will not restart until cools off

My 22 gallon compressor runs great but once it auto shuts down it will not restart until it cools off and do not know what to do. It is under warranty but in our location it is hard to find someone to come look at it. I am in Ormond Beach, Florida 32174

Kobalt will not restart
by: Bill

Are you sure the tank drain is closed?

Are you using an extension cord? If so, that may be the problem.

Is your Kobalt compressor shutting off when it reaches the normal cut out pressure, Jacob, or is it shutting down before the pressure in the tank reaches the normal cut out?

If no power issues (check to be sure it's a 20 amp circuit on the power supply)and there is no unusual loss of air when it's trying to fill, if this were my compressor, I'd be taking it back to the Lowes store where I got it for a replacement. It sounds as though you have a lemon if it's shutting down improperly.
