Hello,

Ypur pressure switch ( the grey box), is not shutting the motor off. It is is either adjusted higher( too much pressure), or stuck. Unplug it and remove the cover, Then make sure the gold colored lever moves. This is what shuts the power to the motor off. You can plug it in and watch to see if the lever moves before the pop off blows. It depands on the tank rating as to what pressure yours should be set to. Around 125 psi is recomended.

Hope this helps.

I have a model FP209501 Air Compressor 2 Gallon,


2 gallons is small to begin with u need to buy an in line pressure adjuster/regulator their a few bucks and can be attached to the paint gun or line and will keep the pressure at ur adjustment the regulator on the tank sets the tank pressure at 50 so when u us it will let it drop down to about 45 than start up to build the pressure up to 50 than shuts off than repeats it self the inline keeps pressure steady even if tanks are at 200 psi

Husky Wl6510 air compressor, motor shuts off


One other possibility is that the check valve between the compressor and the tank is letting air flow back against the compressor. Is it having trouble restarting when the pressure lowers to the cut-in pressure? If it doesn't want to start up again, sounding like it's starting against pressure, suspect that valve.

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.

I have a husky compressor, model number y6010-wk. it builds pressure slow, and shuts down right away.


Problem: My compressor is not producing the air that it once did. It takes twice as long to pump up.
Solution:
1)Turn off your compressor or disconnect the power.
2)Remove the connector tube that sends air to the tank.
3)Remove the head bolts on top of the pump.
4)Remove the head off of your pump.
5)Remove the valve plate off of your pump. It may be a one piece or a 2 piece design.
6)Inspect the valve plate for broken reed valves or broken gaskets above or below the valve plate.
