Re: front air hose hook up is missing
Here are a couple of ideas that may help. If you have a local Lowes store neer you, take your compressor with you into the store and have the tool salesman help you with the parts that you need. They stock regulators, quick disconnect fittings and hose fittings. If you do not need quick disconnect fittings you could just thread the hose to the pressure side of regulator or fitting. Standard pipe plumbing sizes are used. Second solution would be to take compressor to an auto parts store. They also stock all the fittings and related parts. Good luck, enjoy.

you should put an inline air flow valve in the line for the mask you can put a T connector on the end of the hose so both the spray gun and mask can use the air line at the same time. It will work well if the compressor is large enough to handle the CFM of both the gun and the mask
I believe that you have a very simple problem related to the in-tank check valve. Follow the discharge hose from the compressor to the tank. It should connect to a brass or chrome valve. This valve has a one way check valve that allows air into tank and not return to compressor (if air leaks back, compressor will be under load (motor will not overcome) and air will leak from the pressure switch unloader valve). With air in the tank, remove the hose at the check valve and spray soapy water to verify leak, replace part or clean as needed. Good luck
Air leaking from the pressure switch indicates that the in-tank check valve is leaking. Follow the air discharge hose from the compressor to the tank. The brass valve at the tank is the check valve. With air in the tank remove the inlet hose from the checkvalve and spray soapy water on valve to check for leaks. If leaking, remove the valve and check for debris under seat or replace. If the check valve is not leaking then pressue switch is leaking from within switch(spray soapy water below switch) . Good luck
The air discharge hose will normally get very hot. When the pressure regulator valve fails, it may no longer give you air. As a temp measure you can get air out of the unit by removing the safety pop valve and installing a tee fitting in the port. On one side of t fitting reinstall safety. On the second port install a quick connect for full tank pressure. Make sure that there is not air in the tank by pulling on the ring of the safety before you take it off. Replacement parts are at www.toolpartsdirect.com or dewalt service center. Good luck
Yep that's a problem! You should be able to purchase good quality air hose from any good hardware or tool store. I find the coil hoses to be more of a pain than they are worth (always tangling up on itself). I use straight hose now of high quality.
The d55155 unit suffers from regulator problems due to weakness in the design of the manifold. The manifold parts are very light duty metal and will break during installation if not carefull. If you can return the parts to dewalt it may be more efficient to to use a generic pressure regulator from www.grainger.com for about 20 bucks and mount using a couple of 1/4" tees directly off the pressure switch. Remove the hose from the pressure switch that feeds air to the manafold . Install parts so that the quick disconnects, guages and new regulator are accessable from the side. It will not be pretty but problem will be solved for long term. We repair other brands that come with control panels using the same method. Pressure regulators built into a manafold will fail. For demanding customers we have recreated the manafold using 1/4 pipe fittings and refit the gauges and grainger regulator into panel.(lots of work) But leave the safety unloader at the pressure switch. If all you need is a good functioning compressor same time and money and mount to side. Good Luck and email if you have questions or other issues with your dewalt.
