If you have oil running out of turbo it could be the gasket between the oil lineand the turbo or it might be the ceramic seal in the turbo

T30 air compressor has trouble starting and kicks breaker

check the breaker it needs to be motor rated for the surge on start up this will also be higher when motor is connected to the pump due to the extra torque placed on motor plus when cold oil losses viscocity and thickens therefore placing even more torque on motor

It sounds like you have narrowed it down to the check valve...are you sure you are installing the check valve in the correct direction??? Can you blow through the check valve???

EC12 that fills fine, pressure switch kicks off, but then seems t

I have the same compressor with the same problem. I have temporarily eliminated the thermal reset with a piece of 12 gauge hard wire and it runs just fine. However, I do want to replace it before the warm weather come to the north. I tested the draw at 15.5 amps and the reset was a 17 amp. I am told by someone with superior electrical background that I need to install a 20 amp thermal reset in it's place. I have found that mine runs best when plugged directly into a 20 amp circuit and when using an extention cord I have a 10 guage cord that will carry the load needed to run the EC12.

Craftsman aircompressor bogging down

Yes , the check valve will cause this. The check valve has a flat disk with a spring that holds it down that the air passing past it erodes away till it leaks then the air that the piston pushes into the tank does not stay in the tank but returns right back into the cylinder and puts a load on the piston. Also makes the compressor hard to start back up if it does get pumped up. Some have a dump valve that drains the pressure off the head after they shut off so it can start with no load. So if there is air bleading back and leaking at the pressure swith that will be a for sure sign it is the check valve.

Craftsman air compressor, oil build up in the air line

worn compressor rings, not a real issue, I assume it is more of a build up over time, say a gram of oil is blown into the lines every year, well one gram would not be noticed nor two but since it soes not evaporate it builds up to the point that you can see it, some oil is blown by brand new compressors and over time gets to be more and more, but as long as you are still getting full pressure you do not have to service the compressor, but since this is being used on water pipes I would install a trap inline to catch the oil
