I have the same make/model. Connect a device to your air line (impact, blow gun, doesn't matter anything that will use air). Operate the device and note if the pressure on your output gauge falls, and then rises back to 20# when you let off of the device. If it does, this indicates that your regulator is either defective, or it is adjusted too low. Try adjusting the regulator knob, operating it in both directions, and note the pressure on the output gauge. If you can get it to rise, you're home free!

How to quick thaw a 20lb. turkey


quick thaw a 20lb. turkey Willie, in the sink, with cool water, you will have to continuously turn and run new water over bird until you feel sufficiently thawed. I find this method better then microwave thawing.

Pump not holding presure


If you have a bladder - type water pressure tank, it probably needs to be purged of air and then pre-charged to 18 psi. There may be directions on the side of the tank. Turn the water Pump off. Drain the tank of water. Check the pressure of the tank at the air valve on top of the tank. The pre-charged pressure of the bladder is set to 2 psi below the lower pressure set by the pressure switch, so in your case, the low end pressure is 20 psi. Therefore, the pre-charge pressure of the tank is 18 psi. If you set the pressure switch to operate at 30 -50 psi, then the pre-charge pressure would be 28psi., etc. Once the pre-charge pressure is set, turn the pump back on. ( don't forget to close the drain valve). The system should cycle normally. A tire gauge works to check the tank pressure. An air compressor may be used to charge the tank, but be careful not to over- inflate the bladder. A tire air pump may also be used. Hope this helps....

Can a 20lb tank be hooked up to a Coleman 2 Burner Stove 5430A


Yes. There are multiple adapters made to fit this application. Your local walmart most likely will have them. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Coleman-5-High-Pressure-Propane-Hose-and-Adapter/19897422

Printer picks several pages at a go instead of one. What can I do?


Riffle the paper a few times prior to putting it in the infeed tray. You might try inverting the paper to see if one side is more prone than the other to the stacking problem.
If you have the luxury of being able to adjust the infeed roller pressure (to accommodate different paper weights), adjust it for your paper weight (20lb, 24lb, 64lb, etc)

Have you ran an Oil pressure test? low oil pressure (20lb)or no oil pressure(0lb)and the lifters will not open the valves enough to let fuel in to the cylinder to start your engine!

How do i set the low pressure on the flotec switch


your pump should have a 20lb seperation ie. pump turns on at 20lb and off at 40lb or on at 50lb off at 70lb. under the cover of the switch theres two screws with springs under them.dont mess with the small one.the large one if you screw it down (right) will increase the pressure while maintaining the 20lb separation. one thing to keep in mind its fine to adjust the pressure BUT at the same time the air pressure in the tank needs to be adjusted to two lbs below the cut in pressure of the pump.

I believe the directions are in the top of the cover of the switch
