I have a emglo air comperssor. After it nfuns for a period of time , it has a hard time restarting or it will trip the reset button


This usually means your tank check valve is stuck open. It is a valve where the air line from the pump goes into the tank. The valve lets air into the tank then closes when the pump shuts down. This allows the air in the pump to be bled off so the motor can restart when the pressure in the tank drops down. Emglo compressor parts are getting harder and harder to find so try removing the check valve and seeing if there is something in the valve that's keeping it from closing. Sometimes you can clear/clean them out but more often than not the valve has to be replaced. Depending on the model you have, you may be able to find an after-market or generic check valve that will work.

Turn on frecuntly


If it is restarting that frequently you have an air leak somewhere. First check the drain valve on the bottom of the tank. If that's closed do the following to find the leak: You should remove the cover on the manifold where the guages are and get a spray bottle with soapy water in it. Let the compressor run until it shuts off then unplug it so it won't keep restarting while your working. Spray the soapy water on things like the copper line from the pump to the tank, the pressure regulator, guages and around the tank drain valve. You are looking for bubbling from an air leak. Make sure it's from a leak and not just boiling the solution off as parts of the compressor will get quite hot while it's filling the tank. Whatever is leaking has to be tightened or replaced.

Can I adjust the tank pressure on a Husky 1506 compressor. pop off keeps engageing, so I need to adjust so that compressor shut off automatically


Before you change any parts, check that the pop valve is not faulty. Look closely at the pop valve to read set release pressure. If the valve is releasing before marked reading, replace valve instead to one slightly higher. The pressure may or may not be adjustable at the switch (need to replace the switch) depending on switch installed at the factory (parts list does not give enough information). If your switch has a remove-abel cap with adjustment screws/nuts, post again with model number of switch for info on adjustment. Good luck

I have a 80 gallon 5 hp ingersoll model #2475N5 serial #30T900896. Im using 10-3 wire on 40amp doible pole breaker. as its building air when it hits @50 psi it slows down. if I pull the pop off valve on...


T wo suggestions. 1- check the check valve located in top of the receiver tank by letting the unit pump up to 50 psi. shut it off and loosen the copper tube at the HP cylinder. if no air blows out the check valve is good. If it's bad it will blow until it empties the tank. If the check valve is bad replace it. 2- Tighten the drive belt. If neither corrects the problem remove the guard and rotate the pump by hand. If it's hard to rotate you have a pump problem.

Compressor won't kick back on when its suppose too


The tank check valve is probably bad. Folow the large discharge line off the head, disconnecting one end of it. If you get air out of the line you have a bad check valve. If you don't get air you are probably looking at a valve job.

What pressure is it popping off at? You might have to adjust the pressure switch to a lower setting.

Air compressor does not regulate pressure to set point.


Emglo airmate compressors are set from the factory to shut off at around 125psi. There is an adjustment (remove cover to pressure switch) that will controll the cut-off pressure but it is not recommended changing the factory setting. There is also a safety valve installed that will open at about 160psi. It is a small brass device with a pull ring. When things go wrong with the pressure switch (rectangular box with power cord coming out of one side) the safety will pop open. There is a pressure regulator with round knob on panel that will lower the pressure to the tool, however this regulator does not control the pressure switch. Let you compressor run untill it shuts off and verify pressure to be about 125, if it is then all as well. Good Luck
