  • OF45150 compressor piston and cylinder

    Does anyone know where I can purchase a new piston, cylinder, and gasket set for an OF45150 oil-free compressor? I looked online at ridgidparts.com but it says that the parts are not available online. Would like to fix the problem myself as opposed to paying someone else to do it for me. I purchased the compressor for $20 on craigslist because the seller said it will not build up pressure. I soaped all of the joints and connections and found no leaks. The cylinder had a not-so-smooth sound to it so I removed the cylinder head to find that the piston gasket had failed and the piston head had ruined the walls of the cylinder. I am not a cheap bastard, I just like to fix things myself and have the mechanical knowledge to do it. I live in the Boston area.

    Contact Campbell Hausfeld for your repair parts on this unit. Even though the manual reads to contact Ridgid, you will have much better luck getting the parts direct from CH. You can access their website @ www.chpower.com . Also, here is a direct link to the Campbell parts list for your compressor. You can plug the CH part # directly into their parts search and buy direct.

      Thanks Tech.Man, I don't know how much money you saved me but I am sure it was a good amount. I got out the door after $90 at the CH website buying new piston and cylinder, valve plate kit, air filter, power cord, and handle grip. I guess $110 total for that compressor with a completely rebuilt pump assembly isn't too bad.

        Got everything replaced and the compressor is up and running. Found a leaky regulator knob and a safety relief valve that likes to operate belows it's spec'd value so those are on order. Thanks again for the help.
