106.153340 pressure switch gone bad?
I have an old Sears compressor. Model 106.153340. The pressure switch. Has gone bad (leaks). In need of a new one if that is possible. Probably not. Would be happy to know of a suitable replacement part.
Sears pressure switch 220 volt?
I purchased an old Sears Twin Cylinder compressor (type 106170641)from a pawn shop.
Belt driven with 2 copper air lines from the head. A thin one to the pressure switch and larger dia. one directly to the 20 gal tank at the check valve.
I plugged it in at the shop. Motor bogged at 20 lbs. took home and Removed pressure switch breaking it. I put a p.switch from a 110 volt smaller compressr. on it and same problem. I soon learned and now I know that this Sears compressors 2HP motor is 220 volt. BUT it had a standard 3 prong 110 volt plug!
I'm going to buy a pressure switch but can not figure out how many ports it needs for air.....and cannot find the old one other than its case.....
1.My main question is with the smaller copper tube. it was connected to the pres switch and it must have released the head pressure thru the small tube when it kicked out at 100psi. Is that correct?
Is it likely that the pres switch from a 110 volt compressor will handle 220? for supervised testing purposes?

sears mod # 919 176201 regulator switch
I need a regulator switch or just the plastic housing. It seems sears no longer makes this part, is there any other regulator switch that can be used.
I would sure like to help, but I don't know what you mean by regulator switch?
You could be writing about the pressure switch or you could be writing about the regulator. They are two separate components.
I can tell you that both the pressure switch and the regulator can be replaced by off brand products.
Please click the link from the nav bar to pressure switch and regulators so that you can better understand them, and identify which of them you are asking about.
