Question: Replacement Part
I see the part I need is discontinued/no longer available. Is there a universal or different part I can use to replace the pressure reducer regulator 079027005042? Thanks
Reply: Replacement Part
When the manufacture stopped supplying the 079027005042 Pressure Reducer Regulator, they did not replace it with a new part. You may want to take it to a local compressor repair facility in your area to see if the can match a part up for you.

Hello My compressor is less than a yr old, not heavily used and is already DEAD in the water. I replaced the pressure switch thinking it was the culprit but it will still not turn on. Could it be caused by the capacitor? Not sure where to look from here.......

Did you check your 079027005004 Thermal Protector.They some times go bad and would cause the compressor to not start at all. A bad starter capacitor would normally not allow the compressor to start when air is in the tank and would cause the compressor to humand kick the breaker off.Hope that helps.Good luck.

Question: Ridgid OL50145 Air Compressor
I need the 2 vaines in the compressor head. How do I get these parts?
Reply: Ridgid OL50145 Air Compressor
For this compressor the manufacture does not supply just the reed valves as a replacement part. You have to order part number 079027005703 pump rebuild kit. They are included in the kit. Unless you can find them at a local compressor service center.
Hope this helps,
Question: Rigid Compressor Regulator
I have a leak at the pressure regulator knob on a Ridgid mini wheel barrow compressor OL50145MW. Do I have to replace the entire regulator and manifold or is there an O ring that can be replaced at the knob? The diagram shows what looks like an O ring but comes up as a label in the parts listing.

There are no separate parts available for the regulator. It will need to be ordered as an assembly. Item #52 is a decal. The picture we have linked to it is of the wrong decal. That will be fixed shortly.
The regulator is part #079027005042 and is available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com.
I hope this helps with your repair!

This air compressor doesn't keep up with a framing nailer or a brad nailer. This compressor has not run correctly from the day that I bought it. The breaker trips after about 10 seconds.
