Compressor runs until 60 psi and stops.

by Donald Paver

I start my compressor and can set the pressor for any setting.


The compressor builds pressure until it reaches 60 psi and will not restart on its own.

I have to turn the switch off and let it set for 5-10 min,then the unit will restart.

Immaterial.

"The compressor builds pressure until it reaches 60 psi and will not restart on its own."

...and what? the motor stops/trips?

"I have to turn the switch off and let it set for 5-10 min,then the unit will restart. "

So it's overloading...and you're not using an extension cord (it's electric, right?)

Maybe a bad run cap.
