    Sealy 1.5 HP 24L air compressor does not build pressure. when it stars, build pressure slowly to 2 bar and that where it stays no matter how long I keep it running. and when I switch off it leaks from under the switch assembly (black box). I dismantled the switch assembly and can not see anything that shows me where the leak is. there is a black rubber diaphragm which is in good shape.

    Press the play button on The YouTube video above.

    From about the 5min point to the end it highlights a few areas for you to consider that match the symptoms you highlighted.

    He says to drain it once a day or at least once a week. I do mine every 6-12 months. :rolleyes:

    Surprised you're not running on compressed water!

    I only drain it when I start getting condensation on my hand when using the impact gun!

    How corroded is the inside of your compressor tank?
