It sounds like the pressure switch is malfunctioning and should be replaced. I would recommend going to Dewaltservicenet.com and typing in your model number for a breakdown for this compressor and replacement parts.

I have a Central Pneumatic 38898 pancake compressor that will not shut off when the pressure reaches pre-set PSI. I have replaced the pressure switch but to no avail...HELP!!


There must be a blockage on the fitting where the pressure switch goes in that stops the air pressure from reaching the regulator. Try taking the switch off and turn the compressor on and see if air comes out the hole

Hello
Replace the pressure shut off switch.First drain the tank and shut off all power.Remove switch and inspect for any debri or water in the tube to the switch.
Also check the settings.max i think is 150psi.So it should fill to say 145 and shut off.

I have a portible air compressor, with two gauges on it and it takes a long time to reach its pressure, also once reached it does not shut down


Make sure the air intake filter is clean and make sure there is no leaks in the metal lines and hoses of the compressor by putting liquid soap around the fittings and looking for bubbles. If the compressor is used a lot you might have bad ring on the piston. Since it does not shut off when it reaches pressor the pressor switch might be adjusted right or if it does not adjust you have to replace the pressure switch.

Compressor will not turn off


Most single stage compressors come with a pressure switch set to shut off at 125 - 145 psi. These switches become less efficient over time and will Begin to fail but remain useful. A safety valve (brass plut with pull ring) is installed somewhere on your compressor set to open at aprox. 160psi. If the pressure switch shuts off before the safety valve activates you could probably continue to use the unit. If however you would like to have the unit shut off at 125psi replace the switch any switch that can be installed in the space allowed. The black tubing that you see is the unloader. When the unit reaches set pressure and shuts off, the small valve under the pressure switch will open and release the pressure in the tubing. This allowes the compressor to start with no back-pressure. For max. life of compressor make sure that there are no leaks in system and upplug when not in use.
Pressure switches are sold in pressure ranges from 45psi to 160psi. Some brands are better constructed than others. A squareD switch will give long life being used w/o extension cord. Good Luck
