There is a valve on the unit that is connected to the motor, this valve is adjustable. Look for the cover housing where the cord goes into a box that is mounted on the tank.. Some models have a lever that turns the unit on and off there. Take the cover off and see if any parts are loose. If not then there should be a screw that you can adjust.

Kobalt gravity spray gun and I have a little air that comes out constantly. Why is that and how do I stop it? Thanks


You must be using a "turbin" which is different and better than a compressor however a turbin runs all the time and air must escape from it unlike a compressor with an airtank the shuts off after the desired pressure is reached it shuts it self off then turns back on with tank pressure drops below what you have set it at- a turbin reaches the pressure you set the regulater at and maintains it constantly NEVER STOP THE AIR FROM PASSING THRU IT in fact a lot of times i do this to remove any dust i may have missed so evrything is working like it should on yr sprayrig..

POP OFF VAVLE ON HEAD KEEPS POPPING UP


The over-pressure relief valve may be defective if the valve is opening before the desired tank pressure is reached. If not, then the shut-off pressure adjustment (if there is one) may be set wrong. You'll need to find out from the manufacturer exactly what static tank pressure the compressor is designed to provide and then determine if it is working correctly. If so, then the relief valve might be defective. DO NOT attempt to defeat the relief valve under any circumstances - it can result in compressor damage or a dangerous tank failure.

Replaced pressure switch now it wont shut off


Hi dijulio28
You will have to adjust the setting so it will shut off.
There should have been instructions that came with the pressure switch that will tell you how to adjust the high level shut off.
You will have to remove the plastic cap, and then you will find the adjustment screws/nuts inside. Some are marked H/L...if yours is, then adjust the H till it acheives the shut off pressure desired to shut the compressor down at the desired pressure.
Go to the following webpage and learn how to adjust your pressure switch.

If the motor doesn't shut off at the desired pressure then your pressure switch is either set too high or is broken/stuck. The pressure leak at 150 psi is the safety valve doing its job opening when the pressure gets to an unsafe level in the tank.

Put new switch on compressor and now wont shut off.


the regulator is failing to do its job. make sure you have it set properly. if you did, you will likely need a new one. also remember to drain the compressor every month to prevent rust from moisture build up in the tank. good luck.

COMPRESSOR BIULDS UP TO 50PSI AND PRESSURE DOES NOT INCREASE. CONTINUES TO RUN BUT NO INCREASE IN PRESSURE.


Is this 50PSI of tank or outlet pressure? The shut off switch should shut off at about 100PSI. If it can not built to that amount, there may be a leak in the tank, a fitting, or the regulator.

Pump spinning but not getting up to speed then shuts off


You have a pressurized system using a pressure tank.This is a case of an air logged pressure tank. Meaning there is more air than water in the pressure tank. The pressure tank must hold 2/3 water and 1/3 air of its total volume. Installed at the tank is the air volume control to take care of this proportion. Should the air volume control malfunction or becomes defective, the air-water ratio is affected. And then,
the pressure tank becomes either air logged or water
logged.
SOLUTION:
1. Shut the power off, and open the discharge line
gate valve to flush the water in the pipe lines.
2. Open the drain plug of the pressure tank to empty
all the water at the pressure tank.
3. Close the drain plug, and put the power on.
4. Start the pump, and set the flow control valve 1/4
open.
5. The pump will normally run.

How do make air compressor shut off at your desired air pressure


You compressor has a pilot valve that controls the tank pressure and the speed of the engine. Locate the brass pilot valve, (It has a flip lever that unloads the compressor) you will notice that it has two locking nuts that allow for adjustment when loosened. Loosen the small lock nut and turn the upper-most part of the pilot valve out to reduce pressure, in to increase pressure. Hope this helps, enjoy.

My porter cable compressor isn't shutting off


Dear JG,
The probably is probably the pressure regulator switch. It's the box the 110 vac wires come from the outlet and go into. Reset the switch or replace it. Note! overfilling an air pressure tank is extremely Dangerous. The tank, fittings, compressor head and or related parts may explode resulting in property damage as well as serious and potentially fatal personal injury.
Good luck,
