I'm not sure weather you are adding oil to the engine or not. Most Briggs engines have a dip stick housed on the side of the engine. That's where you check oil and also where you add oil. Same hole.
Be cautious though not to over fill the crank case.
good luck,

12 gal 2hp instruction manual


You didn't give your model number so here's a possibility: If it's vibrating that much it's usually a good indicator the air pump connecting rod is broke. If it's been in storage it's possible the oil evaporated enough or it didn't have enough in it that it didn't lubricate the con-rod bearings. It would have started the first time but as heat built up in the bearing areas it could have seized up when it was shut off or broke when it tried to restart. You'll have to take the air pump apart to verify what's broke and what's damaged and what has to be replaced. Most Craftsman parts are only available through Sears (www.searspartsdirect.com).

Hi, a friend has a Craftsman Mdl# 919-176350 Compressor. Says it won't shut off when max pressure develops...says their are no leaks...it's currently in a garage that does not have 220 service. ...


If it will not shut down, that is an indication of a regulator problem or mal-adjustment. For best results, replace it. Craftsman/Sears should have the part.

Is this device 120 or 220?

If important, you can 'reply' to this post and that will return to my attention.

Thank you for using FixYa.com

SSR-EP75 Ingersoll Rand SERIAL # F15525U95286 320 CFM i CONTINUE TO ADD OIL GOES OUT ON HIGH AIREND TEMP. SOMEONE TOLD ME THERE WAS AN ADJUSTMENT FOR THIS. CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT TO...


Mike, an EP 75 Should not use more than 3 to 5 parts per million of oil. Your oil issue sounds like you have a separator that needs replacing or a plugged scavenge line. The separator is located in the oil tank. the scavenge line and orifice come from the bottom of the separator filter to and Thur the oil tank lid. then to the air end. In this line approx. 1ft from the lid should be the orifice. make sure its clean. your high air end temp can be from several different problems. 1- low oil level from separator or scavenge line plugged. 2- A plugged oil cooler. Dirt and debris pushed against the cooler by the the cooling fan. This needs to be cleaned using a pressure washer. Wash in the opposite direction of air flow. Be careful with the pressure washer. You can damage the cooler. Low oil level and dirty coolers are the most common problems when getting high air end discharge temp shutdowns. However you could also have a bad thermal valve located where the three cooler lines come together. you will have to remove one line and 4 bolts. inside is the thermal element. You may also have a bad HAT switch (high air end temperature). It is located in the end of the air end and simply unscrews. I do not know of any adjustment.

I just bought a used Craftsman air compressor at a garage sale...100PSI, twin cylinder, 1HP motor. Model # 106.154440. Runs fine, but wondered how to check the oil level in the compressor case and if it...


I have a Sears 106.154581 most likely like yours. You will find a small plug (fill hole) and slightly larger plug on side of pump close to bottom (drain hole). Fill compressor with compressor oil to top thread of fill hole. Oil should look rather clear with very little odor. Compressor oil is available at Lowes for about $3. Good luck

Sears craftsman 3 gal/1.5 hp air compressor won't run


are you using an extension cord? if so, plug the compressor into a wall socket, if it fires up fine then your extension cord is too long or not heavy enough - other problems could be a bad start capacitor, a loose connection in the pressure switch, or a bad switch

Oil capacity for craftsman air compressor circa 1978 model #106..


I have a 2hp craftsman air compessor with a two cylinder pump, Here is the info from my manual as far as oil capacitity:

Remove oil fill plug and slowly add
a compressor oil until it is even with the
top of the oil fill hole. NOTE: Do not
allow oil to be lower than 3/8"
from the top at any time. When filling
the crankcase, the oil flows very slowly
into the pump. If the oil is added too
quickly, it will overflow and appear to
be full. NOTE: Crankcase oil capacity is
approximately 16 fluid ounces.

I buy my compessor oil from Lowes in the tool department. It comes in 16oz and sells for about $3. I wouldnt worry about how many ounces it holds but rather that the oil level is to top of filler hole. Lowes also sells a synthetic oil for about $7 and is recommended for severe conditions (hot / cold / used all day). Good Luck!

WILL NOT BUILD PRESSURE


Many craftsman compressor are built by champbell hausfeld using a dry type of cylinder and piston (no oil, no crankcase). If dry type, check for worn cylinder and piston ring. Pieces of the vinyl ring can jamb between the reed valves in the head causing air to escape from the intake. If your compressor has a crankcase and oil, check for broken reed valves in head. Spray soap solution on hoses, checkvalve, drainvalve, and fittings to check for leaks. Most likely problem is reed valves broken or open. Parts are available from sears or match parts to chpower.com. enjoy
