Noe, before I try to help you figure out what is wrong with your regulator, how about a bit more info? As a comment here, can you please tell us what about your regulator isn't working properly? As part of that, please tell us what the pressure reading is on the tank gauge, and on the regulator gauge as you try to adjust it.

Cheers,

Bill

Now, this is an odd one and it doesn't make much sense.

Are you saying that your compressor has two tanks, each with a separate air gauge, and one of the two air gauges registers zero PSI while the other tank gauge shows normal pressure?

Or, does your compressor have two gauges only, one for tank pressure, and one showing the regulator setting pressure, and one of them is showing zero PSI? If this is correct, which is showing pressure and which is showing zero?

Please respond as a comment so I can follow the thread.

Cheers,

Bill

Compressor labors and blows breaker

by JR

I have a husky up right 110v compressor and when I turn it on it labors and blows breaker. I just replaced the switch and it worked fine one time and went bake to same problem.

I don't know what switch you replaced, though, based on my read of the compressor issue, I'd look first at the UNLOADER VALVE to make sure it was working properly, and if it was, I would look to the start capacitor, assuming you have clean power to the plug, and no extension cord.

Oil-less lubrication question?

by Adam
(Tennessee)

I have a Husky 32gal oil-less compressor and I was wondering if I can lubricate the piston to prolong the life of the plastic ring and cylinder. It came from the factory with some form of lubrication in the cylinder, but after years of use I know it must need some new "Slick Stuff."

This is a Great website, by the way. Thanks for all the info!

Adam, your kind comments are welcome, thank you!

Reference adding a lubricant to a non-lubed compressor... hmmmm.... I wouldn't if it were my oil free air compressor. These compressors are designed to run lube free, and adding lubrication, even if it's in just one area, may create more problems.

But, I really don't know the condition of your piston / seals. Maybe they are desperate for lube???

Why not pop over to the Campbell Hausfeld web site, since, I believe, they make the Husky product for Home Depot. The actually currently have an oil-less compressor repair manual for sale on their site, and equally importantl, they have contact info so that you can get an answer from the manufacturer.
