My air compressor will not shut off
by James P
My air compressor will not shut off even when I flip the shut-off manually. The only way that I can get it to shut-off is to actually unplug it.
I'm thinking that the problem is the pressure switch. Is it the problem?
my air compressor won't shut off just keeps running
my air compressor keeps running and won't shut off can you tell me next steps to try or maybe I could post some pictures to show you don't know a lot about compressors but I am I do it myself, guy thanks Chris
Chris, compressor make, model #, what's the pressure in the tank when the compressor keeps running, more info is needed, as a comment here, to help you resolve this compressor issue.
Know that if the problem relates to a specific compressor make and there is a forum for that make on this website, then this posting will be moved to there.

Air compressor wouldn't cut off
by ivan raphael
My air compressor wouldnt cut off even after reach max safety relief valve pressure of 30 bar, instead the air pop out from the safety relief valve.
The SRV (also known as PRV) just been calibrate twice and same thing happen. Can you help me on the problem?
A bit hard to be specific Ivan, as you don't indicate the make or model of air compressor.
If the air compressor does not shut off at the normal cut out pressure, then typically it indicates that the compressor pressure switch has failed, and instead of cutting power to the compressor motor, allows the motor to continue running, and building pressure, until the PRV lets go.
This is very unsafe. It were my compressor, I would not use it again until I got the pressure switch replaced.
