SOURCE: help! air compressor trouble.
ASSUMING YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE PRESSURE SWITCH. YOU SHOULD EITHER HAVE 2 WIRES OR 4 WIRES ON THE SWITCH. THE SWITCH IS TYPICALLY MARKED LINE-LINE-LOAD-LOAD. IF YOU CAN SEE THE INSIDE OF THE SWITCH YOU WILL SEE THE CONTACT POINTS. ONE CORD WIRE CONNECTS AND PASSES THRU ONE SET OF POINTS TO ONE WIRE OF THE MOTOR. THE OTHER CORD WIRE PASSES THRU THE OTHER SET OF POINTS AND CONNECTS TO OTHER MOTOR WIRE. YOU TYPICALLY WILL NOT HURT THE COMPRESSOR BY HAVING THIS WIRING INCORRECT - PROBABLY JUST POP THE BREAKER INSTANTLY. IF YOU CANT SEE THE PATH THRU THE POINTS YOU CAN OHM THRU THE POINTS AND GET A CONTINUITY BEEP ON A VOLTMETER. IF THATS NOT AN OPTION, JUST SWITCH THEM AROUND UNTIL IT RUNS. HOPE YOU BOUGHT THE SAME CUT-IN AND CUT-OUT PSI. GOOD LUCK AND WRITE BACK IF THIS DOESNT GET IT. JODY

IT SOUNDS LIKE THE PRESSURE SWITCH ISNT WORKING CORRECTLY. IT SHOULD CUT IT OFF AT DESIRED PRESSURE AND RESTART IT AT CUT IN PRESSURE. YOUR BOG DOWN PROBLEM ON RESTART IS PROBABLY DROPCORD TOO SMALL OR THE COMPRESSOR IS NOT UNLOADING WHEN IT SHUTS OFF WHICH IS ALSO CONTROLLED BY THE PRESSURE SWITCH. WHEN YOUR COMPRESSOR SHUTS DOWN YOU SHOULD HEAR A HISS FOR A FEW SECONDS. THE SWITCH IS DRAINING THE AIR FROM THE TOP OF THE PISTON SO IT DOESNT START UNDER A LOAD THE NEXT TIME. HOPE THIS HELPS.

does the pump even attempt to run? or does it just hum when you try to turn it on? If it just hums either the pump is locked up or the motor start switch or capacitor is faulty.

If the pump is putting out 40 lbs then it is working these things are loud there must be air leaking out some where are you sure that the petcok on the bottom of the tank is closed or the blow out valve is not leaking or mabey I would say the gauge but it dosn;t shut off If the pump is putting air in that tank it eigther compresses or it comes out run your hands all around the mechine when its running there must be a leak
