Q:

well? 919152911 Craftsman Air compressor

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the air compressor. We usually do not have problems with these model air compressor breaking rods. If your model broke a rod, I recommend checking the rod bearing. If the bearing is locking up or out of balance it could cause the rod to break. If the bearing seems fine, I recommend looking at the top of the piston. You are looking for impact damage on it. If you see any, I recommend inspecting the valve plate. I have seen one of the reeds break and cause the piston to jam and break the rod. If the top of the piston looks fine, I recommend replacing the piston/cylinder kit and the eccentric. The parts for the unit can be ordered from the following link. Replacement parts for a Craftsman air compressor model 919152911. 

 

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   

 

 

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

 

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.
