Question about Ridgid 17038 4.5 Gallon Oil Free Twinstack Air Compressor
The rigid double stack oil compressor fills up with air fine.As i start to use it with my tools the air pressure will eventually go all the way down to zero than fills up without the compressor going on.It does this a couple of times and than goes on to refill.It doesn't get a consistent flow of air before turning on again.Do i need a new pressure adjuster?Is it an expensive fix?
Yes sounds like a defective pressure regulator, I would order a new one and replace it, pay attention to the flow direction when installing the new one, they have an arrow on them to indicate correct flow direction.

I would check the pressure switch. It probably has bad contacts in it. You could try to clean the contacts first before replacing the unit.
