26 gal. was working fine for a few years, now all of a sudden it isn't.

I have the Kobalt model # 37296-26 gal. and all I use it for is inflating auto tires.


All was well until a week ago; I needed it and when I flipped the on switch, nothing happened. It clicked and then blew the 15 amp breaker. Re-set the breaker and the same thing; over and over. Not sure what to do next.

A good start Mike would be to visit the troubleshooting section on the sitemap page and look at the pages that have to do with air compressors that blow breakers on start up.

After that, add a comment here with specifics about what you found, if anything, and we'll press on.

Cheers,

Bill

Dave, check the specs on the motor. Obtain a new one from any motor supplier that has similar specs, similar footprint, and same motor shaft size.

I don't know where you are in the world, but I would expect that somewhere nearby there is a motor supply house.

If you want to make it even easier, remove your compressor motor (make careful note of the wiring) and then take the old one with you to the motor supply house and ask them to give you the same.
