Question about Campbell Hausfeld 26 - Gallon Air Compressor
My compressor was running but it didn,t seem to want to shut off with the regulator so after a bit of running it just quit on it,s own like the engine laboured down and quit now it won,t run at all what could be the problem . when you turn it on there is nothing when you plug it in and turn the switch on i wounder if it ran too long and over heated what should i do. could it have burned the pressure switch. how do i hook it up direct.
You don't connect it up direct unless you want to destroy the compressor and burn the motor out
check for a reset or thermal overload button if it just shut down when over pressured
replace the pressure control switch is the best fix after checking out the motor condition

Your comperssor is oilless type and suffers from short cylinder / piston life. When the compressor no longer reaches cycle pressure the cylinder / piston should be replaced. These parts are available at www.chpower.com I believe that the part number is wl210300aj. Not expensive, enjoy.

Generally, the pressure switch is not adjusted more than once or twice in the life of the compressor since the discharge pressure can be adjusted with pressure regulator. However the life of the compressor can be increased if lower pressure settings are maintained. Your pressure switch was set at the factory to a setting of about 120 - 150. If your cutout pressure is higher than 150 surely lower.
STEP 1: Turn Main Calibration Screw ( center screw with large spring) clockwise to increase pressure and turn counter-clockwise to decrease pressure.
STEP 2: Turn Differential Pressure Screw (small spring) clockwise to decrease cut-in pressure and
turn counter-clockwise to increase cut-in pressure.
Differential Pressure is defined as the difference between cut-out and cut-in pressure. There should be about 7 to 12 psi difference between cut-out and cut-in.
In our shop we rarely adjust more than a couple of turns because these switches are sensitive.
Good Luck and please post again if you have other concerns about your compressor.

You have a valve plate problem . It could be a slipped "o" ring to a bad reed valve. There are rebuild kits for that purpose. The kits include a valve plate assembly. It covers all the bases. When you look at this area pay attention to the partitions of the head gasket/"o"ring. You may avoid the cost of the kit.

Remove the pressure switch and look for oil inside it, where it senses air pressure. Also may just be burn't contacts. Clean them with Wet&Dry paper.
Your compressor is TOO Small on the CFM side to power high volume air tools, like a cut off wheel,air chisel or your impact gun ,if you use it too long.
It's not tank volume,it is the compressors ability to make air quicker than you use it, and at a steady 100# or more,none stop.
The only real fix is a very large single stage unit or the best is a two stage. Those two options are expensive.
