Bad Regulator, had blown copper line,
Ordered a new copper line from ereplacementparts.com and found that it had blown from the regulator not working properly. I then ordered a new regulator and replaced it. The only issue that I had was that the copper line did not have new compression fittings, so I had to get them removed professionally from the old line. Note: the fittings are not common sizes. Only everything was repaired/replaced the compressor worked better than new! Beats buying a new Ridgid for $500.

Repair Difficulty:
Medium
Time Spent Repairing:
30-60 minutes
Tools Used:
Wrench Set, Adjustable Wrench, Hex wrenches, gasket seal
Air flow to outlet hose went low and would then build back up. Would not keep pressure.
1) Drain all air and remove mounting plate. 4 hex bolts on frame to and 2 small hex bolts holding the manifold and regulator assembly.
2) Remove - unscrew 2 feed air lines from manifold. ( mark air flow direction with marker)
3) Unscrew manifolds from old Regulator. ( take note of air flow direction of regulator)
Note: may help to gently hold regulator in vise to provide support. You can see inside regulator to help determine air direction. Mark it.
4) New Regulator ( Check that plastic base is snug on new regulator or it will leak).
5) Screw in both manifolds to new regulator. ( Little gasket seal helps.) Make sure outlet holes are aligned as before.
6) Reattach Inlet and outlet hoses to manifolds. Make sure you do not reverse sides.
7) Reattach manifold/regulator assembly to mounting plate. ( 2 small hex bolts)
8) Reattach mounting plate to frame. ( 4 hex bolts)

Question: Air Leak

Reslh

Air leaking out of small weep hole in regulator valve. This is a continuous leak which prevents compressor from ever reaching shut off pressure. Is this the regulater or something else?
Question: Ridgid OL50135W Low Output

1362246

The pressure on my tanks fill right up to 125lb fine. But the output gauge registers very low. When i blow out air from the hose it only goes for a few seconds then is out of air. I stop and the output gauge goes up to a few pounds again.
Do i need a REGULATOR or something else?
WJA
Hello 1362246,

It does sound like to me that the part number, 17468 Regulator may have a problem with it. If you try a new one I think your problem should be taken care of.

Question: Ridgid Air Compressor

1360052

air compressor works fine without any thing hook up......it builds up to 125 shuts off drain air tank starts back up at 80 psi....heres the problem when i insert hose to fitting, pressure drops all the way down to zero and gradually rises to 100. and if i use hose air doesnt last long and wont restart till no air left ... any idea whats wrong
Question: Regulator On Ridgid OL50135

1278933

I removed the regulator on this air compressor and found a white powder substance inside.
Any idea what this is what causes it or how to prevent if it is a problem.
Question: Regulator Is Hissing

1264711

The regulator on my compressor is hissing. Can this indicate that it has con bad?
I took the regulator apart and I have 50% figured out how it works. There is one plug seal about 5/16" round at the very bottom of the regulator housing. When the plug shrinks or tears, the hollow stem attached to the diaphragm bleeds air that hisses out from a hole under the knob skirt. I made a shim out of 1/16" sheet rubber and put it under that plug. Which stops the hissing but the regulator no longer limits output air pressure. I am going to either use an external regulator or go back in one more time and fabricate two new seals , since I have already wasted 2 hours on that ticky tacky device.
Question: Replacing Rigid Regulator 17468

166729

Do you have instructions on how to replace the regulator (17468) on a Rigid compressor OL50135
Question: Regulator

dwilson

my compressor airs up fine but when it reaches the set pressure air starts coming from the regulator at a little hole. new regulator.
WJA
There should not be any air coming from the regulator, if there is it is probably time to replace it. There is one part on the compressor that when it gets to the desired pressure you will hear air coming out of and that is the safety valve 17378 I hope this will help.
WJA
The new regulator has an arrow on the bottom, and arrow should be pointing towards the tank regulator air gauge. I bought one used recently that had a new regulator but owner unable to get it to work, air coming out of the little hole on the neck of the regulator, it was installed backwards, arrow points in the direction of air flow towards the regulator gauge. As soon as I took apart & resealed all of it, worked perfectly.
