That being said, I went out and picked this model up today at Lowe's for $159. Exactly as advertised and exactly what I need.
However, there have been some serious reviews from serious users cautioning of the ABSOLUTE NECESSITY of BREAKING-IN your compressor BEFORE USING IT!! Somehow, if you don't break it in properly beforehand, you may be literally wrecking your expensive hardware before you even get to use it.
EXCEPT THAT THE OWNERS MANUAL THAT CAME WITH MY MODEL C2002 (Type 5 - I found this in very fine print on the labels on the back of the tank) SAID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ABOUT "BREAKING-IN." So I did what some reviewers did and looked for an online manual which can be found at this link: [...]
Bottom line is that breaking-in your compressor is MANDADORY, but it's also a cinch.
Here's the exact wording from the online Porter-Cable manual:
Risk of Unsafe Operation. Serious damage may result if the
following break-in instructions are not closely followed.
This procedure is required before the air compressor is put into service and when
the check valve or a complete compressor pump has been replaced.
1. Make sure the On/Off switch is in the "Off" position.
2. Plug the power cord into the correct branch circuit receptacle. (Refer to Voltage
and Circuit Protection paragraph in the Installation section of this manual.)
3. Open the drain valve (counter-clockwise) fully to permit air to escape and prevent
air pressure build up in the air tank during the break-in period.
MY NOTE: this is sort of counter-intuitive as you want the valve to screw UP
toward the tank - giving the appearance of being closed when it's actually open.
You will quickly realize whether you're right or not because you WILL hear the
air blowing out the valve. No blowing air?? Turn the screw the other way.
4. Move the On/Off switch to "On" position. The compressor will start.
5. Run the compressor for 15 minutes. Make sure the drain valve is open and
there is minimal air pressure build-up in tank.
6. After 15 minutes, close the drain valve by turning clockwise. The air receiver
will fill to "cut-out" pressure and the motor will stop.
The compressor is now ready for use.
Bottom line: open the drain valve to prevent pressure from building up.
When you turn on the compressor, it will blow air out the valve.
Run for 15 min. Basically a "dry run." No pressure.
After 15 min, screw the valve the other way to close it and let
pressure build up until it shuts off.
You're all set.
Thanks to all the guys that took the time to warn me ahead of time.
I'm grateful and hope this post will remove the boogieman of breaking-in
your new compressor.
I did a lot of researched on air compressors trying to make the right decision before purchasing this compressor, but felt I obviously must have missed something. But not believing it was the compressor, I finally found on the internet, doityourself.com, where others have been having this problem since 2006. The problem is with the cheap Chinese air chuck that is shipped with the Accessory Kit that comes with the compressor. It is too shallow to depress the air valve stem far enough to let air into the tire. It will let it out, so I assumed it should let it in. But I found out that is not how valve stems work. The stem has to be depressed enough further to allow air in.
The fix was to go to Walmart and purchase a Campbell Hausfeld Dual Foot Chuck MP3231, which Amazon probably also sells, but I wanted it in a hurry to see if this would fix my problem, and it did. The moral of the story is if you are going to use the compressor to inflate tires, be sure to get a commercial grade Chuck along with the compressor. As far as I know, everything with the compressor worked fine and I would have given it a 5 as a tool to inflate tires, but sending it with a cheap chuck that doesn't work, only merits a 4.
