No air pressure 919156581 Craftsman Craftsman sprayer/compressor


Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears

I am sorry and do understand your frustration when there is trouble with the air compressor.

Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your Craftsman model number 919.156581.

You can't get a gasket kit  but you can buy them separately. I see the valve plate gasket, the head gasket, the base plate gasket, and I would get the new flapper valves under the head which come in a kit.   Just need to click on the link below please.

Valve plate gasket per model 919.156581 

base gasket per model 919.156581 

head gasket per model 919.156581 

flapper valves kit per model 919.156581

 If you have further questions please let me know.

Thanks for choosing Sears

I have a Craftsman air compressor model 919.156581. The motor keeps running until the pop off valve goes. What causes this?


The normal operating range for your sir compressor is probably 80-120 lbs. This means the motor should turn off when the pressure in the tank reaches around 120 pounds. The motor will come back on when the pressure reaches around 80 pounds.

If the pressure relief valve is opening at or before 120 lbs, the pressure relief valve is weak and needs to be replaced.

If the pressure in the tank is exceeding 120 lbs and then the pressure relief valve is opening, the pressure switch on the air compressor is bad and needs to be replaced.

How exactly do I change the wiring in my electric motor to convert it from 230volt to 115 volt?


I do not have any information on the Howard model 50920318195 motor. Generally speaking there are instructions on rewiring the motor from 115 to 230 on the back side of the electrical access plate. If the wiring instructions are missing I recommend taking the motor to your local electrical motor rebuilding/rewinding shop and have them wire it up for you.
