Your question prompted me to pay attention to mine this morning, and I noticed something interesting. Now I have 12.5 hrs on mine, so keep that in mine.

I noticed a tiny drop of water coming out of the bleed drain. I spit on my finger and I did have air coming out. I next put a shot glass full of water on the tip of the drain. Confirmed that there was air.

The valve was plenty tight.

I released the pressure, unscrewed the hand tightening knob all the way off. I wiped down the thing, and now no leak.

The compressor was filling before I did it, just slower.
