Q:

My Kenmore disposal runs but does not grind waste. Model 6070

A:

I'm sorry to hear your disposal is not grinding food. I know how irritating it can be. I just had to replace my disposal because the disc was no longer spinning when the motor was running because the nut had backed off and damaged the cutting disc.

Since your disposal is running make sure the cutting disc is spinning and not just sitting idle. Shine a flash light down in to the disposal and then turn it on. NOTE: Do not put you hands down in the disposal while its running. If you find the cutting disc rotating then the likely failure is one of the two or both cutting blades could be seized/stuck and not pivoting outwards towards the outer wall in order to grind. The cutting blades can likely be freed by turning the disposal on and then start feeding ice cubes down into the disposal while water is turned on to a small stream. The ice cubes are hard enough to cause the cutting blades to free up and pivot again. It's a good idea to place ice down into the disposal once a month to help keep the blades free and it helps clean the disposal. If the blades to not free up, turn the disposal off and drop about 4-5 ice cubes in and then flip the disposal on and off a few times and it may help free up the cutting blades.

Gavins: Spray the one blade with some rust penetration fluid and then let it sit a few hours and then spray some more. Then start the disposal and drop 1-2 ice cubes made from an ice tray and see if will come free. You may need to take it apart to free the one blade if it doesn't knock loose.

A:

Gavins: The nut in the center of the cutting blade can be removed but the cutting disc with the two blades will not pull up and out due to the size of it. The disposal will have to taken out and the upper housing on the disposal will have to be taken off in order to remove the cutting disc. The two blades are not removable. The cutting blades are riveted onto the cutting disc and can not be taken off.

Q:

I have a Craftsman compressor, model 919.167240, that will not build pressure past 60-70 PSI.

A:

Part number KK-4964 will include the piston, o-ring, sleeve, and necessary parts to replace these parts. I think this will be the parts you need to repair the compressor.

Inspect the valve plate above the piston and make sure none of the reeds is cracked or broken.

Q:

Why won't my air compressor pump up past 60-70 psi before shutting off and not restarting until 15-30 minutes later?

A:

I do not have enough details but it sounds like the motor is overheating and shutting off on the motor thermal overload. Once the motor cools down the thermal overload resets and it will run again.

You did not indicate if you were to drain all the air out of the tank if it would restart. I will assume it will not. I must also assume that you are not using an extension cord that is too long or too small. The failure is either a low voltage supply or a bad motor providing the there is not a friction problem within the compressor.
