Question about Craftsman 3 gal. Air Compressor, 1.5 hp, Horizontal k
STARTED COMPRESSOR UP...PRESSURE BUILT TO AROUND 70PSI, THEN COMPRESSOR SOUND CHANGE AND PRESSURE WOULD BUILD NO MORE PRESSURE. ONCE THE PRESSURE WAS RELEASED NO MORE PRESSURE WOULD BUILD. AIR SEEMS TO BE RELEASED THROUGH THE BREATHER.
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
