1.7 h.p. compressor motor giving me fits
I have a 1.7 h.p. motor giving me fits.
When it first starts from empty it will run up to about 70 psi. It will not come on again unless I turn off power and wait about ten minutes.
When I power it up, it will run up to about 100 psi and cut off again.
This is a 150 psi tank.
I have checked the caps, they are good.
I have bypassed the on/off switch and the pressure sensor.
I am running the motor straight off the wall plug.
I would like to check the thermal overloads. They seem to be internal in the motor. Is there any way to check them without disassembling the motor?
