Dewalt 55146 fully pressurized but no air comes out
by Lloyd Charlier
Went to use my Dewalt compressor the other day - turned it on, pressurized the tank and all looked good (both gauges indicated a fully charged tank). When I went to actually use it however to fill some tires, nothing - there appeared to be no air in the lines. Suspecting a bad tire pressure attachment, I replaced with another attachment - same result. Trying to eliminate the hose as the culprit, I then plugged numerous different attachments directly into the front panel of the compressor - still no air! When I released the drain valve on the tank however, it became immediately obvious that the tank was indeed fully pressurized - WHOOSH! How can the tank be fully pressurized but no air comes out of either front panel coupling?
