Everything I read in the owners manual suggest you take unit in for a trained service tech to repair. It could possibly be a few things causing this but from what I can see there are not that many replaceable repairable parts for this. Good luck

Air compressor not unloading


Check the pressure switch. The unloader valve is actually in the pressure switch where the small air line from the tank check valve attaches to it. When the pressure switch turns the motor off it then lets the head pressure bleed off so the motor can restart the next time pressure drops in the tank. If it's not working and bleeding off the head pressure the cold start valve (the one with the pin in it) also won't open so the motor can restart and warn up properly.

Compressors


The pressure regulator on an air compressor is designed to let the pump motor run until the pressure in the tanks reaches their safe level. While you are using the air the pressure drops in the tanks until it reaches the level where the pressure switch turns the motor on again and refills the tanks to their rated level. The pressure where these two things happen is usually with in ten psi above or below the rated levels because few regulators are so precise and are affected by temperature that they turn and off exactly at the rated pressures. If a pressure regulator is damaged or broken it is possible for the tank to either reach unsafe high levels or not turn on when the pressure drops to where it should restart the motor. If you are in doubt, have the regulator checked or replaced as overpressured tanks are very dangerous.

Compressor runs but the air bleeds out think it might be stuck reed


If your compressor reaches the cut-out pressure (or very close) , most likely not reed valves. Usually air leaking when compressor is shut off is result of leaking check valve at the tank. Look for brass valve and remove. Somtimes the valve is repairable if debris is keeping valve open. Clean or replace as needed.

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.

Shut off before it reaches 150 psi turned up the regulator up but it stops about 60 psi should go to 150 psi


the air regulator only regulates the flow of the air as to how much. their is a pressure switch that turns on and off the power to the compressor when it reaches it's set pressure.
follow the plug wire to a small box this should have the switch arm you flip to start it.
remove the cover with the unit un-plug.
there will be a spring with a nut on top tightening this nut or loosening it will adjust when the pump will cut off.
the best way is to test by adjusting one way and watching the pressure till it hits the desired rating you want.
if it keeps pumping un-plug the unit then back off the nut or tighten till you hear a click then plug the unit back in it should not run then.
drain the air and re try the unit it should cut off at the pressure then if so your fixed look for burnt contacts if their black and have little craters on the contacts then that hole switch should be replaced and you can buy them at the presetting you need.
hope this helps

When the compressor comes up to pressure and kicks off, you should normally hear a gasp of air escaping. That gasp is the release of pressure from the compressor itself - not the tank, and it is supposed to get released so that the compressor can restart without being preloaded with compressed air. My guess is that the gasp is not happening. It is probably some debris or a gummy mechanism. The mechanism is supposed to be triggered by the same mechanism that shuts off the motor.

The problem that you describe is caused by air leaking past the tank check valve. Easy to test/ detect faulty valve. With pressure in tank, unplug unit from power supply (for safety) and remove airline from checkvalve at tank, (usually a brass valve). Listen or test for air leak. If leaking replace with a universal in-tank check valve available from www.grainger.com. Good luck, with your repair!

Air compressor motor stalls under pressure


this sounds like a bad pressure switch.if the unit is not shutting off at the same pressure each time this would be the cause.2 if the pressure is not unloading the air pressure on the compressor side of the unit it will cause the unit to struggle when it starts a cycle because the piston is under a load .how this works is say the unit starts from 0 psi when it get to the desired pressure you have it set on the unit kicks off . the other adjustment most units have on them is what pressure to cycle back on.so when the unit reaches say 100 pounds ,it kicks off and bleeds the air off the compressor side so when it starts back up it wont start up with pressure on the piston.

I have worked on many makita compressors and have run-across this problem on a few of them. Your compressor has a check valve that is supposed to hold tank pressure after the switch reaches set pressure. There is an unloader valve built into the pressure switch that releases the pressure in the discharge hose after the unit shuts off. The unloader allows the compressor to restart with-out any pressure in the discharge line. If the brass check valve is leaking pressure back into the system, air will leak out of the unloader valve. Follow the discharge line to the tank and you will see the brass check valve. To test valve for fault, run the compressor till it builds around 80 psi and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Remove the 1/4" hose connector from the check valve and check for air leaking out of the valve. If it is leaking you can order form www.toolpartsdirect.com. or call the makita 1-800 number. The price is about the same. Good Luck on your repair.
