    DOES IT HAVE AN ELECTRIC MOTOR OR IS IT GASOLINE

    It sounds like this is what it is supposed to do! When the tank pressure falls below 80 PSI or so, does the motor restart again to fill the tank back to max PSI?

Dont understand the question , does the engine shut off after p-max is met , or does it continue to run , if it continues to run then you have a pressure switch problem

They will run until the air pressure is at the max, then will shut off. This is normal. When you use the air & it goes below a certain level, the motor should run again. If the pressure is not reaching the max value, then the motor may be overheating.

POP OFF VAVLE ON HEAD KEEPS POPPING UP


The over-pressure relief valve may be defective if the valve is opening before the desired tank pressure is reached. If not, then the shut-off pressure adjustment (if there is one) may be set wrong. You'll need to find out from the manufacturer exactly what static tank pressure the compressor is designed to provide and then determine if it is working correctly. If so, then the relief valve might be defective. DO NOT attempt to defeat the relief valve under any circumstances - it can result in compressor damage or a dangerous tank failure.

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.

Mac 5200 pumps pressure to 140lbs. then blows off pressure until 120lbs is reached. Cut in is about 115lbs. I have replaced main switch and it still does same. Tried small adjustments on mainswicth st


Check your Safety Valve. It is on the back of the tank sometimes on one of the pressure switch ports or on the air manifold. It has a ring on it to pull to relieve pressure from the tank. The spring in these can get overheated so they don't hold air unless the tank gets over 165 psi. When the motor is running hold the center pin in to see if you have the same results. If the valve holds air until you let it go, replace it.

I've messed with the settings on the three springs inside the mdr21 pressure switch and don't know how to adjust them correctly and which does what? I'm getting max pressure at 130psi and blow off to...


Normally you can find the setting instructions on the underside of the switch cover.
In almost all compressor switches you will find two adjustment screws. One is for the "Cut-in/Cut-out" or "Cut-on/Cut-off" psi. The other for "Cut-out" psi only. If there is no label the easiest way to tell the difference is by the springs. The "Cut-in/Cut-out" is the larger of the two springs.

Start by turning the smaller or "Cut-out" screw counter-clockwise. This will decrease the Cut-out psi. I would say to back it off 1 1/2 or 2 turns. Now run the compressor and check where your max psi is. Your target is 105psi if your present "Cut-in" psi is 80psi. Once you have that setting at 105psi, move to the larger screw or "Cut-in/Cut-out" adjustment. Turn the screw clock-wise making 1/4 turns adjustment until you reach the 100/125 psi.

By blow off I assume you mean the unloader valve. There really isn't any setting for the unloader because it's built in to the valve itself.

Since there are some variations for this switch please let me know and I'll explain how to make the adjustments for your type.
Or if you are unclear about anything here just let me know and I will be happy to help you out.
Hope this helps.

Hitachi twin stack problem.


You stated that the compressor started up fine. I'll assume it reached it's max psi then cut out. Then upon reaching it's cut-in psi the motor ran slowly for a few seconds, then kicked off. I also assume you mean check valve when you refer to the non return valve.
If this sounds about right then. The first thing I would do is bleed out all the air from both the tank and the pump supply line leading from the pump head to the tank's check valve. You can do this by simply loosening the fitting that attaches the line at the head or the check valve. Once done try running the compressor again.
The purpose of this is to check the unloader valve. This valve bleeds off the pressure that remains in the compression cylinder and the supply line up to the check valve. When functioning normaly it will bleed off this pressure once the motor shuts off. If it is not working correctly then when your compressor starts back up (once it is already been filled) the piston will be working against a psi close to the max psi.

If the problem reoccurs only after the compressor has reached it's max psi, then the unloader valve is most likely the problem. If however it will not start up at all even after a complete bleed then it has to be something internal to the pump and\or motor.

Please try this and let me know (or repost) your findings.
If it's the unloader valve I should be able to explain how to repair this valve.
Good luck.

Compressor shuts off before reaching max pressure


Yes,but if the max is 125 you don't want to increase it above 110 and set off the pressure relief valve.

I'm loosing air on my 3hp air compressor, as soon as i pull that trigger on my compressor for about 2 second it looses air. No holes in the air hose nothing is wrong but just loosing air


Are you talking about the power switch or the trigger of an air tool?
If it is the power switch then how much air are you losing?
At start up most air compressors will lose a small amount of air through the unloader valve. As the compressor builds psi this valve will close. Once the max psi is reached the motor will shut off then a few seconds later the unloader valve will open again releasing the pressure in the cylinder. If your leak does not abate as psi builds you might need to replace your switch and valve.
