There may be a thermal overload reset button on the back of the motor that was tripped. If you press it in it should reset it.

If this is not the problem, post a comment with more details including model number for more advanced troubleshooting.

I am changing the belt on a oil less 33 Gallon vertical 1.6 hp Craftsman Compressor and want to know if the bolt that holds the piston rod on is left hand or right hand threads?

This is standard thread, right to tighten and left to loosen.

Make sure to put a small amout of loctite on the threads when you put it back together.

A/C will only pump 30-40 lbs, but keeps running.

Maybe your unloader valve is stuck or damaged. This is found in the switch assembly and if it is faulty you should be able to hear a constant hissing noise from the switch .

Hi there. Plug your compressor in as close to your circuit box as you can on a circuit that is dedicated to that outlet

What is happening is this. You have a 15 amp circuit and a 15 amp draw on your compressor. No wiggle room at all. If you need to get the air a long ways use air hose and never an extension cord. Joe

Compressor shuts off before reaching max pressure

Yes,but if the max is 125 you don't want to increase it above 110 and set off the pressure relief valve.

I have a electric air compressor craftsman 3.5hp 15 gallon it wont start back up when air is low

The pressure switch controls the cut-in and cut-out points for the motor. Some switches have a differential adjustment besides the pressure adjustment. The differential controls the spread between cut-in & cut-out, (say in at 80 PSI, out at100 PSI)

Try looking for these if you didn't get a manual.

Good luck
