SOURCE: coleman compressor no build up of pressure

Parts for coleman are available at www.mastertoolrepair.com your compressor is listed as L0502710. If however you like to tinker, you can make a pretty good reed valve out of aluminum can material or other (any ideas?). It is fairly easy to cut, does not last as long as factory stainless steel, but for short term, why not? Good Luck

SOURCE: The compressor relief valve keeps popping, compressor runs

What pressure is it popping off at? You might have to adjust the pressure switch to a lower setting.

SOURCE: install reed valves hitachi air compressor need pics

I believe in your model of air compressor, when you take apart the head portion to your compressor you should have four reed valves. When you have it apart, there should be two "grooves" on the bottom "plate" and two "grooves" on the top plate (where the reed valves go). the bottom part is easy (as you should already know) to set in the reed valves, but as i have also found out, as you probably have, that its a little more difficult to line up the other reed valves to thier "grooves" on the upper "plate". What you do to make sure that they stay in place is dab a little oil or grease on the reeds and place them in the upper "plate grooves" and carefully set the upper plate back in place where it goes on the compressor. It will hold them in place long enough to install it on the compressor and the small amount of grease that was there will quickly be burned up with no effect to the opperation to the machine.
Sorry, long winded explanation. hope this helps and if it didnt get to you soon enough i hope it helps out in the future. :-D

SOURCE: 3gal craftsman horizontal compressor wont build pressure

Without knowing specifics of your unit, If there are three reeds, then two are probably for intake and one for exhaust. Intake reeds should be on the piston side of the valve plate, discharge reed should be on the head side.

There should be a divider in the head side to separate the inlet from the discharge. Make sure the valve plate is turned so that the air from the air filter side goes to the side with the intake valves, and the air from the discharge valve should go to the side with the pipe to the tank.

SOURCE: i have a dewalt air compressor model d55155 will

If you have oil coming out of the oil fill and dip stick you most likely installed the reed plate upside down. Usually it says this side up or there is an arrow pointing up on the reed plate.
This is a good sketch of compressor and reed valve assy.

Usually the reeds are on top of the plate facing downward. If you have just a reed disc.. then the disc will need to be inverted.

Thanks for Choosing FixYa.

New AC-0032 valve plates don't work on the existing heads of my Craftsman 919.152.930 compressor. Is there a way to use the existing head or is there a different head which will work?


Your old valve plate can be repaired. Usually only one or two reeds break. Carefully trim off broken reed exposing port hole. Tap hole with fine thread and make plug with proper matching bolt. plug should be same thickness as plate. Thread in plug using thread locker then ping in several spots. Works without loss of volume. You could also replace the reeds. Good luck..

I have a craftsman air compressor model number 921.153101 that won't pump-up over 40 pounds


Its probably a oil less compressor so it could be the reed valves are bad or the piston rings are bad.

Air compressor model no. 921.153101 blowing air trough air cleaner


If you get air movement out of the air cleaner and it only compresses air to 25psi, you have bent or broken reed valves in the head. Take the head off the cylinder and inspect the valve plates and reed valves. This is a Craftsman compressor so you'll most likely have to get parts through Sears at www.searspartsdirect.com. For best results replace everything between the head and cylinder; gaskets, valve plates and reed valves.

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 http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/15651/CRAFTSMAN-Air-compressor-L0512094?brand_name_search=921.153101 that has a parts listing for the unit.

Compressor will run, but only builds to 20 lb pressure. Line to tank gets hot.


Very hot air is an indication of leaking /broken head gasket or reed valve. Before you remove any parts, with compressor running, check all fittings for leaks with soapy water. If no leaks, remove head and examine parts. If reed valve is broken replace as needed or do creative repair. Some valve plates have multiple reeds and only one reed is broken. Depending on your skill level, you can thread the hole and seal with piece of bolt (finished repair must not be any thicker than the plate). Good luck

I have a Craftsman 919.165610 2 stage oil free air compressor. It will not build pressure? I have replaced the check valve, checked the filter and still no luck? Help


Problem sounds like valve plate /reed valves or worn cylinder /vinyl ring. Easy to check, push piston to top position and examine cylinder neer top looking for scratches. If scratched, most likely vinyl piston ring/s are worn and allowing pressure to leak past. If cylinders look good /shiney all the way up to top, remove head/s and examine reed plate/s for missing/broken reeds and or torn gasket/s. If your reed plate is missing one reed and your are good at being creative, you can seal individual hole by threading and plugging with thin piece of bolt. Good luck and good holidays

WILL NOT BUILD PRESSURE


Many craftsman compressor are built by champbell hausfeld using a dry type of cylinder and piston (no oil, no crankcase). If dry type, check for worn cylinder and piston ring. Pieces of the vinyl ring can jamb between the reed valves in the head causing air to escape from the intake. If your compressor has a crankcase and oil, check for broken reed valves in head. Spray soap solution on hoses, checkvalve, drainvalve, and fittings to check for leaks. Most likely problem is reed valves broken or open. Parts are available from sears or match parts to chpower.com. enjoy
