Question about Campbell Hausfeld 02-Gallon Air Compressor - FP2048

1 Answer

Exploding air hose

I purchased a 2 gallon air compressor model FP 2048. I took the air hose out of the box. Without hooking the air hose to the compressor I stretched the hose out. When I did this the hose broke sprung to gether and pieces flew everywhere. The pieces cut my face and left hand. The hose was hard brittle blue plastic in the shape of a spring. I contacted the store where I bought it and said they would contact the supplier. They never did and now no longer know where the compressor went. I kept a piece of the hose and it is as hard as a plastic Bic pen.

Yep that's a problem! You should be able to purchase good quality air hose from any good hardware or tool store. I find the coil hoses to be more of a pain than they are worth (always tangling up on itself). I use straight hose now of high quality.

I need a diagram to show how to hook up pressure regulator


This is my advice if you dont already have a regulator. Go to menards or lowes andlook for a regulator kit. They usually come with everything you will need to put a good one on your compressor. Instructions will come with it along with the threaded pipe to hook it up with. I myself just got a pressure regulator kit from Theisenes.
I started by removing my air hose from the tank, next youll need to attach the regulator to the tank where you removed the hose, your kit should have prethreaded
metal air pipe to go from the tank to the regulator (use thread tape or joint sealer to prevent leaks ) Now use your sealer to seal airhose to the other end of the regulator the airoutlet side. Turn it on abd check for leaks and see if you can set your pressure regulator to a set pressure If it holds without leaking you did a great job GOOD LUCK!!!!! SignedTaz

i think quick connects will work for you, as long as you are talking nail guns or impact guns etc..

you can hold the tools between you legs and use your good hand to work the fitting

I need a wiring diagram for a kobalt 60 gallon air compressor


If it's a 220 volt motor, hook l1 and l2 (220 volts) to the line terminals. If it's a'dual voltage' motor (120 or 220)and you want to use 120, hook 120 to the terminals marked 'line'. Make sure the motor is connected for the voltage you're using if it's dual voltage.
