SOURCE: hi just found this site trying to remedy a

My compressor would only build 40psi, the motor would run and run. It turned out to be the head gasket. The portion of the gasket
that separates the intake side from the exhaust side had failed.
If air is blowing out of your air filter (instead of there being a suction) than this is most likely the cause.

SOURCE: I have a craftsman 6.5 60 gal horz compressor.

i have the same piece of junk, iv rebuilt it 3 times in the past 5 years always a piston rod snapped and then it was running on only one. they are built like ****. anyhow I finely got smart and bought a cast iron pump thats not only quieter but puts out twice the volume of air in half the time. it took some work but it was well worth it costing under 200.00. the rebuild kit from sears will cost over 100 and it wont last. the one from sears is a direct drive pump and you will be told no one makes a direct bolt on but all it takes is cutting the aluminum housing away from the motor and welding a pin or bolt to the end of the shaft and putting a pully on it, you will also have to turn the motor to the side but let me tell you this was the best move i ever made. you can pick I bought my new pump from a place called heavy dudy air in ga. 877-447-2485

My compressor will not go over 20 psi i have a craftsman 921 4 gal 125 psi compressor and it will not build past 20 psi i do not know how to get to the pistons and stuff what do i do?


The problem with compressors not building pressure is usually a bad pressure switch or bad regulator. Does the motor shut off at 20psi or does it continue running and not build pressure? If the motor continues to run with no increase in pressure, the you should go over the machine looking for air leaks from your regulator back all the way to the motor. Any air leak while the compressor is running can cause the pressure to "peak" way before the intended shutoff that it is regulated to.

Wont build pressure past 60 psi


If you have oil-less type of compressor you may be leaking pressure past cylinder/piston ring or just air leak. Easy to check. Spray soapy water on all connections, first with pressure in tank and motor shut off, then once again with motor running/pumping. Repair as needed. If no leaks remove cover to motor and move piston to top of cylinder and examine condition. If you see scratches neer top of cylinder, then pressure is leaking past vinyl ring. If cylinder looks shiny and smooth and piston vinyl seal looks intact, suspect problem with reed valves or head gaskets. Parts are avilable at sears parts on the web. Good holidays expensive.

Craftsman 30 Gal. 150 PSI Not building air over 45lbs


The compressor valve may have a faulty gasket or seal, and maybe leaking air internally. Or the compressor might be going downhill. You can try to replace the valve seal and see if that makes a difference, otherwise you need to replace the compressor.
