The regulator/switches are either rusty, clogged, or need to be replaced. if you have some machanical aptitude and common sense this should be easy, if not have a pro or someone some knowledge of this type of thing handle it for you. in the future drain your compressor DAILY to avoid this problem

My 6 gallon porter cable compressor stop working, how can it be fixed?


Check the voltage at the pressure switch and be sure the connections that are there are tight. check the voltage to the motor. If you have voltage to the motor then replace the motor.

Usually when buying new/reconditioned it doesn't have the female coupling installed.You need to buy it separate and a roll of Teflon tape.On your model its to the right of the psi adjustment knob.Take a look at the link,it connect to the 2 brass peices on the front right.Good luck.

The manifold which holds the Air Hoses and control valve and gauge is broken and I need a new one ,dont know the part number


We repair lots of compressors with broken manifolds. Most compressors now use a manifold with a built in pressure regulator. We are not able to find exact matches so we use a manifold from porter cable or make one out of pipe fittings. If your compressor was made in china, most likely the thread and tubing sizes are almost impossible to match. To use porter cable parts, go to dewalt service center or to porter cable dealer and find close match then use that model number for ordering your part. Check closely that parts/thread/fittings will work.

HUSKY 26 Gallon Shuts Down After <75PSI!?


Possibly the pressure switch needs to be adjusted to reach a higher pressure. Trace the power cord into a box that also is piped into the pressure line from the compressor. If the pressure works itself back down again, use thread-locker fluid on the adjustment screw to hold it's setting.
