After compressor turns off it leaks air from pressure switch

Sounds like you have a tank check valve leaking. It is located in top of the tank. The copper discharge line from the compressor goes into the check valve. Make sure there is no air pressure in the tank. Then Remove the large copper discharge line. Also remove the small copper line from the side of the check valve. Once the lines are removed you can remove the check valve. Most of the time the check valve needs replacing. Sometimes they have large pieces of trash holding them open.

Ingersoll-Rand Air Compressor P185WJD why would the pop off valve on the air separator keep popping off

its because the compressor is not unloading { going above 120psi} you need to check the air signal going to the unloader valve located on top of the screw, it should start putting out air at about 90psi to close the unloader. another thing is if you are getting oil in the air coming out of the front ball valve the seperator element is bad thats the filter inside the tank the pop off valave is mounted. you can check the air signal by fethering ball valve to run the machine at 90 psi the diconnect small air line on unloade to check for air signal coming from regulater
