If your compressor is not an oiless unit there will be a plug or dipstick at a low point of the cylindrer head assembly. Most people pull the plug and lean on its side over a suitable container to drain. fill with craftsman compressor oil or equivalent, do not over fill.

My new 80 gallon Craftsman Professional air compressor's oil turned dark right away. I changed the oil and it happened again. Is there a problem? Thanks, Trevor

Problem sounds like the type of oil being used. The oil should be a gold color. It will get dark over time but not like oil in a car. Check your owners manual to be sure that the right oil is being used.

Compressors use a 30 weight non detergent oil. If you don't have a manual Go to any Sears Home and garden Department and they will be able to help you.

I just bought a used Craftsman air compressor at a garage sale...100PSI, twin cylinder, 1HP motor. Model # 106.154440. Runs fine, but wondered how to check the oil level in the compressor case and if it...

I have a Sears 106.154581 most likely like yours. You will find a small plug (fill hole) and slightly larger plug on side of pump close to bottom (drain hole). Fill compressor with compressor oil to top thread of fill hole. Oil should look rather clear with very little odor. Compressor oil is available at Lowes for about $3. Good luck

Problem starting fom cold

have you put too thick an oil in it???? or none at all??as if it starts and runs all day there,s not much wrong with it? i'm thinking its very thick oil, or lack of any oil or starter capacitor???
its very tight to turn over when starting up first thing,
are you running it on a long extension lead???
is it a 1,5hp??? it needs a 13amp fuse???,
the sip has a capacitor start motor fitted, it could be the cap going down on you?? dont play with the capacitor, they can and will kill you!!! machine mart may fix it for you?
