SOURCE: craftsman compressor motor/capacitor problem?

I had the same tripped breaker problem with a similar Sears model 919.195060 (25 gal) and luckily I had access to another, almost identical sears compressor to swap parts to diagnosis it. It turned out to be the run capacitor, but from what I was finding in my on-line research, it could have been a bad winding on the motor or the start capacitor just as easily. If your resistor is outside of the capacitor, just cut the wire right at the capacitor and add flag termnals Mine had 3 wires coming out of the capacitor (not the normal terminal cap style), and two of them were basically just tied together (same color). I didn't have an external resistor. I bought a GE 97F9614 run capacitor (40 mf, 370vac) and other than having to cut out a bit of the plastic on the mounting bracket and buying "flag" style 1/4" terinals from radioshack, it fit and worked perfectly. It seems if GE is the only one that has the right dimensions (1.75dia x 3.88 long, not including the terminals. That capacitor cost $27.50 with tax at a local electric motor shop. Sears doesn't even have any info on the motor parts, like capacitor - they want to sell you a new motor for almost as much as a new whole compressor. I ended up looking at parts forr the motor on a Devilbliss (that's what the 919 means on the model number, that it's made by Devilbliss), but it was not an easy way to go and really didn't help that much). The easier/normal way of matching capacitors is to measure the case dimensions carefully and match up the voltage and uf (or mf) specs,

SOURCE: craftsman compressor motor/capactitor problem?

It sounds like either the check valve or the switch that lets the air pressure off of the pressure switch is broke. After the compressor pumps to shut off pressure, when it shuts off, it should let a short burst of air from the switch. If it does this, that parts good. Give it a little time, then manually push that plunger on the switch.( you're trying to see if the check valve, which is a one way valve, is leaking air back into the cylinder) If air is release from that plunger, the check valve is leaking and will not let the compressor start, because air has leaked back into the cylinder.

SOURCE: 1/3 hp drill press motor runs hot and very slow.

Look instead at the motor and drill post bearings. Remove the belt to see if the motor runs correctly with no load. If it still hums and gets hot, check that the motor itself turns freely (when off). If the motor seems to be ok, turn the driven pulley by hand--it should also turn freely. The capacitor is usually a starting assist, not running. To test, wrap a small rope several turns (when pulled must turn in the normal direction) around the small motor pulley and pull smartly while turning the motor on. If it now comes up to speed, the capacitor has lost capacitance. Electronic parts suppliers like Jameco or Mouser have such items.

They have all of the capacitors there. All you need are the number of wires and the capacitor micro-farad ratings.

    The plastic over the on/off button broke, shredder does not turn on. Can this be replaced to work

    It appears that the controls are covered by a film with symbols printed on it; this shouldn't have disabled the machine and this type of control has no dangerous voltages present so safety is not an issue.
    This type of control generally uses small carbon buttons or a tiny enclosed switch assembly and neither of these are very durable and may not be making contact as they should.
    Another possibility is that an internal switch that is activated by the paper inserted may have failed.

    There does not seem to be a manufacturer named 'Universal' but the link below is a Chinese maker with a model very close to yours:

    You seem to have no recourse other than contacting the firm that sold you the machine for service.

    Good luck=

    240s4 KOBRA: Will switch on but wont swich to reverce or shred

    You have possibly lost the PCB inside the machine. If you are capable you can take the top cover off(Make sure its unplugged.) With a multimeter you can check the motor...normally black, red,blue wires.
    Black is common...should read about the same between black and red and black and blue. If you have a short cct in either direction the motor is faulty. Check the motor befor replacing the PCB. ...A bad motor will just blow a brand new PCB.
    you can contact for parts.

    No spark at plug

    Hi, I can see you posted this in April, so you may have sorted it by now!..? Is your problem that it will not start? If so and you have checked that the air filture and spark plug are OK, then you should make sure that all four lights are on, on the dash. Also you need to make sue that the black flap at the back directly behind the seat is pressed down properly. If it is up slightly it will stop it from starting as it is a safety feature. It has some sort of trip swith on it. I hope this has been helpful.

    Bin light is staying on and we cannot shred any paper. The shredder does not appear to be jammed anymore. what can we do?

    check underneath to see if the bin full flap is working.
    First, uplug from power. Look underneath and see if you have a flap. If you do, then make sure it's quiet and move the flap back and forth. You should hear a microswitch click.
    If you don't have a flap and the hopper is removeable, make sure hopper is installed properly.

    OM 99727 shredder not working

    I had this same problem. This is what I did to fix it.

    When I went to (the recommended web site for technical support of this particular shredder), I read that 'Most models of shredders have a safety interlock switch that is activated by the basket.' Upon looking closely at my basket and the shredder, I found this safetly interlock switch and made sure to align it with the proper position within the basket. There is only ONE way to place the shredder on the basket and have this safety interlock switch activated. The switch is located on the underside of the shredder. Align this switch with the ridge on the inside of the basket. Listen carefully and you will hear the switch 'click' when in the right position. Mine is very touchy. I've even had to press in on the side of the basket while shredding to make sure that the ridge and the switch are making contact.

    Hope this helps!

    Check and make sure the paper catch bin is locked into place.
    IF the shredder doesn't see that the bin is in place, the shredder will appear dead for safetly reasons.

    There is a possibility that the control board was cracked but the only way to check that, is to take it apart and check.
    Good luck.
