Question about Dewalt d55151 factory reconditioned emglo heavy - duty 2.5hp 4 gallon Electric hand carry compressor

1 Answer

Sounds like a loud leaf blower, no engine sound.

Dewalt D55168, 1.8hp, 15 gal oil-free upright. I performed the break in procedure when new and then it sat unused for about a year. My painter asked to use it with his spray gun, it fired right up and he commented on how quiet it ran. 2 days later I noticed 60lbs pressure on tank gauge and turned it on, it sounded like a loud leaf blower or shop vac and the pressure wouldn't build past 60lbs. I couldn't hear the motor like I did 2 days earlier. I drained the tank and tried again with the same sound. The local Dewalt repair center said that I damaged the motor by leaving air in the tank for 2 days? Quoted over $200 to replace.

You can get a rebuild kit from DeWalt for about $40 and fix it yourself. The flappers are most likely bent.

Craftsman Air Comp. 6 hp oil-less, 33 gal horz. tank - sounds really loud


Some of the craftsmen compressors have pistons that are coated on the top of the dome. Once the coating wears off, they have severe loud piston slap. If you continue to run it the way it is, it will snap the connecting rod in half or break the piston and possibly the cylinder.

Check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old.
Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Always use the proper oil/gas mix. If you do not, your engine will suffer rapid, permanent damage.May need to clean or replace carburetor.

The manual probably says 40:1 (3.2oz.oil to 1 gal gas) but if you use a good modern 2 cycle oil,50:1(2.6oz .oil to 1 gal gas) will suffice.

Sounds like a piece of wood is caught under/between the impellor and the case/housing. When removing the impellor, you may find it has a left hand threaded nut.
