Drive belt and piston ring
Carefully remove cover, bag your screws, remove air hose connection to ease cover removal.Remove fan noting that screw is allen head and turns opposite direction to loosen . Now loosen allen head holding AB-A810100 piston to bearing ,slide off bearing gently. Remove and replace belt . Note that belt will be tough to get on ,you need good strength to rotate belt on but it will go. Now to replace piston you've got to pull front of head cover . Remove lines from side of head/pump ,you can leave muffler on. Front cover has thin metal gaskets install over compression holes, so lift this front cover assy carefully . You will need to get piston cylinder ring removed as it is in the rear of the cover assembly. This cover assembly will pry apart with a little but do not use big pliers and large screwdriver . Use something very narrow and do not push in hard to separate assembly . Note where all metal gaskets go . Take your time with this and maybe take a couple pictures and use care when reassembly. Remove piston sleeve, to aid in sliding piston and AB-9040019 Piston Ring into sleeve, slightly tilt and slide at an angle. Reassemble slowly and do not super torque anything but do tighten down. good luck,you will do fine.

Question: M5 NUT REMOVAL

MRANHHOA

HOW DOES THIS NUT COME OFF, I TRIED A SCREW DRIVER BUT THE HOLE THING JUST TURNS.
jg2259
Question: Bostich Cap2000p

jg2259

My compressor will not shut off. It builds and holds pressure, but when it gets to the cut-off point, it will not shut off and gets incredibly hot.

I checked all the fittings with soapy water, and there are no leaks, however, I did not take off the cover to check internal fittings for leaks. But, I cannot hear any leaks internally when I shut off the compressor with max air in tank.

I am assuming that my problem is the pressure switch but I'm not sure with all the other parts, that it may be something else.

Thank you for your help.

There has been a couple of cases where the contacts in the pressure switch have burnt and prevented the pressure cam from opening the circuit when the pressure reaches its link removed that case the pressure switch has to be replaced.Hope that helps.Good luck.

Hi,
Is the new belt the same size as the old belt.They used two different pumps on that compressor.One pump has a small air filter on top of the pump cylinder head and the older pump has it on the piston as the air is drawn from under the piston.which pump do you have?

The belt number for the OL195 pump is AB-9075047 which is for the first generation pump.The OL197 takes the AB-9075316.

Question: How To Reply Pressure Reducer

How do you replace the pressure reducer on the Bostich 2000 P-OF air compressor?
Tinkerdave
Reply: How To Reply Pressure Reducer

Tinkerdave

Hi dustyiniowa,
Well if you have one of the many pressure reducers that were faulty on that model compressor you really only need to unscrew the regulator knob assembly and replace it with the new regulator knob assembly that is on the regulator that you bought.If you want to change the whole thing you first have to remove the two pump case half and unscrew the female connector from the regulator body.Be careful though as the manufacture uses a high strength green loctite that might need to be heated a bit to get it off.Then remove the regulator body and reassemble in reverse order.Hope that helps.Good luck.

Hi mcmar,
Make sure the teflon ring is sitting centered on the link removed your top piston cap and torx screw.Be sure to loctite
the screw.Put the bottom of the connecting rod through the top of the cylinder.With one hand hold the cylinder top end down on a soft block of wood and grab the bearing end of the connecting rod with the other.With a rocking motion pull the piston and teflon ring through the top of the cylinder.You should have a tight fit.Hope that helps.Good luck.

I normally replace this with a part from Coilhose or RolAir. It is much easier to do it with the orig part but I find the other parts more reliable. It does help if you have a 1/4 NPT die and some green loctite. I actually have one in the shop now for the same problem, I will try to take pics on modifying it if anyone is interested.

Question: Does Not Built Up Air,

First of all blew a belt which was a pain to fix! Now it won't build up any air pressure or tank pressure, does not kick off just keeps running.
jkronify
Reply: Does Not Built Up Air,

jkronify

The design of the pressure switch is junk. I have been having the same problems with tank building up pressure and have found that the connection where the rilsan pipe connects to the pressure switch is the problem. They come apart very easily and the compressor won't shut off. Leading to burnt up belts,pumps, and motors.

Raymon
Reply: The Regulator Knob?

Raymon

This repair is for the red knob with a stripped center screw. Pull outward on the red knob while turning it counterclockwise to remove. Next remove the red ring threaded onto the outside diameter of the regulator fitting. Test fit the ring for a best fit (most glue surface) to the red knob and super glue the red ring to the red knob. (I had to flip the ring 180 for the best fit). Let the glue set and thread the red knob back onto the regulator fitting utilizing the inside diameter threads in the glued on ring and the outside diameter threads of the regulator fitting. It will drive the center screw in and allow pressure adjustment.

Question: Red Pressure Reducer Knob

Larry Doyle

I've only used this compressor three or four times since purchasing it six months ago. For the first time, air is escaping around the red pressure reducer knob. It seems like it is escaping from around the threads on the knob. How do I fix or replace this?
Perry
Reply: Red Pressure Reducer Knob

Perry

My situation is exactly the same as yours. Turns out the threads are completely stripped out of the cylinder where the regulator screw runs in and out.
Apparently the metal is too soft to withstand the pressure against them. the screw threads appear to be intact.
The replacement part is a special order and takes three to four weeks to be shipped.
Ordering the replacement part is probably the only solution. The screw is steel, but the cylinder is non ferrous, probably pot metal. Hopefully the replacement part is better engineered, but I'm still thinking of a possible material that will adhere to the surface of the cylinder, that can be drilled and tapped.
If the replacement part is no different than the original, then, I'm afraid it will just be a matter of time before it strips out again.
The model no. of my compressor is "C-pack 1850 BN, which is not listed anywhere.
I'm hoping that "Cap2000P-of" has parts compatible with my compressor. In fact, I plan to call the Stanley Bostitch people to get more info.
Hope this helps.

Hi Guys,
Call Stanley Bostitch and explain your problem to them.They are fully aware of the problems with the stripped knob (we have boxes of them in my shop).There was a quality control problem with these regulator knobs as the threads were not tap to specs.Explain to them that your aware of this problem and like using their products and feel that they should give you a little help by sending you one out at no charge.Be nice and polite and in most cases they will send you one to replace the defective part.These tool companies really do want you to be happy and I now from experience that they will bend over backwards to help.Hope that helps.Good Luck.

Question: Pressure Reducer

I have the same issue with the red knob stripped just like all the rest. Can someone explain more detail as to go about doing this repair. Mine is still attached but just spins.

I took the idea of another response and took a 3/8"-16 tap and tapped out the stripped out pressure regulator (where the red knob threads into) and replaced it with a 15 cent 3/8-16 bolt. It works just fine for a 15 cent repair.

Same thing happened to mine; I removed the red knob, (which is the culprit since it is now in two pieces) but I removed the diaphragm and inserted a small socket and replaced it. The problem now is that the tank and use pressure is the same. I'm also not very impressed with this compressor. It's only six months old and was not used hard.
I tried to add air to a portable air tank. I got to 100 lbs and pressure switch popped out and unit will not hold any pressure. Help!
My pressure regulator on my CAP2000P-OF broke recently. I got the replacement part but cannot get the Tie Rod bolt off of the cover to get to the regulator. Any help?

Question:

Adam

I have only used my compressor twice since I received it as a Christmas present. The second time I used it was to put up a chair rail in my dining room. I plugged it in and let it run for 10 minutes and only had 100 psi in the tank. I watched the pressure gauge and it would not move nor would the compressor turn off. When I was finished with my chair rail, I let it run for 10 more minutes and it crept back up to 100 psi and stopped. The first time that I ever used this compressor it would build pressure up in 5 minutes and turn off by itself. Please help.

Question: No Air Coming Out

I bought the c-pack air compressor at Lowes about 8 months ago. it really never kept up with my trim gun. Now, it is showing pressure on both sides, but as soon as I plug the air hose in the pressure goes to zero. Sometimes it will come back up slowly, but if you try to shoot one nail it goes right to zero. What do I need? Thank you!

I had the exact same thing happen when it was a couple weeks old! I ended up replacing the pressure regulator valve (with a higher quality aftermarket one). It works great now. Overall, I am not very impressed with this compressor. I share the same sentiments as some of the other posts here.

ONE OF THE TIE ROD ENDS TURNED OFF USING LITHIUM POWER DRILL WITH AN EXTENSION; THE OTHER SIDE SPUN THE ROD. I FIRST TRIED LUBRICATION WITH NO LUCK, THEN I DROPPED SUPER GLUE INTO THE HOLE. IT TAKES A LITTLE BIT OF PRACTICE GETTING THE ANGLE RIGHT, THEN LET IT SET OVER NIGHT AND USED A HAND HELD DRIVER TO REMOVE. THIS WAS MOST LIKELY BOTH THE LUBRICANT AND THE GLUE WORKING ON BOTH ENDS. GOOD LUCK!

Question: Smoke And Black Metal Soot

I have had my compressor over a year and really hardly used it but the other day when putting some air in a bike tire it sounded funny and shortly after that, smoke came out and there was a ashy black metal type soot around it. It stopped working. It's been over a year so no warranty and I would like to reapir it myself to save $, any help would be appreciated.

Reply: Smoke And Black Metal Soot

Hi Ronnie,

The smoke and soot would indicate a serious problem with the motor. I would suspect the armature shorted out and burned up. The motor will need to be replaced. The motor is part #AB-9415925 and is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com.

I hope this helps with your repair!

Using pliers or vice-grips on red knob while applying hard outward pressure and turning counterclockwise the knob will come out. Then tap the hole 3/8 -16 and use a bolt, or, what I used was an old appliance foot which provided a new knob as well.

I'm having the same problem! The pressure regulator or rather the plastic knob on the regulator is stripped out. Your going to have to replace the knob by removing the black cover on the compressor!

The two long ones on the bottom can be taken off with a flat blade screwdriver. This compressor has a lot of head scratching designs.

I just removed the Red Knob by unscrewing it and just pulled off the red regulator knob. I took the advice of others on this post and re-threaded the part where the Red Regulator knob is pressed/screwed into the unit. I did a 3/8 - 16 retread (die) and bought a 3/8 - 16 - 1" bolt. Worked Perfect!

In my situation replacing the knob would not have worked. The threads that held the regulator to the unit were stripped. The actual regulator bolt threads were fine.

Good luck!

Question: Botitch Cap2000p

904383

i have a bostitch cap2000p pancake compressor that i just replaced the pressure reducer. but now the problem i'm having now is the air is only building pressure up to about 110-120 psi and keeps running but pressure won't get any higher, the cut off pressure is set to 135 psi. this is the 150psi pancake compressor, could i be have a problem with the piston ring or the valve plate assembly ? don't seem to have any air leaks anywhere. any clues to help.
can't find brushes that connect bendex.
2 hours into baseboard trim and the Red Pressure Regulator Knob liberated from its base. No pressure out of tank. Cheap construction. Stanley/Bostitch? I think it is more like a rebadged Chinese import...

I'm going to replace the regulator with a real one and see how it performs.

regarding the pressure reducer on the cap2000p-of bostitch. this is bad engineered part, the inner spring is too strong for the plastic cap (it will break into 2 pieces if you leave pressure on). if you call bostitch they will tell you to call service center, who will proceed to try to sell you reducer. it is a shame that bostitch knows of this problem but won't stand behind their products. everyone should boycott this company and let them see what the little people can do to their business. I will never buy another bostitch product because of their reluctance to stand behind their guarantee and will tell anyone who will listen not to purchase from bostitch.

Ok overall; however, be aware the other reviews have indicated the plastic pressure reducer knob is prone to stripping out against the metal threads. Do not over adjust the pressure reducer knob as this will lead to premature repair. I have recommended to the company to upgrade this part to be metal vs plastic.

I had problems at the actual metal threads that mount the pressure reducer knob to the compressor. I can only guess that it was a factory defect or someone's Friday afternoon work at the assembly line. After only a hand full of uses, the threads around the mount were leaking air badly; I thought maybe some thread tape or just a good cleaning was in order. I came to find the threads had not been fully cut with the die. It cost me a Saturday morning driving to a service center an hour away to be told what I already knew and they offered to order the parts. I had already priced the parts on this site and knew they were charging more, so I went home, got back online and it still costs me $10.25 and 3 and half weeks to resolve the issue... Not Impressed....
I bought this unit and have regretted it since. It never worked right. The pump stopped making pressure. I had a new pump valve assembly and piston head sent under warranty. Both failed and the unit blew itself apart. China China China. Shame on you Bostitch.
I was a bit reluctant when I could buy a compressor 3 nail guns, a carrying case, hose and nails for less than $250, but It was Bostitch, so it had to be good, right? I was wrong. I figured when I bought it, that even if the compressor died, the nail guns were worth the money. This compressor has so much potential. Lightweight and portable, but bonehead design throughout. I have a 20yr old Craftsman that still runs great and never has needed repair. I had this thing for less than a month and the air chuck was junk. A rubber O-ring fell out and I couldn't get it back in. Not sure who the genius was that designed that. Then after a few months the regulator started to not kick out. Now the cooling fan has come loose from the shaft and shredded into a million pieces. The reason why is that it is made of cheap soft plastic and rides on an off center shaft, so the fan is out of balance by design. How long did they think this was going to last before it stripped out? I would say just over a year and I'm shocked it lasted that long. Luckily I see that it is a $2 part. I will be ordering several, because it will happen again, guaranteed.
I received this compressor as a gift. I had the unit for a month. I used it on two interior trim jobs. The unit worked great except I had constant air leakage at the quick coupling. Finally one day, after disconnecting the hos, the little rubber o-ring popped out of the coupling. I have not been successful on getting the o-ring back into the coupling yet. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Yes, simply replace the whole coupling. They are dirt cheap about, $5 .

Same thing happened to me... Poor design... Like George said, just replace it with a new one that you can find at most Home Improvement stores. Make sure you get the correct type for the connectors you have on your hose.

Let the pressure out of the tank and remove the coupling (it will be easier to work on). You need to separate the two halves. You can do this by hand with two wrenches, but it is easier to clamp the bottom hex fitting (the end next to the pipe threads) in a vise so that you can have a free hand to hold the spring pressure. Holding the sleeve down, remove the top outer piece by unscrewing the upper hex fitting. It will probably be tight to begin, as the threads are coated with sealer. Remove very carefully so as not to lose any small parts. There is a small collet that fits just ahead of the o-ring; the inner end which retains the o-ring is thicker than the outer. This is loose and will probably just fall out when you separate the halves, as will the spring. The problem is that when you try to insert the o-ring, the collet is pushed backward into the groove for the ring. With the halves separated you can reassemble with the ring in place. Put some silicone lubricant on the ring and new sealer on the threads. The threads are very fine, so be careful not to cross-thread.
I bought a CAP2000P-OF in March 2009. I installed crown molding in 3 rooms and inflated a small swimming pool. ( Almost inflated. I had to finish with 62 year old lungs ). The regulator knob threads stripped. I can see by many other comments that this a common problem. If I could locate my original receipt I would be at Lowes returning the poorly designed compressor instead of complaining on the Ereplacementparts.com site.

I bought my CAP2000P-OF from Lowes in 2008. I used it 3 times on simple things such as putting air into a car tire, air into a basketball and installing molding in a small room. There is definitely a defect in their regulator knob, it stripped with little or no use. There must be a way we can get them to stop selling these compressors until they correct the problems.

I have the same problem and was instructed to try to get a repair part. And if I could not, they would then replace my compressor without a receipt. This will be my third replacement.
I love the look and the price but the quality is poor. I have only used this compressor once and guess what? This cheap regulator stripped out and I'm not alone it seems. Better yet there are no repair parts for the regulator avaliable.

I guess I was lucky. I have used my compressor for about 8 months, but the same crappy regulator stripped out. The really stupid part is that I used it 2 weeks ago just fine put it up and went to air a tire up today and the piece of crap was stripped. I almost think that just the constant pressure is enough to get the best of this high quality part. I am going to replace mine with a regulator that I make work myself, not a factory replacement one.
