Compressor Reaches 50psi and shuts off! HELLP!
I have a Husky 26 Gal Air Compressor Model # WL660900(AJ)
It only fills to 50psi and shuts off.
Presssure will hold if not used. No Leaks
If used, pressure will drop as normal but tank will not kick back on.
Have to wait several minutes to get it back on and then it will refill back to 50psi and cut off again.
I have replaced the Valve kit which included (Vavle Plate, Intake valve, Exhaust valve, Exhaust valve gasket, Head Gasket, and Cylinder Gasket.
That did not resolve or make a difference.
I then ordered and replaced the Pressure switch, which included the Switch leaver and Unloader valve.
This did not resolve or make a difference either.
Whats left? Or what could be causing this issue.
It used to fill to around 120 or more psi and auto kick back on once drops down to a certain level.
If you need any further info, please let me know.
Thanks for any Help you can provide me!
Al, under normal circumstances, it is the pressure switches role to either send power to the motor circuit, or cut that power off when the pressure in the system reaches the cut out pressure level.
You say the compressor is stopping at 50 PSI? Is the pressure switch tripping the compressor off, or is it the breaker that's popping off?
If it is the pressure switch that's tripping the compressor off at 50 PSI, then I have to think that either your new pressure switch is set up wrong with a too low cut off setting or it might be wired backwards.
Give me some feedback as a comment here, please.
Husky 70 G Compressor wants to stall
Hello, I have a Husky brand compressor that has very few hours on it.
Recently after hooking it up in a new house, it started giving me this issue.
After started and it builds pressure to about 20 psi, it begins to stall. I noticed inside the back of the Emerson moter (picture attached)there is an armiture that slides back and forth along the shaft causing or in result to the stalling motor.
The oil in the compressor is fine and it doesn't seem to be overheating either. It just seems to slow way down and slowly chuggs along/at the same time the armiture in the motor slides back and forth. I have looked everywhere on the web to include your site and have not found a similar issue anyone is having. Please help me. Thanks you.
I believe the armature you refer to, Brian, is the flywheel that toggles the motor from the start to the run windings.
It were my compressor, I would make sure that I was not using an extension cord, and I would also make sure I had clean power. See what else is pulling power from the same plug the compressor is plugged into, and shut those down. Any difference?
Won't restart at all
by RANDALL BRYAN
Husky 5 hp 22 gallon compressor. Working fine, I shut it off before it reached peak and it will not start or even hum. Only thing I tried so far is replacing the on/off switch because it felt spongy. NO idea what happened.
Hi Randall. Unplug it, and dump all the air from the tank. Plug it in. If it starts, consider the UNLOADER VALVE.
If it does not, is power getting to the motor past the PRESSURE SWITCH when the tank pressure is zero and you plug it back in? You need to use a multi-meter to check this. The pressure switch turns the power on and off to the motor as the tank pressure cycles, and if the pressure switch is pooched, and no power gets to the motor, then your compressor cannot start.

runs then stops will run again in a few minutes
(Battle Lake, MN)
Husky wl651004aj It will run for a minute or two then stops. I shut it off and let iset for a couple minutes and restart it an it runs for a minute or so and shuts down again. I can go thru this cycle all day. Any suggestions?
My first inclination is that it's the pressure switch that's bolloxed, but not enough info to be sure.
While it's running is there pressure buildup in the tank? While it's stopped, does this pressure stay in the tank or bleed off somehow?
If you want to provide more info, do so as a comment here so I can follow the thread.
