I have a Craftsman 1 hp 12 gallon oil lubricated air compressor with a bad motor/pump. Sears Parts Direct no longer carries the motor. I need the part number of the motor to begin a search for a replacement. I believe it was made by Midwest Air Technologies but I have been unable to get them to return my phone calls. Can you help

I don't think you need an exact replacement. I think you can go to Harbor Freight and get a 1 hp electric motor with the same shaft size and use the pulley off the old motor. You may have to make a few modifications to mount it but it should work ok as long as the RPM of motors are the same.

What type oil for model 90234 4 HP 10 gallon


The model number is not enough info but assuming it's a run of the mill, Home Depot or Craftsman type electric air compressor, you need to buy compressor pump oil at Wal Mart or an auto parts store. Please don't use Automotive motor oil because that's not going to withstand the heat of your compressor pump and you'll be buying a new compressor because of it. If your compressor has a gasoline, 4 Hp. motor, it needs Mobil 1 synthetic and change it after every 30 hours of operation.

    Sounds like motor is frozen; it happens. Most likely its bad brushes and/or commutator. It will be cheaper to buy new motor or compressor.

    Why won't it pump up past 40#?


    If you don't have any air leaks, the cylinder head gasket is probably bad on the pump. Easy fix for less than $10. you can get the parts you need here:
    http://www.mastertoolrepair.com/sears-craftsman-919195411-p-48270.html or ebay.com. For around $50 you can get the whole rebuild kit.

    My new 80 gallon Craftsman Professional air compressor's oil turned dark right away. I changed the oil and it happened again. Is there a problem? Thanks, Trevor


    Problem sounds like the type of oil being used. The oil should be a gold color. It will get dark over time but not like oil in a car. Check your owners manual to be sure that the right oil is being used.

    Compressors use a 30 weight non detergent oil. If you don't have a manual Go to any Sears Home and garden Department and they will be able to help you.

    I have a Sears 106.154581 most likely like yours. You will find a small plug (fill hole) and slightly larger plug on side of pump close to bottom (drain hole). Fill compressor with compressor oil to top thread of fill hole. Oil should look rather clear with very little odor. Compressor oil is available at Lowes for about $3. Good luck
