compressor not shutting off

Question:
model 835533 s/n 0707000107 used intermittently, works with exception that it will not come up to max pressure and shut off. is problem with pressure switch? have not made any adjustments. if switch is likely to need to be replaced please provide part no and pertinent info.
Answer:
Hello-Please look for a copper tube running from the regulator to the tank where it passes thru a brass valve and inside the valve is a sprting loaded orifice that can become clogged with some contaminant.  Remove the valve and clear the obstruction to return the unit to full operation.
Thanks for asking,
Carl
