Craftsman 5.5 HP 919.165070 starting the motor making the lights flicker
by Jim Krack
Starting the motor started making the lights flicker. Now it will not turn on w/o tripping the 20A breaker on 12-2 new wire.
Craftsman 5.5 HP, 20gal. tank, Model No. 919.165070, single cylinder oil-free.
I replaced the regulator, removed and checked the check valve, blew through the unloader line, then tried to start it w/o hooking the air line to tank up again. No luck.It will hardly make one full revolution before it stops. What's up?
