SOURCE: 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

sounds like you need a new check valve which should be somewhere between the compressor outlet piping,tubing,etc and the tank which prevents the air in tank to back feed to the compressor which would cause hard starting and could damage the motor easy way to check is when you shut off the compressor with some air in the tank if the check valve is bad it would continue to bleed air out out the unloader valve .the unloader valve on your unit is most likely part of the pressure switch when the unit shuts of it should only bleed down the pressure in the pump so it would make it easy to start when needed hope i didn't confuse you

sounds like a bad or broken valves in the head. crankcase needs a vent which is sometimes a small hole drilled into the oil fill plug and will normally blow some air out the vent while it runs

SOURCE: no air pressure
TRY ADJISTING THE TANK PRESSURE KNOB WHILE RUNNING ,TURN TO THE RIGHT 1/4 TURN UNTILL YOU SEE NEEDLE MOVE .MOST TIMES FACTORY SETS AT 0,SO YOU NEED TO ADJUST IT .MY ADVICE IS NO MORE THAN 90-100 PSI TILL YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR RUNNING MORE OFTEN
