Bad pressure switch or it is wired incorrectly replace switch and check the wiring or could be out of adjustment you compressor is made for max 125psi should be a screw to adjust on the pressure switch near where the wires are connected back out counter clockwise to lower and see if that turns it off

Turning the switch to on, there is no power getting to the compressor.
What do you think could be the problem?

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.

Can I adjust the tank pressure on a Husky 1506 compressor. pop off keeps engageing, so I need to adjust so that compressor shut off automatically


Before you change any parts, check that the pop valve is not faulty. Look closely at the pop valve to read set release pressure. If the valve is releasing before marked reading, replace valve instead to one slightly higher. The pressure may or may not be adjustable at the switch (need to replace the switch) depending on switch installed at the factory (parts list does not give enough information). If your switch has a remove-abel cap with adjustment screws/nuts, post again with model number of switch for info on adjustment. Good luck

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.

Husky Q26 will not build pressure. Where do I buy parts?


First check the check valve and also if it has an unloader valve make sure it is closing.

The main check valve is often right where the air goes into the tank. The unloader can be integral to the pressure switch or on the compressor.

I have a Husky model Y6010 air compressor.


First remove the valve using probably about a 1/2" wrench but make sure there is no pressure in the tank before you do so. check the cone and seal by loosening the valve by hand and check for debris. If there is no debris then the problem is either the pressure relief valve or weak pressure regulator but may also be a bad piston seal if it is a direct drive unit.

The compressor relief valve keeps popping, compressor runs


What pressure is it popping off at? You might have to adjust the pressure switch to a lower setting.
