Sear Air Compressor Pressure Switch
I have an older model sears air compressor, single cylinder, model number 10615340 for which I need a wiring diagram going in and out of the pressure switch.
I'm about 30 days away from publishing my ebook "The Home Compressor" which will provide step-by-step instructions in changing a pressure switch.
One of the things in that process is BEFORE you remove the pressure switch, you take the cover off (after unplugging the unit of course) and tagging each wire with where it came from and where it has to go when you reassemble.
For those of use who only change a pressure switch once or twice a lifetime...unless you're an electrician, you can't be expected to just know.
For what it's worth, you'll have an electrical supply and a return from the plug side, and the same to the motor. One of them (the supply or the return) is wired through the pressure switch to open and close the circuit when the pressure is reached or the pressure bottoms.
Sorry, I can't be more specific than that.
Cheers, and sorry for taking so long to respond.
just purchased air compressor, ran through the correct break in as instructions stated, have had for 2 days and have noticed a light mist of oil shooting out of the head area along with some air...
Out of the head area isn't specific enough, Nikki.
Have a look at the intake port. Is this where the mist ans air is coming from?
You may only be seeing atomization of oil that was in the cylinder when the compressor was built, or it might be oil wicking by the piston seal.
However, it should not be coming out of the intake port. If it is, that would suggest to me that an intake valve is not seating properly.
