I removed the pressure switch because it was leaking on the gasket and a spring came out.
I can see where one end of the spring goes but I’m not sure about the other end.I have provided photos of the pressure switch and spring. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Need to see a close up of exactly where the spring is suppose to be positioned. Thank you if you can solve my problem.
I just need to see this in a very close up photo.

This is a photo of the pressure switch small contact spring position that someone was looking for.
This next is a photo of how to fit the contact spring – Use a wire loop to hold the spring to install it.
Use a wire loop to close Spring under tension and slide into location hole and slot on contact lever
Thank you Andy from New Zealand
Your advice is much appreciated, as are the photos.
I WORKED IT OUT.
I managed to work out where the other end of the spring went, but it wasn’t easy. It flicks the contacts off when the pressure reaches its set limit and on when pressure reaches its set low. Took me a while to work it out, it wasn’t obvious at all.
New comment? New question? Please add it here along with photos to help others help you with your compressor and equipment problem!
can you tell me or show me exactly where the other end of the spring goes.
This is a closeup of the opposite side of the switch previously shown in Andy’s comment. You can see both ends of the spring. I used a pick with a right angle tip inserted in the coil of the spring to pull the spring through the switch body into position. It’s also necessary to place the coil end of the spring between the fingers on the opposite side of the switch as shown in Andy’s picture. It’s a tricky maneuver but possible thanks to Andy’s pictures.
Thankyou very much, three days of trying down to 10 minutes fixed.
So where does the coil and other end of the spring go? photo?
Might be easier for folks to help John if you indicated the make and model of pressure switch, and the make and model of compressor it came off of. Can you add that info as a comment in this thread? Thanks.
Yeah, a pic or three might help, too.
You can see it in Andy’s picture. It rests against the fingers on the opposite side of the switch. You need to make sure one of the ends of the spring (not the coil) ends up between the fingers in Andy’s picture.
