Husky 220 2 cylinder compressor...
(Santa Maria, Ca)
I noticed that my compressor was taking a while to build pressure. I unpluged it and pulled the air filters off. The filter on the right side looked pretty clean. The left side filter was reasonably clean but it appeared that the head had been getting hot. (The filter was brittle). I plugged it back in and noticed that the cylinder on the rt side was pulling air in like it should. But on the left, it appears to blow out a little instead of sucking in... Obviously there is some short of problem on the left side, but hate to blow it apart without having an idea of what the problem could be. The compressor builds up to 120 lbs, it just takes a little while to get there...
From the sound of it, you have a failing intake valve, and yes, to repair that, you will need to access it by pulling the pump head apart.
husky - at 110 will not shut off
rated for100 psi at 110 will not shut off. I am afraid of it blowing up. Is the regulater bad or should I let it run a little longer?
Hi there. Have a look at the page on this site about pressure switches. I think, based on what you have posted, that yours is pooched!

Husky Air Scout 1.5 air compressor know etc.
1.5 gal Husky Air Scout air compressor. Used very little. Air goes into tank but won't come out of the hose. The knob that sets the selected psi won't screw on nor off. Are they are related? Can I seat the knob some way? Or remove and replace?? Also when is the safety valve used?
Hi Patti. See the troubleshooting section for links to the pages about why air doesn't come out of the air hose, see the regulator pages about how the regulator works (or in your case apparently doesn't) and the PRV page for information about what the pressure relief valve is for and how to test it.
