xsc 185 screw compressor has low air

I have a xsc 185 screw compressor.


It was working ok but now it just wants to build 85 lbs working pressure and no more with the valve open or closed.

On a small load the blue button works ok.

The regulator works up and down but only to 85 lbs. I could easily build 125 lbs if I wanted

Oil level is good.

I don't understand what you mean by "The regulator works up and down but only to 85 lbs. I could easily build 125 lbs if I wanted "


Anyway, either your pressure sensor has gone bad or your setpoints changed somehow, assuming there's not a giant leak somewhere.
