Q:

Tank Leaking 919167620 Craftsman Air compressor

A:

Rick, I am sorry you are having a problem with the air compressor. All the tanks have to pass a pressure test. I used to know the exact pressure and length of time but it has been a while. As Wade said, the tank should have a metal tag welded to the tank with the test qualification information. It is not common for a three-year-old tank to fail. I recommend taking the unit to the store where you purchased it. They should be able to determine if the failure was caused by manufacture defect or water in the tank. The tank should be drained daily when in use. Failure to drain the tank can cause rust and thinning of the tank wall. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance, on the air compressor. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark

Q:

My model 919167620 compressor, part number A06891 leaks. It has only been used 4 times. Any suggestions?

A:

The drain valves on these compressors have not been a problem. We have not replaced very many. I think if you just replace the drain valve you won't have any more problem.

I don't think I have ever seen a left hand thread street elbow.

There are no washers or any other part associated with the drain valve. It is self contained.
