SOURCE: manual for husky air compressor ''easy to go''

For what it's worth Compressors are intended to be turned on and forgot (except for the noise). just for grins lets assume you have the stapler and air hose. you need to hook up the air hose to the compressor there usually is one or to either couplers or npt fittings (threaded). attach the hose to the compressor and using a quick coupler (prefered because it allows the gun to swivel) connect the gun to the hose. turn on the compressor and wait for it to build up pressure and *******. at this point you will need to locate the regulator on the compressor. it will be a knob next to one or two dial gages. crank the regulator a quarter turn either direction while watching the gages. It (one of them) moved either up or down . now you know how the regulator works and your almost a contractor. on to the stapler, load it and find a bit of scrap (what your working on would be best.) now shoot a staple into something and see if it goes in far enough or to far. adjust the regulator to compensate. do this until one of three things happens A you find the right staple depth B the compressor kicks on again, wait for it to turn off C you run out of nails, beer or intrest in the project. once you have found the correct pressure for your needs. you may fire at will you don't need to wait for the compressor to cycle while running the stapler just during set up. now your a contractor go have a beer.

just a last tip if you find you don't have the correct couplers home depot, harbor freight or amazon (online) are great sources for parts.

good luck and mind your fingers

SOURCE: Husky 1.5 HP 6 gallon compressor motor runs but

Your manual pressure release valve might be stuck open or blocked open by some debree. It should have a steel pull ring on the end of it. Exercise it and try running it again. Also the pressure regulator adjustment might have been backed off to zero. Crank it clockwise and see if this helps. Check the air output lines from the compressor to the tank for leaks.

SOURCE: husky air compressor/1.5 hp

Compressors pull a lot of juice that is why they come with a large power cord. If you use a small extension cord with it it will easily pop a breaker. So first check all your breakers. Second thing is check your manual to see if you have a reset switch on you compressor, as most do. It should be a small, red switch (rocker or push button type), located between the pump motor and compressor switch. The third is a long shot, check to see if the bleeder valve is functioning correctly. It will be the small copper tube running from the pump to the switch. Just make sure the small lever is free to move.

If this fails to resolve the problem then it is probably the main switch itself. That is a warranty issue. If it's out of warranty then your going to have to either repair or replace the switch yourself. Please feel free to ask for help if you need it in latter case.

SOURCE: How do you replace the regulator valve on a husky

I could not find parts for my husky compressor and had the same problem as you describe. I went to lowes and purchased fittings to draw air out of the safety port. Remove the safety pop valve and install t-fittings to allow you to reinstall safety valve and also a quick connect. If you want to be able to regulate the pressure, install a simple pressure regulator before the quick connect (also avail. at lowes). This remedy is not pretty but sure works great and simple. Problem with husky regulator is stripped thread /knob. Sometimes you can turn the knob if you drain air from tank; this will release the spring tension on the regulator knob.

How do I adjust tank pressure


By letting air out.

Remove the pressure regulator plasic cover (usually one screw) and there will be 2 adjustment screws. One is for "cut-in" pressure (to start the compressor when the pressure drops below the set point), the other is for "cut-out" (to stop the compressor once that set point has been reached.

Compressor reaches 125 psi but does not shut down


Depending on how old your compressor is, usually inside the pressure regulator cover are instructions on how to adjust the turn-on and shut-off pressures. If not, it usually invloves turning a nut or screw to lessen the pressure on the spring that keeps the contacts closed. Try adjusting the pressure down. If it won't come down to a safe level you will be better off replacing the pressure switch. The number you give above is the Campbell-Hausfeld (they are Husky) part number for the pump and motor assembly so I don't know which CH pressure regulator you need. They are easy to find and easy to replace.

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.
