Q:

Compressor runs a short time, then trips the circuit breaker. While it's running it sounds different, like air escaping from the compressor head. 106153683 Craftsman Sears twin cylinder tank type ...

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the air compressor tripping the breaker and not running right. I know how frustrating issues like this are to have.

Your air compressor will have a check valve on it. This check valve releases the pressure off the head of the pump. If that pressure it not released from the head then the motor cannot push the piston past it to get started.

Next time the breaker trips turn the air compressor off at the pressure switch. If you hear air leaking, the check valve in the tank likely causes the problem. If you do not hear any leaks, the problem is likely a defective motor.  However, based upon your symptom of hearing the air escaping, I suspect that a check valve replacement will solve your issue.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.
