Question about Craftsman 20 gal Horizontal Compressor
The operation of that compressor is that the pressure switch will open when it reaches its set pressure, usually about 125 psi. when the switch opens and the motor comes to a stop the little valve on the side of the switch is meant to unload the pump head of pressure for the next start up. the pressure in the head and the tube leading to the tank is what is relieved, to prevent tank pressure leaking back there is a check valve where the discharge line enters the tank. what it sounds like is that check valve is not closing when the pump stops, and should be replaced.
