ABAC ABV2051-50-2.5 BD leaks

ABAC 2.5HP 50Litre Model number ABV2051-50-2.5 BD

The compressor starts and reaches a pressure of 110PSI motor stops and an air leak coming from base of pressure switch continues until it reaches 80PSI and motor starts again.

My understanding of compressors is that they are supposed to reach a set maximum pressure and stop with no leaks, and only restart when the user has used sufficient air in tank (spray painting etc) for it restart again.
This is on and off all the time and is wasting alot of energy doing nothing.
Can you help!

Sure. See the troubleshooting section about leaking pressure switches and tank check valves. I suspect the answer is there.

If not, post a comment here please.
