Makita MAC5200 reset button keeps tripping

I have a fairly new Makita MAC5200 3 hp air compressor, the reset button keeps tripping.


You can reset the reset button and it runs and fills normally to about 60-80 lbs, sometimes 100 and then stops due to reset button going tripping off, once in awhile the compressor will fill all way to 140 and automatically shut off like it should, then I will bleed some air till it cycles on again, but more often than not it will trip the reset button at 60-80 lbs while filling then shut off. And then have to be reset manually to work again. Would this be the pressure switch?

You'll probably find you have a problem involving start/run capacitor(s)
