I’ve followed the instructions to set the desired PSI for my bike tire, when I press the Run/Pause button – it only runs about 3 seconds then shuts off – never reaching the target PSI.

My current PSI is 12 and desired set at 50.

I have to keep resetting and press the Run button, only gaining about 3 psi with each repeated cycle.

The unit is 10 months old and hardly used. Thanks

So, you’ve seen the thing work in the previous ten months?

Have you tried it with the other power source?

What happens if you leave the tire / hose connection disconnected? Does it keep pumping, or quit that way as well?

I take it you got no help from Kobalt/Lowe’s or wherever you bought it?

Another problem with a Kobalt #0146781 DUAL POWER INFLATOR
by: Ben

Yesterday, I tried to use my Kobalt inflator, but the “decrease PSI” digital setting no longer works.

Symptoms: I no longer can lower the desired PSI pressure I want. I press the lower rubber button, but the indicated desired PSI reading stays the same. I can raise the desired PSI pressure okay. Also, the blue LED light does not seem to be as bright as before.

Can someone help me? I’ve had this for about 5 years and it has worked really well. Thanks, Ben

This really should have it’s own thread, but since the original questioner hasn’t come back with any response on their question, here goes on yours.

From general experience, I can say there’s a good chance the control panel is mostly glued together.

So, try to open the thing up and see if that’s the case. That’s one thing that can cause buttons not to work, and lamps to look dim.

The other thing is the power supply going bad. Switching to the other power source may make a difference. Have you tried that? Any difference?

Also, if you can get a pic or two of the thing, we may be able to suggest more things to check – as right now, we don’t really know what’s in it.

Let us know. Good luck.
