Won't stop running after building pressure. Also is slow building pressure


Hi I have a husky h1820f 20gal tank 150PSI. It takes a long time to fill to 140-150 psi and when it reaches that pressure after about 20-30 minutes it wont shut off.

If I manually shut it off then turn it back on it stays off till it reaches cut on pressure.

Thing is, it's not. (building enough pressure)

Cut-off is supposed to be 155. so you need to find the pump/check valve problem.

husky h1820f not shutting off
by: Bill

That your Husky won't shut off is either caused by the pressure in the tank never reaching cut off due to the second issue you refer to, or the pressure switch may have a problem.

Both issues are covered in the troubleshooting pages on this site.
