Be very careful. I would take it back to store if still under warranty. If not i would not want to mess around with a faulty compressed tank.

SOURCE: Craftsman 6hp 150psi 30gal won't keep running

It sounds like the internal circuit breaker in the motor is heating up and then the breaker trips to shut down the motor. This is the protection so you don't have a fire if the motor burns up. The smell you have is the coils in the motor. Sorry to say that you will need a new motor for this unit. I hope this helps out.

Sears craftsman air compressor model 919.153160 will pump to 150psi but is leaking when it is pumping it will shut off at 150psi but then struggles to restart (tries several times before it does start).

Loosing line a little bit going into tank and see it the pressure continues to come out if so, you might want to consider replacing the check valve. It is designed to keep the pressures in the tank and when they leak off it causes back pressure on the motor making it hard to restart...hope that helps.

Model ihave a dewalt 2 gal air compresssor model# d55141,compressor keeps runing and pressure builds above 150 p.s.i.doesnt shut off

There is a pressure regulator that is contained in the same housing as the on off switch. Take the housing cover off and see if there is a problem with the mechanics on the switch or the seal is bad.

My Porter Cable Job Boss compressor won't shut off. It builds up pressure but just continually runs.

Pressure switch - replace as soon as possible
Overpressure would be possible in that tank - it is dangerous !

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.

Husky Air Compressor problem is the compressor will not shut off after it reaches the shut off pressure it keeps running? checked and supply tube clear....

Replace the pressure shut off switch.First drain the tank and shut off all power.Remove switch and inspect for any debri or water in the tube to the switch.
Also check the settings.max i think is 150psi.So it should fill to say 145 and shut off.

Compressor never shuts off pressure goes to between 100 and 110psi. when switch is turned off holds pressure for long time


The pressure swich needs to be ajusted while compressor is running so you can get preesure in tank up to approx 145psi to 150psi, at which point compressor should cutoff, un till it reachs its minimal tank pressure, at which point the compressor should restart.

Hope this helps

Over Pressure

I suggest trying to adjust the pressure switch, however, it is more likely that the pressure switch is bad and will need replaced. These can be purchased at most hardware stores or After you install it, you will need to readjust it to the pressure it was originally set to so as to not overpressurize the tank. Overpressure is very dangerous so do not use the compressor until it is repaired.
Best wishes!
