REGULATOR NEEDS TO BE TURNED UP. SOUNDS LIKE THE LOW PRESSURE SIDE IS WORKING. MAYBE THE HIGH PRESSURE VALVES ARE NOT WORKING CORRECTLY IN THE HEAD. MARK THE CORNER OF THE HEAD AND VALVE PLATE AND REMOVE - MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT BROKEN AND THEY ARE OPENING & CLOSING ALL THE WAY. MARK "UP" ON PLATE SO YOU DONT FLIP IT ACCIDENTLY. HIGH PRESSURE PISTON ROD IS BROKEN AND NOT GOING UP AND DOWN.

Sears craftsman air compressor model 919.153160 will pump to 150psi but is leaking when it is pumping it will shut off at 150psi but then struggles to restart (tries several times before it does start).


Loosing line a little bit going into tank and see it the pressure continues to come out if so, you might want to consider replacing the check valve. It is designed to keep the pressures in the tank and when they leak off it causes back pressure on the motor making it hard to restart...hope that helps.

Compressor motor keeps running and the tank relief valve opens and pressure is released. why will the motor not stop when pressure reaches 150psi


Hi,
The pressure switch has gone bad....there is a switch that is to stop it and then restart it on pressure...either the switch is bad or the tube is plugged...going to the switch.

My air compressor wont shut off when its full like it use to.


Hello
Could be a bad pressure control switch.

Depending on the size of the compressor it should shut down on high pressure via a pressure switch.Some will shut down at 150psi.

Also there should be a relief valve,make sure this is also working.

Craftsman 6hp 150psi 30gal won't keep running


It sounds like the internal circuit breaker in the motor is heating up and then the breaker trips to shut down the motor. This is the protection so you don't have a fire if the motor burns up. The smell you have is the coils in the motor. Sorry to say that you will need a new motor for this unit. I hope this helps out.
