First: Most all compessors use check valves at the tank and an unloader to allow the compressor to start without a load. Make sure that system is unloading and that check valve is not leaking causing head pressure at start. Second: Too frequent starts and stops will cause motor to overheat. Check Quincy manual for max starts per hour. enjoy

Has this unit just been installed or has it been running. Just installed check wiring. If been running check wiring for tightness on starter. Check voltage and amps. Compare amp reading to overload heaters. They will have a # on them like E-58. Look in the starter box cover and there should be a chart showing the amp range for a E-58 or what ever size heater you have. If running amps are with in range shut down remove guard and belt. Rotate by hand the motor and pump. Any problems like looseness of shaft will indicate severe problems that may be causing the trip. Next if needed ohm out and meggar the motor. you should have found your problem by now!!

Check the oil in the cylinder, check if single phase type on the capacitor to the motor, replace if the speed/torque is low.
check belt for slippage ,if so tighten by pulling the motor backwards after loosening the mountings and then tightnening.
If the motor speed is good and still the pressure build up is low then it is possible that there is low compression in the cylinder. Might have to overhaul to better efficiency. Hope there is no leak in the tank or drain or the cut off valves.

this unit should have a pressure switch that cuts the unit off and on with a adjustment to set the cut out .most switches have two adjustment of them tells the unit to kick on when the pressure is getting low.the other adjustment will raise the pressure to the desired amount.

My air compressor starts fine but dies about 2 mins after starting ?

An 8 hp motor? Is that 220 volt, 440 volt,?? Is the motor getting hot? That would pull quite a few amps on 220, you need to check your wiring to see if it's big enough, I would guess you would need 8 gauge or bigger---check with an electrician.

Husky comp on 1st start builds up 75 lbs and wont restart

Check the reset button on the motor to see if it tripped. The motor may be overheating. Some motors have an internal breaker and they have to cool off before they restart. Also check the pressure switch. Move the switch back and forth ( on and off ) and listen for a click. If it doesn't click with low to no air pressure then the switch is bad.

Honda 5.5 hp air comp. no spark wont run

Most honda engines have an oil sensor that prevents the engine from starting if the oil level is low or oil is dirty. Test coil by disconnecting oil sensor wire. With sensor disconnected coil should fire. If still no fire, check kill wire for short. If still no spark, coil may need to be replaced. enjoy
