I have a 220 volt air compressor that blows one side of a two-pole 40 amp breaker and will not run.
I have a kobalt. M : k758ov2.
7.5 Hp Peak 5.0 Hp running
208-230 volt Single phase
the air compressor is kicking off one side of a2 pole E 40 amp breaker. after reading all postings I have drained the tank to 0 p.s I and turned on the compressor and it just kicks but will not run. check the breaker again and only the one side is kickoff. like you electricity scares me. I have put breakers in my main box install new circuits in the garage but I don't know anything about the electric motor. the motor is a century AC motor. it has 2 capacitors on top and a reset button that is not popped. I'm hoping it's a capacitor and would like to know how to test a capacitor. please help sincerely Bret
How to test a capacitor page is found on this site, Bret.
