Question about Flotec TC2104 0-100PSI Pressure Gauge

1 Answer

When the pressure hits 100 psi it does not shut off automatically

I am using a 6 gallon tank to run dragsters down a 24 foot track. When we first used it, the air compressor would automatically shut off and on to keep the pressure at 100 psi. Now it just continues to run until I manually shut it off. What do I need to do to fix this problem? I am thinking pressure value.

Replace the pressure valve. It is not sensing the pressure properly and that is why you are having this problem. Why it failed is beyond anyone

What causes my booster pump to increase pressure even after I shut power and or water supply off?


something wrong here. your incoming pressure is 4 psi ( tank pressure to the pump and you use a pump to boost pressure to a maximum of 65 psi at which point the pump is shut off ( all taps close off)
yet with no pumps running the pressure goes up to 100 psi
Find where you are getting pressure in that is making the pump leak
if you have 100 psi to the pump when it is turned off, then it would not be turning on ( power on) as the shut off pressure is set at 65 psi and the line pressure is 100 psi

My bostitch 6 gal compressor keeps running , and running , even goes into a higherpitch motor noise. can i check something ? or clean something to fix it ?


is it building up any pressure on the gauge
if the pressure recorded is around 40 psi or less , replace the failed poppet/reed valves in the compressor head
if it goes to 100 psi then replace the automatic controller for the motor

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.

My water system is loosing pressure. The pump runs until it gets to the preset of 50 psi but when it stops, the pressure drops right away. if I shut off the pump, it drops to 0 psi. I checked the pressure...


There is a screened check valve that should be attached to the pick up / suction side of the pump on the very end of the plumbing in the bottom of the well. If you have shut off the water output going to the home / what ever and the pump still drops pressure to zero as soon as it shuts off the shallow well foot valve is stuck open / has failed.

Some systems use both a foot valve and an in-line check valve to prevent the symptom you currently have.

Foot valve example:
http://www.docolfaucets.com/ingles/produtos_detalhe/docolvalves-24/check-valve-and-retention-valve-93/foot-valve-for-well-w-check-valve-line-bsp-thread-348/foot-valve-for-well-w-check-valve-1928
More examples:
http://www.plumbingsupply.com/wellpart.html

http://www.plumbingsupply.com/images/well-footvalve.jpg

If this valve has failed... there is nothing to prevent the contents of the pressure tank from dumping back into the shallow well.
I doubt you have a shut off on the pump suction side but if you do once the pump shuts off close this valve. I would bet your pressure tank holds the pressure. If you do not have a shut off valve... just feel for a rush of water in the suction pipe AFTER the pump reaches pressure and shuts off. If your feeling water flow with the pump off and the tank at pressure / loosing pressure the foot valve is bad.

Its at 100 psi, im trying to push it up more but when i turn the knob the psi wont go up. when its pumping and me turning the knob seems to go up 125 max, but when i use it, it goes rite back down to 100...


When you want full pressure / volume from the tank, you will need to bypass the regulator. Easy task. Drain air from tank. Remove the safety pop valve (usually 1/4 npt thread) and install a tee fitting. Replace the pop valve on one port and install a quick connect on the other giving you full pressure when you need it. Good luck with your projects.

Compressor runs until overload release valve opens (pressure at 130 psi) and then air escapes until pressure lowers to 100 psi..Then motor begins to restart, but will not , due to 100 psi and kicks breaker...


There is a check valve between the compressor and tank, and there is also an 'unloader valve' which blows the pressure off the compressor so that it starts under little load. I think your check valve is stuck open and the unloader valve is blowing tank pressure off.. and when the compressor tries to start it's starting against the pressure in the tank.

So check/replace/thaw the check valve and you'll be good to go. It's generally at the tank where the line from the compressor head goes into the tank, it'll be between the two somewhere.

I have a model FP209501 Air Compressor 2 Gallon,


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
