SOURCE: need help wiring new pressure switch for craftsman air compressor

Assuming that you are wiring for 115v. Lets start with the ground. The cord that attaches to the wall outlet will have three wires, green, black , and white. Insert the cord thru one of the openings of the pressure switch and attach the green wire to the ground screw. Next look very closely at the contacts and notice that they are arrainged in pairs. There is a small brass bar with two contacts that completes the circuit for each line. Start with L1 and attach white wire from cord, then attach white wire from motor to the screw terminal that small brass bar bridges to (should be T1). Next attach black wire from cord to L2 and black wire from motor to remining screw. Remember that the small brass bar with two contacts is the bridge and simply connects white to white and black to black. Enjoy

SOURCE: Craftsman pressure washer with honda engine. low pressure

Sounds like pump is not making pressure. Thats why you get flow, but no pressure.
If it sat for awhile, check shaft connection to pump. Sometimes the impeller or shaft will shear partially due to corrosion when stored. Seals on pump valves could be gone too. Get an exploded diagram, usually from owners manual, easily found for this model. Parts list should have "pump repair kit" with everything needed to bring it back to life.
You and a friend put it on the bench to work on it and save your back. The pumps are pretty easy to take apart and put back in working order.

SOURCE: lid switch is broken on model 11025852400

Good day,
1. There are 2 screws. one on each bottom corner of the control console. The may be hidden by plastic end caps that have to be uncliped. Remove screws, and lift slightly on the console and rotate away from you.
2. Underneath you will see 2 bronze colored spring clips, and a three wire plug. Unplug the three wire connector, and with a decent size screw driver, place in the well of the clips and pop them off.
3. You will be removing the whole cabinet. Top, front, and both sides as one piece.
4. Slide the cabinet forward a few inches, then tilt it over until the front is laying on the floor.
5. There are 3 distinctly different switch arrangements. 2 have a pin on the side of the lid, which depresses the switch. Purchase and replace everything, including the depressing pin.
6. The third type is totally hidden with no depressing pin. It explains itself.
7. Reinstalling the cabinet, is a lot harder than pulling apart, due to alignment problems. Having 2 people helps. The bronze clips take a lot of pressure to re-install as well.

SOURCE: need substitute switch part for sears saw

Sorry , but go buy a new saw. Your not going to find an aftermarket
dealer that carries this switch.

Trying to rig some other switch is not worth the trouble over buying a new one. If the switch is not available, then the saw is old.

How to recoil the spring on a pull start cord for a craftsman pressure washer model # 580 750 400

If no repair manual. It could be spring is broken. So I'd look for spring, and instructions to install spring. That should give you a good idea. I suppose the handle came off and lost the rope inside? Probably need new rope too. Same kind of instructions would apply in how to recoil if it's not broken.

This sounds like a pressure switch failure. follow the power cord to where it enters the compressor and the switch should be there. you should be able to order a new one through sears service center. Good luck.
