Question about Campbell Hausfeld 5 Peak / 1.7 Running HP, 17 Gallon Husky Air Compressor
Yes... it is the pressure control switch. Unplug the compressor and take the cap off of the switch. Look at the contacts. Check for carbon deposits, loose or dropped off contacts and similar. If the contacts are carbonized, you can clean them with a fine sandpaper or an emery board. With the machine unplugged, you should be able to manipulate the contacts with a screwdriver to get a better look at where they should meet, and determine that there is nothing frozen in there. Manipulate the on/off switch and check to make sure that the off position disengages the contacts..Sometimes, sadly, you won't see anything and have to just replace the switch. There are settings that can be adjusted within the switch, and can make a difference, but you will need the switch directions to make changes to them successfully. If you have the switch directions, you can try to adjust the switch.
Hope this helps, --W/D--
