Model: LA0602712. (oil-free)  The piston rubber type ring is defective & all I can find is the whole piston: 048-0105 which is about $100.  My logic & I can be "wrong" is there must be a way to buy the ring for a cheaper price.  Of course; this could be machined on at the factory.  Unit is old; but has functioned great.  Anyone had any experience with finding & replacing the piston ring?  Thanks

The folks on this forum mostly collect coleman camping gear (lanterns, stoves, coolers, tents, etc.) I don't think you'll get many responses on your question related to a coleman air compressor.  Good luck though.

[welcome], John, from Pennsylvania! (Which can't be much cooler than GA right now 😓) If there's any chance you can share a picture of the part, it may help someone to help you.  Maybe someone even has a compressor they don't use with a part for you, who knows? Lots of things are possible here.

Welcome from California!
Like Steve said, pictures help. Maybe even go a little further and research the actual manufacturer. Someone is bound to have a parts rig around.

Howdy from NE oregon!

Unfortunately, that is an open-bottom oiless piston compressor. What I call an "airless" compressor. Since the bottom of the cylinder is open to ambient air, with no filter even, the piston and cylinder wear quickly due to dust accumulating there. Yours, being a stationary upright, is better off than the portable jobsite units, but still prone to the same problem.

I looked, too, and it does seem the only option is a new piston for north of a hundred bucks. Check the cylinder for scoring, too. May have to replace that while you're at it.

If you don't need oil-free air, you might want to consider replacing the compressor head with an oil-type, sealed cylinder head.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

I appreciate ALL the info; unfortunately I cannot get a piston ring & the piston is over $100; as suggested, I am going to sell this one for parts & get an oil lubed.  Again Thanks

Keep that one! Use the reservoir from it to double your storage capacity. Your new compressor will love you for it! Just plumb it downstream of the existing tank and move the pressure regulator to downstream of the two.

Compressor motors last longer if they run less frequently, and the best way to do that is more air storage.

Thanks to ALL of the input; I heard directly from Coleman & yours & my idea was correct; it is pressed in & I must buy the whole piston.  Gunhippie; that is a GREAT idea & I will do that ASAP.  I have searched but cannot find a piston less than $95.  Anyone got a link to a cheaper one?

Best price I could find was $100.

I have old 30-50 gallon compressor reservoirs all over the brewery for "surge tanks" to keep pressure up for equipment that uses big bursts of air or CO2--like our keg washer. I plumb them direct to our 125 psi main lines, isolated with a check valve and a regulator before the equipment. Works great!

If you really want to treat yourself--and let's face it, you deserve it--get a rotary-screw compressor. Spendy, but they last forever and are quiet. My 5 hp IR is running about ten feet from my desk right now, and I can hear the stereo just fine.
