before it shuts itself off, but it stops increaseing pressure at 30psi and never shuts off. It just started doing this recently, before now it has worked quite well. I don't use it that much and it is about 3 years old. Sometimes I leave it with air in the tank rather than emptying it out and opening the tank drain valve. I have checked and there are no obvious leaks that I can hear. The filter looks like it is still in good shape, and it has enough oil in it still. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this to happen or what I might do to fix the problem?
