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

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.

I have a husky brand air compressor with 7.5 h.p. compressors. when pressure builds to its maximum amount, compressor will not shut off it continues to run while pop off valve opens.


Hello,

Ypur pressure switch ( the grey box), is not shutting the motor off. It is is either adjusted higher( too much pressure), or stuck. Unplug it and remove the cover, Then make sure the gold colored lever moves. This is what shuts the power to the motor off. You can plug it in and watch to see if the lever moves before the pop off blows. It depands on the tank rating as to what pressure yours should be set to. Around 125 psi is recomended.

Hope this helps.

Keeps stalling out


It sounds like you will have to adjust the governor system to hold the throttle on the motor open more so it doesn't bog the motor down. There should be an adjustment screw at the carb to perform this.
Hope this helps

25 gallon air compressor wont shut off,changed air regulator


You have a valve plate problem . It could be a slipped "o" ring to a bad reed valve. There are rebuild kits for that purpose. The kits include a valve plate assembly. It covers all the bases. When you look at this area pay attention to the partitions of the head gasket/"o"ring. You may avoid the cost of the kit.

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

Air compressor does not regulate pressure to set point.


Emglo airmate compressors are set from the factory to shut off at around 125psi. There is an adjustment (remove cover to pressure switch) that will controll the cut-off pressure but it is not recommended changing the factory setting. There is also a safety valve installed that will open at about 160psi. It is a small brass device with a pull ring. When things go wrong with the pressure switch (rectangular box with power cord coming out of one side) the safety will pop open. There is a pressure regulator with round knob on panel that will lower the pressure to the tool, however this regulator does not control the pressure switch. Let you compressor run untill it shuts off and verify pressure to be about 125, if it is then all as well. Good Luck

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

No air pressure past 60PSI on a 125PSI Campbell Hausfield WL61110


Your comperssor is oilless type and suffers from short cylinder / piston life. When the compressor no longer reaches cycle pressure the cylinder / piston should be replaced. These parts are available at www.chpower.com I believe that the part number is wl210300aj. Not expensive, enjoy.
