Question about Air Tools & Compressors
Try putting another coupling directly on the tank.
Usually there are 2 gauges. The first one shows the pressure in the air tank and the second on shows the pressure that you like to let out.
So on top of the second gauge there is a pressure regulator. To adjust you have to grab the round object on top of the second gauge pull upp then rotate to adjust air flow.

SOURCE: Start up problem
The problem that you describe is caused by the in-tank check valve and/ or the unloader at the pressure switch. When the compressor cycles off the pressure switch releases the air that remains in the air line thru a small valve. There is a 1/4 " plastic tube extending from the check valve to the switch. Listen for the release of air as soon as the compressor stops. There is a small metal tab that pushes on the unloader valve that may need to be adjusted. The motor does not have enough power to start pumping if there is air/backpressure in the air line. If these parts are working correctly then check the value of the start capacitor and use meter to measure. The cap should test within 95 % of stated value. Parts are available at www.chpower.com.

You might have a broken valve. You'll need to pull the head apart. But make sure replacement parts are available first. Does this unit have an unloader valve on it ? That could also be your problem. You probably should check this first

It sounds like you may have a broken reed on the diaphragm plate. This is located at the block. Remove the cover, and look for a cast metal assembly with fins. It will be attached to the side.

you might need to checktosee if the filter is blocked or dirty were the air intake is just like a car dirt can build up there.
