Sears 2HP-20GAL model #919.176320 starts to srtuggle
(Grand rapids MI)
compressor starts, then when it gets to about 20 psi, the motor starts to stuggle and then trips the overload. Any ideas what might be going on? Thanks, Denny
Denny, any change in the power supply? No extension cord, I hope?
The motor is struggling because it's trying to turn against a too great load, or the motor itself is wearing out, or a capacitor is failing.
If you can rule out any obvious mechanical issues, and the compressor is getting clean power, it may be time to test the motor and capacitor(s).
How do you replace the flappers on an air compressor?
Schematic compressor # 106171941
I have an air compressor model number 106171941 and there seems to be blow back and it seems the flappers are riveted? How can I go about replacing them?
According to the Sears parts division, and the parts schematic for your compressor that I have uploaded from their site, the valves are part #9 & #10.
If they are riveted onto the valve plate, you will have to drill out the rivet, and then rivet on the new ones.
