Most likely in tank check valve is leaking or belt is slipping. Belt tension easy to check, should not deflect with thumb pressure. Check valve should not let air escape out of tank. Easy to check. Run compressor till pressure builds to around 50 psi. Then unplug machine from power outlet. Listen for air leaking out of tank. In bad cases, air will actually leak out of intake filter. Replace check valve as needed. Good luck
Your compressor is leaking air somewhere between the compressor head and the tank. With the compressor running, feel carefully around the ends of the tube that leads from the compressor head to the air tank. You will probably feel some air leaking around one end or the other. If so... remove the tube and find out which packing has failed.
Sounds like your pressure regulator needs adjustment...
Turn the knob on the pressure regulator clockwise and you should start hearing air coming out of your hose...Once air is coming out, remove your hose and keep turning the regulator till you get to your desired working pressure normally around 90 psi...leave your pressure regulator at that setting and it will stay at that setting.
Please take time to rate me
This sounds like a problem with you check valve. This should seal after the air compressor shuts down but if there is a problem with the check valve then it will allow the air to escape back out from the take.

That is an extremely high pressure. I would firstly check to make sure that THAT is what you need, then MOST compressors have a regulator where you can adjust the pressure required. It is not so much the pressure you need as the STORAGE of air that you need for a pressure that high. MOST tanks are around the 20 or so litre. To utilise a tool requiring the pressure of 75PSI I suspect you would need a tank of somewhere around the 2-300 litre size or maybe even bigger. But first just make sure that you DO need the 75PSI you mentioned.
2 gallons is small to begin with u need to buy an in line pressure adjuster/regulator their a few bucks and can be attached to the paint gun or line and will keep the pressure at ur adjustment the regulator on the tank sets the tank pressure at 50 so when u us it will let it drop down to about 45 than start up to build the pressure up to 50 than shuts off than repeats it self the inline keeps pressure steady even if tanks are at 200 psi
Your compressor has got a 'ring' problem. The rings on the pistons that compress air are leaking air by them and need to be replaced. Unless it's the 'pressure release' leaking. When it gets to 40 PSI or so, unplug it and listen for a leak. If no leak then it's the rings. inside on the piston. If you adjust the pressure switch all the way low, it might shut off near where it builds pressure to and you could at least use it some.
Most likely the pump is leaking somewhere, if the new hose is not leaking. Hoses don't just burst without showing signs or wear and tear, i.e. cracking and splitting. The pump was probably having problems, and this caused the hose to burst. Look for signs of leakage, and if you can't find them, the pump is shot.
hi you say it wont hold pressure aftwer 50 psi /do you mean it wont make more than 50 psi
take air cleaner off get a piece of plastic pipe that will fit in your ear /braided fuel pipe is ok ,run the comp up ,put one end of pipe in inlet manifold /other end in your ear ,if you can hear escaping air valve is shot do the same with outlet valve if air escape is mimimum rings and piston are shot hope this helps silk090
