Pressure switch has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Part runs around $25. Go online and put in model number, pressure switch. You will find companies that sell replacement parts. I had to replace mind, it did the same thing.

On my porter cable 6 gallon air comnpressor need to know where the red black and yellow wires get plugged into


there always three wires in the power cord, the green/yellow stripe wire is for ground connection,which doesn't needed to modify.
One of the other two wire is directly connected to the power plug , and the other connects to the contact point at the pressure switch and returns back to the power plug.
if this pressure switch is not working, you have to install another kind of switch of on and off the compressor.

A porter cable 135 psi 60 gallon upright


If the motor doesn't shut off at the desired pressure then your pressure switch is either set too high or is broken/stuck. The pressure leak at 150 psi is the safety valve doing its job opening when the pressure gets to an unsafe level in the tank.

I have a porter cable 6 gallon compressor. The motor used to cut out at 150 psi, but now it cuts out at 135. Is this a faulty tank pressure gauge misreading the pressure or a motor cutting out too early


it could be your air pressure adjustment knob, where your air line hooks up, which controls the psi to a lower or highist seting to adjust for different tools and uses.
