Q:

Rewiring a air compressor 919-165250 from 110v to 240v?

A:

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. You will need to change the wiring in the motor along with power cord. I have posted a few images below that show how to wire the motor for 240 volts. Just click on the images to enlarge them. Once the motor wired you will need to install a new cord to the pressure switch.

I hope this is helpful.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Bob, I looked up the parts for the model number you submitted. According to the parts list the unit only has one power cord listed and no conversion kit. This unit was originally sold as a 110 volt. To be sure no one installed a different motor, you can check the tag on the motor. Once you have the plastic covers off the motor, you should be able to see the tag. The tag will have the voltage and ampere listed. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark

Hi Blane,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life.

If the ring/ gasket show signs of damage you need to replace the whole rod kit (part number A02743). You will save yourself a whole lot of time and frustration by doing it right this time.



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 won't build up pressure

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to get the air compressor to pump up to it target PSI and then shut off.

I sound’s like you have an internal leak, either with the piston ring which is a Teflon type material that is no longer sealing as well as it should.

It could also be one of the reed valves on the reed plate that is not sealing completely so that you are only getting this 40 to 50 psi results.

I would suggest taking the head off and checking both the reed plates and the piston ring.

To check the reeds on the reed plate look for the reed to be tight against its valve opening. If it is not tight it will leak back.

To check the piston ring, you can manually rotate the piston to the top of the cylinder stroke and look at the seal of the ring.

If you decide to replace the ring I would suggest also replacing the cylinder sleeve. The sleeve has a special lubricant coating, and if also could have been compromised.

Let me know what you find and I will be happy to help you further.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
