Question about Porter Cable 18 - Gauge Brad Nailer and Compressor Combo Kit
The leak sounds like it is coming from the motor that sits on top of the canister. It is a pretty substantial leak from the sound. Any suggestions. Thanks
Tap on the check valve on the tank (located on the pancake, right side). It may take a few times but it worked for me. If that doesn't work, you'll need to replace it. The check valve is leaking and not exhausting from the top area of the motor. It goes without saying that, thats where the hose is leading to. Good Luck!

I've burned through two Mdl 2005s. Finally I realized that the catch up isn't quick enough so the compressor motor runs most of the time when I'm putting up trim. I switched to a Dewalt vertical tank, 15 gallons, D55168, which has more volume. On staple guns and nailers, it's great. It runs more on spray painters, even HVLP's, but keeps up. Been in service 2 years now, and I don't baby my my equipment. Still light enough for one man to roll to a pickup or trailer and pull up into it.
200 PSI and 5.4 CFM handles most equipment.

REMOVE COVER. SOUNDS LIKE HEAD OR VALVE PLATE GASKET. MARK HEAD AND OTHER PARTS SO YOU CAN PUT IT BACK TOGETHER.
