Came across this while searching the forum.. This might be caused by the FX pump 2 stage piston screwing out of the position. I suspect this because
A) No air is coming out or leaking
B) You still use force to pump (You are pressurising pretty much the same air over and over)
C) You can maybe be able to fix this without a disassembly by pumping a gun to pressure the pump and then turn the handle quickly clockwise 5-10 times. You can try pushing it down too.
This should screw it back a small distance and it should start pumping again.

You’d better put loctite to the threads inside the pump which are hand loose upon the next disassembly.

I have several hours of maintenancing one behind me until TODAY I finally decided to get a tank.
