How to adjust pressure setting of a Kobalt K7060HFV air compressor? I have a Kobalt K7060HFV air compressor. Works great, but the pressure is set at 80psi. How can I adjust the pressure up to 110psi?
You say the pressure is set at 80 PSI? Can you tell me where on your compressor is that pressure setting set? In other words, is it the pressure switch setting, or is it the outgoing air regulator setting?
To adjust the compressor system pressure requires re-setting the pressure switch, and I don’t recommend that.
If it’s adjusting the downstream pressure to your tool, that’s done with the air regulator.
If you aren’t sure, please add a comment and we’ll dig further into this.
I have a Kobalt 60 gal air compressor and motor doesn’t turn?
(owatonna mn. usa)
i just buy a kobalt 60 gal. i have power to the motor but doesn’t turn on any advice?
If you have power to the motor, then the pressure switch has tripped to on and power is flowing through the pressure switch to the motor. Is this correct?
Is the power supply to the compressor the right voltage? Often a 60 gallon tank compressor will be powered by a 5 HP motor or more, and if so, it needs a 220 VAC power supply.
If the power supply to the compressor motor is the right voltage, and the power is getting to the motor for sure, and nothing is happening as to the motor starting, then I’d look to testing the start capacitor next on the motor next. Please see the page linked from the troubleshooting page on this site about testing capacitors.
