Air compressor wont stop running

The air compressor will run and when it has too much pressure it wont stop. The prv will then open and the air will come out through there but the compressor still keeps on running.

Air compressor will not stop running

Hey Francisco, have a look at the page under troubleshooting about why air compressors run on and on and don't stop. Lots of info there for you.

I can say that typically your compressor scenario is caused by a failing pressure switch that doesn't trip off when the tank pressure reaches the normal cut out pressure.

Not knowing the make and model of your air compressor makes it very difficult to offer specific advice. Sorry.
