Check the check valve. They are usually where the air line goes into the air tank. On some they are a teflon washer that starts to leak. There is a spring that closes the valve after each pulse of air is pushed into the tank.

Compressor will only build pressure to 75 psi and stop and compressor keeps running what could be wrong


If you can hear air bleeding off through the air filter when you turn it off then the check valve has failed on the compressor discharge to tank line and cannot overcome the tank pressure. If there is no air coming out through the air filter than the intake and dischare valves have become weak or are broken/not seating. Post your findings, I wil see if i can help I worked on compressors for 5+ years

Two things I'd look at first, the belt to see if it slips and check the water level in your tank, may need to drain it.

I have a Husky model Y6010 air compressor.


First remove the valve using probably about a 1/2" wrench but make sure there is no pressure in the tank before you do so. check the cone and seal by loosening the valve by hand and check for debris. If there is no debris then the problem is either the pressure relief valve or weak pressure regulator but may also be a bad piston seal if it is a direct drive unit.

Will a 1/3 hp compressor fire an 18 guage 5/8'-2" Finish nailer?


You compessor is ideal for a small spray gun however a pin nailer requires 80 to 100 psi and a small air storage thank to operate properly. The nailer may very well shoot a short nail into very soft wood at 30 psi, however there may not be enough pressure to push the piston back to top positon to load another nail and fire again. Good Luck
