Builds pressure, will not cycle back on and leaks fluid
I have a 33 gallon craftsman air compressor 6hp model number 919.167342. It builds pressure up to around 140psi in the tank then shut off and would not cycle back on. Motor spins freely (it is an oil free motor) but there is a oily substance leaking from the rear cover, followed with an akward smell. I pulled the cover off and nothing appears melted but there is smoke coming from inside the cover. Compressor still spins but just hums when you put power to it.
