Sears Compressor - Model # 919.167311 30 gal
This compressor was given to me. It runs, builds up to 40 psi and won't cut off. It just keeps on running, and running, and running. What's the problem?...Thank you
Your complaint is not an unusual one, and I (along with dozens of visitors) have written about it extensively.
Please have a look at these pages on why compressors won't build pressure.
Regulator turned all the way in..Very little pressure at tool..
I have a 1hp 7 1/2 gal sears compressor model # 919-154010.The compreesor runs fine and builds to 90 psi
but,even with the regulator turned all the way in there
is never anymore then 20psi at the tool end of the hose.
The gauge at the regulator stays at 20psi all the time.
Any suggestions on how to increase pressure would be great..
Dave, you have two gauges on the compressor. One shows tank pressure and you say that the other, the one attached to the regulator, shows 20 PSI all the time. Correct?
When you rotate the knob on the regulator control, does the air pressure change at all? If not, try pushing in or pulling out on the knob to see if has come loose from the innards. Does this help?
It is possible, too, that the gauge has failed. If you read the GAUGES page you'll understand that these are very low cost, and prone to failure, items.
