Q:

Craftsman Air Compressor Model # 919-162120

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the air compressor. I have checked the model number you have submitted. Your compressor has an airline that runs between the pump and the tank if the line comes disconnected you will have this problem. I recommend unplugging the compressor and remove the side covers. Inspect the airline from the tank to the pump. If the line is loose, repair the connection and test the operation. If the line is fine, check the belt. This model uses a belt to drive the pump. If you need to order a new belt you can do so from our parts website Sears Parts Direct . if the belt and the airlines are fine I suspect there is an internal failure in the pump its self. You have to disassemble the pump and replace the worn parts.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on this problem.

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 .

Q:

Air compressor

A:

Thank you for your question.



I will be happy to assist you with this problem. If the unit will not build more than 60 psi after running for a long time, I suspect the problem is in the pump. The likely cause of the problem is a worn piston ring and cylinder. It can also be caused by leaking reed valves. The reason it may be turning off is because it is over heating form running so long. Then once it cools enough, it will come back on until it heats up again. As long as you do not hear any air leaking out, I would expect the piston and cylinder to cure the problem.



I hope this is helpful. Please feel free to reply below with more details if you need further assistance.
