DeWalt D155146 Type 2 regulator kit

The kit comes with a spring does anyone know exactly where that spring goes or in what order do the replacement parts fit under the knob?

Happy to post this for you, Jeff.

If you haven't taken the old one apart, then do so, noting carefully the order of parts.

If you have, then I hope someone out there has the same regulator to be able to help you.

Cheers,

Bill

How to adjust the pressure switch so it shuts off at a lower pressure.

Tom, there are two adjustable nuts inside a typical pressure switch. One to adjust cut in and the other for cut out. I don't recommend you touch either.

What is the reason you feel you need to turn down the cut out pressure setting on your air compressor, please? If the air pressure getting to your air tool or air using application is too high, install a regulator in the line.

If the problem is that the compressor is no longer reaching the normal cut out level and the compressor will not stop, then lowering the cut out pressure will only "band aid" the problem for a while, and then it will return. If this is the scenario, see the Troubleshooting section on the site map page, and follow the links to "will not build pressure".

Cheers,

Bill

I cannot tell from your post if your air compressor is direct drive or belt drive.

If it is belt drive, then it sounds to me like something in the drive has jammed, and the belt is sliding through a none-rotating sheave, and friction may be heating the belt to the burning point.

I make weird sounds sometime. :-)

That doesn't mean that mine are the same as the one your air compressor is making, since I cannot hear it.

Can you provide more information on your compressor ~ model, HP, and more detail about the sounds?

Cheers,

Bill
