Mastercraft compressor starting problems
by: Bill

What is the pressure in the tank now, Deborah?

An air compressor will not restart on it's own until the pressure in the tank falls to the pressure switch cut in pressure setting, so if the tank pressure is above that, your air compressor will not start.

I suspect the petcock you refer to is the drain valve on the bottom of the tank.

Mastercraft Air compressor 6 gal will not restart
by: Deborah

Just received a new Mastercraft 6 gal air compressor. Turned on according to instructions but it shut off after a couple minutes and now will not restart. The gauge showed 100psi when it shut off. Also, what is a petcock?

Mastercraft Air Compressor start up
by: Bill

- tank empty?
- plugged directly into a wall socket, no extension?
- age of compressor?
- model number?
- how often used?

See the troubleshooting page for links to info about air compressors that won't start.
