Kobalt Air Compressor Regulator Leak Down
With the compressor full at 150 PSI, and the tool regulator is set to anything below 150 PSI, there is blow by.
Example: My Kobalt 90degree Air Grinder uses 90 PSI. With the regulator on the compressor set to 90 PSI, I get a continuous leak down of pressure from the main tank until the compressor's pressure switch kicks off and the compressor turns back on. This equates to a loop of non-stop compressor operation, even when there isn't a hose hooked to it.
If the compressor is left off, the tank's pressure will leak down to whatever pressure the tool regulator is set for. 90psi, 45psi, 120psi have all been tested with the same results.
I am used to a tool regulator controlling the pressure to the tool and not bleeding the tank down to said pressure.
Did I get a dud compressor or is this how Kobalt A/C's work?URL
