craftsman 2 1/2 hp 12 gallon compressor wont shut off
by Tom Alley
I have a craftsman 2 1/2 hp 12 gallon tank and it will not shut off, it keeps running until the safety relief value opens up. Also if I cut it off with the switch it will not start back up until all of the air pressor is out. Thanks for any info that you can furnish. Tom
Tom, if the compressor runs past its normal cut off pressure point, the it's likely that you have a pressure switch failing.
Since your pressure switch is not tripping to cut the power, and to open the UNLOADER VALVE, then the compressor cannot restart due to the extra load on the piston.
At least, that's what it sounds like.
craftsman 22 Gallon 5 hp vertical air compressor ~ manual needed please
by Andy M
I need the manual for a Craftsman compressor.
I have thoroughly examined it and cannot see a model number.
It says its a 22 Gallon Max 5 HP "Professional"
It is classic Craftsman red and is a vertical portable compressor.
There must be a plate on it somewhere with, if not a model number, at least a serial number?
Your request is posted. Good luck.
