On this particular issue, I agree with trpabc, given the description; you most likely need a new pressure switch. It's unlikely that it suddenly got out of adjustment, therefore a new one is in order.
I had the same issue you had, and after reading your post, I went down to my garage to investigate... Turns out the valves in the compressor are just simple reed valves, like on a 2-cycle engine, and my inlet valve had some gunk baked on it, which didn't allow it to shut all the way, giving me only 60 PSI. I cleaned all the parts with a wire brush, then polished the surfaces with 1000 grit sandpaper, and it runs like a new one again. :o) I don't think you can actually crack those thin sheets of metal...

I have a Central Pneumatic Frame Nailer the driver will go down but not back up unless you disconnet air supply.

You can call Harbor Freight and see if they have the repair kit available. 1-800-444-3353. Sometimes they change the models and will not have parts available. It may take up to 6 weeks for you to get your parts if they are available. Be prepared to wait. The parts will not be expensive. Depending on which seal you are talking about, you may have to order an assembly. I am directly talking about the trigger seal. This part seems to crumble the most. If you require more information please post additional information about your model and the seals you are requiring.
