SOURCE: lack of pressure
My air compressor builds up to 40 psi and just keeps running, i have a craftsman 5 GAL, 1HP, 125 PSI and pressure goes up to 40 psi and dose not go any higher and on the other hand engine keeps running and dose not stop. Please advise?

Unless your machine is worn out----it's probably the pressure switch:
A: needs adjustment
B: needs to be replaced
XYZ: head gasket leak,broken line, other air leaks?

sounds like reed valves are bad,sometimes you can take the reed valves and flip them over for short fix,best to put new one in unit.

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.

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
