I have a Craftsman air compressor Model 919.165300. The regulator will only adjust to 50psi output. Inside the regulator is a metal stud that has lh threads on one end and a square shape on the opposite end. The stud has a hex nut assembled on the thd. end. Where should the nut be positioned on the threads? My thoughts are this is the adjustment to increase or decrease the output psi. thanks for any help.

SOURCE: converted a ge gas to lp. the oven and broiler has too much flame

You must close the gas valve orifice. There is a gas valve (silver or grey colored rectangular shaped piece which feeds the burner(s)) that has a brass or gold-colored hex nut. This nut (1/2 inch) needs to be tighten down clockwise to the stop point. This will regulate the flame.

SOURCE: I have a model FP209501 Air Compressor 2 Gallon,

The spray gun consumes more air volume than the compressor can deliver. You can pause painting periodically to allow the compressor to 'catch-up' or buy a larger delivered-volume compressor. The compressor that you have was intended to supply air for pneumatic nailers and staplers in an intermittent fashion. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Propane Regulator Adjustment

Remove the plastic cover on the center of the regulator. To increase pressure setting, turn the plastic disk beneath with a screw driver. 1 turn clockwise increases the pressure 1/2" water column.

SOURCE: porter cable compressor regulator output reads 0.

sounds like it was turned too far back, its just a spring and a screw in there see if you can t turn it to the positive enough times to make it come back if not you might have to replace the regulator, i wouldn't recommend trying to dismantle it and fix it, it could cause serious injury or damage to tools, also the plastic knob may be striped out on top

Air compressor model no. 921.153101 blowing air trough air cleaner

Sounds to me like bad (or dirty) reed valves. Carbon buildup on the reed valves can cause poor seating of the valves. Sears has an Owner's Manual available at that has a parts listing for the unit.

I have an older Sears Craftsman air compressor 1hp, 100 psi twin cyl Model 106.154541. on the cyl base there is an oil fill directly across from this on the opposite side of the cyl base there is another...

The pump used on your compressor was incorporated into different designs thus needed access to oil fill from one side or the other. Part number for oil plug was std-220 or 27642, but you can use just regular standard pipe thread plug with square head. If the oil plug fits the other hole. Buy plumbing parts at Lowes. Good Luck

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

Will only produec 20lb of pressure

I have the same make/model. Connect a device to your air line (impact, blow gun, doesn't matter anything that will use air). Operate the device and note if the pressure on your output gauge falls, and then rises back to 20# when you let off of the device. If it does, this indicates that your regulator is either defective, or it is adjusted too low. Try adjusting the regulator knob, operating it in both directions, and note the pressure on the output gauge. If you can get it to rise, you're home free!
