Pressure switch doesn't kick off.
The pressure switch does not kick off when the compressor has reached its maximum pressure. The contacts weld together. The switch was burnt up and was replaced as does the same thing.
Scott, it's odd that you had the same problem with two pressure switches. Really odd.
You don't indicate your compressor voltage, but I assume you got the pressure switch that suited the voltage?
That being the case, I suspect a faulty re-wiring. Is this possible?
my compressor does not have a pressure switch and it keeps working and it does not cut out is there any danger...
my compressor does not have a pressure switch and it keeps working and it does not cut out is there any danger to that what shuould I do
should i keep working it that way
Ely, if it were me, I would not use an air compressor that did not have a working pressure switch.
The pressure switch is the first level of air compressor safety, preventing over-pressurization of the compressor tank and plumbing.
The second level is the PRV.
If the PRV should fail, and your pressure switch is not working or absent, it could have catastrophic results.
Let me be clear. If the compressor runs without a pressure switch, and the PRV fails, and the demand for air is not greater than that which the air compressor can put out, you or a fellow staff member could be hurt by debris if a pipe or the tank lets go.
