Question about Stanley Air Tools & Compressors
My compressor is not hold air. it will only get up to 20 psi and does not go past that. help
Mine had the same problem.
One of the reed valves in the head had broken off due to metal fatigue. Take off black plastic housing with 5 screws along the bottom and one bolt under the handle (the front only). Unscrew the four allen headed screws on top of the compressor. Unscrew the discharge line from the head. You'll need part # AB-A640050 which is the valve plate assy. and possibly AB-9007012 which is the intake valve located in the top of the piston (if damaged). About $18 including shipping from Bostitch.

Turn the gauge up to allow more air or try checking the drain plug on bottom of tank to see if it tight.
If these 2 don't fix it check all connections for leaks.
