Pressure drops significantly before compressor starts


Some pressure switches can be adjusted with an allen wrench. You can't get more pressure from the regulator knob of the pressure isn't in the tank. look at the pressure switch with the cover off. If you see a screw with a spring around it. turn it clock wise 1/4 turn at a time until 125 is reached. The motor will labor more, so 2 hp may not be enough.

Grundfos pump


It sounds like you have a bad pressure switch. I would also check the pre-charge pressure in the expansion tank. This needs to be 2lbs less then the "cut-in" pressure of the switch IE: 30-50 switch 28lbs air in pressure tank.

Cant pull start the pressure washer


Turn water off to the pressure washer, release pressure by applying hand pressure to sprayer. After water pressure is released, turn water back on (should not have motor running without water.) then try to pull start.

I had a water line bust. After fixing the leak, I lost water pressure. Someone tried to fix the problem and now we have little to no water flow. I have to pumps . The smaller pump that feeds the house is...


The nut on the larger spring in the pump pressure switch: Usually the larger nut in the pump pressure control switch adjusts the pump cut-on ("cut-in") AND pump cut-off pressures simultaneously. This is the left-hand spring (and nut) in our photo. That means that whatever the gap is between the cut-on pressure and the cut-off pressure, that gap is maintained, but the entire operating range of the pump is raised or lowered. Turning the large nut clockwise RAISES BOTH the cut-on and cut-off pressures. So turning the large nut clockwise shifts the whole operating pressure range of the pump UP to HIGHER pressures.
Conversely, turning the large nut counter-clockwise will lower the whole pump operating range. This is the simplest adjustment to make.
Photo (left) courtesy of a reader.
The nut atop the smaller spring in the pump pressure switch: this nut is used to narrow or widen the gap between the pump cut-on and pump cut-off pressures. This is the right-hand spring (and nut) in our photo).

Turning the small nut clockwise (tighter) will RAISE the CUT-OFF pressure, and vice versa, loosening or turning the nut counter-clockwise will lower the cut-off pressure. Watch out! If you loosen this nut too much you can set the cut-off pressure below the cut-on pressure and the pump will turn on and run forever (or until it burns up.)
Which nut to turn in the pump pressure switch control, and which direction to turn it, are usually visible on a label inside the pressure switch cover. Above we show photos of a common Square D water pump pressure control switch (Schneider Electric) and the label with pump control adjustment details. [Click to enlarge].
Here are Example Pump Pressure Switch Adjustment Instructions from Square -D Understanding how pump pressure control switches work and which way to turn which of the two nuts in the control can be confusing.
On a Square-D Pumptrol® 9013FSF-2 pump pressure switch, for example, Square D tells us that we
  • Turn the Range Nut #1 (the larger spring and nut) clockwise (to the right or "down") to raise [both] cut-on and cut-off pressures. This is "tightening the nut down" against the spring. ("Rightie-tightie, leftie-loosie" as Mara Gieseke says to her kids). Thanks to reader Rise for this clarification.

    In other words, adjusting the pressure on this spring shifts the whole operating range of the switch up or down, but keeps the difference between cut-in and cut-out the same, whatever it happens to be (typically it's about 20 psi from the factory.)

    If you want the pump to turn ON (cut-in) sooner
    , that is, at a higher water pressure, turn the nut clockwise or "tighter".

    If you want the water pump to turn ON (cut-in) later, that is, at a lower water pressure, turn the nut counterclockwise or "looser".

  • Turn the Differential Nut #2 (the smaller spring and nut) clockwise to raise the cut-out pressure.

    If you want the water pump to turn OFF (cut out or cut-off) at a higher water pressure, turn this nut clockwise or "tighter".

    If you want the water pump to turn OFF (cut out or cut-off) at a lower water pressure, turn this nut counter clockwise or "looser"

    Here is why the small nut is called the "Differential"

How do you adjust the on-off pressure settings on this switch?


Unfortunately you didn't give the complete number. There should be 3 more numbers like J15 etc. Anyway, remove the cover. Use a nut-driver and adjust the large nut for the CUTOUT pressure. If your turn the nut clockwise (tighten or turn it in) it will increase the cutout pressure. If you turn it counter clockwise (loosen or turn out) it will lower the pressure. This the pressure that will turn the unit off. If your model has an adjustable differential, it will be the smaller nut. This will be the CUT IN pressure. It will adjust the same as the other adjustment.

Shouldn't there be fuel pressure with the key turned to the run position? I only get fuel pressure when the starter is engaged and turning the engine over.


no you will not have fuel pressure untill the engine is running

fuel pressure is not required to start the engine...only to keep it running

when you turn the key on the computer send a signal to turn the fuel pump on for a second and prime the engine...once it starts the fuel pump relay kicks the fuel pump on then you have pressure.

High/low pressure spring settings


Generally, the pressure switch is not adjusted more than once or twice in the life of the compressor since the discharge pressure can be adjusted with pressure regulator. However the life of the compressor can be increased if lower pressure settings are maintained. Your pressure switch was set at the factory to a setting of about 120 - 150. If your cutout pressure is higher than 150 surely lower.
STEP 1: Turn Main Calibration Screw ( center screw with large spring) clockwise to increase pressure and turn counter-clockwise to decrease pressure.

STEP 2: Turn Differential Pressure Screw (small spring) clockwise to decrease cut-in pressure and
turn counter-clockwise to increase cut-in pressure.

Differential Pressure is defined as the difference between cut-out and cut-in pressure. There should be about 7 to 12 psi difference between cut-out and cut-in.
In our shop we rarely adjust more than a couple of turns because these switches are sensitive.
Good Luck and please post again if you have other concerns about your compressor.
