I have a Husky 5.5hp 26 gal oil less compressor that will not stay on?

by ken
(sacto.)

As soon as i turn it on it shuts off or freezes up so i turn it off and back on and it shuts off in a span of 2 sec. husky 5.5hp 26 gal oil less

Unplug it. Drain the tank to zero PSI. Close the tank drain. Power it back up. Tell us as a comment what happens, please?

When it shuts off, is the pressure switch tripping?

As you test, put your ear down near the switch or watch the toggle if it has one. It should make a sound or move.

What do you mean when you say “or freezes up”? It stops, I guess, but then what? More details please.
