kobalt model 0200382

I have a KOBALT 3 gal air compressor model #0200382 (serial # 0057655) and the threads on the air regulator knob have broken away in some spots so the pressure can not be adjusted beyond 15#.

The part number from the owners manual is WCFATY.01.05

I doubt the compressor has more than 30 hours use.

None of the websites (mastertoolrepair; Sears or others) don't list the model. Any ideas? Thanks for any information.

0300841 knob?
by: Doug in s.d.ca

You may have a chance. Your model is listed on parts sites, so you have a shot at finding what you need.

Good luck.

Also have a failed air pressure regulator knob. Mine probably doesn't have 2 hours of use.. I guess you get what you pay for. Model 0300841 here....

bit of a longshot...

Does your manifold look anything like this?:


Otherwise, as mentioned elsewhere, probably the best thing to do is roll your own plumbing with conventional parts. Might not look great, but it'll work if done right.

Regulator knob
by: Mark

I also have a failed regulator knob as the plastic threads have stripped on this model. The regulator is made into the manifold. No way to replace unless the entire manifold gets replaced. I just need a new knob. Will see if I can find my parts book

What Bill said.

But it looks like it may be unconventional. Did you try the number in the manual for parts?

Kobalt model 0200382 regulator
by: Bill

BB, I suspect if you pull the cover off you will find that almost any general purpose mini-compressed air regulator will suit.

Make sure you empty the tank with the power off before you disassemble the piping to remove the existing regulator.

Take that one with you to the store to find a comparably sized model.
