I have a Sears model 283-15066 compressor…and cannot find any information about it. Do you know a source, or mfg? Is there an online source for the manual?
I am wanting to use it as a source for an airbrush.
You’ve fallen into the inadvertent “trap” that many DIY type compressor owners have. You have purchased a “house brand” compressor.
The thing about house brand compressors is that it’s almost impossible to find out who the original manufacturer was, and therefore, almost impossible to get maintenance manuals and spare parts for older units.
It seems that every year or two that selling company has another source for their house brand compressors, meaning that employees of that store today don’t have any idea who it was that manufactured your compressor “way back when”.
This site, available here, provides a wealth of information about Sears compressors so if you are desperate go and have a look. If not, check out the new compressor below by clicking on it.
There are a number of critical questions that you need to ask your compressor vendor before deciding to buy their compressor.
One of those is, “who fixes my compressor after the warranty period has run out?”.
So, in your case, go to Sears, and ask them, who is it that fixes their house brand compressor when it’s under warranty.
Contact that company to find out where to get information and parts for your compressor. With any luck they can help.
