Question about Campbell Hausfeld 5 Peak / 1.7 Running HP, 17 Gallon Husky Air Compressor

Open Question

I have a Husky oil less air compressor. 1.7HP 26 Gal. I don't use it regularly. I turn it on and it gets up to around 40-50psi and then starts to sound like the motor is slowing, also a slight burning smell and then finally it blows the breaker. What could be causing this and how can I test whatever faulty component is acting up? Thanks in advance! Thorin

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have a Husky Pro 30 gal a/c. How do I adjust

The adjustment for "Cut-In" and "Cut Out" can be found under the pressure switch cover, if available. Some switches are sealed to prevent tampering that might compromise safety.
If you remove the cover you will see the four electrical connections and one or two screws with springs under them. Most times if the adjustments are accessible you will find a set of instructions under the switch cover. One screw will adjust both the "Cut-In/Cut-Out" pressure and one to adjust the "Cut-Out" pressure only.

However you need to remember some important issues regarding these adjustments. The first is that the "Cut-In/Cut-Out" pressure is set at the factory and is set there for a reason. The only reason to change these is because over time the adjustments can change or you are installing a new switch. The other thing to remember is that the safety relief valve is set just above the "Cut-Out" psi. So any meaningful increase will only trigger the safety valve.

If you need to readjust your compressor back to factory settings make sure you do it with small adjustments. 1/4 to 1/2 turn of the screws. Run the compressor and check both the "Cut-In" and "Cut Out" psi setting before making another adjustment.

Hope this helps, good luck and please be careful.
