Fairly new air compressor model HL540200, 4 gal. Not firing nails consistently.


It will fire 2 or 3 nails and then stops, once it sits for about a minute it comes back, then repeats??

Resolved: An Air block?

It must have been an air block, it has been corrected. Thanks for the suggestions. Bruce

Are you saying you have to wait for the compressor to build tank pressure? Or does the pressure after the regulator drop while the tank still has air?

What nailer are you using?

Bruce, I'm not getting it.

When you say "It will fire 2 or 3 nails and then stops,", are you saying that the air pressure to the nail gun falls so low that it won't cycle the nail gun?

If so, see the troubleshooting page about No Air Out Of Hose for things to check.
