Question: Leaking Compressor

1205100

Directly behind the valve that controls the pressure going to the hose (has red cap), there is an aluminum nut. Air is leaking between the valve housing and that nut. How do I fix it?

Hi,
Drain your air and remove the cap screw.You should see a brass stem that sits in the nut .Remove it clean it and put a little grease on it .Reinstall it and that should stop the air leak.If not then replace the regulator.Hope that helps.Good luck.

Question: Red Knob

baker

Is the red knob on the part still plastic or is it now metal? Thanks

Hi baker,
They are still plastic.The issues with these regulators from my understanding was with the threaded shaft and threaded housing that the regulator knob went into. The threads in the housing were rather poor causing them to strip out. I believe this problem has been fixed. Hope this helps.Good luck.

Is this a straight forward replacement part, do you just screw it on so to speak? My compressor is a CAP60PB-OF

Hi foster,
Yes it is .If all that is wrong is that the knob won't work you can take the front of the new regulator and screw it on the old regulator.They had a lot of problems with the red knob stripping out on those compressors.Hope that helps.good luck.

Hi johnborden,
They use a green loctite on the joints and you will most likely have to carefully heat it up to soften the bond.Hope that helps.good luck.
