Maximum output pressure is significantly lower than max. tank pressure.
(Hinchinbrooke, QC, Canada)
I just received a second-hand Campbell-Hausfeld WL650102AV air compressor that needs some accessories and a bit of servicing. But before I put too much money into it, there is one issue I cannot figure out.
The compressor is rated at max. 125 psi. I can get the tank to fill up to just under a 120 psi on the tank gauge (good enough for me) but I cannot reach more than 60 psi on the regulator gauge, no matter how much I turn the dial to max.
I can turn it down from 60-0 psi, but not past 60.
I switched the gauges around, thinking that the output gauge is broken, but I get the same result.
I have taken the Regulator apart to see if anything was obviously broken. I ended up just cleaning it and putting it back together. There seems to be no air leaks, anywhere.
Do I have a malfunctioning regulator? Is there some dirt somewhere between the tank and regulator or is there something else wrong?
I am wondering if you could help?
Thank you in advance for your troubles!
