APT Compressor Shutting Off

High summer temperatures can sometimes cause overheating with APT compressors. Here's how to fix it.

Are there any indicator lights?

    • These will indicate system failure. 
    • Likely overheating.

What is the ambient air temperature?

1. Turn down the pressure in the air compressor to 100 psi. It will be able to go back up once the weather cools down. Here's how:

2. With the compressor running, locate the Pressure Regulator. Pull it up, then rotate it counter-clockwise.
