Q:

Compressor is putting out oil 106175541 Craftsman Twin cylinder tank compressor

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the compressor leaking oil. I know how frustrating that is to have happen.

It is very possible the oil leak is caused by overfilling the compressor during the oil change. SearsPartsDirect.com still has most of the gaskets and seals still available for it if you wanted to do seal/gasket/rings rebuild. However, the manual we do not have available any longer, it is no longer being printed and we do not have any hard copies left in stock. 

I would try draining a little oil first and check operation. If it continues to leak, you will want to disassemble it and see if you can find a torn/blown gasket or bad seal. We also have the piston kit (part number VT005501SJ) available, as well as the complete pump assembly depending on how far you wanted to rebuild it. 

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

Q:

tank leak from bolt 106175541 Craftsman Twin cylinder tank compressor

A:

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with the air compressor. I'm not sure which bolt you are referring to but I think it may be either 62 or 64, which are compression fittings (see image) that hold the tubes. If one of these fittings is leaking, it will probably need to be replaced. There is no special tool to remove them. It will turn counterclockwise to remove it. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread with any additional details and any pictures you could send would be very helpful and I will assist you further. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired by a Sears technician.  Here is a link that will provide the nearest drop-off locations: Sears Home Services.

Frank, I am sorry I am not familiar with this switch. If you have an ohmmeter, you can check the switch to determine where the wires connect. You will set your multi meter to Ohms and test between terminal 1 to 2, then 1 to 3, then 1 to 4. With the pressure in the tank low, we should be able to determine how the switch is set up from the results that you report to me. For example: 1 to 3 may show less than one Ohm, but OL or infinite Ohms between the other two (2 and 4) terminals. I need to know where you have a continuity reading. You should have two closed readings. For instance, a closed reading between 1-3 and 2-4. Once we know which numbers have continuity, I can tell you where to connect the wires. If you have a digital camera, a picture of the switch with the cover off might be helpful. I hope to hear from you. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark.
