See the troubleshooting page about why air compressor won't restart.

From what you have I suspect an unloader valve not working. See that page for more info on it and what it does.

Then, add a comment here with your findings, please.

I HAVE HAD MY CRAFTSMAN AIR COMPRESSOR FOR APPROXIMATELY 14 YEARS AND IT HAS NEVER FAILED TO START UNTIL NOW - IT WILL NOT EVEN BEGIN TO START - ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE APPRECIATED.

Craftsman not starting
by: Bill

Could be a bunch of things, JRK.

To start, folow troubleshooting on the left navigation bar, and follow the link to the page will not start.

There's a number of checks you can do listed there, and then, add a comment here telling me what you found - or did not find - and we'll go on from there.

compressor won't start up

Checked all electrical. Is there a reset button. I used it last time with no issues. What may be the problem?

Well, Craftsman makes a whole lot of air compressors, and no two models are exactly alike, so when you ask about a reset, no way I know until you tell me the model number and I can check, or another visitor has one, and can tell us.

So add a comment with the model number, and also take a look at the troubleshooting pages on this site, particularly the one about air compressors that don't start. There are some checks you can make listed there.
