I SEEM TO BE HAVING A PROBLEM WITH MY TANK PRESSURE. MY TANK PRESSURE SITS AT ABOUT 80 PSI AND THE REGULATED PRESSURE SITS AT ABOUT 70 PSI,IT DOES NOT GO ANY HIGHER, IS THIS NORMAL AND IF NOT WHAT DO I LOOK FOR TO GET BETTER PRESSURE. WHEN THE COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING IT NEVER KICKS OUT, IT JUST KEEPS RUNNING AND WHEN IN USE IT LOSSES PRESSURE QUICKLY.

The C6110 is an oil free air compressor and has a piston ring that needs to be replace as part of regular service.
When the piston ring is worn out it will just keep pumping but it will not go over 80 psi or so because to much ir is passing by the ring.

Here is a parts diagram:

It sounds like the piston ring DAC-308 needs to be replaced. You can also replace the complete top end.
This is a pretty easy repair and can be done in less that 1 hour.

How do I increase the pressure on my Flotec FP711OT-08. It is low 40s psi, can I move it up to 50 psi or high 50 psi? Water pressure throughout the house is low.


There may be a pressure setting on your outfit but My feeling is -- your problem will be low pressure on your water line. Most pressure settings is to keep from having too much pressure on what your running. For instance our city water pressure is 70 lbs but in order to keep my furnace boiler system at 16 lbs I have to install a pressure reducer.

The tank pressure is 150 Psi but the regulated pressure is 0. I have never used this compressor.


150 lbs is the amount of pressure in the tank. When you connect a nail gun for instance you cannot nail everything at 150 lbs of pressure, it will blast through. The regulated pressure is at zero because you have the ability to regulate it by turn the know under or beside it to increase the output pressure to your desired amount. I was building a shelf last week and set my regulated to 80lbs with a brad and it blew through the panel and stuck in the floor. After you get to know your nail gun you will be able to regulate it between 60 and 80 depending on the type of wood. Panel - 50 lbs, Oak, 90 lbs, etc. Pleas remember to rate this solution high if it was helpful and explained it to your satisfaction.

Worked fine previously. Now when turned on the tank pressure comes up normally . However, the regulated pressure gauge reads zero and there is no airflow.


What happens when you twist the regulated pressure knob, as you would to increase the regulated pressure? Does the knob turn? Does it turn until it stops, but still reads zero? If so, it sounds like the regulator pressure spring is broken. That's inside the regulator, and you will probably have to replace the regulator.

70-80 PSI cold. It will increase as you drive and also with the load you put onto them.

While driving the oil pressure gauge sits between 60 and 65 psi but when i get on the gas it shoots up to 80 psi. When idling it sits on 40 psi.


When the engine is idling, the oil pressure is reduced. At fast idle (such as highway speed) it in increases. This is considered normal. If it goes higher than 80 or lower than 40...have it checked out.

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.

Oil pressure gauge reads 80 psi with engine off and pegs running


That is probably a defective oil pressure gauge or a broken oil pressure sender, it reads 80 psi just because that is the maximum value allowed.

Pressure can be verified by reading it with a gauge tool.
If you really have pressure over 70 psi when engine is running then start replacing the oil filter, and check that the oil lines from pump are not obstructed, if there is nothing in there then replace oil pump.

If instead the gauge reads 80 with engine off, that is a defective pressure gauge.
