    I have a Ingersoll Rand SS5-E 60 gallon air compressor. The high pressure switch is not working and the pump doesn't shut off. I replaced the switch a few years back, this is the second switch. Is there someway I can fix the switch? Why are they going bad? :(

    It may be the diaphragm in the switch went south.
    I think they aren't repairable, but locate a parts manual and see...
