Engine shuts off instead of idling down when compressor is full

Published Categorized as Uncategorized 8 Comments on Engine shuts off instead of idling down when compressor is full

The engine runs great until compressor gets full then the engine quits, says Paul Brown of Tupelo MS USA.

What make and model? Hard to offer specifics without knowing that, says Doug of s.d.ca.

Does it shut down as if turned off, or does it lug down and die?

Does the throttle move to idle or stay at full?

What is the normal cut-off pressure, and what pressure does it get to?

Is this a new problem since you’ve owned it, or was it someone else’s?

Unfortunately, Paul didn’t come back with any further information about his compressor, so his original question stalled. But then, others picked up on the same issue, and added questions and comments below.
