SOURCE: need to know how to adjust pressure regulator for low/high limits

sorry to be contradictory here, but better not to mislead or scare someone... Thepressure relief valve has absolutly nothing to do with cut in cut out pressure settings.the pressure relief valve is abrass fitting on the outside of the tank hexagonal fitting with a thin shaft coming out of the centre normaly with a ring on it not unlike akey ring .THAT is a blow off valve a safety device, that long before the air pressure is too great for the tank,will blow offthe air pressure in the tank ,try it, grab the ring and pull it out and it will dis charge any air in the tank ,that ios what it will do if thair is too great in the tank.. tanks are pressure tested and the appropriate valve fitted. NOW FOR YOUR ORIGINAL PROBLEM .you will find a control box ,useualy black or dark brown bakerlite cover,the electric cord goes into it ,also there will be another electric cord coming out and going to the electric motor that drives the compressor . If you take the cover off this you will find the cut in and cut out adjustments that allow you to set the cut in and cut out pressure as high or low as you want,that is whith in the capascity of the unit.It is self explanitory and there will be ( or should be ) instructions inside the cover .If you have any difficulty come back to me preferably with themotor and compressor sizes and i will walk you through it NOW AS MUCH AS THIS GOES AGAINST THE GRAIN, SHAG79 IT WOULD BE FAR BETTER IF YOU KNEW A BIT MORE ABOUT THE THINGS YOU ARE ADVISING THEM ABOUT EXPLOSIONS AND DEATH !!! WHAT ARE YOU-----A ******???

SOURCE: i have a ingersoll rand type-30,model#2475 7.5

from what you are describing it sounds like you are missing a couple wires somewhere or you do not know what you are looking for. The pressure switch, low oil switch motor starter coil, and overload relay should be wired in series to provide a control circuit for the motor starter. I would highly advise seeking the help of a certified electrician if you are not experienced in working with these machines. You can not only risk personal injury, but also damage a lot of expensive electrical item's real quick if it is not done correctly.

WHY DOES A SM75 INGERSOLL RAND COMPRESSOR CUT OUT ON LOW PRESSURE OIL


Low oil pressure. Are you adding a lot of oil. Have you check the oil level. Switch could also be bad.

Keeps tripping the reset button after done building up pressure, why?


Since I am not there and can't see what is happening this might just be a WAG, but when my air compressor does that, it is either the pressure has been set too high, and when it reaches the maximum rated setting it trips the over pressure switch that trips the reset button.

It has also happened when the pressure regulator whent out and did not sense the pressure that it was supposed to turn off on.

Large volume of air coming out of vent


If the are coming out the vent is located at the pressure switch you have a stuck or bad tank check valve. Take the small copper line off at the pressure switch. If it blows air. replace the check valve. The check valve is located in top of the receiver tank. The copper tube removed goes back to one side of the check valve. Just remove the small tube from the check valve. Make sure there is no air pressure on the tank. remove the copper tube frome the compressor head and from the top of the check valve. Using the proper size socket,wrench,etc. remove the check valve. Inspect. If it has some type foreign material in it clean. If you fell that will correct the problem install in reverse order. I usually replace them if I have gone to the trouble of removing. Good luck!

My SS5 won't make any pressure. I drained the tank to around 10 psi to drain moisture out of the tank and it built the pressue back up to around 120 psi but won't build any higher. The shut-off point is...


Sounds like the pressure regulator has gone bad. That controls how much PSI your system is aloud to have. If this fails it will not fill to max capacity. I would replace that and all will work just fine.

Cuts off with no reason


hi mate when the reach there working pressure e.g.150psi/10bar they shut off and then when the pressure drops to a pressure of e.g. 100 psi 7 bar they automatically start back up and pump back upto they working temperature or if it dont start at all it could either be a faulty pressure switch or a fualty star delta starter if its 3 phase 415 volts if its 240volt there are only a pressure switch which will be faulty get a sparky in to sort it out there buggers to mess with 415volts 240 volts easy
