I have worked on several of these little compressors and have found that they suffer from early failure of the cylinder and piston. Unplug compressor and remove cover. Move piston to top of cylinder and check for scratches neer top of cylinder. If scratched, air is bypassing ring and will not reach cutout pressure. Parts are available at your local dewalt parts store or at www.toolpartsdirect.com. However, you could check a few things for other problems that I have seen on low pressure compressors. While the compressor is running spray soapy water on the airlines and drain valve to make sure that they are not leaking. A small leak will prevent the unit from reaching cutout limit. Check for belt slipping. You will see black powder/dust if belt is about to fail. Parts are not expensive. Good Luck

Why does the safety valve go off before the pressure switch on a porter cable 80 gal air compressor


The maximum pressure on most small compressors is 10 bar or 1000kpa which is about 145 psi in the old language most safety valves are set to 150 psi. I suggest you get some one to reduce the pressure switch setting. Running a compressor at elevated pressures does not give you any more air. A reasonable pressure for small compressors is 120 psi

This problem could be caused by 3 different things.

1) The one way Check Valve from the pump to the tank is damaged and allowing the air to go in and out.

2) The piston ring and cylinder sleeve are damaged.

3) The valve plate has a broken reed.

Compressor relief valve opens 150lbs on my d55141


That is the compressor's holding capacity 150psi. Therefore, the cut-out pressure has been reached. The safety valve opens to relieve the excessive psi. Compressor should come on at 120 psi.

My porter cable pancake PSI 150 keeps running will not shut off


The compressor has a max psi setting of 150.If the pressure is not reaching this or is only stabilizing at a low pressure you have an air leak around a gasket somewhere.If it is reaching 150psi and not shutting off your pressure switch is bad.Replace it.Check your owner's manual for a part number or go to www.factoryauthorizedoutlet.com to find the part.

Sounds like a pressure switch to me. I would like to ask you a few more questions, let me ask you this, is the tank set at 60 Psi or the regulator? You can email me at phoenix.repair@hotmail.com for faster response time.

Does not auto turn off


Sounds like the pressure switch is shorted together. Unwire the switch and see if it shuts off.
