Your unloader valve isn't unloading. This valve is supposed to stop the compressor at (likely) around 125#. If it's one that you can service, try adjusting it back down to 125# - if not serviceable, it'll have to be replaced. Make sure that your pressure line between the valve/tank/governor is intact and not kinked, too.
I'd like to know how this one turns out, please!

Why does the safety valve go off before the pressure switch on a porter cable 80 gal air compressor


The maximum pressure on most small compressors is 10 bar or 1000kpa which is about 145 psi in the old language most safety valves are set to 150 psi. I suggest you get some one to reduce the pressure switch setting. Running a compressor at elevated pressures does not give you any more air. A reasonable pressure for small compressors is 120 psi

Try to use a higher amperage extension cord.
This unit is rated for 15 amps. It should be able to run on a 20 amp circuit unless there is voltage drop due to small wiring. Try an air conditioner extension and let us know the result.

What is the torque for head bolts on my ingersoll rand ss3 compressor?


I can't say from their manual, but I've never rebuilt a compressor (and I check every one with the mfg) for which the head bolt torque isn't in the range of 25 ft. lbs. to 40 ft lbs. If you can't find it, torque to 30 or 35 and you've got it knocked.

John Deere will replace the cap for free; they acknowledge the vendor who supplied Briggs & Stratton gas caps provided faulty caps. Call 1-888-228-3068 then 1 (English), 2, 1 and a technician will ask you for model number and Serial Number (which they need to replace the cap). Don't drill a hole in your cap: debris will find a way into the gas tank and end up possibly fouling the engine. Bob from NJ

Blows the relief valve


If you have the manual, check the compressor and normal pressure settings and ratings - 145 psi sounds high and unless you are using huge air tools. You may not need that kind of pressure. It sounds like the relief valve and motor overload are both doing their jobs to protect the system.
