Tyre inflating

Hi

Just wondering if anyone has experienced this or if anyone knows what the issue/ fault will be.

Tried pumping up my tyres in the garage using their machine. In the past it happened at Sainsbury's getting the message E1 on the air machine screen.

I tried again at a BP and that worked fine. Gone back to the same BP today and seeing the E1 message.

Is it a possible problem wi
th the tyres I can't think what, or coinsidence that there's been an issue with the two machines.

Thanks

it's a fault with the machine
the machine can't detect problems with tyres, it's not that bright, it can only compress air and cut off when it reaches a certain pressure

Great bit of kit. Finding it though since new garage was built can't find nothing.

Thanks for the help everyone.

I thought as much, obviously just a co-insidence.
I've got a compressor but haven't used I for ages and believe it needs charging for 24 hours. Not great!
