Turn on a compressor?

How air compressors work is one of the pages on this site, Anna. Please use a search box to find the page and have a read, so you understand how all the parts work together.

Or, buy my eBook The Home Compressor from this site,which explains how it all works together in great detail.

Right now, however, find your compressor tank gauge and tell me the pressure it shows on that gauge.

If there is pressure above what is known as the cut out pressure setting, your air compressor will not start again until air is used and the tank pressure drops below the cut in pressure setting of the pressure switch.
