I don't like them, they are unnecessary in terms of what they are supposed to do, and when they fail, which seems to be fairly frequently, getting parts or repair is quite expensive.

Better to remove the whole digital setup, install a mini-regulator in the line to the discharge coupler so you can control the pressure to the air tools, and run the power supply to directly to the pressure switch, and from that, to the motor, to control the ON/OFF of the compressor.

Won't look great when you're done, but it will work a whole lot better, IMHO.

It probably won't matter, but have you tried it on another power source than whichever you were using?

I hope your warranty isn't expired.
