Check and see if the inlet valve is plugged this is a thin metal valve at the top of the cylinder if this is not the problem then check to see if the unloader valve is held open by some form of debris and a nother problem could be your piston sleeve has a small hole or crack in it I hope that i have helped

I have a Craftsman 125 psi 1.5 hp 3 gallon air compressor. When I plug it in and turn on I see a blue arc come from somewhere. How do I fix this?


If the blue arc is coming from the motor it might be an older motor that uses brushes. If the motor is serviceable you would need to take apart the motor and change the brushes. Blue arcs don't usually come from shorts

1 hp 3gal craftsman compressor will only build up to 20lbs pressure in tank. how much compression should single cyl have on compression stroke?


A piston in any engine should be around 100 psi I would guess. A Chevy 350 used to be around 150 psi. An air compressor that only pumps enough air to reach 20psi is obviously too low on compression. Nailers and the like need 80 or more psi. The intake valves may be shot, the unloader might be stuck or piston rings are worn.

Compressor won't build psi above 30,is this typical of the regulator or pump? the compressor is a 3 gal craftman about 1 yr old.


sounds like the regulator is faulty, normal running air should reach 110 psi, this will allow you to run tools...

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.
