Pressure switch failures??

by Mike

I’m on my third pressure switch in last 6 mo months. Keeps failing open and I can flip it hard and it will grunt but not start. Checked voltage and everything is normal. It’s a Campbell Hausfeld 60 gallon single stage.

Switch failing open?
by: Bill

Can you please confirm that when the switch "fails", that power is not passing through it, though the tank pressure level is well below the normal cut out of the switch?

And, what is the cut in / cut out of the latest switch, please?

How long have you had it?

What horsepower and voltage?

Are the contacts burning up?

Are you using OEM switches? If not, what?

Had you moved it when this started?
