Takes Regulator up to 5 seconds to return to set pressure.

When using a framing nailer it takes up to five seconds for the regulator to return to the 100 pound pressure setting I use after each nail is driven. The pressure will drop to around 60 pounds and then slowly return to the 100 pound setting. What could be the problem.
The air line charge should recover almost instantly if you are driving in one nail and stopping.
What is the pressure reading on the tank gauge before and after you drive a nail and while the regulator gauge drops to 60 PSI and takes that long to rebuild?

Not happy - can't seem to get the parts to repair compressor?
I've had my comp. at ser.center since nov. 9th 2012 and they can't seem to get the parts to repair. Is this a problem
mine worked o.k for a while then wouldn't build to pressure specified and ran till i shut it off Seemed to be leaking air around the head. I've been without it for almost 2 months and wonder what is the problem. Tech says he can't get parts. I wouldn't recommend this comp.
C.Z., your complaint is noted, and I'm sure other folks will appreciate hearing about your Cap 2000 compressor problem.
I did an internet search and found sources for parts for your compressor so, depending on what the service shop found, they may be able to buy parts for you.
The issue always boils down to money. The service shop cannot fix air compressors without making a profit to cover costs and stay in business. Parts for all compressors are expensive. If they cannot get a discount from a parts supplier for parts for your Cap 2000 compressor, then they have to mark the price up higher than you would pay for it if you bought the same parts elsewhere, to earn their profit.
A Cap 2000 compressor new would cost - what - about $200. You can buy used on line for $100 or so.
If the shop has to charge you $150.00 to fix your compressor, it's a lose lose for them and you.
That may be the problem.
