I have a 3 gal/ 1HP Craftsman air comp. When I plug it in and turn it on, I get the sound of current getting to the motor but it does not start. A failed Starting capacitor?


Could be, do you have a capacitor checker? It sounds like you have a compressor locked up. Do you have oil in the compressor? If the compressor is new I would take it back and see if it is still under warranty. before I did any thing to it.....

1hp 4gal 2 tank Craftsman Air Compressor not Compressing


Try emptying the tanks completely. There should be a bleeder valve for each tank. Sometimes after sitting for a while with pressure, the compressor won't have enough power to start. If you get the same response with empty tanks, there is a problem with the pump pistons.

Air pressure gauge does not move on Craftsman 1Hp, 12 Gal. Air Co


I would say that the gauge needs to be replaced. These are common items so go to any auto parts or craftsman hardware store and purchase a replacement.

be sure to use some joint compound or teflon tape on the threads so u dont have any leaks.

please rate my answer. thanks.
