Question about Ridgid 17038 4.5 Gallon Oil Free Twinstack Air Compressor
Compressor auto recharge start ok at 120 psi but will not shut down to 175 psi when safety valve engages
From what you've written for your problem, I would say that your pressure switch is malfunctioning, as this is the part that regulates when the unit starts and shuts down.
It might just be the settings of the load spring, If your familiar with working on electrical devices see if you can manually engage or disengage the pressure switch. If this turns the unit of and on, it leaves you with only two problems. The unit is not reading the pressure or it's not sensing the pressure. Either way it calls for a pressure switch replacement
Hope this helps.
