Mine has a little knob to turn to set the pressure. Mine is set at 120 lbs. Probably yours is set so tire pressure won't go over 40 but there should be a setting to set it what you want.

My sears air compressor model 919.156781 will not pump up past 40 psi , then motor then compressor stalls and motor gets hot , have to unplug . I have had the motor checked


When it gets to 40 psi turn it off and see if you hear air leaking down from somewhere....if so listen and feel around the edges of the compressor head. If you hear or feel air leaking there you may need to replace a head gasket.

Will only charge to 40 psi, is supposed to charge to 150


You may have a problem still related to the original reason it was reconditioned.

However, you should have a regulator that you set to the tank pressure you want to maintain. Most have a tool regulator as well and 40 psi sounds like that is what it is set for.

If you do have a tank pressure regulator and it is still not charging above 40 psi, then either take it back or pick up a new regulator for under $20 at Home Depot and replace the gauge you have now.

Also, sometimes the gauge will have a needle tilted so that one end presses against the glass, and if you tap the glass hard with your finger it will move on around to the correct pressure.

Finally, if you are not experienced with small compressors, look under your gauge and see if there is not a black knob that pulls out and pushes in to turn and change the pressure.
