Please help me identify which part broke on my compressor
Several years ago, I purchased a brand new Husky compressor. The unit worked fine for a while, but right after the warranty expired, something 'exploded' in the motor housing. The motor ran just fine, however, it was no longer charging. So I took the cover off, and noticed what looks like the air line no longer being connected to the switch. I have an idea of what might have gone wrong, but I think I am still missing a part. Can someone help me identify what exactly I need? Thanks!

edit: question answered, the part in question is the unloader valve.

Hose hose go bad over time, on mine there was not even a clamp on it so it just fell off.
Good luck trying to find a web site to order parts for it.
I had to fix a few Porta Cable pancake compressers and found out Devilbuss made there compressors. When I took the Husky apart the parts were identical to the Porta Cable brand.

Manufacturer sells the part for $10, so I ordered it, received it last night, and back up and running. The motor is made by Campbell Hausfeld, and they helped me identify what I needed from photos. The hose wasn't clamped, it's just pushed into the little valve, so I am not surprised it came out.
