Why is the air compressor not sucking air?
What causes the air compressor to fail to suction? How to solve it? This article summarizes several possible causes and solution suggestions for the air compressor to fail to suction.
- The airtight seal is damaged
A broken air-tight seal is another common reason why an air compressor is unable to suck air. These seals are related to the air intake path of the air compressor. Its damage will cause gas leakage, causing the compressor to be unable to suck air. In this case, repair or replace the damaged seal promptly.
- The air intake filter is clogged
If the filter element is too contaminated or improperly replaced, the air compressor will not suck air. At this time, it is necessary to replace the new intake filter in time to make the compressor work normally. It is recommended to choose a new air intake filter element to reduce obstruction of the air path.
- The exhaust valve is closed too early
The reason why the air compressor does not inhale may be because the exhaust valve is closed early and the discharged gas enters the exhaust pipe, resulting in insufficient negative pressure in the air intake mode to form suction. You can check whether the exhaust valve is affected by some unpredictable harsh conditions, causing the exhaust valve to close prematurely. It is recommended to replace and adjust related parts.
- Other reasons
Unconventional reasons such as a blocked air compressor inlet, stuck compressor impeller, burned out compressor motor, etc. may also cause the compressor to be unable to suck air. In this case, special attention needs to be paid to checking for errors and taking appropriate measures.
In short, during the use of the air compressor, it is a common fault that the air compressor does not inhale air. In order to ensure the normal operation of the compressor, it is necessary to troubleshoot the fault in time and take corresponding measures. At the same time, regular maintenance and upkeep of the compressor can avoid such problems as much as possible.
