For many years the Sears air compressors house brand has been the Craftsman air compressor. Sears, as a retailer, also sells other brands including Ingersoll Rand and Campbell Hausfeld compressors, among others.

Many folks have posted questions about their Sears compressors on this site regardless if they are referring to another compressor brand Sears sells I have added this page to provide a forum for those postings relating to any Sears Air Compressors. Other brands have their own pages on this site.

With the questionable future of the Sears organization, and the Sears brand air compressor line, this site provides a valuable resource, linking compressor users with a compressor problem, and advice from people who may have the same make and model of Sears and that have resolved their issue and may offer guidance to those that post questions.
