Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with the compressor. I recommend draining all the air out of the tank. Then turn the unit on and see if it still trips the breaker. If it does, move the unit to a different outlet on another circuit. If it still trips the breaker, I suspect the motor has an internal problem. If this is the case, the motor has to be replaced. I looked up the motor for this model. I am sorry the motor for the compressor is no longer available.  Please let me know if you need further assistance.  Thank you for using Manage my life.  Mark T.

Thank you for your question on the motor not starting on an empty air tank.

Does the motor attempt to start? Is it humming and then trip a circuit breaker?

There is a start capacitor on the top of the motor which if you remove it you will need to have it checked.

You can check it with a volt/ohm meter. Set the meter to the lowest ohm setting and with the capacitor removed from the motor harness you can put the red on one capacitor connection and the black on the other and if it is good capacitor you will get a reading on the meter display and then it should bleed down to nothing. Reverse the meter leads on the capacitor and it should act the same.

If it does not then you may need a new capacitor which you will need to get locally as it is not listed as a separate part in the parts list.

Please answer my questions above and we can continue to troubleshoot with that information.

Q:

What is causing my air compressor to only build up to 70psi?

A:

I would think the piston rings on the compressor may be worn. You can get a rebuild kit and install all new parts. It's also possible that the valve plate it the compressor head is bad. The head gasket could be bad, but normally you would hear the air pushing out there.
