This may be a long shot but...... I bought a 7-1/2 3 phase Speedaire compressor a while back. I got it wired up to my new phase converter and turned that thing on. In very little time I recognized that the output was not much better than my old unit which was rated at 11 scfm at 90 psig. I got a real good deal on the Speedaire (Used) and began to suspect why with the low output. I started looking around and saw that one intake filter had some dust on it and the other was like it had just that minute been put on. I removed the filter bracket so I could see down in the Pr and found that a plastic plug had been put in at the factory before painting and never taken out. I removed the plug reassembled the filters and boy did that thing start pumping air. Just a thought take a look at your unit. David Bodily
