THIS MANUAL IS DESIGNED TO MAKE iT AS EASY AS POSSIBLE
FOR YOU TO SET UP, OPERATE AND MAiNTAiN
YOUR NEW AiR COMPRESSOR
GENERAL iNFORMATiON
ASSEMBLY iNSTRUCTiONS
You have purchased a complete portable compressor
outfit consisting of a 2 cylinder single-stage air
compressor with air tank, air hose assembly, wheels
and handle. You will also find an air chuck and a
helpful "Power Painting With Sprayers" booklet. The
2 horsepower unit has a removable foot extension
bracket which allows for stationary mounting.
Tools Needed For Assembly
These units can be used for operating caulking guns,
grease guns, air brushes, sandblasters, air tools, etc., or
inflating tires and plastic toys, spraying weed killer,
insecticides, etc.
GENERAL
Tools needed are: (1) a 9/_6"socket or open end wrench
for attaching the wheels and hose adapter; and (2) an
adjustable wrench for attaching the pressure regulator,
and (3) a Z/l_"open end wrench for attaching the air
pressure gauge, (4) a 7/_6"socket or open end wrench for
attaching the foot extension bracket (2 hp. unit only), (5)
a 3/_6"hex key for installing the plug in the regulator and
(6) pipe thread sealant.
Attaching Wheels, Handle, Etc.
DESCRIPTION OF OPERATION
To compress air, the pistons move up and down in the
cylinder. On the downstroke, air is drawn in through the
air intake valve. The exhaust valve remains dosed. On
the upstroke of the piston, air iscompressed. The intake
valves close and compressed air is forced out through
the exhaust valve, through the check valve and into the
air tank. Working air is not available until the compressor
has raised the air tank pressure above that required at
the air outlet. The air intake opening must be kept clear
of obstructions which could reduce air delivery of the
compressor.

crankcase, the oil flows into it very slowly. If the oil is
added too quickly, it will overflow and appear to be
full. (Crankcase oil capacity is 16fluid ounces.) Under
winter-type conditions use SAE 10W oil. Multiviscosity oil (10W 30) may be used but will result in
carbon deposits on critical components and reduce
performance and compressor life. Replace oil fill plug
(50). Plug the compressor into the correct power
source. Start the compressor by switching the ONAUTO/OFF switch (20) to the ON-AUTO position.
Open the regulator (46) by turning knob clockwise
fully to permit air to escape and prevent air pressure
buildup in the air tank. RUN THE COMPRESSOR 30
MINUTES iN THiS MANNER TO LUBRICATE PISTONS AND BEARINGS. Shut off air with regulator
(turn knob counterclockwise) and let the unit pump up
to cut-off pressure. Turn the switch to "OFF" and
check the oil level; add oil if necessary. Turn switch to
"ON" and the unit is ready for use. Connect the air
hose to the air adapter (86) located at the end of the
regulator.Refer to Figure 1.
OPERATION
Manifold
The manifold (28) is located on the top of the unit
between the motor and air compressor pump. On the
manifold is the pressure switch (20), safety valve (29),
regulator (46) and pressure gauge (27). The gauge
shows the air tank pressure. The air pressure coming
from the air tank is controlled by the regulator knob.
Turn the knob clockwise to increase pressure and
counterclockwise to decrease pressure. Refer to Figure 3. To avoid minor readjustment after making a
change in pressure setting, always approach the
desired pressure from a lower pressure. When reducing from a higher to a lower setting, first reduce to
some pressure lessthan that desired, then bring up to
the desired pressure. Depending on the air flow
requirements of each particular accessory, the outlet
regulated air pressure might have to be adjusted under
flow conditions.

Pressure Release Valve
TANK
{Models 919.174410 & 919.174320 Only)
The pressure release valve located on the bottom of the
pressure switch is designed to unload air from the compressor head automatically at unit shut off. This protects
the motor from starting against air pressure remaining in
the compressor head and tubing. When the motor stops
running, air will be heard escaping from the valve for a
few seconds. When the motor is running, no air should
be leaking from the pressure release valve.
Note
Models 919.174212& 919.174311are designed to
operate without this unloading feature.
MAINTENANCE
Replacing
Air intake Filter
Figure 3
The pressure switch (20) is pre-set to shut off the motor
automatically at the maximum operating pressure. If the
pressure switch does not shut off the outfit at its cut-off
pressure setting, the safety valve will protect against
high pressure by popping at its pre-set pressure.
Motor
The motor has a thermal overload protector, tf the motor
overheats for any reason, the overload protector will
shut off the motor. The motor must be allowed to cool
before restarting. Turn the ON-AUTO/OFF switch to the
OFF position. To restart, turn the ON-AUTO/OFF switch
to the ON position. Depress the reset button located on
the end of the motor. Refer to Figure 1.
Note
If the overload protector shuts the motor off
frequently, check for a possible voltage problem. Low voltage can also be suspected when:
1. The motor does not get up to full power or
speed.
A dirty air intake filter will not allow the compressor to
operate at full capacity. When the intake filter becomes
dirty, oily, or covered with paint overspray, replace it. Do
not operate the compressor with the air intake filter
removed. To replace the filter, use needle nosed pliers
and pull or pry the old filter out. Replace with new. Refer
to Figure 1.

Location of Air Compressor
Locate the unit in a dry, clean, cool and well ventilated
area. The compressor crankcase and head are designed
with fins which allow for proper cooling. Clean or blow off
fins and any other parts of the compressor that collect
dust or dirt. A dean compressor runs cooler and provides
longer service. Do not place rags, containers or other
matedal on or against the belt guard which wouJd obstruct
ventilation openings necessary for proper compressor
operating temperature, ff humidity is high, a Sears air filter
can be used to remove excessive moisture. Follow the
instructions
packaged with the air filter for proper
installation.
