My puma 2 gallon compressor will run but will not build pressure over 60 pounds. And it will not cut off.

Puma compressor won't build
by: Bill

Pop on over to the troubleshooting page mate, and have a look at the links to the pages about why air compressors run but don't build pressure.

There are a number of reasons why an air compressor will build pressure to a certain level and then stop building pressure even though the compressors runs and runs.

I don't know if the image I uploaded of the Puma air compressor is yours or not, since you don't indicate what model.

I suspect that you've got a pump gasket issue. At least that's one place to start.
