Kellogg 355l was shutting off and on

my Kellogg 355l was shutting off and on till it finally hit the target pressure.


I installed a new pressure switch and it did the very same thing. Thought it was faulty and returned it and got another one still no change.

What else could be causing this?

Sounds like thermal overload.

See the trouble shooting pages for "checking capacitors" which can cause this.

Another somewhat unlikely cause might be be your check valve, but you don't mention losing air from the tank.
