my husky H1506f will not shut it self off when max pressure is reached


what could cause this problem..

Hello Kevin. When your compressor pressure reaches the cut out level, and the compressor doesn't stop, that means that electricity is still flowing to your electric motor, and it keeps running.

The compressor will then keep running until the pressure relief valve opens, and that should bleed the pressure in system down below a danger level even though, then, your compressor will keep running until something fails.

If the compressor won't shut off at the cut out pressure, it's 99% sure that your cut out pressure points in the switch are staying closed allowing power to flow to the compressor motor, and the simplest thing to do is to replace the pressure switch.

Cheers,

Bill

Compressor wont shut off
by: Howard

Most likely your contacts are stuck, these contacts are not real good with high voltage.Disconnect the power and manually pull the contacts apart if they go right back together then your air adjustment need to be readjusted, if they stay apart check the contacts for burned spots. You can sand them to clean them up but this will happen again over time. Bigger compressors use magnetic starters which use low voltage to the regulator and the Magnetic starter controls the high voltage. Howard

Husky H1506FWH Type 1 compressor, pressure switch adjustable?

by Steve
(Vegas Baby)

I have a Husky H1506FWH Type 1 compressor. It seems to work as it should, turns on, builds pressure, shuts off, cuts back in when pressure drops.

However, it is only building pressure to 75PSI before it cuts out II can see the pressure switch work. There is a 10mm bolt on the end of the switch, is that for pressure adjustment, is there another way to adjust pressure? Or do I need a new switch?

If this is a new problem Steve, that would suggest to me that the switch is failing.

Yes, there are adjustment nuts on some models of pressure switch, but I cannot find a photo of yours, so I don't know for sure.

What to do? Turn the bolt one turn, start the compressor and see what's what.

Or, spend the $25 or so to get a new one, and press on.

Cheers,

Bill

Sorry Steve. The system, unfortunately, doesn't allow photos in subsequent comments. Do start a new thread with the content from the old, and add up to four photos.
