Question about Campbell Hausfeld 5 Peak / 1.7 Running HP, 17 Gallon Husky Air Compressor

HUSKY 26 Gallon Shuts Down After <75PSI!?

I have the same problem! My 26 Gal HUSKY Vertical Compressor has a mind of it's own. It automatically shuts down just before reaching 75 PSI. I have emptied the drain and a small amount of water came out. Did that a couple more times to test it out. I still encounter the same problem. It's almost as if it is overheating or a circuit breaker is tripping within the unit itself. If anyone has resolved this, I'd really appreciate a helping hand! Thanks in advance!

Possibly the pressure switch needs to be adjusted to reach a higher pressure. Trace the power cord into a box that also is piped into the pressure line from the compressor. If the pressure works itself back down again, use thread-locker fluid on the adjustment screw to hold it's setting.

    Compressor reaches 125 psi but does not shut down


    Depending on how old your compressor is, usually inside the pressure regulator cover are instructions on how to adjust the turn-on and shut-off pressures. If not, it usually invloves turning a nut or screw to lessen the pressure on the spring that keeps the contacts closed. Try adjusting the pressure down. If it won't come down to a safe level you will be better off replacing the pressure switch. The number you give above is the Campbell-Hausfeld (they are Husky) part number for the pump and motor assembly so I don't know which CH pressure regulator you need. They are easy to find and easy to replace.

    All of your problems indicate the pressure switch is bad. I don't know which part number to recommend because Campbell Hausfeld (Husky) model numbers have six digits and there aren't any model numbers or part numbers I can find that start with WJ. You need to contact Campbell Hausfeld (1-800-543-6400) to see what part you have to order to fix your compressor.

    I have a ch 28 gal (wl611700aj) air compressor,it pumps up to 80 psi.wont pump up any further but does keep running.whats your thoughts?


    Here are a couple of things to check. While the compressor is running spray soapy water on all airlines, fittings, bottom of pressure switch, regulator and drain valve to make sure that they are not leaking. A small leak will prevent the unit from reaching cutout limit. Repair as needed. Next unplug compressor and remove cover to expose cylinder and piston. Move piston to top of cylinder and check for scratches or wear neer top of cylinder. If scratched, air is bypassing piston ring and will not reach cutout pressure. If cylinder looks good and no leaks then problem most likely is valve plate/ reed valves or head gasket. Problems within head will cause low pressure and air line to tank will be very hot. Bad reed valves will also cause air to blow out of intake when it reaches 75 to 80 psi. Parts are available at www.chpower.com or at www.toolpartsdirect.com. Good luck
