Any idea of HP rating? It doesn't take much compressor to trip a regular 15A breaker.

If it is a portable unit, bring it close to an outlet that is close to your circuit breaker box and use no extensions or the shortest thickest extension that you have. If the problem is resolved, you need a higher amperage extension or a hard wired cord that is big enough.

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.
