In that case, it may be there's a problem with the pressure switch, as in on the way to failing.

But, assuming it's not failing, then some are adjustable - Depends on the the model.

If yours is adjustable, see http://www.about-air-compressors.com/pressure-switch.html for info.

If you can't adjust it, you'll need to replace it.

Have fun.

If it used to fill to 150 PSI
by: Bill

Hi Bill.... if the compressor used to fill to 150 PSI, and now doesn't, and the compressor cuts out at 130 regularly, it could be just that the pressure switch is going.

On the other hand, 130 PSI is lots of pressure for most applications.

If you must have the 150 PSI that the compressor used to generate, then it may be time to change the pressure switch if the one on the compressor now is not adjustable.

the tank is rated at 150 and the overpressure valve is 165. the compressor cuts off at 130, it used to fill all the way up to 150 when it was new.

Don't do this unless you are sure the tank and compressor pump are built for it.

It's covered on the pressure switch page.

Real question is, why do you need / want to do this?
