Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Craftsman air compressor Model 919.165300. The regulator will only adjust to 50psi output. Inside the regulator is a metal stud that has lh threads on one end and a square shape on the opposite end. The stud has a hex nut assembled on the thd. end. Where should the nut be positioned on the threads? My thoughts are this is the adjustment to increase or decrease the output psi. thanks for any help.

You must close the gas valve orifice. There is a gas valve (silver or grey colored rectangular shaped piece which feeds the burner(s)) that has a brass or gold-colored hex nut. This nut (1/2 inch) needs to be tighten down clockwise to the stop point. This will regulate the flame.

The spray gun consumes more air volume than the compressor can deliver. You can pause painting periodically to allow the compressor to 'catch-up' or buy a larger delivered-volume compressor. The compressor that you have was intended to supply air for pneumatic nailers and staplers in an intermittent fashion. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Propane Regulator Adjustment
Remove the plastic cover on the center of the regulator. To increase pressure setting, turn the plastic disk beneath with a screw driver. 1 turn clockwise increases the pressure 1/2" water column.

sounds like it was turned too far back, its just a spring and a screw in there see if you can t turn it to the positive enough times to make it come back if not you might have to replace the regulator, i wouldn't recommend trying to dismantle it and fix it, it could cause serious injury or damage to tools, also the plastic knob may be striped out on top
