Kobalt 22 Gallon 1.3HP Compressor will not stay running
Kobalt Air Compressor Model 215914
I have a Kobalt 22 gal 1.3HP compressor with the digital readout screen that was purchased about 3 years ago.
Recently when the compressor is turned on it will start for about a half second and then stop. It then sits for about 5 seconds and then starts again for about a half second - it will do this endlessly as long as I have it turned on.
Also the same time this "cycling issue" started I noticed the regulator setting would not give a readout higher than 30PSI (compressor is rated and previously went as high as 155PSI)- regulator and tank pressure both show 30PSI.
My compressor has always been plugged directly into the same dedicated outlet (15A with no other draws on that circuit).
Any thoughts as to what is causing problem and how to remedy?
I have a large 80 gal 2 stage IR, but I really would like to get the Kobalt working again as it was nice and portable for outdoor work on our farm with decent CFM flow.
