SOURCE: motor cuts off before reaching 125 psi

Im guessing this is a recip (piston Compressor) Sounds like your pressure switch may have adjusted itself by vibration. Take the cover off the pressure switch, there should be 1 or 2 screws on the top, one adjusts the pressure, the other adjusts the differential pressure (There may just be one) turn the pressure screw in the direction of the +, you need to do trial and error on this, turn it 1/4 of a turn, then switch on, see what the pressure gets to, then switch off, drain some air off, then adjust as necessary until you get your required pressure. Hope that helps

Can I USE SAE 30 NON DETERGENT OIL IN MY HUSKY 2600 PSI PREASURE WASHER.


Gasoline-powered pressure washers use an SAE 30W motor oil (10W-30) in the engine. Always consult the engine manual for specific instructions and be careful to put the correct oil in the correct place.

Compressor reaches 125 psi but does not shut down


Depending on how old your compressor is, usually inside the pressure regulator cover are instructions on how to adjust the turn-on and shut-off pressures. If not, it usually invloves turning a nut or screw to lessen the pressure on the spring that keeps the contacts closed. Try adjusting the pressure down. If it won't come down to a safe level you will be better off replacing the pressure switch. The number you give above is the Campbell-Hausfeld (they are Husky) part number for the pump and motor assembly so I don't know which CH pressure regulator you need. They are easy to find and easy to replace.

I have a husky brand air compressor with 7.5 h.p. compressors. when pressure builds to its maximum amount, compressor will not shut off it continues to run while pop off valve opens.


Hello,

Ypur pressure switch ( the grey box), is not shutting the motor off. It is is either adjusted higher( too much pressure), or stuck. Unplug it and remove the cover, Then make sure the gold colored lever moves. This is what shuts the power to the motor off. You can plug it in and watch to see if the lever moves before the pop off blows. It depands on the tank rating as to what pressure yours should be set to. Around 125 psi is recomended.

Hope this helps.

I have an Ingersoll Rand T30 10 HP compressor that runs OK and will bulid up 150 psi without any problems. But when the pressure drops enough to kick the pressure switch, the motor won't start. just tries...


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.

Husky Wl6510 air compressor, motor shuts off


One other possibility is that the check valve between the compressor and the tank is letting air flow back against the compressor. Is it having trouble restarting when the pressure lowers to the cut-in pressure? If it doesn't want to start up again, sounding like it's starting against pressure, suspect that valve.

Brand new Husky 60 gal 3.2 hp runs to 30 psi and then starts bogging down and running and bogging down ect. No more pressure over 30psi and i can hear on and off clicking of the motor. Did I wire it wrong...


SOUNDS LIKE IT WIRED FOR 220VOLTS AND YOU HAVE IT PLUGGED INTO 110VOLTS. IF THE MOTOR SAYS 110/220 THEN FOLLOW THE DIAGRAM FOR LOW OR HIGH VOLTAGE. MAKE SURE CORD IS ADEQUATE SIZE. HOPE THIS HELPS.
