I have a D55146 Air Compressor that will start and build up

Customer Question

I have a D55146 Air Compressor that will start and build up pressure. When the pressure drops the compressor will not start back up until I lift up on the handle and drop it then the compressor starts right up.

Pressure switch is bad, it has to turn the motor off when pressure rises and turn motor back on when pressure drops. Your's is not working. There is nothing to do but replace the pressure switch.
