Q:

5.5hp compressor Model number 919165310

A:

Thank you for your question. I am sorry you are having a problem with the air compressor. I looked up the model number you submitted. This model does not have a reset. If the motor will not make any noise at all, I recommend checking the outlet first. Just plug something else into the outlet to verify it has power. If the outlet is fine, unplug the air compressor and remove the pressure switch cover. Then check the wire connections on the switch and inspect the wires going to the motor. After checking the connections, reinstall the cover and check the operation. If it does not start you will need a volt meter to check the voltage to the motor through the switch. If you have a meter and feel confident checking live voltage, remove the pressure switch cover. Then plug the unit in and turn the switch on. Next turn the meter to check AC voltage and place the meter leads on the black and white wires marked LINE. You should have a reading of 120 volts. If you have this reading, you are getting power to the unit. Next, place the leads on the black and white wires marked LOAD. If you have 120 volts, reading the motor is likely the problem. If you do not have 120 volt reading, I recommend replacing the pressure switch. The parts for the air compressor can be ordered from the following link.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I'm sorry but the motor casing is not available as a separate component nor is the motor assembly available.  We do not have any other source for the part.  

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
