air tank check valve leak
by: Charlie D.

Where the pressure switch unloader and compressor discharge lines connect to the air tank fitting, there is a check ball located in the bottom of that fitting.

Take the fitting out and clean the check ball and seat. If it still leaks, buy a new fitting. WW Grainger, Tractor supply, northern tool all carry the fitting but it may have to be modified to work with your compressor.

It's difficult to be sure what the problem is Jean-Pierre, it would likely help if you read this troubleshooting page about leaking unloader valves.
