Pieces of a compressor pressure switch
MY CAMPBELL HAUSFELD COMPRESSOR WAS STARTING VERY SLOWLY EACH TIME IT WENT TO START BACK UP,SOMETIMES IT WILL TRIP THE RESET ON THE MOTOR.I TOOK OFF THE TOP PART OF THE PRESSURE SWITCH(BIG MISTAKE I THINK !)NOW CAN YOU SHOW ME HOW TO PUT IT BACK TOGETHER?
Oh my, Carl. That is a mess. I don't rebuild them, and I sure hope that someone reading this can help and post instructions for you.
Your compressor symptoms suggest the following as typical problems with air compressor starting.
1)unloader valve not working,
2)poor power supply to the motor circuit
3)start capacitor failing
