Here is a parts diagram for the air compressor: There are a couple of things to look for on the air compressor. You will need to see if the piston ring is damaged or if you have a broken reed on the valve plate. These are typically the two most common problems with this model.

Your concern is very well placed, at pressures that high a lot of damage can be caused by a failure. According to the manual for this model air compressor the approximate cut-in pressure is 160 psi and the approximate cut-out pressure is 200 psi. Meaning it should pump up to 'about' 200 psi and shut off and not come on again until it gets down to 'about' 160 psi. They say approximate and I say about because it's not an exact science setting the pressure switch. Spring rates are not always exact, pressure guages are not that precise, etc. When turned on, it should shut off at 200 psi +/- 10 lbs. If it goes more than 10 lbs over that (220psi), I'd recommend you get the pressure switch and or guages checked or replaced.

If you have no leaks the first thing I'd check is the ring and cylinder for wear. The cylinder wear is usually pretty obvious, but if you can see light around the piston ring it's bad. The replacement part number is N038785. Also check to make sure no valves on the valve plate part number A09819 are broken or bent.
