Question about Craftsman Air Tools & Compressors

Air compressor regulator installatlion

I just bought a regulator, part # AC-0007, for a Craftsman air compressor, but it came with no directions. The housing of the regulator has a small arrow embossed on one end, but I am unclear whether the arrow should point toward the body of the compressor or toward the air hose. Please advise me. Compressor is mod # 919.165250

The arrow denotes direction of air flow; It should point towards the air hose connection(s)

Craftsman compressor


Prior to starting the unit. Look at the pressure gauge. 1. Make sure the regulator is set to the desired PSI. 2. Make sure the unit is connected to an AC circuit that is required to support this machine. If you have high end AC outlets that are intended for a low power i.e. 10 AMP and you connect this unit to the circuit it may disconnect. So try an outlet on the outside of the house intended for higher amperage machines like those used outdoors.

The problem may be with the power source. Check that first.

Now for the unit itself. 1. Connect the unit and set the pressure regulator to max pressure. 2. Turn the unit to Auto/On the unit should only run until the pressure is reached. 3. Connect a pneumatic tool to the unit and drain off pressure. Once the pressure gauge drops below the set value the unit should start again. If not then you need to take the unit to a certified service center to have the regulator checked.

My compressor will not go over 20 psi i have a craftsman 921 4 gal 125 psi compressor and it will not build past 20 psi i do not know how to get to the pistons and stuff what do i do?


The problem with compressors not building pressure is usually a bad pressure switch or bad regulator. Does the motor shut off at 20psi or does it continue running and not build pressure? If the motor continues to run with no increase in pressure, the you should go over the machine looking for air leaks from your regulator back all the way to the motor. Any air leak while the compressor is running can cause the pressure to "peak" way before the intended shutoff that it is regulated to.

Low air pressure


This sounds like it is either the pump is leaking from the piston or more commonly, the rubber seal that seals the outlet tube to the cylinder head blew out like mine. Let me guess, it got a lot louder than it was originally? The seals are readily available from sears parts direct, its like 3 bucks but shipping is around $8. Hope this helped

If the regulator is inline you need de-energize the compressor to remove the regulator.
