JPi4.0 Next the chuck on the compressor is a relief valve with a ring on it. Pull the ring and let the air out. The compressor should turn on

I had to experiment with a couple of different chucks before I found one that worked satisfactorily.
It has a small built in tank. A gallon if I remember right. But everything else works the way you said.

For the record, I did inflate one tire like three psi and it took about two minutes to do that.
Perhaps your hose or the chuck is partially plugged. Could be a mfg defect

I would appreciate any help because its a pain to have to pay to fill up at a gas station when I have a compressor on the front of my car that advertises being able to fill up 4 tires in under 8 minutes.
I'm not sure how to answer your question, but you are obviously doing something wrong, or your Warn Powerplant is malfunctioning. Mine quickly and reliably takes me from 15 psi to 30 psi on four tires in under ten minutes. I have done it many times. I have used several different chucks with it and some do work better than others, although they all are theoretically the same type. If the chuck is bad you will hear it leaking instead of filling the tire. You might describe what connections and chuck you are using.
