How my Kobalt compressor regulates the on and off

I want to find out how the Kobalt air compressor regulates the on and off.


I have a Kobalt air compressor model#033041 and it wont cut off at the pressure it needs to.

I removed the top cover and there is no pressure switch.

Kobalt on and off

Hey Bill. I'd be very surprised if your Kobalt air compressor did not have a pressure switch.

The thing is, the smaller air compressors have a pressure switch that is inserted into the tank rather than being on the outside of the compressor.

I could not find any information on the model number you posted - model#033041 - so I cannot tell you what type of switch yours has, but since you cannot find it, I suspect it's of the insertion type.

The info about different pressure switches is found on that page on this site.
