An air compressor such as the one that you borrowed is very useful for airing-up tires, connecting a nailer for wood working projects and spray painting with a cup gun. All that you need do is plug it in to a 110v outlet and it will fill with air to capacity. To access the air you will need to plug an air hose into a quick coupler and adjust the air pressure with the knob showing two direction arrow. Unless your friend has included an air assisted water blasting wand that would also connect to a water supply, I do not think that it would be useful for cleaning. I have used a compressor such as this with an air nozzle or air blasting the air conditioner condenser fins and the drain to the evaporator inside the house. It will also be really great for cleaning the mower or any outdoor tool that accumulates oily dust (air filters). With a small sand blasting attachment you could remove old paint from the patio furniture or any wood or metal surface needing a good blasting to make it look like new. Sand blasting would not be practical for house/ deck/ fence because it would take too long and use too much sand; then there would be the sand cleanup. Have fun with the compressor and clean-up projects.

My Porter Cable pancake outlet regulator doesn't seem to work.

If your quick coupler is not jammed up, (remove & test) and assuming you are pulling the regulator knob out to adjust the pressure and it is not stripped, you will need a new manifold kit.
There are about 6 versions of this unit so you will need model and type to get the correct part. There are no individual regulator parts available for this unit.

Porter cable 135 psi 6 Gal model no. d27420 (homedepot) motor fried ! Can't find replacement, and if i do is it worth fixing? Looks like parts cost as much as compressor

These units are disposable so if the motor is gone, it is garbage. I would try a power tool repair center to see if they have any used motors to repair your unit. Save the tank and use it as a slave unit for a new compressor. This way you will have more volume and the compressor will run less overall making the new unit last longer. If you burnt the motor out on this one, consider buying a larger unit the next time. Hope this helps.

I have a porter cable 6 gal pancake 135 psi compressor. How can I change the cut off and cut on pressure. I've been trying to add air to my car tires and it will not fill the tire all the way up. I was...

where the plug in goes into the pressure switch you can take the cap off and you will see the electrical points and on the inside of the plastic cap it will you show you the two screws to adjust there. one screw will be to raise or lower the min and max pressure equally and the other is to adjust the differential between them. But make sure not to exceed recommended pressure of the compressor or you will blow safety valves, the safety valve will say what pressure it will go off at

Trouble building pressure

I would check the reed valves in the pump. One of them may be broken.
