2HP 919.15678 Sears compressor

2HP 919.15678 Sears compressor

I have two older very common Sears/DvBliss compressors, one is an 1hp compressor and the other is a 2hp compressor, I have also seen 3hp ones that have the same look to them. The two horse is 919.15678. My question is concerning the pump they appear to all use the same compressor head unit with just a bigger hp motor and a slightly larger motor pulley. I was just hopping to confirm this theory and also find out what the actually max speed the heads were made to run at?

1hp sears model runs flawlessly
by: Anonymous

I own the 1 hp since 1977. I recall the breaker tripping problem. After changing the jumpers in the motor to 220v, the unit has worked flawlessly for me for 40 years!

If there's just the compressor on the 20A circuit, and it's blowing the breaker, you might want to take a look at the capacitors. Depending on if it blows at start/restart, and/or running, either or both could be weak or flat-out bad.

Look at the troubleshooting section for help on that, should you need it.

Just acquired
by: ChriscThomas

I got one ate a garage sale yesterday. It is almost need condition including factory sticker on it. The motor is a 110/220. It draws 15A on 110 and the motor plate says either 3152 rpms or 3600'.'cant recall. OBVIOUSLY 2.lhp plus. Constantly trips 20amp breaker( has a sticker that recommends time delay breakers).
I was skeptical of buying an old compressor and expecting modern performance, but this is the only compressor that I have ever used that ruins more quietly than my recently stolen Makita

pump speed
by: Doug in s.d.ca

Don't think I've seen anything much over 1100RPM.

Might be interesting to calculate the speeds on what you have.
