Air Compressor sometimes reaches 50psi and kicks circuit breaker. The motor beld vibrates before kicking breaker off.

Hi Bobby:
Sounds like the load on the circuit exceeds the capacity of the breaker. This happens because as the pressure builds, the resistance of the compressor increases. When it reaches 50 psi (in your circumstance) the circuit starts to draw more amps than the breaker is rated for. so it trips.
- Find a circuit with a higher rating, or
- Decrease the diameter of the drive pulley. This will give a better mechanical advantage and possibly solve the problem.
Hope this helps

How to Adjust an Air Compressor Regulator

  • Plug the air compressor into the appropriate electrical socket. There are a few air compressors that come with a 4-prong electrical cord, but most of them will come equipped with a 3-prong electrical cord. The 3-prong electrical cord is set for use with a standard 110 outlet. The 4-prong electrical cord is generally used for 220 outlets.
  • Turn on the machine.
  • The air compressor should be fill completely to the range from 100 to over 200 per-square-inches, depending on the unit capacity.
  • The manufacture guide will inform you which tools can be used with the unit once it has reached full pressure.
  • The tool should be connected to the air hose and the air hose to the compressor.
  • To drop air pressure you should turn the regulator adjustment knob counterclockwise and to increase the air pressure you should turn it clockwise.

My 5 hp compessor does not reach the 90 # psi & shutdown I don't hear the hissy sound that it use to make but can hold the re-set button to get up to the 90psi. why is the motor stopping b4 re

well part of the reason air compressors usually stop reaching full capacity when they get older is either due to water in the bottom of the tank or the seals in the tank not holding it as well. you need to make sure you have the motor bolted down tight still and that nothing is pumpoing out air from the top of the compressor except the exhaust of course. compressors are pretty simple there's not much to them either so there's less to go wrong or troubleshoot.

Why my air compressor want shut off after building up pressure

If it is building up to the full rated pressure and there are no air leaks in the hoses then it is most likely the pressure switch. It is item 111 in this parts diagram.

I have ABAC 270ltrs italian comprosser. after the comprosser reaches its full capacity air starts to leak from its switch. can u pls help me solve this promblem

In 80% of the cases this is the problem. I sulose that you use a lot this compressor so the one way valve gets worn out. The first stel is to pull out the smal hose when the unit stops and see if air escapes. If so then change the black piece in the photo. It will last for a small period of time. I recomend to change the piece in the photo.
This is a way to solve the problem if air escapes trough the small hose.7

Compressor relief valve opens 150lbs on my d55141

That is the compressor's holding capacity 150psi. Therefore, the cut-out pressure has been reached. The safety valve opens to relieve the excessive psi. Compressor should come on at 120 psi.

Compressor runs loaded continuously even in low/no demand periods

Each compressor should be checked several times per year as to length of time it takes to fill an empty tank to set pressure. This will provide chart of performance / efficiency. I believe that compressor #2 is not running to full capacity. If compressor # 2 is suffering from leaking valves or headgasket the head and air discharge temp will higher than compressor #1. Good luck!

Not pumping up to capacity, motor and compressor working fine,

If your pump is shutting off before it reaches it's max psi. then you need to adjust you switch. Under the black case there are two adjustment screws. One is the high\low adjustment, the other is high pressure cut off.
The first will change when the pump turns on and off for your low psi setting and the high setting simultaneously.
The second will allow you to raise or lower just the high setting. There should be a diagram under the black cap to show which is which. Adjust the high side only and just a 1\4 turn then run the compressor and see if that takes care of the high setting.
