    Can anyone identify this Craftsman air compressor part?

    So my compressor stopped starting(Kicks breaker) 2 weeks ago and I have been diagnosing it off and on. I do not mind not fixing it, but I can't give up till I know whats wrong with it....

    I do not know what this part is...Its clipped to the left side in picture 4. The first pic is its little housing clip.

    The Motor does not test or even look burned out it never smoked. It spins freely.
    The start Cap tested bad , run Cap tested good...I replaced both they both test good...but no help. Points seem clean( I touched them up with 2000 grit paper for a few seconds) and the whole inside is not very dirty...considering its 22 years old. The centripetal switch moves well. manually moving doesn't help to kick it into run.

    The one curious thing is the caps never seem to have a charge....which would cause the start issue if I could find out why...No wires are burned or off.

    The red ID plate looks like it's from the original manufacturer. What's the model # Sears used for the Craftsman compressor? That will help us find the correct parts diagram.

    I'll go look for it Rod...It just occurred to me to look for the original manual...

    Edit: That is great Rod I found the manual with the number I can use to search for parts Model No. 919.165220

    and off the GE motor tag...

    Sears only lists the motor as a complete assembly. They don't sell the individual motor parts. Can you post the actual GE motor model number (or a better pic of it)?

    We always called them Klixon switches,,,

    klixon thermal switch - Google Search

    I would try a $6 one, before I spent $50 on a different one,,

    Amazon.com: klixon thermal overload protector air compressor
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    Clean the starter contacts. They apply the starter capacitor and when the motor spins on start they open up, disconnecting the starter capacitor.

    That does looks like a thermal OL to me also but ....I don't think it would cause the circuit breaker to trip unless it allowed the smoke out of the motor before it opened.
    I'd look at the starting circuit, centrifugal switch, start cap or it may have an electronic start switch if you can't see the centrifugal switch at the back end of the motor.

    One thing you maybe able to do is take the load off the motor, spin it by hand then see if it will pick up and run.
    Just a thought.
