SOURCE: Air Compressor, low pressure
does the compressor keep running all the time but never gets above 40 or does it turn off at 40?
if it is turning off at 40 I would try using another gauge just to be sure it is 40psi, and if that is the case then you probably have a faulty pressure switch, if the compressor is constantly runnign but won't get past the 40psi then you may have a worn out compressor, check the oil for either a low level or if the oil is dirty, if it is you may just need to drain and refill but if that doesn't fix the issue then you will need to rebuild the compressor

U NEED TO ADJUST THE PRESSURE SWITCH ON THE BACKUP TO A LOWER PSI. TO COME ON AFTER THE PRIMARY. EXAMPLE: PRESSURE SWITCH ON PRIMARY COMP. SET AT 140-175 PSI AND BACKUP SET AT 135-170 PSI. U CAN USUALLY TURN ONE CENTER SCREW IN THE PRESSURE SWITCH COUNTERCLOCKWISE TO LOWER THE PSI.

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 ******???

When it shuts down, press DISPLAY SELECT button once and use the up down arrows to see the code just before shutdown.
HIGH AIREND TEMP
HIGH AIR PRESSURE
LOW SUMP PRESSURE
PRESSURE OR TEMP SENSOR FAIL
CHECK MOTOR ROTATION
FAN MOTOR OVERLOAD
I am assuming this has a Intellisys controller.

when you remove the pressure switch cover,there is a screw on the top screw clockwise means increasing air pressure and anticlockwise means decreasing the drlivery air pressure
