Craftsman Parts

Craftsman makes a wide variety of tools and equipment for everyday use. After a while, these tools can wear down. Rather than tossing your tools out, you can often restore them to like-new condition with a basic part replacement.


Troubleshooting Craftsman tools

Craftsman chainsaws—Craftsman chainsaws are known for delivering power, but if your tool won't start, the problem may be a bad spark plug. If the chainsaw stalls on you, you might need to rebuild or replace the carburetor.

String trimmer—The string trimmer is a valuable tool for any yard, but if yours won't start it may be due to a clogged carburetor. You may need to replace the carburetor. In some cases, a carburetor repair kit can do the trick. If the head won't stop spinning on your line trimmer when you release the trigger, the problem is probably a bad clutch.

Circular saw—Craftsman is known for their circular saws. If yours won't run, check the motor brushes for visible signs of damage. These can wear out, inhibiting the operation of the saw.

Simple DIY tricks to get your Craftsman air compressor working efficiently

If you haven't used your Craftsman air compressor for a long time, there's a small chance that a problem could have developed. There are some instances in which an air compressor will experience mechanical issues due to one of its parts not functioning. Your air compressor may not be creating enough pressure, or it could just be having power issues in general. Many of these issues are routine and can be solved with a simple do-it-yourself fix.

  • Examine the power outlet—If your air compressor won't turn on, check the power outlet it's plugged into. Sometimes, power issues aren't caused by a problem with the air compressor itself.
  • Adjust the pressure switch—If your pressure switch isn't starting the compressor when you use up the air in the tank, adjust the pressure switch setting. See the owner's manual for instructions.
  • Uncover it—Some people cover their air compressor while it's running. This is a bad idea because it can cause the machine to overheat.
  • Change the oil—If your air compressor is running rough or shaking, it might need some lubrication. Change or add some oil to help with this.

If you've tried these simple tips and the condition hasn't improved, then a faulty part could be the culprit. Here are just some of the parts of an air compressor that may have issues:

  1. Check valve—The check valve is responsible for keeping air from flowing back into the pump when the motor isn't running. A common sign it needs to be replaced is if the machine won't start when the air tank is full. You'll need an adjustable wrench to fix this.
  2. Air tubes—If the pressure is low or you can hear air leaking when the compressor isn't running, then you may need to replace the air tubes. Tighten and loosen the air tube connection with a wrench.
  3. Air compressor tank—The tank itself can rust if condensation collects inside when it's not running, causing holes where air can leak. Unplug the device and disconnect all valves when changing the tank.
  4. Regulator—Having trouble regulating the pressure levels of your air tank? You might need a new air compressor regulator.
  5. Air compressor belt—If your air compressor is making a shrill sound when it's running, then the belt most likely needs to be replaced. You'll need a wrench to replace it.
