Bill where can I buy a unloader valve. Everything was working fine ,I had a couple air leaks including the odd tee that goes in the tank . so I was tightening up the leaks and noticed the nut on the unloader valve I could just turn by my fingers so I was going to tighten it up. little did I know it was designed that way. So that is when I broke the unloader valve, and that is why I need a new one. Can you help me PLEASE? Thank You Charles Wallace

Buy a compressor unloader valve

Charles, I've moved your question to the unloader valve forum.

Without knowing the make of your pressure switch, or the make or model of the air compressor, I can only answer with generalities.

If you Google "air compressor unloader valve" as I just did, you will find a host of suppliers. If you cannot recognize yours, then you'll want to change the search to "unloader valve for your make and model of pressure switch". Of course, you would insert the actual make and model of your pressure switch. You can often find the make and model of the pressure switch inside the cover. If you pull the cover, be careful. If the compressor is plugged in, the wires inside the switch will be live.
