The pressure control switch which the compressor usually pumps into and is mounted on the tank, contains a backflow check valve, the pressure regulator switch, and a compressor pressure release valve. It's probably available only as a complete unit. The pressure switch itself is usually a microswitch that can be obtained locally at a hardware or appliance parts house. Make sure that the pressure switch adjustment hasn't been set higher than the compressor can reach. If you remove the cover, you can watch for mechanical movement at the switch when it is supposed to shut off. Don't poke at anything in there with metal tools--220 volts will give you a lethal shock!

STOP! Your pressure switch is doing what it is supposed to, but the tank check valve is leaking. This valve is usually at the tank where the line from the compressor head enters the tank. The small tube line from the pressure switch probably also goes to this valve. You'll need to clean or replace it.

Read the owners manual,look at the motor label
20Amp is usually for 2HP and may work for your 3.2
Look at full load rating on motor. You won't need a
breaker that high.
You will need 12 ga wire and 20 amp breaker min.
two wire 240 volt circuit.
It should be wired for the higher voltage,if not look at the
inside of the small motor cover and move the terminals
to the two pole rating. Expensive to run at 115volt
