I vill tell you exactly what the problem is! You have to take the 4 head bolts and carefully lift the head up, be careful with the aluminum tubing that comes off as you lift the head. Pay close attention to how the tubing fits in the groove. When you get the head completely off you will see a very flat thin piece of metal with 3 arms or legs all in how you want to see it. These arms are actually like a one way valve. Carefully undo the screw that holds it in place and check under all the arms.
What happens is a small piece of debris as small as a pin head or smaller gets caught up under one of these arms and wont allow it to close properly causing the compressor to not be able to build up air pressure. Clean under these arms and reassemble the unit and presto, you are back in business! Let me know if it works at dlweeks59@gmail.com Thanks, Donald

Starts to light but goes right out


Vaporized propane sounds just like air coming through a hose. Turkey fryers use a different regulator than a standard barbecue which uses a low pressure -- 11" water column displacement. Pressure for a BBQ is measured in displacement because LP pressure is very low, less than half one pound PSI. Turkey fryers use a higher pressure so more gas is able to feed to the burner but the regulator diaphragm adjusts because of the adjustment wheel. However, before determining the regulator needs to be replaced, adjust the air shutter on the venturi and ensure the orifice is clear. LP must be mixed with air in the burner in order to burn but if the shutter is open too much we can hear air-flow and too much air can definitely cause that sound and cause flames to blow out. We have a video at you---e showing the adjustment with too much air blowing-out the flames. First check your connections and orifice to make sure there are no leaks or impediments. Second restart the burner with the air shutter almost closed and continue making adjustments -- while burning if possible. If neither of those work replace the pressure regulator. Most people will initially say replace the regulator but they do not go bad as often as many think; a regulator is only a open space that limits him much gas can travel through at any time.

When my compressor reaches 120psi it shuts off but air comes out of the regulator. I replaced the regulator and it is still leaking air when it stops. When it reaches 90psi the pump starts again. It does...


The air is coming out of the pressure switch but the problem is the tank check valve. The tank check valve is on the tank where the large line from the pump feeds into the tank. There is also a smaller line, either plastic or copper, from the check valve to the pressure switch. When the pump shuts off the check valve is supposed to close and the pressure switch opens a valve that lets the head pressure bleed off through the small line. This lets the motor start the next time without any pressure in the head. If the check valve isn't closing properly the air will leak out as you describe.

2005 cavalier fuel pressure regulator


I doubt it is coming from the pressure regulator. The regulator should have a vac hose going to the manifold that would **** the gas into the engine and run very rich.
The short answer is YES that is very bad, but I wonder where the raw fuel is coming from.

My psi is 150 and the tank turns off but my regulator pressure is at 0, this is a brand new tank and never been used before.


Hi scooterb88...
Sounds like your pressure regulator needs adjustment...
Turn the knob on the pressure regulator clockwise and you should start hearing air coming out of your hose...Once air is coming out, remove your hose and keep turning the regulator till you get to your desired working pressure normally around 90 psi...leave your pressure regulator at that setting and it will stay at that setting.

Will not allow me to regulate air. compressor kicks on and builds to max pressure.


All air compressors build pressure in the tank(s) to their maximum allowed by the pressure switch. The regulator only controls the pressure of the air available at the outlet. That's why they have two pressure guages, one for tank pressure and one for outlet pressure. If you cannot control the air pressure at the outlet then you have a defective/broken regulator. Dewalt does not make the regulator as a seperate part for their air compressors, you have to buy the entire manifold which includes a regulator to fix this problem.

Overreving with no power and excessive gas consumption air filter cleaned map sensor replaced fuel pump and filter


usually caused by busted diaphram in fuel pressure regulator allowing fuel to be drawn thru regulator directly to intake manifold. Pull vacuum line off regulator, plug line with golf tee, start car and watch to see if gas comes out of regulator. If yes, turn off car, replace regulator. The regulator sits near the fuel rail on the top of the engine as shown below. I will paste replacement instructions below from autozone.com in case you need to replace the regulator. Please let me know if you have any questions.

I need a diagram to show how to hook up pressure regulator


This is my advice if you dont already have a regulator. Go to menards or lowes andlook for a regulator kit. They usually come with everything you will need to put a good one on your compressor. Instructions will come with it along with the threaded pipe to hook it up with. I myself just got a pressure regulator kit from Theisenes.
I started by removing my air hose from the tank, next youll need to attach the regulator to the tank where you removed the hose, your kit should have prethreaded
metal air pipe to go from the tank to the regulator (use thread tape or joint sealer to prevent leaks ) Now use your sealer to seal airhose to the other end of the regulator the airoutlet side. Turn it on abd check for leaks and see if you can set your pressure regulator to a set pressure If it holds without leaking you did a great job GOOD LUCK!!!!! SignedTaz

Air compressor pressure not regulating


Usually you cannot adjust the cut out pressure of the tank/motor itself, this is why they have regulators, which regulates the pressure flowing down the air lines (regulators like these dont regulate actual tank pressure cutout). To regulate air flow using the regulator knob, you actually have to have air flowing through the hose while you make the regulator/pressure adjustments as regulators regulate pressure DOWNSTREAM from the actual regulator itself.. so air flowing through is a must. Attach an air blower or something similar and let air start flowing through the hose. Now turn your regulator knob in the "-" direction to decrease regulated pressure. It is best to bring pressure all the way down to "0" first, then open the regulator up (by turning to the "+" side) and pressure will rise until you get to the desired pressure needed for the air tool in use. The tank pressure will still be between 80-125 PSI as the motor regulates and keeps the pressure in the tank between these values automatically, but your line/hose air flow pressure will remain at the regulated pressure (say 40 PSI or whatever you set using the regulator knob).

Hope that helps and makes sense.

No air pressure at the hose


It sounds like you have trouble with your pressure regulator. Make sure that the knob for the regulator is turned clockwise to increase pressure. If this doesn't work, you may need to replace the regulator.

Safe second?


"The second stage regulator takes the manageable pressure coming from the 1st stage through the hose and delivers it to your mouthpiece in a way that is comfortable to breathe. Where the 1st stage is only concerned with letting air flow into the hose the 2nd stage has more complex machinery which handles both inhaling and exhaling through the same mouthpiece. Like the first stage the 2nd stage scuba regulator uses a diaphragm or piston to open a valve. Breathing in from the mouthpiece reduces the air pressure inside the chamber, water pressure pushes the diaphragm in, which opens the intake valve. When you stop inhaling the pressure in the chamber balances and the valve closes. The result is an air delivery system which supplies air only when you are inhaling and does not leak air constantly through the mouthpiece. A well balanced and well-maintained scuba regulator does its job so well that breathing feels natural and effortless despite the all mechanics involved. The second stage scuba regulator also has a purge or exhaust valve, which lets your exhaled air out of the chamber, but doesn't let water in. When you exhale into the second stage scuba regulator the pressure inside the chamber becomes greater than the ambient pressure. The exhaust valve is a simple one-way valve which lets this air escape. The second stage scuba regulator also has a purge or exhaust valve, which lets your exhaled air out of the chamber, but doesn't let water in. When you exhale into the second stage scuba regulator the pressure inside the chamber becomes greater than the ambient pressure. The exhaust valve is a simple one-way valve which lets this air escape. A second stage scuba regulator also has an ""emergency"" or ""purge"" button which forces the intake valve to open. When the purge button is pressed air will flow continuously into the chamber and escape either through the mouthpiece or the aforementioned exhaust valve"
