Air pressure gauge does not move on Craftsman 1Hp, 12 Gal. Air Co

I have a 12 Gal., 1 Hp, about a year old used very little. The pressure gauge does not move but when I take the plug out of the inlet to the tank it seems to be pumping air. I let it run for 15 min. and the gauge never moved.

I would say that the gauge needs to be replaced. These are common items so go to any auto parts or craftsman hardware store and purchase a replacement.

be sure to use some joint compound or teflon tape on the threads so u dont have any leaks.

please rate my answer. thanks.

I have a 3 gallon 1HP Craftsman air compressor has worked fine for years but now it won't build air pressure over 20lbs. Any suggestions?


Make sure there are no air leaks first.
Your pressure valve may need resetting or replaced as it could not be working. Your compressor might be wore out.
Is there a gizmo that you can turn to set pressure. if so that might not be working if you have tried to set it.

I have a 1HP/7 1/2 gal. Craftman air compressor( about 20 years old). I was using it to spray paint lawn chairs. The compressor stopped. I was to use it the next morning but for only a short time and it...


1) Check that it is not already at full pressure
2) Check that you have power coming in to the switch (20 year old power cord)
3) Bypass the switch and, briefly, plug it in.
4) Look for a fuse or breaker.
5) With the motor leads disconnected from the switch, check that you have resistance across the motor (0 ohms would be bad).

If you are not comfortable doing any part of this, don't. Check with friends & neighbors for a reputable local appliance repair company.

Does it shut off at 25 psi or just keep running and never build more pressure than that? Also, did this come on gradually or suddenly? Also, was it being used regularly when it happened or had it been sitting for a while?

Does it run? Does it stop running? Does the pressure gauge read anything at all? Is there a regulator on it? Can you take the reg off? A bunch of things to check, get it running and let me know what you find, and I will try to tell you what's next.

1hp 4gal 2 tank Craftsman Air Compressor not Compressing


Try emptying the tanks completely. There should be a bleeder valve for each tank. Sometimes after sitting for a while with pressure, the compressor won't have enough power to start. If you get the same response with empty tanks, there is a problem with the pump pistons.
