VOLTAGE AND CIRCUIT PROTECTION
This air compressor can be operated on a 15 amp circuit if
the following conditions are met.
Voltage supply threugh branch circuit is 15 amps.
Circuit is not used to supply any other electrical needs
(lights, appliances, etc.)
Extension cords comply with specifications.
Circuit is equipped with a 15 amp circuit breaker or 15
amp time delay fuse.
NOTE: If compressor is connected to a circuit protected by
fuses, use only time delay fuses marked "D".
If any of the above conditions cannot be met, or if operation of
the compressor repeatedly causes interruption of the power, it
may be necessary to operate it from a 20 amp circuit. It is not
necessary to change the line cord.
Safety Valve: If the pressure switch does not shut off the
air compressor at its "cut-out" pressure setting, the safety
valve will protect against high pressure by "popping out"at
its factory set pressure (Slightly higher than the pressure
switch "cut-out" setting).
Outlet Pressure Gauge: The outlet pressure gauge indi-
cates the air pressure available at the outlet side of the
regulator. This pressure is controlled by the regulator and
is always less than or equal to the tank pressure.
Tank Pressure Gauge: The tank pressure gauge indi-
cates the reserve air pressure in the tank.
Regulator: Controls the air pressure shown on the outlet
pressure gauge. Turn clockwise to increase pressure and
counterclockwise to decrease pressure. Thread nut against
knob to lock in place.
DESCRIPTION
The Craftsman permanently lubricated air compressor con-
sists of a one cylinder, single-stage air compressor pump and
air tank. This air compressor requires no oil.Your air compres-
sor can be used for operating paint spray guns, air tools, blow
guns, nailers/staplers, air brushes and inflator kits, An inline
are filter which removes moisture and dirt from compressed
air should be used where applicable. An inline regulator can
be used if a more precise adjustment of air pressure is need-
ed downstream.

CONTROLS
Refer to Figures 3, 4 and 5.
Become familiar with these controls before operating the unit.
Auto/Off Lever: Turn this lever to "Auto" to provide auto-
matic power to the pressure switch and "OFF" to remove
power at the end of each use.
Pressure Switch: The pressure switch automatically
starts the motor when the air tank pressure drops below
the factoryset "cut-in"pressure. It stopsthe motor when the
air tank pressure reaches the factoryset "cut-out" pressure,

Drain Valve: The drain valve is located at the base of the
air tank and is used to drain condensation at the end of
each use. Turn counterclockwise to OPEN and clockwise
to close.
