My regulator on my compressor keeps leaking from the top. When I turn on compressor it just keeps filling up in the regulator maxes out at 200psi and blows the safety valve. model D55146 type 2


Hello. W/D here.
Check the rating tag on the safety valve that is letting the pressure off of the tank. I'm pretty sure that it is less than the 200 psi that you are seeing.
What I believe is that the contacts in the pressure switch are either set too high, or the switch is bad. Check the rating for your switch, it's kick in (on) and kick out (off) pressures. If you have these values, you can set the switch yourself. Pump the pressure up to where you want it to kick out (off) and stop the compressor at that pressure by pulling the plug. Remove the contacts cover and adjust the spring until the contacts part, setting the contacts to the actual pressure. Drain the air down to below the kick in point. Replace the cap over the contacts, and turn the compressor back on. It should kick off at the pressure that you dialed in.
If the contacts will not set, or if there is too much carbon on the contacts, or if you note any burned wires or melted terminals, replace the switch. Minor carbon on the points can be removed with an emery board or fine sandpaper, and this should be regarded as a temporary fix.
Best regards, --W/D--

What's with the warning label limiting the tank life to the year 2020? It seems to only be on Dewalt compressors.


I am thinking that like an underground gasoline storage tank or a BBQ grill propane tank, big brother has instituted a maximum life on the tank because it is pressurized.

Tank pressure 120 regulated pressure 200. how can


If your pressure cut-off switch is faulty, it will keep running. Could be very dangerous. MSC has switches with different ranges. I had this problem once with an 80 gal. compressor. It was running and I cautiously walked over and shut it off. At this point it had 200psi built up. Yes, I was scared but a new regulator fixed it. The old contacts were rusty and wouldn't release. Hope this helps.
