Worked okay for a while and then the compressor pump started making noise. Then it began blowing oil through the hose. Kept adding oil when needed. It kept getting worse and finally froze up. Checked with Sears Parts Direct and the compressor pump is the same price as the entire unit. FIGURES!!! Everything today is throw way junk from China. No wonder our country is in such sad shape. I'll see if I can get the pump rebuilt at a reasonable price or go shopping for a real compressor.
Picked up this unit because my old compressor gave up. Got it installed and worked fine for a week. Had head oil leak. Was replaced. This one lasted 2 weeks. same problem. had it replaced. same problem plus with noise in compressor. With fourth compressor head leaking, Sears said they would replace the complete unit. I don't know why, will have the same compressor head! Would not tell anyone to buy this item!
bought this air compressor roughly 2 years ago on sale for 499. was a good deal at the time didn't want to pass it up. first thing I noticed upon break in, the pulley for the compressor pump knocks against the plastic housing. no biggey, trimmed the bottom. after about a year it started having troubles starting the motor, and finally after 2 years it appears the starter capacitor has gone bad (maybe the motor has gone bad, figure i'll start with the cheapest solution). So bad that the motor won't even start on it's own power with the belt removed. 5$ for a replacement capacitor, not a big deal but the quality of the craftsman name is terrible anymore. The switch "manifold"(as it's referred to in the product booklet) is terribly designed since it's not designed to be removed so you can properly clean the contacts on it. In Hindsight I would've been better off buying an 80gal from **************, or spending the money on a higher quality product.
I buy Craftsman Professional for a reason....that reason being that I want things to work and work well. So far that has been the case until I bought this Air Compressor. The leaks between the head and the tank were so bad that I didn't need to use liquid leak detector ...tried to tighten the fittings but still leaked. Called for a service repair and they suggested a replacement since it had only been two weeks. But catch is I have to load it back up and take it back to the store to get the replacement. Which there is no guarantee that the replacement won't leak.I really am starting to think that Craftsman quality isn't what it used to be. There is no way this unit was ever tested before it left the factory. !! I should have headed the other reviews....if I had it to do all over again I would probably go with IR.
Bought this compressor trying to save $ and restore a 60's muscle car. It could not keep up with the use of a dual action sander when performing body work. I returned the compressor in favor of Craftsman's next most industrial compressor, the Professional 80 gallon, two stage, 5 RHP compressor. Hopefully this one will keep up with the dual action sander. I would not recommend this item if you are performing body work. Also, the on/off switch broke right before I returned it to Sears. They need to upgrade the design of the switch.

The head leaks oil all the time when running. Sears tech put a head gasket on it, then a head , then a new pump and it still leaks in the same place. I smell a lemon.
On the '12 thanksgiving day sale, I purchased my husband the Kenmore 60gal air compressor for $500. As soon as we opened the air compressor, we noticed the compressor itself was leaking oil. We called and tried to return the unit but were told since it was damaged (even though it was damaged before we got it home), they had to repair and could not return. I had to take off a day of work for the repairman to come out, look at the unit and conclude that we needed a new compressor. I then had to take off a 2nd day of work for the repairman to come back and install the compressor. We ran in the unit on the new compressor as we were instructed in the owners manual and now the compressor is seized up. I called the repair line yet again, have to take off another day's work for a technician to come out and all the Sears representative on the phone said was 'well, after three repairs, we can replace your unit. Customer service was not at all helpful and this experience has been a nightmare.
I bought this baby for 499.00 on sale with the craftsman club, so for what your getting you cant beat the price, it runs great and is actually pretty quiet, normally this size of compressor can be quite loud. it runs flawlessly. I am really impressed with this compressor. I would recommend purchasing an air filter, regulator and lubricator type assembly for it. The only down fall I see with this compressor is the on/off switch, it feels a little weak, but for me its not a problem, because I wired up a seperate switch so I just leave the compressor on/off switch on all the time

The compressor was a good price/ deal. Just be aware that the "Power Cord' is not included/ attached to compressor. At time of purchase we where not made aware that it was not included and that we would have to find an electrician to have it installed. The cord was not included in the the box. So it's an added expense.
