Usually to convert the regulator you remove the knob in the center of the regulator by pushing it in and turning it. Then remove knob and flip it over and re install it there should be Nat and L.P. markings on the knob. Hope this helps.

No regulated pressure


Pressure regulator can fail giving little or no pressure at quick connect. There is a plunger inside of reg that can get stuck due to moisture/rust and /or threads of adjustment knob could strip. Back side of regulator (opposite the knob) find a hex nut. Remove nut (let out all the air from tank before removing nut) and pull plunger/spring away, clean , lube and reinstall for test. If still no joy, remove knob by moving stop pin up (tiny pin close to lip of knob and or spring clip) and turning counter clock wise. Remove the piston from cylinder of reg making note of how it was installed, lube and reinstall, make sure that the threads inside the knob are good. Replace knob and turn in to max pressure. If still no joy, replace reg or install temp air outlet. To install temp outlet, remove safety pop valve (remove all air from tank) and install tee fitting. Reinstall pop valve to one port of the tee fitting and quick connect to the other (or generic regulator ((sold at Lowes)) between quick connect). Good luck

Brand new compressor...air builds in tank but turning the regulator result in no change in the regulated pressure. Tried turning the regulator to make sure it moves freely, and it seems to, but still no...


The regulator has a very strong spring inside causing knob to get harder to turn as you increase the pressure (increase clockwise). If the knob is easy to turn most likely stripped inside. If knob gets tight as you turn then plunger at rear of regulator is stuck. On the back side of the manafold directly opposite the adjustment knob is a small nut housing a plunger. Let out all the air from the tank and remove the nut. Seperate the nut and plunger, lube and re-install. If the regulator knob is stripped you will need to replace the manafold or as a temp fix remove the safety valve (let out air from tank first) and install a tee fitting. On one port of the tee reinstall the safety valve and on second port install quick fitting for full tank pressure (or install aftermarket pressure regulator ).

Worked fine previously. Now when turned on the tank pressure comes up normally . However, the regulated pressure gauge reads zero and there is no airflow.


What happens when you twist the regulated pressure knob, as you would to increase the regulated pressure? Does the knob turn? Does it turn until it stops, but still reads zero? If so, it sounds like the regulator pressure spring is broken. That's inside the regulator, and you will probably have to replace the regulator.

How do you utilize the air pressure control knob.


Most air pressure regulator knobs work like a "child-proof" cap on a medicine vial.  It has a spring inside that keeps it dis-engaged from the tooth like gears inside.  To turn the knob you must first pull out or push in the knob.  You should feel some resistance from the spring inside.  As you pull, you will feel the knob seat into the "teeth" inside.  Then you can turn the knob and change the air pressure supplied.   Note:  most air regulator valves work in the opposite manner of regular water valves.  Turning the knob clockwise should increase the air pressure... counter clockwise should decrease the pressure.       I hope this solution will bring you success.   Best Regards,  Michael Mittelsdorf

Humming noise


1st. Are the humming evident when the flame ain't burning? Listen carefully. The control(knob) consists of a valve that regulate the supply of gas to the burner. Check each knob(valve) individually for noise. If noise is evident on the knob(valve) contact your dealer for service or replacement of valve.
2nd. Check the gas regulator. That will be the unit that is exiting the gas bottle. Noise might be evident from the regulator due to the gas being controlled. If excessive noise is evident. Service or replacement of the unit might be necessary.
