Can you tell me how to adjust the auto shut off on a craftsman air compressor?

I just purchased a new pressure switch for my craftsman air compressor. the model is 919.15294. the compressor now stops filling with air at 140 psi. is this pressure safe? the old switch would stop the compressor from filling at 120 psi. if 140 psi is not safe can you explain to me how to adjust it to stop filling at 120 psi?

The compressor pumping to 140psi is safe. It would take way more pressure before something would blow out on the compressor or tank.

The pressures that a switch will shut down the unit can vary from switch to switch. I wouldn't worry with it as long as it never goes to over 160-175psi. Generally if your switch is shutting it down at 140 it's always going to do that. Over time, it could get to where it shuts it down before 140, but I don't think I've ever seen one that increased over time.
