Question: Full Tank, Nothing Past Regulato...
I suspect the regulator valve 2408008RN, but here goes. Tank builds full pressure, regulator valve hisses when knob nearly completely backed out. Regulator pressure gauge shows zero. No pressure past regulator valve. Checked connectors and hose for obstructions, there are none.

I think your are correct in your thought regarding a defective 2408008RNX Regulator. Once you replace it your compressor problems should be a thing of the past.
Question: Senco Pc1010 2E21025TB
So, i just installed a new pressure switch and the compressor will not shut off automatically. when i shut down the compressor via the on/off switch air leaks out of the conection between the pressure unit and unloading tube set (it looks to be some type on needle valve). Does the pressure valve need to be adjusted? Do i have a problem with another part that is causing the problem? Thanks for the help.
Question: PC 1010
PC 1010 won't build pressure over 30 lbs keeps running and gets very hot

Remove the 3B11DC02A Exhaust Valve Assembly and you should see a broken reed valve or blown head gasket and cylinder ring.Hope that helps.Good luck.
Question: Senco PC0967 Repair
I have compressor that will run at first and charge to full pressure. As the pressure is reduced and the motor runs again it runs at a very low speed and trips the circuit breaker. Bypassed the pressure switch and it did not fix the problem. Ideas?

You might try replacing your 2414033A check valve. It could be causing your problems.
Question: Senco PC1010
What is the trick to rebuilding the pressure switch? It had a leak around the gasket so I took it apart and now it does not want to go back together.

This is the first time I've had a question on rebuilding the 2E21025TB pressure switch, since there are no internal parts available for it most people order a complete switch assembly.
Good luck, I hope you can repair it,
Question: Unloading Valve
Where the Unloading Tube Set connects to the Pressure Regulator is what I believe is the Unloading Valve. It is not shown in the diagram or parts list. Is it available or does it come with the Pressure Regulator?
Reply: Unloading Valve
If I'm not mistaken, I think the item your looking for is the part number, 2414033A check valve. I hope I'm correct.
Question: No Pressure
I love my 1010 and it just stopped building pressure the motor runs and air goes into the tank but after about 2 pounds it stops building could this be a faulty check valve or do I need a new piston assembly?
Reply: No Pressure
Remove the cylinder head and check your reed valve and piston ring .If any of these are worn or damaged you will need to replace 3B11DC02A Exhaust Valve Assembly,3201068
Cylinder and 3B34DC02 Rod Assembly.The reason being is that on small oil less compressors these are high ware areas and by replacing all of this you do a clean repair on the pump..Before you remove the cylinder you could inspect the check valve but bad check valves will normally allow more pressure to build up then 2 pounds.Hope that helps.Good luck.
Question: Pressure Switch
1) air compressor hits the high pressure cut - out(approx 115 psi) and the motor stops air is released through the pressure switch. When the pressure falls to 80 psi the motor starts and builds pressure agin until it reaches the cut-out. This process repeats endlessly.
2) When the operating switch is turned to the off position, the motor turns off and all pressure in the tank is released through the pressure switch.

It sounds like you have a small leak somewhere. The compressor is building up to full pressure, then it leaks off to minimum pressure and restarts. How about a leaking check valve?
