how do I change out the valve plate? 919167260 Craftsman Air compressor


Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with the air compressor. To replace the valve plate you need to first unplug the unit from the wall. Then remove the plastic housing around the motor. Now you should be able to see the pump. Remove the four bolts that secure the head to the pump. Once they are remove you should be able to separate the head, valve plate, and cylinder. There is a gasket between these parts and could cause them to stick together. If they are stuck together, use a small flat blade screwdriver between the parts to separate them. After you take them apart, notate how the parts were orientated and clean the old gasket material off the mating surfaces. Now you can put the unit back together in the reverse order with new gaskets. Then torque the head bolts to 49-55 in.-Ibs.  I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.  Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark
