No Air pressure at tools, air in tank?
Bill, I have a Porter Cable 6 gal pancake compressor about 2 years old. Runs great builds up pressure 150 lbs on the tank side but the regulated guage reads 0. I can bleed the air pressure off
so it does have pressure I just can't use any tools the air stays in the tank.
Hi Ed. Welcome to the club. I'm confused all the time.
However, as to your Porter Cable air compressor, I think you may have one of those air regulators that doubles as a valve.
If so, when you dial the downstream pressure setting to zero PSI, you have actually shut off the flow of air to the discharge air coupling.
Turn the knob on your regulator until the regulator gauge says 50 PSI, or whatever operating pressure your air tool says it needs, and try again.
Any change? A comment here will help me follow the thread.
