Thank you for the question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the air compressor. The pressure switch has a pressure release valve that bleeds pressure from the pump so it starts easier. If air continues to leak out of the pressure relief, when it is turned off the problem is the check valve in the tank. The check valve is a one-way valve that allows air into the tank but not out. If the check valve is defective, air will continue to leak out of the pressure relief valve. You can try to clean the check valve before replacing it. I have posted the instructions for cleaning the valve in the image below. Click on the image to enlarge it. If cleaning the check valve does not cure the problem, you will need to replace it. The valve can be ordered from our parts website: Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the air compressor. If the air seems to be coming from the strain relief, the problem is most likely the pressure switch. To be sure, a new switch will cure the problem, turn the compressor on, and let it pressurize the tank. Then unplug the cord and remove the switch cover. Once the cover is removed, try to pin point where the leak is coming from. I recommend checking all of the pipe connections with soapy water. If all of the connections are fine, check the end of the small tube. This is a pressure release valve. If the air keeps coming, from there the check valve in the tank is the problem. Once you have pin pointed the leak you can ordered the parts from our parts website: Sears Parts Direct .

NOTE: Make sure to drain all of the pressure from the tank before servicing.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on the repair of the compressor.
