Campbell Hausfield Air Compressor
Campbell Hausfield Air Compressor won't shut off. I used to turn the the regulator adjustment knob as it reached 100psi and then it would shut down ( I think it is called a regulator adjustment knob), and the unit would turn off and turn back on as I used my tools. Now it just keeps running. it builds pressure fine, but no matter which way I turn the regulator knob, it just keeps running. I only allow it to get to 110 psi as it states it is 125 psi maximum.
the other thing I notice is that after it gets to say 110psi and i pull the plug, and release some air pressure (say down to 80psi), and then go to plug it in again, instead of running, it sounds like to motor is bound up and just huns and the lights in the garage on the same circuit dim as though the breaker is about to trip. I noticed that there seems to be a release valve that connects from the pressure switch to the tank, and if I manually push the switch it releases a little air and then if I plug it in, it starts right up again. Do I have two separate issues??
Any help is appreciated.
