over heating Campbell Hausfeld air compressor
by Fred Parisek
When running my compressor for an extended period of time. Say shooting paint or using air tools. After a period of time of running the compressor shuts down. I have to wait for about 30 min before it allows me to restart it. Do I need to replace something inside the motor and or a regulator?
What you need to do is check and see if your air compressor is rated for continuous duty cycle. If not, then you are likely running to the point of overheating and it needs to cool down.
With the absence of info on model, HP, tank size etc. to corroborate this, my gut feel is that your air compressor is too small for the work you want it to do.
Campbell Hausfeld compressor pumps air but not to tank
I have a Campbell 26 gal compressor and it has the quick blow outlet, when running the quick outlet has air but none to the tank .
I'm having a bit of a problem understanding what you mean by a quick blow outlet?
Are you saying that you have air blowing out of the compressor all the time when it's running?

complaint about Campbell Hausfeld pressure switch
by Larry Nopen
I have a 3 hp, 60 gal. compressor. It is 4 and a half years old, it has went threw at least 1 pressure switch 1 year, at the cost of 49.00 a pop.
called the 800 help line, changed the check valve, same problem.
I can click the pressure switch back and forth a few times and it will try to start.
All electrical wires are tight. My 5hp 80 gal never had this problem, and there was no phony on / off switch on it. Do you have the part # for that switch. Thanks Larry Nopen
Well Larry, as I have often said, in the drive to offer DIY compressor users ever lower cost compressors, somethings go to give, and that's the quality.
I don't have the model number of your Central Pneumatic air compressor, so I cannot try to find the specs on your pressure switch.
Click the link in the nav bar about compressors and parts here, and have a look at the selection of pressure switches.
You don't need an OEM switch for your compressor, just one that fits, has about the same pressure range, similar cut in and cut out, has the same voltage range and the same unloader connection.
