Question about Campbell Hausfeld 5 Peak / 1.7 Running HP, 17 Gallon Husky Air Compressor
The air regulator only regulates the flow of the air as to how much. their is a pressure switch that turns on and off the power to the compressor when it reaches it's set pressure.
follow the plug wire to a small box this should have the switch arm you flip to start it.
remove the cover with the unit un-plug.
there will be a spring with a nut on top tightening this nut or loosening it will adjust when the pump will cut off.
the best way is to test by adjusting one way and watching the pressure till it hits the desired rating you want.
if it keeps pumping un-plug the unit then back off the nut or tighten till you hear a click then plug the unit back in it should not run then.
drain the air and re try the unit it should cut off at the pressure then if so your fixed look for burnt contacts if their black and have little craters on the contacts then that hole switch should be replaced and you can buy them at the presetting you need.
hope this helps
