My compressor keep turning off!
(Red Bluff,CA USA)
When I start up my 47065 it runs for a short time and then turns off and I have to wait for a while when I hear a click and then punch the red button on the side of the compressor that had popped out. It will run a short time and do it again. I must keep doing that to get the pressure up so I can use it. Help!
47065 not run more than 1 or 2 minutes before tripping
My 47065 will run for about a minute or two and then shut off. If I wait and then press the black (circuit breaker?) button it will run again for another minute or two. If I bypass the "circuit breaker" it will continue running to 120PSI as it's supposed to. I have checked the amperage draw while doing this and it's near 17 amps that the unit is drawing. The unit is rated for 14.6 amps continuous. Off the top of my head I'm guessing the brushes in the motor need replacing. Does this sound correct to you? And if so, are the brushes easily replaceable on this motor. Any idea what size and spec brushes I need and where I can find them? Thanks.

Wayne, as a comment here, please tell us about your compressor power supply. Extension cord used? Power bar? Amperage of the circuit breaker for socket you plug the 47065 compressor into? How many other items are pulling power from the same circuit... this type of stuff.
If the reset button you refer too is the thermal overload protector for the compressor motor, then by resetting it too frequently, you may be causing the motor to overheat to the point of damage.
That your compressor motor is over heating suggests a power issue, at least, let's rule that out first.
If the power supply to the compressor is clean, then it were mine, I'd be checking the run capacitor next. You can see how on the page on this site.
