Where can I get a new pressure switch for my puma 6060 air compressor


Replace the pressure switch with generic switch available on ebay. You only need the port sizes and pressure cut in/out. If your switch cut out at 150psi or higher, you might consider replacing it with one that cuts out at 125psi to increase the life of the compressor (assuming that you can get by with pressure range of 90 - 125). Good luck

I have a cap2060 Bostitch pancake. When pressure builds to 125psi the pressure switch blows open and starts to release air. I replaced the switch and the same thing is happening. Is there a way to adjust...


A little suggestion as most compressors are build up similar in the same way if your Pressure relief valve (unloader valve) will start continues blow off until all pressure is lost , it has nothing to do with the pressostat switch in most case there is a problem with the checkvalve on the tank sometimes there are metal little oxidized parts coming out from the cilinder like the pressure hose connections Oxidized couplings or membrane you can open and inspect the spring and rubber valve iside the checkvalve clean it from corrosion and metal parts.

Load and unload issues


  • The 10 deg pressure band you are asking for is too narrow for the pressure switch. You are going to have to choose to have it kick off at a higher pressure or turn on at a lower pressure.
  • You could install a more precise pressure switch.
  • What are you doing that you set a 10 deg pressure band ?

Dewalt compressor builds pressure then pops off at max, never stops running


would best guess that the pressure switch is stuck shut. if the pressure is going over 125psi, "and check with a good gauge" then the switch needs to be replaced.

Husky 17gal 5hp compressor will not cut off when it builds up pressure. Pressure valve will pop open and then I cut it off buy hand


bad pressure switch or it is wired incorrectly replace switch and check the wiring or could be out of adjustment you compressor is made for max 125psi should be a screw to adjust on the pressure switch near where the wires are connected back out counter clockwise to lower and see if that turns it off

Gas air compressor shuts down


IS IT BUILDING TO THE UNLOAD PRESSURE AND THEN STALLING OR JUST SHUTTING DOWN ANYTIME. IS THE UNIT SITTING AT AN ANGLE?

DOES IT WORK FINE WITH THE LOW OIL SWITCH UNPLUGGED? UNPLUG SWITCH AND LEAVE IT UNPLUGGED FOREVER.THEY'RE ALL P.O.S.
