    Hi guys, I’ve only used my compressor from new in January and haven’t used it more than a couple of hours a night and I don’t run it continuously. I changed the filters in March and they weren’t that grubby and I also make a point of regularly drawing the moisture filter. Recently it has started chugging and the pressure just fades, not sure whether it’s just overheating or if something is knackered. Before I get onto the company I wondered if anyone else has has this sort of problem and what it might be.I made a short video of what it’s doing, any advice appreciated

    Have you drained the tank recently ?
    Any compressor with a tank will build moisture over time. I open mine once I’m done for the day.
    You haven’t put the video up

    Hi Jack, the Power Jet Lite does not have a drain valve like the Pro. Think my video was too big to upload, even though it was only about 30 seconds. As it’s under warranty I’ll get in touch with service people here in the uk. Thanks for taking the time to respond, much appreciated

    Oh my bad, my brain didn’t notice the ‘lite’ :(
    So what you have is tankless. yes a call to tech support is probably your best starting point, at least you’ll be able to try things as they suggest it to you.
    from all reports Iwata are pretty good with problems
