Presta to Schrader valve adapter

I bought one of these today and my air compressors part that goes onto the valve which usually fits a normal Schrader did not fit the adapter. Does anyone have any idea why this could be happening?

You unscrewed the presta before you tried to push on the pump head right?

also if you screw the shraeder down too far it kinda interferes with the pump adapter i noticed if i screw it down almost all the way it works
