I saw a portable Porter Cable air compressor for sale, $40, but it says not shutting off.

It's this an easy fix? Cheap fix? Suggestions what's wrong?

Bad pressure switch should be a cheap fix. Ed

Probably contacts are arc'ed/stuck ON in the pressure switch. 99% Replace pressure switch and good to go.

is it building pressure?, is it leaking, if the answer is no to both of those.. probably pressure switch.

What size is the compressor? Is it a made in USA Porter Cable Compressor or Chinesium? If it's a smaller Pancake compressor, you can get something for $40 from Harbor Freight for that price, brand new.

I have a Porter cable pancake compressor that a bought back in 2003 way before I knew about HF.

It's 150psi, 6.0cfm @ 90psi, 3.5hp peak, 1.6hp running

I'm going to see it tomorrow. If it's building pressure close to 150, I'll buy it.
