Question about Craftsman 1 Hp, 4 Gal. Air Compressor
Sounds like reed valves are bad,sometimes you can take the reed valves and flip them over for short fix,best to put new one in unit.

Actually these reed valves a pretty tough. They don't flex but rather rise and fall in the reed cavities.
I had the same problem and found the head gasket blown. This gasket lies between the head and the upper reed plate and has only a 1/4 inch strip of material between the intake and output reed valve cavities. Periodic retorquing of the head may be advisable.
