20 gal oils compressor cuts off after running 7 to 8 min.


It will start back up 5 min later and run awhile longer until finally reaching 150 psi. Sometimes it will turn on at 125 psi and other times it won't come back on at all until I unplug it and plug it back in. Took it a part and checked all wire connections. Ok.

A bit of info on the machine might be helpful, too, if the checks Bill suggested don't lead to a fix.

A model number or the HP rating of the motor and if it's direct or belt drive.
