90221 reset pops after 10 seconds

Central Pneumatic model 90221 keeps popping the reset after 10 seconds.


I wait for 20 second and reset it and it works for another 10 seconds.

I continue this until it fills the tank and shuts down. when the air volume pressure reduces it comes on by itself

reset pops after 10 secs.
by: Anonymous

Must be a common problem. Considering where the product was made I think it is a common weak part. I bypassed (shorted the 2 wires) to the reset switch and the compressor functions fine. I think the reset switch is the problem because nothing electrical gets hot. My problem is that I don't know how to find another properly rated reset switch.

Reset pops continuously

My compressor does the same thing. It will run for about 10 to 20 sec then the reset button pops. I can do this until it builds pressure then when it restarts. It will pop the reset again in about 10 to 20 sec.The motor doesn't even get warm. Any ideas?

When you say "when the air volume pressure reduces it comes on by itself" do you mean that it restarts OK, and runs back up to cut out without popping the reset.

As well, can you tell me how long the extension cord is you are using, and, how long that this has been happening?
