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.

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.

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."
