Kobalt K7580V2 - unloader valve? Does this sound right?
Can't find the unloader valve on the spec sheets. I have a Kobalt K7580V2 that builds one tank fine then overloads/ trips breaker during start up of next tank.It's not consistent, may run fine for 3 hours then starts acting up again. Sounds like as I read it maybe unloader valve. Does this sound right?
Randy, sure sounds like a sticky unloader. If you have a Condor brand pressure switch, instead of being on the outside where you can get at it, the unloader mechanism is inside the switch, and bleeds out the bottom or the side.
compresser wont start, unless shaken

my comperssor wont start unless i shake it a little, as if there was a loose wire. it will run for a few seconds then shut off. any ideas? i opend cover and there was no loose wires
Shaken...? Hmmmm? Now that's a good one.
I'm going to take a flyer, since you have not been able to see any loose wires, and suggest that your pressure switch might be wonky.
Since Kobalt has a gazillion models of air compressors, I don't know which you have, nor how it is configured.
