Digital compressor won't shut off won't discharge air through outlet hose

Kobalt digital compressor will not shut off when tank is full.


release valve opens after reaching 155psi.

also will not allow air from the full tank to discharge through the supply hose.

any suggestions.

is there a reset code by holding down any of the digital buttons?

Do you have instructions on how to by-pass the digital portion and what item numbers I would need to purchase to replace

Can't be sure as I don't have the model to read up on it, but I suspect what you are seeing is a failed regulator and failed pressure switch, or more likely, a failed control component for both of these.

The "digital" portion of these air compressors add an element of complexity that shouldn't be there, IMHO.

I would add a manual regulator and a pressure switch (after ensuring that the existing one isn't working - though I suspect it may be ) and take all the "digital" out of the equation completely.

Just my .02 worth!
