Air compressor pressure switch

I have a broken plastic shroud and handle. And the other issue is the pressure switch which seems to no longer be available.


Plastic Shroud part number I found looks different PN E100349
The pressure switch has no PN but the description is:
Pressure Switch, 1/8" NPT

Hi there...

The shroud performs two functions on your compressor. One is cosmetic - to make the little sucker look better. The other is to help prevent you or other users from touching the pump area while the compressor is running. That pump head and any metal in the immediate vicinity gets hot!

If you promise not to touch the compressor while you are using it, why have the shroud at all? Your pump will cool faster without it, as far as I'm concerned.

As to the handle, if they are not making the compressor any more, then have a look at the new compressors at the compressor store and see if any of those handles come close. I'll bet they will. The problem will be in getting any of the stores to sell you a handle. Try getting a used compressor similar to any with a handle that will fit off of one of the buy/sell sites. Take other parts from a used compressor as well. For instance...

the pressure switch. I cannot see yours in the photo you provided (thanks for that) but I suspect it is similar to the one I uploaded? You can use almost any brand of pressure switch for air compressors, as long as the plumbing and the unloader valve interface connects. The lever, pin and unloader valve are shown in the pressure switch photo.

Cheers,

Bill

Thanks for the reply Bill. I agree with you The shroud is not that important usually, only this compressor has the Fuse monted to the inside of it, and all 115V wires exposed to the gaping hole in the top. I bought a great new Craftsman 3 Gallon 1hp 3.7cfs compressor and will use that one in the Garage. This one was going to the Bench in the shop for possible a brad nailer in the future. I might even be able to live with the thing the way it is but If I could fix it right it would be nice. Also the pressure switch looks more like a little canister with a hole. If you were to pile up 10 or twelve pennies you would see the size of it. I am expecting that there is just a 1/8" hole with a diaphram that presses a switch at 100LBS that is failing. Just thought I would shout out to everyone to see if there were parts available. Thanks again

I didn't realize that you had the mini-pressure switch on that one. Sorry. Good luck.
