Push or Pull on Regulator Knob
by: Bill

Gary, often regulator knobs are "locked" to help prevent too easy pressure adjustment.

Try pulling out or pushing in on the regulator knob to see if that will allow you, then, to turn the adjustment knob.

If that doesn't work, then I would suspect a failed regulator, and given that the air compressor is new, it were mine, I'd take it back and ask for another one.
