Looking for a check valve for a IRF412-2 Devilbiss compressor.

Looking for a CHECK VALVE PN A19717 for a model IRF412-2 Devilbiss Compressor. All sources so far indicate No Longer Available with no solution to the problem. Will build normal pressure - but when it shuts off, will bleed back thru automatic UNLOAD valve in electric control unit and quickly empty the tank in 2 or 3 minutes. Control is new - problem existed with old control.

Additional info - cleaning old check valve fixed it!
by: Bill

After posting problem, I spent further time reading earlier postings from others on the site - thus discovered the possibility of cleaning the valve. I removed and generally cleaned the valve. The internal part, which provides the shutoff feature when tank is pressurized, was stuck in the open position, but not very tightly. When I had it moving freely, I replaced the check valve on the tank - right now it is working properly.
