Question: Porter Cable Compressor

The air comes up to part 6 on page B. After the valve it does not come to the hose. What is the problem with it and what should I do?
WJA
Reply: Porter Cable Compressor

WJA

Hello hmabrouk,

If you are speaking of the item number 6, part number A17166 guage. And you are not getting a reading on item number 7, part number Z-D27212 guage. It sounds like you have a bad regulator. At one time the manufacture had a regulator repair kit. Now you have to purchase the entire 5140110-41 manifold kit.

Hello 1154492,

The parts that come with the 5140110-41 manifold kit are as follows:

SS-322-CD pipe plug
A17166 gauge
Z-D27212 gauge
A16182 quick connect (2 ea)
N044990 nipple
SSF-621 screw
CAC-1206-1 hose clamp

The A17987 safety valve and A19906 hosebarb fitting, would have to be ordered individually. And according to the manufacture the part number A16347 cover. Is no longer available.

Hope this helps,

Reply: Regulator

WJA

Hello 1097600,

As you well know the manufacture does not supply parts for this type of regulator. Because of that either a complete regulator must be purchased, which is part number 5140110-41. Or you can take the damaged piece to a local compressor repair center to see if they can match one up for you.

Hope this helps,

Question: Regulator

My compressor is less than 1 year old and builds pressure in the tank, but will not allow it to pass thru the regulator to the tool. Can I purchase just the regulator and tnot the entire manifold?
WJA
Reply: Regulator

WJA

Hello rjanney220,

Unfortunately you do have to purchase the entire 5140110-41 Manifold Kit, since the regulator is not available to purchase separately. If the compressor is only one year old. Take it to a Authorized Porter-Cable Service Center and have it repaired under warranty. It should have a three year warranty on it.

Good luck,

WJA
Reply: Drain Valve

WJA

Hello alfour,

To replace the part number, A17038 is a rather easy fix. Make sure all the air is drained from the tank and the compressor is unplugged from the power source. Grab a wrench that will fit the nut. Remove the old drain and replace it with the new one. Close the valve by hand with the knurled knob. Power up the compressor and you should be good to go. Remember to drain the tank often, to keep water from building up in the tank.

Hope this helps,

I had the same problem. The plastic washer in the regulater broke and the compressor would not build any pressure on the load side. Tried to find the part but the only thing available was the whole regulator assembly. I managed to get it working by placing a metal washer over the broken plastic stem washer and verified that the regulator still did its function of regulating to a set pressure.

Question: C2002 Manifold Check Valve

dbilleaudeau

I have a pancake compressor that was purchased in 2010. Recently I noticed that pressure was not being diverted from the tank through the manifold pressure regulator outward to the hose (output gauge reads 0 pressure). When disassembling the pressure regulator, I noticed the plastic check valve nipple internally was broken off. In looking at the parts manual, the only replacement is the manifold. Can i purchase just the valve assembly without purchasing the entire manifold? Thanx, DBilleaudeau

Hey dbilleaudeau, It seems that Porter Cable has a problem with this year(2010) model. I received one for christmas 2010 and I'm having the exact same problem with mine. Unfortunately the repair places where I live will not touch my compressor without a receipt so I am dead in the water. I hope someone responds with some good news.

Hello dbilleaudeau,

Porter Cable does have a 3 year limited warranty from date of purchase. Contact either a PC factory Service Center or an Authorized Service Center, hopefully you still have a receipt.

Your best course of action is probably to bring your complaint to Porter Cable themselves.

Either way, I'm just glad you got your compressor working. We do our best to help you find the best repair solution for your situation, but we're ill-equipped to tell Porter Cable how to build their compressors.

If you put your ZIP Code in on Porter Cable's website, you'll get an address and contact info for the nearest Service Center. You can find their site here:

I WENT TO MY COMPRESSOR TODAY AND THE SAME THING HAPPENED. HOW DO YOU FIX IT???
Rick
Reply: No Air From Gauge Side

Rick

Mine has the same issue. I have tinkered for a few hours and located the problem. If you unscrew the regulator completely and remove the spring you will see a metal nipple on the inside. Around that is a plastic ring. The best I gather the way the regulator is supposed to work is it compresses the nipple the more you turn it. Now if it is airtight inside the regulator you get compressed air from your tank.

I found this out by removing the regulator and then placing my thump over the metal nipple in there and pressing in. You will feel air begin to flow past your thumb. The air will move the plastic ring forward and in turn seal against your thumb. All the sudden you will feel a lot of pressure when you try to push inward. You will also notice your outlet gauge increase as you try to push the plastic ring back over the nipple (b/c you have made a seal and your pushing pressure toward the outlet side- which is what a good regulator does).

Unfortunately, it appears you have to spend $70 for a new manifold to fix the issue. I am going to go to Home Depot unscrew the regulator for the pump on display to see if there is a rubber grommet or something I am missing. If not I am going to buy one that fits around that nipple so that when the pointed plastic part on the regulator cap (look inside you'll see it) begins to press the metal nipple in, it will seal like its supposed to and divert the air to my outlet gauge.

I'll let you know what happens.

Question: Compressor Pumps, But No Air Com...

I have a Porter Cable 3hp 6 gallon compressor. It runs and the tank pressurizes. When I hook a hose to it, I can't get any tools to work. No air comes out.

I just got mine fixed for the same problem--the tube seal split due to excessive wear.
My compressor starts 90% of the time. 10% of the time it tries and after about three times of trying it will eventually start. I am thinking its the check valve bleeding through and not starting under a load. Should I replace the check valve?
The tank pressures up but there is no air to hose or psi gauge.

Question: Running Constant

Mark
Reply: Running Constant

Mark

Hi James,

If the compressor runs, builds pressure and then continues to run past the normal shutoff point then the problem is the pressure switch. The pressure switch is part #N003307.

If the compressor runs but doesn't build pressure or builds to a pressure lower than the pressure switch cutoff point and won't build anymore then the piston and cylinder are worn out. The piston & cylinder are sold as a kit which is part #KK-4964.

I hope this helps with your repair!

Question: Air Pressure Bleed Off

Jim Vogel

When compressor reaches set pressure and turns off - - air
bleeds off within the unit and will go to O # if let set long enough. Sometimes it will stop if I turn the unit on and then off
within a couple of seconds running. Whats causing?
Mark
Reply: Air Pressure Bleed Off

Mark

Hi Jim,

I think the problem is the tank check valve. If the valve doesn't seal off air will bleed back to the cylinder. There is a small vent hole in the cylinder head to bleed off the air escaping from the check valve. A new check valve should solve the problem. The check valve is part #D27022 and it is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com.

I hope this helps with your repair!

Question: No Air On Tool Side

Randy Davis

What is up with the tool/regulated air side on the compressor?? I've used it maybe 4-5 times and it no longer supplies air to the tool side only to the tank side. Is it a defect??? Not to mention the product carries a hefty price tag compared to comparable products. This really stinks the product was recommended by my father in law. Is there a solution???
Mark
Reply: No Air On Tool Side

Mark

Hi Randy,

Assuming that the regulator is properly set then I would guess that the problem is with the regulator on the manifold. Porter Cable does not offer the regulator parts separate from the manifold assembly. You will need to order the manifold. The manifold is part # N003001 and is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com.

Good luck with your repair!

Rick
Reply: No Air On Tool Side

I had the same issue and identified it as being the regulator. Of course, the part is not sold separate from the manifold ($70). I attempted to make a good seal inside the regulator by using a couple different rubber washers. I had limited success with one that gave me only about 50 psi out of the tool side. Needless to say, the fix wasn't enough.

Good-bye porter cable. Hello Dewalt (I should have started with this). Instead of being out $350 for the Dewalt, I am out $529 since I wasted $179 on a Porter Cable.

Hi James,

That style of fastener is called a "Security Torx". You should be able to find a driver from a specialty tool supplier. I know that Snap-On sells them and I would assume that Matco or Mac would also. You could also try a Sears store, they might have them.

Question: No Pressure To Tools

Fairly new C2002. Pressures up tank to 150, shuts off, but no (zero) pressure to outlets for tools. Took apart pressure adjustment on manifold and appears that the part that pushes on the air control (disk with a small head on it that the spring sits on) is broken. Do you see this small piece? Don't want to buy a new manifold for a 2 cent part. Works fine otherwise just no air to the tool outlets.

Same problem. I purchased the C2002 with accessories last year. Never used it. Took it out of the box last month, went thru its "break-in" steps. Tank pressured up fine but no air came thru various nozzles. Turned regulator knob and it came off the threaded male housing. Only parts inside were a spring, short black molded ferrule and an O ring. I didn't see any other parts to enable release of air to the outlets. Replacement manifolds run $69 to $120 plus shipping and additional labor. Seems very unfair.

The same problem. The manual adjustment valve requires that a small plastic part that is held down with a heavy spring inside seems to be broken. All that is required is that plastic part. Why can't we just get those internal parts required? This unit is less than one year old and has only gone thru the original box of nails that it came with. (Disappointed)

Porter Cable replaced the regulator and it worked fine a couple more times.
I haven't used it in a couple of months, just turned it on and guess what.....SAME PROBLEM--it will not build up pressure.
THIS IS THE LAST PORTER CABLE PRODUCT I WILL EVER BUY.
Taking it to the dump, not worth paying another $68 for a new regulator.

Hi Mark,

The problem is the Check Valve. The check valve is not sealing off completely so air is leaking back to the cylinder. There is a vent to allow the air to escape out of the cylinder.

Hi Mark,

If there is zero pressure check the drain valve and make sure it is closed. Check all of the tubing and hoses for leaks. If there is still no pressure or low pressure then it is most likely that the cylinder and piston are worn out and will need to be replaced. The Connecting Rod Kit, part #KK-4964, will replace the cylinder and piston.

Good luck with your repair!

Hi Nelson,

The inability of the compressor to build pressure is caused by wear to both the piston and the cylinder. To make the repair you will need the Connecting Rod Kit, part #KK-4964. the kit includes the piston, connecting rod, and cylinder wall.

My Porter Cable compressor leaks air from the the head area, and there appears to be a small hole in top of the head. What's the hole for, and how do I fix the problem? It's not even a year old, and it's used minimally.

Bobby I have basically the same and was given some advice to look at the check valve going into the tank...Mine appears to be stuck so I'm going to replace it. That small hole is apparently for relieving the pressure off the compressor cylinder after it stops running... The check valve is supposed to prevent all of the air in the tank from also escaping into that hole. My first thought when I saw the small hole was it must be a casting imperfection.... Geeesh

There is a small orange O ring type thing that is on the aluminum tube going into the head. It has a slot that the ring slides into on the tube and the top locks into the head and valve plate. Its a fairly easy fix. You will need a Torx screwdriver to open up the motor housing. Its a #25 size Torx screw. Take the head off the piston (4 hex screws) and you will see the O ring. The O ring was leaking for some time on mine because it kept on turning on even when not being used. Today it blew out and it wouldn't build any pressure. The O-ring costs $1.76. Cheap fix. Look at that first before you spend a fortune on other parts. Good Luck

Why is the ring replacement kit not listed on the C2002 type 3 parts list, but it is on other models compatible with it ? Dumb question, but the ring replacement kit for a C2005 type 0, is less than half the price of the connecting rod kit shown for the C2002 type 3 .

Porter Cable C2002 Type 2: Motor cuts off then pulsates to try to start. It restarts after flipping the on/off switch, then it stops again.

Mine has done this in extremely cold weather in Wisconsin. I believe something is freezing up because as soon as I take it inside to warm up it worked fine good Luck

Question: Porter Cable Model C2002 Leaking

I have been given a Porter Cable Model C2002. It is leaking air at the drain valve. The compressor continues to run trying to overcome the small leak. I could use the compressor for short periods but can the drain valve be replaced without damaging the air tank? An if so, Can I do it? I am reasonably handy but do want to destroy the opening for the drain valve.

I see the part here and was just wondering ........maybe I could fix this......

Thanks, Ned Booker............

yes the drain valves can be replaced. usually a wrench will do it. sometimes they get really stuck and strip.

Recently purchased a Porter Cable C2002 compressor. It's only 2 months old with minimal use.

I was using it earlier today. I adjusted the pressure to max as I have a stubborn bolt to remove.

When I was waiting for it to catch up with full pressure I noticed the compressor got noticably louder and it would no longer build any more pressure. So i drained all the air and started it again, It will only build pressure to 50 PSI and no higher. I shut it off and all is quiet. It's not leaking anywhere. After 2 hours of being off and not used it still has 50 psi in it.

Any Ideas what to look for?

I will call Porter Cable customer service as it is less than 2 months old. Hopefully they will help. I bought this figuring it was a good quality brand.

Hi grtpumpkin,

It sounds as if the problem is a worn out piston and cylinder. I think this was a case of not enough compressor for the work being done. The C2002 has a CFM output of 2.6 CFM @ 90psi. I assume from your post about the bolt that you where using an impact wrench. A typical impact wrench requires between 4 and 5 CFM to operate properly. I think that is why the bolt didn't want to budge. The C2002 compressor has a tank that holds 6 gallons of air. Using a tool that requires 5 CFM with a 6 gallon tank will cause the compressor to turn on after about 15 seconds of use and then run continuously until the tool is shut off.

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, approximately 50 to 60%. 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. To operate an impact wrench I would consider a compressor with an oil lubricated pump and a tank that is about 25 gallons or larger.

To repair your compressor you will need a piston and cylinder kit. The kit is part #KK-4964 and is available from ereplacementparts.com

I hope this helps!

Hey danny1,
You will need to remove the piston/rod first..[place a large punch or screwdriver between the open slots of the bottom pulley braced against the housing..remove the screw holding the bottom of the piston] the piston should move out of the way enough to start removing the belt off the bottom pulley..[a flat blade screwdriver should suffice.].to install the new one..start with the small pulley first and then feed or push the belt on the bottom one..reattach the bottom of the piston and reassemble..:)
hope this is helpful...

compressor runs up to about 90 psi then the hose from pump to the tank gets real hot and the pressure starts to drop. check valve is o.k. tried to check piston, but do not know how to get piston out of head?

Hey c.w180,
Once you have removed item #13 screw from the case [there may be 2 of them..1 on each side] and slid the whole pump assy off the tank..[you may have to unhook the electrical also] you remove the screws from the housing and separate..then you will have access to the piston/pump/motor assy..4 screws on the top plate..[check item #104 tube seal for wear or breakage ] you may have a worn out piston/seal assy..a worn out or broken valve plate or just that darn tube seal letting air leak out while its try to pump up..:)
parts and breakdown avail at ereplacementparts.com..
[caution..this repair is not for the faint of link removed women..or left-handed people..]:D
hope this helps..?

A never used compressor will not let air through the regulator; I'm glad to see other people with this problem, for it tells me I made a mistake buying product and the manufacturer knows of the problem.
It sounds like I have the same problem with the manifold leaking air. The part costs almost as much as I paid for the whole air compressor. What a rip. This will be my last Porter Cable.
I rate this product with a 0. I had big expectations and was excited about my new/used comp. I wasn't told there was a problem with it leaking until I got it home. After I learned the problem, I decided to repair the comp. When I saw the price of the manifold part I about flipped out. Not only was I deceived by one guy, now Porter Cable wants to stick it to me as well. No reason why Porter Cable can't sell us repair parts to repair this manifold. Porter Cable is ripping us off. I just need the plastic parts under the handle. Why can't Porter Cable do that for us? I did notice others are having the same problem. Why can't Porter Cable help us out? This was my first Porter Cable product and it looks brand new but unless Porter Cable can help with the solution this may me my last purchase. I believe this comp. has never been used, it was still in the box. Come on Porter Cable, you can do better than this, you just got to want too. SURE AM DISAPPOINTED SO FAR ------MAKE IT GOOD OK
