Q:

Craftsman Air Compressor 919.16724-3

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear that the compressor is not shutting off when the cutoff pressure has been reached. I know how concerning that is to have happen.

The pressure switch is what controls the motor when it is turned to on. Once the pressure reaches the cutoff pressure, the diaphragm in the switch opens the contacts and turns the motor off. If the compressor is not turning off I recommend replacing the pressure switch. The pressure switch is part number 5140112-33.

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

Thank you for your question.

I can understand your concern when the air compressor will not pump up past 50 psi.

It sounds like the reed valves in the head are not sealing properly and will need to be replaced.

The other possibility is the piston ring and this can only be changed as an assembly.

You will need to remove the clamshell cover half�s and remove the head bolts to check the reed valves and the compression ring on the piston.

Gasket set part number: D30139, Reed plate: N017592, and Ring kit: D30324. You can purchase these from: Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to have air delivered out the hose.

It sounds like the regulator is not opened up.

Turn the regulator knob clockwise to adjust the pressure you need and set according to the gauge for hose pressure.

I hope this will help. If you need more help please reply.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for the update. If you are pulling up and then turning the knob then the pressure outlet pressure gauge should reflect the farther you turn the knob the higher the reading on the gauge and then once its set where you want it you push it in to lock the setting. If that is not happening I think the regulator may be broken internally. Are you reading any pressure at all on the outlet gauge? If this air compressor is not under warranty I would suggest that you replace the regulator. If it is under warranty I would suggest that you take the unit in for warranty repair. Sam A. I
