Starts ups, shuts off - hit reset to start again?

Kobalt model # 37296 26 gal upright


Starts ups, shuts off, then have to wait a few seconds, hit reset, go through this procedure numerous times to get to 100 psi.

After using motor will not restart to build back up. Help?

Joe, while the pressure reading may be in digital form, I do not believe that the pressure switch is digital, though I have been wrong before! :-)

Regardless, your Kobalt air compressor symptoms suggest that you have a problem with the pressure switch, and that would be what I would target first.

If you can -briefly- bypass the switch and get power to the compressor motor, if it starts and runs well, then it is almost surely the pressure switch that is pooched.

If that is not it, please post a comment here.

Cheers,

Bill
