That is the safety relief valve which means it has gone bad or you need to turn back the high pressure setting about 5 t0 10 psi. When this happens again there should be a small pin in the middle of it that has a metal ring through it. When it goes off push on that pin and if the air coming out stops or shuts off then you need to turn back the psi if not the valve needs replaced.

I would talk to senco, they can probably provide you with a parts diagram or a tech service rep to guide you through the problem. I agree that the problem is probably that valve, but I couldnt tell you what its called.

My air compressor runs good but wont build pressure


If you have no leaks then the valve that discharges from the compressor cylinder(s) is hanging open. It should shut on the back stroke then open when the compressor completes a compression stroke. They are usuall spring loaded, somtimes not. If the compressior has something that looks like a cylinder head the valvle should be located under it.

Sounds like the cutoff valve is failing to cut power off to the compressor drive motor, while it activates the unloader.--- I'd consider looking closely at the contacts, or replacing the cutoff.

when it reaches 120 psi it will cut out usually will cut back in at around 70- 80 psi if it struggles to restart at cut in pressure it may not be bleeding the head pressure om your compressor . this is done by the pressure switch which when shuts off releases a small squirt of air under it . to solve this problem you may need new switch . there is also the non return valve to check

I have worked on many makita compressors and have run-across this problem on a few of them. Your compressor has a check valve that is supposed to hold tank pressure after the switch reaches set pressure. There is an unloader valve built into the pressure switch that releases the pressure in the discharge hose after the unit shuts off. The unloader allows the compressor to restart with-out any pressure in the discharge line. If the brass check valve is leaking pressure back into the system, air will leak out of the unloader valve. Follow the discharge line to the tank and you will see the brass check valve. To test valve for fault, run the compressor till it builds around 80 psi and unplug the unit from the wall outlet. Remove the 1/4" hose connector from the check valve and check for air leaking out of the valve. If it is leaking you can order form www.toolpartsdirect.com. or call the makita 1-800 number. The price is about the same. Good Luck on your repair.
