Question about Northern Industrial 2 Hp Twin Tank Electric Air Compressor
YOUR COMPRESSOR MUST UNLOAD WHEN IT SHUTS OFF SO IT DOESNT START UNDER A LOAD THE NEXT TIME. MOST SMALL COMPRESSORS UNLOAD WITH A VALVE ON THE SIDE OF THE PRESSURE SWITCH.REPAIR VALVE OR REPLACE THE PRESSURE SWITCH (KNOW PSI OR TAKE SWITCH WITH YOU).YOUR COMPRESSOR IS STARTING WITH AIR PRESSURE ON TOP OF THE PISTON. CHECK VALVE COULD BE BAD BUT IT SHOULD BE BLOWING AIR ALL THE TIME.

My first guess would be an electrical fault in the pressure sensor, but as your compressor only does this after it works for a while, the problem should be related to heating, so, I'm betting on a seizing cylinder or bearing. Try running your compressor with a very wet towel wrapped around the cylinder to see if the problem is indeed heat related.
