I have a husky 26 gallon air compressor
Runs good Starts up shuts off about 60 pounds I turn the compressor off wait 15 minutes turn it back on
Runs for about 20 minutes builds up to 90 pounds and shuts off Turn switch back off wait 15 minutes turn back on goes up to 115 pounds shut off again
Can anybody help me let me know what the problem is
It seems as though the compressor is taking too long to fill, running too long at one stretch, and going off on thermal cut out. When the motor cools, the compressor will start, and the cycle repeats.

Thanks for the information
Do you know the part numbers for the seal kit
If you Google “parts for (put model number here) air compressor” you will find sources.
I don’t know how to change the bit on the compressor. Please help.
Hi there. I’m afraid I don’t know what you mean by “bit” on the compressor. Can you provide more info?

I did not need to shut it off because on my return it had stoped running and on the floor surrounding it was a thin plastic debris field where something under the shroud had exploded but was… Read more »
I have a Husky model # F2S20VWD , its a 20gal 150 PSI, Problem is it will continuously run, will not reach 150psi, only gets to about 115, I replaced the check valve # E106123, thinking because air is always coming out the hole. this did not fix the issue.any ideas? pressure valve?
Well Rob, the tank check valve is certainly one of the things to check. Others can be found here: http://fix-my-compressor.com/compressor-will-not-build-pressure/ .
I have that same model and that same issue. I almost ordered a check valve thinking the same as you Rob. I guess I’ll take the shroud off and look at a couple other things associated in the article willyr suggests first.
