 Pressure switch problems
Author: Heeb (PA)

Hello. I just replaced my bladder tank. I have the pressure set to 28 pounds. The pressure switch is a 30-50. When my washer first turns on to fill up for the first cycle, when my pressure drops to the cut in, it arcs and trips the switch. It only does it on the first fill up. Runs fine after that. The switch works good any other time. Any he'll would be appreciated. Thanks

I'd start by increasing the cut in- cut off pressure by a couple pounds. A half turn or so of the nut on the tall shank in the switch should suffice.

Thank you. I am new at this. Would I turn the nut up or down? Thank you again.
