Actually not a lot of Parts.
1) Remove & Clean the Air Intake Element
a) Check and see IF the Secondary Pump Head has a Filter/Breather and Clean That also...
2) Drain and Change the Oil (per Manufacturer Requirements-I PREFER Ingersoll-Rand Compressor Oil Myself) Don't Over-Fill!!
3) Check the Wear on the Drive Belt(s) and Tension ( Deflection shouldn't be more than 5/8" Between the Motor and Compressor)
4) I usually Blow out the Motor with about 20psi of Air, since it probably has Sealed Shaft Support Bearings, and is the Brushless Type, Not Much to do. Pull Off the Inspection Plate, and Check for How Clean the Inside of the Motor is BEFORE you "Air-it-Out", if there are any signs of Greasy Dirt, you may want to get some Electrical Spray Cleaner, and spray just enough to Wash the Contaminants off...
5) DRAIN Your Main Holding Tank: Drain Until there is NO Moisture Left, just Dry Air. You could Drain into a Pint Mason Jar-Just make Sure you Only Open the Drain just enough to let a Minimal amount of Flow, and see what Contaminants are in your Tank...(this should be done at least Once a week anyways) I installed a Auto-Drain on Mine, AND a Auto Water Drain on the Regulator is a Great idea too...
6) Check ALL your Wiring Connections, make sure they are Tight...Vibration will cause them to Loosen.
7) Sometimes is a Good idea to Check Your Keyways on Your Pulley Shafts for Wear, should be a "Press-Fit"
8) Check the Pulley/Belt alignment, make sure it's running True. IF Not, Check Your Motor & Compressor Mounting Bolts

I usually do a PM (Periodical Maintanence) about every 3 Months on My Compressors...and don't forget to Oil Your Air Tools Before each Use.

    Regarding using DIESEL to Clean Out Residual Oil, ABSOLUTELY NOT!!
    Your Using a Product That is to Thin to Wash out the Crankcase, BUT, Your taking a Big Risk of:
    1) Washing Contaminants into the Journals, and Possibly Scoring the Journals (that would be a Big Mistake) as I have seen some People Run their Compreesor with Diesel in the Crankcase, BIG NO-NO...
    2) NOT getting ALL the Diesel Fuel out of the Crankcase BEFORE adding Fresh Oil which would dilute Your New Oil, and the ability for it to do it's Job correctly!!
    3) BEST idea: Get a Strong Magnet, and Install it in the Drain Plug or the Immediate area (one where you can get to it), and it should Catch all the Ferrous Metals
    4) Plus in some Remote (Rare) cases, since Diesel is Combustible you could cause a Crankcase "Problem" IF something went wrong and the Compressor got to Hot, then someone Gets Injured and/or you have a Junk Compressor....
    In Closing:
    Just Drain Your Oil as Best you can, and add FRESH oil and be about your Business.

Craftsman service manuals

I am assuming your enquiry is about the type of lube oil used in the pump section of the compressor. It would have helped if you had provided the model number of the compressor. In any case craftsman suggests all oil lubed compressors use synthetic non-detergent compressor oil.

Something like this would be required.
