Husky only builds up to 60 psi

turns on builds up to 50 psi keeps running but will not go past 50psi. I checked the bottom drain and it was shut. I checked the tiny hole at the top of the check valve leading into the tank after shutting it off and no air loss noted. Any ideas? oh yes it is a 20 gal oiless portable upright purchased around last of 2013/14
