Craftsman compressor Model 921.153101, quickconnectplug won't fit

The quick connect plug won't fit into the quick connect socket. It seems a bushing is lodged part way, keeping the coupler half-way open. It seems it should come out, but the manual says nothing of this and I did not want to rip it out.

It was running fine. then for some reason it stop working


What ampage does your compressor draw ? If it is more than 10 amps you have blown a fuse . DO NOT PLUG COMPRESSORS INTO CIGARETTE LIGHTER SOCKETS ! RATHER CONNECT UP DIRECTLY TO YOUR VEHICLE'S BATTERY.

Need a new pressure switch for Craftsman model 919152920 compressor, but that part is no longer available. The switch doesn't function to even turn on the compressor.


You can purchase a generic/ universal pressure switch from www.grainger.com or ebay. Just look for the correct fittings and pressure cutout. Cost about $20. Before you order a new switch you should test that motor and pump are ok. Jump the wires on the pressure switch temporarily so line-in is connected to motor line. When you connect cord to wall plug the compessor should start and begin to fill. If function ok then order switch. If the motor does not start, may not be switch. Good luck

Motor runs, but no air pressure builds in tank


Three things to check.

1) Check that the tank drain is closed

2) Check that your quick connect fitting at the discharge of your compressor is sealing properly.

3) There is a copper or aluminum line that goes from the head of the compressor to the tank. Check the fittings on each end they occasionally come loose due to vibration.

If all of the above is ok:

Check the head gasket of your compressor. The unit you have is notorious for blowing head gaskets.

Hope that helps,

I have an older Craftsman Air Compressor and the knob valve to reg the pressure seems to not be working. Can I replace it?


It is getting increasingly more difficult to obtain replacement parts for older compressors. If your regulator failed at a fairly high pressure adjustment, say around 100-120 lbs, you could just leave the old regulator in place and add a regulator when needed to one of the quick connects. Purchase a generic pressure regulator from Lowes and add quick fittings to easily connect the regulator or remove when not needed. You could also just remove the old regulator and work-in a new generic regulator in its place. Generic regulators sell for $20 - $40. Good luck with your repair.

I have a Craftsman Air compressor 919.150380. My tire needs air. My husband passed away 3 yrs. ago, and I don't know how to operate it. Can't find owner's manual or one online.


Attach your hose and tire filler. They should be a "quick connect". Take the larger fitting and kind of slide it back and insert the smaller fitting. Let go of the slide and pull to make sure you have a positive connection. It will be easier to connect everything when there is no air pressure. There should be an on/off switch located on the right if the tank is facing you. Plug it in, turn it on and wait for it to fill up. Depending on how much air you need, you might have to put some in and then let the compressor cycle back up to its high pressure.
Let me know if I can help you further.

Need to replace drain valve


The "welded nut" is the pipe fitting into which the drain valve or drain plug is screwed. It's usually brass and the valve or plug can be obtained through Sears or possibly and good harwarde store. Be sure to use pipe sealing compound or teflon tape on the threads when you re-install the valve or plug.

NOTE - THE AIR MUST BE DRAINED FROM THE TANK BEFORE REMOVING THE VALVE OR PLUG. ALSO, POWER SHOULD BE DISCONNECTED FROM THE COMPRESSOR!
