Question about Air Tools & Compressors
My air compressor looks to be over heating while building up pressure. When I initially turn the compressor on it pumps to about 75 psi and then shuts off. I have to unplug it and let it cool for a couple of minutes then plug it in and it pumps to just over 100 psi then shuts off again and so on. Is there an over temp switch on the motor or compressor?

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.

First remove the valve using probably about a 1/2" wrench but make sure there is no pressure in the tank before you do so. check the cone and seal by loosening the valve by hand and check for debris. If there is no debris then the problem is either the pressure relief valve or weak pressure regulator but may also be a bad piston seal if it is a direct drive unit.

All of your problems indicate the pressure switch is bad. I don't know which part number to recommend because Campbell Hausfeld (Husky) model numbers have six digits and there aren't any model numbers or part numbers I can find that start with WJ. You need to contact Campbell Hausfeld (1-800-543-6400) to see what part you have to order to fix your compressor.

It sounds like you need to replace the run capacitor , if yours is weak or defective the motor will overheat. Check "Drillspot" for a replacement. Another major cause of overheating is due to a dirty air filter , you should check it first.
