Question about Porter Cable 18 - Gauge Brad Nailer and Compressor Combo Kit

1 Answer

Compressor is bleeding air from the drain valve

The drain valve on the bottom of the compressor is bleeding air and the screw is pulled out tight. I think it might be a problem with the valve inside the stem. Has anyone run across this?

When I start my Job boss air compressor model#cffr350b It builds pressure to set psi and stops. Then after using any air gun for a while the pressure drops and the motor kicks in and struggle and will pop...


Whats happening is the compressor is trying to start with pressure on the head/ compressor. The motor is not strong enough to over come the pressure so the motor tries to run ,may be hum a little and pops the breaker. When you bleed the pressure in the tank down the motor does not have to over come the pressure and starts up as it normally would. Now, your problem is the check valve between the tank and compressor. It needs to be replaced. It is allowing pressure in the tank back to the compressor. Thus the compressor tries to start and can't. Trace the line from the compressor to the tank. You should find the check valve screwed into the tank and the compressor discharge line screwed into the check valve. Remove the compressor discharge line,then remove the check valve. Assemble in reverse . also you can loosen the fitting at the compressor. if it blows air all the time it's the check valve for sure.

Pressure gauge doesn't seem to work. The compressor pumps to 125,the safety valve trips,the pressure drops to 90, the compressor then kicks back on. adjusting the pressure gauge has no affect.


hi mate to adjust the pressure you need to take the cover off the pressure switch by unscrewing a little screw in the middle then it will pull off then inside you will find a screw /a bolt with sighns next to it saying + and - unscrew to decrease pressure screw in to increase pressure the pressure guage just tells you how much air is in the tank and when the compressor turns off it will bleed the air off in the system just incase you didnt know

Locks up on restart untill the pressure. is down around 50 lbs.and kicks out the breaker


The pressure bleed valve is not working when the compressor shuts off. It is supposed to drain pressure from the compressor air line to the check valve and pressure regulator switch so that the compressor restarts with low pressure in the output line.

Dewalt 4 gal air compressor will not build pressure in take.


The bleed valve is an unloader of sorts that allows the compressor to start with-out a load. It closes when the pressure in the airline reaches about 20-25lbs with good volume. If air volume is not sufficient, the valve will not close. To solve the problem lets do a few tests. A long cord will reduce power and reduce air volume. Try powering the compressor with-out extension cord. If bleed valve closes when you do not use a cord, the compressor is not getting enough voltage, use shorter cord of the 12 gauge quality and more hose to reach work. If valve still does not close, check for air leaks on all fittings including around pressure switch and drain valve with soapy water. Repair as necessary and retest. If no leaks were found, temporarily plug bleed valve port with screw/bolt and run compressor till set pressure cut-off while counting minuites/seconds. The compressor should fill and shut off within three minutes or so. If it takes an unusually long time to fill, then the reed valves /valve plate is worn and leaking pressure back into cylinger. Leaking valves will usually result in very hot discharge airline/air. Reinstall the bleed valve after test. Parts and partslist are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com . Good luck on the repair and email if you have other questions.

Bostitch air compressor cap 60p-of


Mine had the same problem.
One of the reed valves in the head had broken off due to metal fatigue. Take off black plastic housing with 5 screws along the bottom and one bolt under the handle (the front only). Unscrew the four allen headed screws on top of the compressor. Unscrew the discharge line from the head. You'll need part # AB-A640050 which is the valve plate assy. and possibly AB-9007012 which is the intake valve located in the top of the piston (if damaged). About $18 including shipping from Bostitch.
