    At 40 psi does it stop running or continue to run but never build pressure?

    Is it an oilless type?

You may have a problem still related to the original reason it was reconditioned.

However, you should have a regulator that you set to the tank pressure you want to maintain. Most have a tool regulator as well and 40 psi sounds like that is what it is set for.

If you do have a tank pressure regulator and it is still not charging above 40 psi, then either take it back or pick up a new regulator for under $20 at Home Depot and replace the gauge you have now.

Also, sometimes the gauge will have a needle tilted so that one end presses against the glass, and if you tap the glass hard with your finger it will move on around to the correct pressure.

Finally, if you are not experienced with small compressors, look under your gauge and see if there is not a black knob that pulls out and pushes in to turn and change the pressure.

My check valve hose gets very hot, I saw a question, what is meant by regulated pressure?


  1. The regulated pressure is at the output of the pressure regulator i/e the air pressure being delivered to the air tool or spray gun.
  2. This can be set from just a few PSI up to about 180 PSI (on my Porter Cable unit).

My Porter Cable pancake outlet regulator doesn't seem to work.


If your quick coupler is not jammed up, (remove & test) and assuming you are pulling the regulator knob out to adjust the pressure and it is not stripped, you will need a new manifold kit.
There are about 6 versions of this unit so you will need model and type to get the correct part. There are no individual regulator parts available for this unit.

Why does the safety valve go off before the pressure switch on a porter cable 80 gal air compressor


The maximum pressure on most small compressors is 10 bar or 1000kpa which is about 145 psi in the old language most safety valves are set to 150 psi. I suggest you get some one to reduce the pressure switch setting. Running a compressor at elevated pressures does not give you any more air. A reasonable pressure for small compressors is 120 psi

A porter cable 135 psi 60 gallon upright


If the motor doesn't shut off at the desired pressure then your pressure switch is either set too high or is broken/stuck. The pressure leak at 150 psi is the safety valve doing its job opening when the pressure gets to an unsafe level in the tank.

I have a porter cable 6 gallon compressor. The motor used to cut out at 150 psi, but now it cuts out at 135. Is this a faulty tank pressure gauge misreading the pressure or a motor cutting out too early


it could be your air pressure adjustment knob, where your air line hooks up, which controls the psi to a lower or highist seting to adjust for different tools and uses.

Air has started leaking around the plus/minus knob on the front of my "Porter Cable C2002 150 Psi 6 Gal Compressor." As a result it no longer can fill up with air. What can I do to fix it. Jim


They will let air out if you have turned the valve out too far, try turning it clockwise until it stops then open it by turning the other direction two or three full turns.

Pressure does not go past 20-25 PSI


Hi

Perhaps it may be something to do with the setting of the pressure valve

No air pressure thru quick connect to tools-bag regulator?


I dont know if it is like mine,but if you can let the air out of it and remove the regulator knob,and it`s components,you may can set it to just to be open all the time,in other words,by pass the control knob valve.Shout back at me if I can help.
