Bostitch Air Compressor Won't Hold Air


I have a Bostitch Air Compressor that won't hold air. Checked the head gasket seems fine. It is less than a year old (of course can't find receipt for the warranty). The fittings are tight. Any ideas? Thanks

Is the hose still on or do you take it off when not in use?

Have you tried lightly spraying the fittings with soapy water? Watch for the little bubbles...go after it.

HI-
I take the hose off when not in use, but had it on when it wouldn't store air.
THanks
