(From the photo it looks like the drive belt is missing. ) Compressors are supposed to shut off when the desired pressure is reached. Does it start up again when you've used up some of the air?

It sounds like you need to replace the run capacitor , if yours is weak or defective the motor will overheat. Check "Drillspot" for a replacement. Another major cause of overheating is due to a dirty air filter , you should check it first.

Compressor UP6 25 125, runs all the time but is only under load for a short time, should it shut down between loads?


This unit will shut down if unloaded for a set period of time. Usually 5 to 10 minutes. This time could be longer if some one has changed it from the factory setting. There is a timer in the control box that starts counting down when the unit unloads. If it stays unloaded long enough for the timer to count down the unit will stop until the air pressure drops to the low set point on the pressure switch. It will then start up. If the unit loads before the counter counts down the timer starts from the beginning when it unloads again. This cycle continues until you manually shut it down or you stop using air long enough for the timer to reach Zero and shut down.

Shut off before it reaches 150 psi turned up the regulator up but it stops about 60 psi should go to 150 psi


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

I have an Ingersoll Rand T30 10 HP compressor that runs OK and will bulid up 150 psi without any problems. But when the pressure drops enough to kick the pressure switch, the motor won't start. just tries...


When the compressor comes up to pressure and kicks off, you should normally hear a gasp of air escaping. That gasp is the release of pressure from the compressor itself - not the tank, and it is supposed to get released so that the compressor can restart without being preloaded with compressed air. My guess is that the gasp is not happening. It is probably some debris or a gummy mechanism. The mechanism is supposed to be triggered by the same mechanism that shuts off the motor.

HUSKY 26 Gallon Shuts Down After <75PSI!?


Possibly the pressure switch needs to be adjusted to reach a higher pressure. Trace the power cord into a box that also is piped into the pressure line from the compressor. If the pressure works itself back down again, use thread-locker fluid on the adjustment screw to hold it's setting.
