How do I replace the air filter on my Model 919153132 air compressor


Installing a new filter will not cure the problem. Running an air compressor without the filter will greatly reduce the life of the valve plate, piston, and the cylinder. The intake muffler is where the air is pulled into the compressor. If you feel air, coming out of the intake the valve plate is defective. I recommend taking the compressor apart and inspecting the valve plate along with the piston and cylinder. The valve plate has thin metal plates that should cover the holes right below them. If the plate is broken or not sealing, the compressor will not build pressure. The cylinder wall should be completely smooth. The piston has to fit snug in the cylinder. I recommend that you replace all three because of the age of the compressor. Make sure to order a new intake filter.
