On my 104B250U-22 the cut-in is 70psi and cut-out is 100psi, that's what's on the label on the side of the tank. Mine started cutting out around 80psi and I found that the contact's on the pressure switch were wore out. I replaced it with a 95psi/125psi pressure switch and adjusted it back to around 75psi/105psi. Hope this helps.

Mike, I wasn't able to find any specs on this compressor. Do you know what the normal cut out pressure is?

You don't want to increase the cut out pressure if the compressor normal cut out is 80 PSI.

However, that seems to be a pretty low cut out, so the issue may be that the pressure switch is failing, and if that's the case, adjusting it won't accomplish much.

Do you - or anyone - know the normal cut out pressure? Please add a comment here with that info.
