Regulator check ball
(Lake Villa. Illinois)
I have a powermate compressor model number CL0502710,I had the regulator knob come off while using the compressor. I replaced the entire regulator internal components (the spring. valve etc) the kit came with a ball.
When the ball is installed the pressure stays in the tank and does not go to the hose. When i take the ball out it works fine, Is this supposed to be the case? Is the ball in the kit sometimes used or always supposed to be used?
Thank You for your time.
