Question about Air Tools & Compressors
If you are talking about the pressure relief valve...when you start the compressor does air continue to blow out of it?? If so, it is rendered defective and should be replaced. There is probably a flake of debris stuck in the seat or due to humidity in the compressed air its internal workings have rusted and are causing it to stick. Not worth the chance to attempt repairing, just replace it.

no. it's meant to vent air once the compressor reaches a certain pressure. on some compressors it's adjustable. others are not adjustable. it is actually possible to buy a higher pressure check valve if you need the extra pressure as long as the compressors internals can handle it.
