Sounds to me like bad (or dirty) reed valves. Carbon buildup on the reed valves can cause poor seating of the valves. Sears has an Owner's Manual available at that has a parts listing for the unit.

Owners manual

There are very few places that carry Craftsman parts and manuals other than Unfortunately your manual is no longer available through them and the only reference to the manual (part number SI-30-14-5-A) on a web search is to the Sears website. Most of the parts for your compressor are available on that website. If you have a specific question you can post it here and I'll try to answer it.

I'm looking for the manual, as well. Sears Parts Direct has it available for $7.49, but I was hoping to find one online so I wouldn't have to wait for it.

The pump used on your compressor was incorporated into different designs thus needed access to oil fill from one side or the other. Part number for oil plug was std-220 or 27642, but you can use just regular standard pipe thread plug with square head. If the oil plug fits the other hole. Buy plumbing parts at Lowes. Good Luck

Since the exact model number manual is not available go to Sears and look at the compressors they have on the floor (or in the catalog). Find one that looks like the one you have and note the model number (these devices haven't changed much over the years). order the manual for the one that matches your machine the best.

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

Sometimes starts. but doesn't always run at full power. I think it's the run capacitor

I don't know how old you compressor is but (and please don't take this personally) it's a piece of junk. That said I must give sear's kudos because It is an incredibly successful one. They are made to use and throw away.

These things are everywhere.

The one redeeming value seems to be parts availability.
I don't know the exact model of your compressor but click the link and check the part numbers available. It may not even be an exact match. If it's close check it and click the links to the images on the page. More then likely any parts you need will fit several models.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any trouble locating your model and respond back with those number and I'll find what you need.
