SOURCE: bostitch air compressor cap 60p-of

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.

SOURCE: Will only charge to 40 psi, is supposed to charge to 150

You may have a problem still related to the original reason it was reconditioned.

However, you should have a regulator that you set to the tank pressure you want to maintain. Most have a tool regulator as well and 40 psi sounds like that is what it is set for.

If you do have a tank pressure regulator and it is still not charging above 40 psi, then either take it back or pick up a new regulator for under $20 at Home Depot and replace the gauge you have now.

Also, sometimes the gauge will have a needle tilted so that one end presses against the glass, and if you tap the glass hard with your finger it will move on around to the correct pressure.

Finally, if you are not experienced with small compressors, look under your gauge and see if there is not a black knob that pulls out and pushes in to turn and change the pressure.

SOURCE: On a Bostitch CAP60P-OF air compressor I can get

i also own a bostitch and it works great, the pressure regulator knob on mine is red not sure if yours is the same color but just turn this knob until you get the nail depth that you need , it should be near the pressure gauge, a quarter turn of this knob at a time is recommended until you get the pressure you need, i think you turn it in the loosen direction to get more pressure

Testimonial: "I think you solved it. The threads are stripped that the red knob screws into. Thanks."

Why will my bostitch pancake compressor 240 psi tank 180 regulator that the guages will not show building pressure


Hi, There are different posibilities. I would need more information. Was it always like that? Does the guage on the main tank and the guage on the regulator both not show more than 20psi? When the auto shut-off is triggered do you feel there is more than 20 psi in the tank?

I have a porter cable 6 gallon compressor. The motor used to cut out at 150 psi, but now it cuts out at 135. Is this a faulty tank pressure gauge misreading the pressure or a motor cutting out too early


it could be your air pressure adjustment knob, where your air line hooks up, which controls the psi to a lower or highist seting to adjust for different tools and uses.

I do not know how/or where to insert the end of the hose to the Bostitch 1850BN compressor.

Usually when buying new/reconditioned it doesn't have the female coupling installed.You need to buy it separate and a roll of Teflon tape.On your model its to the right of the psi adjustment knob.Take a look at the link,it connect to the 2 brass peices on the front right.Good luck.

My stanley compressor will not shut off untill the safety pop off valve activates


The pressure cut off setting is too high. Locate your operation manual and adjust the pressure to the manufactures specs. Normal shut off pressure is @ 125 psi.
