Sears air compressor shutoff problem
formatting link) I can offer the following suggestion:
Your compressor should have a pressure switch on it (looks like a black box) where the the power wire and the motor wire run to. This is what controls the start & stop cycle of the compressor. It's also connected to the tank to sense the pressure and should also have a connection for a little hose that relieves the piston pressure once the motor shuts off.
It's a mechanical device and may just be "gunked up" based on your description of the *two*pressure related problems you described. Once your tank is completely depressureized you can try and "futz" around with it (unplug you machine please - that's real live 'lectricity running through them wires) and try and clean/oil it.
There should be a bulky set-screw at the top that controls the on-off pressure. You can try and turn it back and forth to loosen any stickyness - make sure you set it back to the original position.
It could also be that the electrical contacts are fryed and the switch is actually working - It's hard to hear when the machine is running, but there should be a definite "click" when the tank reaches the cutoff pressure
If you really have to, you can take it off and disconnect everything but this is a real PITA. you will have to reseal and reconnect everything after.
Failing that, you will need to replace it. a big new one (5HP v) cost me about $65 Canadian (40US)

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.

Thanks to all that provided manuals and helped others with the Sears air compressors problems.
Sears Compressor Parts
When looking for Sears Compressor Parts I became a bit fatigued with trying to use their on-line service ( details shown below) so I called them up. I talked to a nice fellow named Dexter who assured me that if a caller had the model number of their Sears compressors, the caller could order a manual and parts for that air compressor, going back “ years”.
That all may be moot, as Sears is in trouble and may not be around to help much longer, but…
In order to get Sears compressor parts you need to know your Sears compressor model number.
There are pluses and minuses to buying a store’s own house brand of air compressor, even from Sears.
The reputable stores normally have good warranties for their compressors, so you can buy with confidence, while the compressor is under warranty, that is.
It is my understanding that the larger stores develop their own brand of compressor, and then every year or so, go out to the manufacturers of air compressors around the world (right now – around the world normally means China) and they order their brand from the least expensive manufacturer that provides the package and price they want.
This means that a Brand X bought from Sears this year, may not have the same manufacturer of the same Brand X bought from them next year.
After not too many years, your compressor, which is now out of warranty, no longer has a source for parts. Unless, according to Dexter, it is an actual Sears brand. Then you have hope.
What To Do For Sears Compressor Parts?
Once you have determined your Sears compressor model number, phone here:
This number, I am assured, is working 24 / 7 / , and you can call it from anywhere in North America. I have checked it out from where I live, so why not call and see if you can get through?
Or, if your air compressor is in the Sears database, you can quite often get information on Sears compressor parts here: www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/
When searching for a specific model of sears air compressors, when you put the part number into the field on the form, don’t forget the period! (example: ).
If the compressor is in the database, some schematics page will open, and clicking the schematic will provide a list of parts, pricing, and availability.
The Next Step for Sears Compressor Parts
If you are told that your Sears air compressor no longer has parts or manual available, then visit your local Sears store. Ask the clerks in the compressor area who is the local company that…
- Fixes their compressors under warranty
- Fixes their brand of compressors when they are out of warranty
It may be the same location, but then again, it might not.
Contact those folks with your brand name and model number, and see if they can find your compressor parts or a manual for you. Oftentimes a specific model of air compressor is identical to other brands since all might have been made in the same factory. The repair depot should have this information available.
Then, ask yourself if it is worthwhile for you to have a pro fix an older compressor at substantial cost than it is to buy a new compressor, complete with warranty, given that many DIY type air compressor now often sell for under $?
Not a Sears Brand Compressor?
If the compressor is not a Sears store brand, even if you bought it at a Sears store, start by searching for the actual brand name of that compressor on the internet. If you include the model number in the search, that will narrow down the options.
Can’t find the compressor information?
Same story then. Visit your local Sears store, and ask the clerks in the compressor area who is the local company that fixes their compressors under and out of warranty. Contact them if they come up with some references for you.

twitter announced today that it will be removing its implementation of stories dubbed fleets. the feature was either loved or hated by twitter users since its initial release last year.
this short-lived feature, which was released in november of last year, will be removed on august 3. twitter acknowledged the controversial nature of the snapchat/instagram clone with the farewell tweet. notably, there was no fleet from the main twitter account announcing the departure of the feature, only a standard tweet.
in the goodbye, the company said it is working on new stuff. one can hope that they add the ability to edit tweets, in addition to the new edit audience and monetization features.
in a more detailed blog post, twitter shared that it hoped fleets would make people more comfortable posting onto twitter. as fleets disappear, some of the fleet creation features, like gifs and stickers, will be implemented into the standard tweets composer.
