Hi,
Drain your air and remove the cap screw.You should see a brass stem that sits in the nut .Remove it clean it and put a little grease on it .Reinstall it and that should stop the air leak.If not then replace the regulator.Hope that helps.Good luck.

Question: Compressor

Have Bostitch Cap60P. Having trouble tasking plastic housing off to disconnect hoses/wires so I can replace pressure switch
I have a model# cap 2060p pancake air compressor. I just can't get building air pressure. I've had it for two years and the compressor stopped building pressure.
My compressor stops building pressure @ 80 psi and continues to run until I shut it off. I've had it for about 3 years and only used it maybe a dozen times for small jobs like trim work etc.. I read some of the other reviews with the same problem and the answer seems to be that the cylinder and piston have worn out. I dissembled mine and the cylinder and piston seem to be okay. Here's what I did find, the head has 3 flimsy metal valves and one of them has a small piece missing. Could this be my problem? Thanks.

I like the bostitch air guns, but the cap 2060p 6 gal compressor is a pile, even at a capacity of 40%, mine lasted about 6 months and died! I bought a porter cable twin stage 4 gal and it was about the same price and 10 times the compressor! Sorry guys this model needs to be put back to the drawings and figured out, mine was hardly used when it went out. Mine wasn't overworked by any means.

Greg Sandiland

My compressor charges fully on first fill but when its time to refill the motor will just sit and hum. It will finally start to to run and refill if drained below 5 psi.
GERRY
Reply: Won't Recharge

GERRY

Greg, it sounds like the check valve located at the inlet line to the tank is not closing when it shuts off. This will cause too much head pressure for the motor to start. With no pressure in the tank, you can remove the screw cap from the check valve and inspect the spring and rubber stop. If this proves not to be your problem, then it could be that the capacitor/capacitors are bad or too weak to start the motor under load.

Reply: Unit Will Not Build Pressure Ove...

Mark

Hi Chris,

The pressure issue sounds like a worn piston and cylinder. These parts are available as a replacement kit. The kit is part #AB-8223092 and is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com.

I am not sure about the brushes. The parts diagram for the model #CAP2060P shows an induction motor which uses a stator and rotor to produce power. Motor brushes are typically used on universal motors. The brush transfers electricity to the commutator on the armature in a universal motor. The induction motor used on the CAP2060P does not use carbon brushes.

I hope this helps with your repair!

My compressor stops at 20 psi but I took off the line going to the tank and started it up and it was pushing really good air. I think the air is coming out on the gauge mount where the wire goes in the switch. I feel air flow there. Is there a seal there? Can it be replaced. My compressor is only 3 years old this really sucks.

Question: Psi Stops At 40

The compressor is less then 3 years old. The parts should last longer then 3 years. I read what you said to all the other men that have the same problem but wow, 3 years and you have to replace those parts? Maybe we should look for better tools.
Mark
Reply: Psi Stops At 40

Mark

Hi Chris,

The CAP2060P is a light duty compressor. All air compressors have what is called a Duty Cycle Rating. Sometimes the manufacture publishes the rating sometimes not. What the duty cycle rating tells us is the amount of time the compressor may be running during a given job. For example, if you have a compressor with a Duty Cycle Rating of 50% and your job is going to take you one hour, the compressor can not run for more that 30 minutes of that hour. This does not mean that you can allow the motor to run for 30 continuous minutes during that hour. The 30 minutes of running must be spread out evenly during the 60 minutes that the job takes to complete. A small, oil less compressor like yours probably has a Duty Cycle Rating of about 35% to 45%. A compressor that is lubricated by oil will usually have a higher Duty Cycle Rating. Large industrial compressors, usually with 80 gallon or bigger tanks will quite often have continuous Duty Cycle Ratings. Knowing a bit about Duty Cycle Ratings can help you to select the proper size and quality compressor for the type of work you want to do.

I hope this helps to explain a little bit about how to size the compressor to the type of work you plan to use it for.

Thanks!

Question: Pressure

Bob

My compressor runs but only gets to 75-80 psi instead of the normal 135 psi.
Mark
Reply: Pressure

Mark

Hi Bob,

If the compressor builds to 75 or 80 psi and then keeps running but doesn't build any more pressure then the problem will be with the piston and cylinder. The piston and cylinder will have worn so that they can no longer compress the air beyond that point. The piston & cylinder will need to be replaced. They are available as a kit. The kit is part #AB-8223092 and is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com.

Good luck with your repair!

Ken
Question: Relief Engages

Ken

The compressor builds pressure to 125-130lbs and the relief valve engages before the compressor shuts off.
Mark
Reply: Relief Engages

Mark

Hi Ken,

The problem could be with either the safety valve or the pressure switch. If the pressure switch is not turning the motor off at the proper pressure the motor will keep running until the safety valve pops.

The spring in the safety valve could be worn and is now opening prematurely before the pressure switch reaches is preset shut off pressure.

I would lean toward the safety valve in this case. The safety valve is usually set to open at about 10 lbs more pressure than the pressure switch shuts off at. With it popping so close to the pressure switch shutoff setting I would guess that the valve is bad.

Unfortunately the safety valve has been discontinued by Bostitch. I would suggest removing the safety valve and taking it to a local compressor repair shop. They can likely find one that will work. Also make note of the compressor's normal shut off pressure to help the shop find the proper valve.

Good luck with your repair!

Reply: Cap60p-of

Hi Matt,

You will need to diagnose whether the leak is coming from the box (pressure regulator) or from the hose fitting itself. If the damage is to the pressure switch it is part #AB-9063096. The hose is part #AB-9270006. Both parts are available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com.

I bought a 2hp 6gallon Bostitch. hardly used. It was holding air last week. Now it went from 60 psi to 40psi and the motor turns on and off.
Mark
Reply: Not Building Enough Preassure

Mark

Hi Manny,

If I understand correctly, the compressor never builds to normal shut off pressure. It just runs continuously. Periodically while running the motor will shut of and then a bit later turn back on.

Running but not building pressure is caused by a worn out cylinder and piston. The cylinder and piston are available as a replacement kit. The kit is part #AB-8223092.

I am guessing that the motor has a thermal overload breaker in it that was causing it to turn on and off. The motor on your small compressor is not designed to run continuously. If it does run continuously it will quickly overheat.

You mentioned that your compressor has had very little use when these problems popped up. All air compressors have what is called a Duty Cycle Rating. Sometimes the manufacture publishes the rating sometimes not. What the duty cycle rating tells us is the amount of time the compressor may be running during a given job. For example, if you have a compressor with a Duty Cycle Rating of 50% and your job is going to take you one hour, the compressor can not run for more that 30 minutes of that hour. This does not mean that you can allow the motor to run for 30 continuous minutes during that hour. The 30 minutes of running must be spread out evenly during the 60 minutes that the job takes to complete. A small, oil less compressor like yours probably has a Duty Cycle Rating of about 35% to 45%. A compressor that is lubricated by oil will usually have a higher Duty Cycle Rating. Large industrial compressors, usually with 80 gallon or bigger tanks will quite often have continuous Duty Cycle Ratings. Knowing a bit about Duty Cycle Ratings can help you to select the proper size and quality compressor for the type of work you want to do.

Always check to see if the gaskets between the top two pieces of the head haven't blown out. Mine did the same thing and I replaced the gasket and it runs fine. These small compressors last much longer if kept inside while not in use.

Question: Blew Up?

shane

what is the piece of the compressor that is on the front of the compressor, has the pressure gauge on the top, the knob for increasing/decreasing the pressure, and the quick release for the hose on the left? The other night, I was blowing up a tire and the female thread casing of the front of that part broke and the red nob blew off with some extreme force. I was able to remove that piece and would like to replace it without having to replace the compressor.

Reply: Blew Up?

The same thing that happened to Shane happened to me! The red turning knob broke off and that pressure gauge will not work. The air compressor comes on and acts normal but no air will come out even though the main pressure gauge is at 100%. What part do I need and I think this part needs a recall.

I had the exact experience! It looks to me like the aluminum housing under the red increase/decrease knob just cracked. This knob blew off with considerable force and flew nearly to the end of my shed, 32 feet!
I agree with Todd's posting, 10/03/2009, that this part should be recalled! The potential for personal injury or property damage is great.

My problem is not quite as severe. The red knob that adjusts the outlet pressure apparently has stripped, therefore I can not build any pressure to the hose connection. I went to Lowe's -the vendor for this item- to discuss the problem. We took a look at the floor model to insure that we were discussing the same part. His compressor had the exact same problem as mine. He shrugged his shoulders and suggested I contact Bostitch.
This is a personal tool which has run for maybe 10 hours in the six months that I have owned it. It has not been abused. It worked quite well prior to this issue.
I can only believe that this particular item is poorly made.
I note that several others have had the same problem. What is the part number and is it available..

OK... so has anyone figured out how to replace this part? This just happened to me... the thread is stripped (although I don't know how that even happened) and now I cannot get any pressure to my gauge. Is there a replacement part or a recall?

I guess I have been lucky. I found these reports because I need to replace this same casing. With my compressor the casing started to leak somewhere in the back side of it. The leak did not seem to be from any fittings so I removed the assembly but I do not see a crack. I believe it must open up under pressure but I could be wrong. I was looking to replace this part but after reading this I may replace the compressor with a different manufacturer. I have had this compressor for four or five years with random use and this is the first problem but it seems to be a very serious one.
Had for two years and the compressor stopped building pressure. Found a metal valve broken; they are pretty flimsy.

I'm trying to get brushes for my bostitch # cap2060p... Can't believe this thing !!!

Beat the crap out of it through marathon uses, running full tilt for 15 to 18 hours a day for weeks & sometimes months at a time. Then last year it sputters and stops a few times before stopping for good. I say cool! Got my money out of that! Especially since it was bought on sale at Lowes; then I crack it open out of curiosity and behold, only the brushes worn away.
Bet it works fine again for along time after I replace them.
Oh, and most of all why this is a good bet, is because unlike the other little units. This pumps enough air to keep a quart gravity spraygun with a constant pressure. Most can't!

I just use this for small crafts, it is less than two years old and now they tell me that I have to replace the cylinder and piston. This compressor has been babied since I've owned it. It has not even seen the outdoors. It is a piece of crap. Bostitch should be ashamed of themselves.
