Youor problem is actually the unloader valve. Your pressure switch is an older style Condor MDR21 (http://www.google.com/imgres?q=condor+mdr21+pressure+switch&hl=en&biw=1244&bih=739&tbm=isch&tbnid=SpfaC0uYVDGONM:&imgrefurl=http://www.bettervac.com/hitachi-881575-pressure-switch-condor-mdr-21.asp&docid=QTBY4coa024BpM&w=242&h=242&ei=qi2PTsbDKZCutwe2vMGsDA&zoom=1). The check valve is connected directly to the tank and the feeder line for the unloader connects to it, as well as the main line from the compressor pump. doing a little research on google you should be able to find one for less than 20 dollars. Or you can replace/upgrade your pressure switch to a newer model, which is shown in most of the manuals and parts break downs. Yours is probably the pre 2005 model. If you still need more assistance please repost with additional questions.

The most common problem with ec12 compressor is the non return valve part # 881-581 (check valve). The purpose of this valve is to hold pressure in tank. When the valve begins to leak, the air will be discharged thu unloader valve at the pressure switch. Simple repair, order valve from www.toolpartsdirect.com or you can use generic valve from www.grainger.com Good luck and post again if you have other question.
