Hello Marcell.

From the sounds of it, I think you either have a pressure switch issue or your pump is unable to fill the tank to the pressure level needed to cut out the power from the pressure switch.

We all need a bit more information to better diagnose your Porter Cable compressor problem.

Please tell me what pressure the tank gets to and stops, or if the pressure builds until the PRV cracks open?


Do you have your own question about a 150 PSI Porter Cable compressor that doesn’t stop? Please add your comment here along with photos to help others help you with your compressor and equipment problem!
