Coleman 5 HP - 27 Gal compressor motor became noisy
(Great Falls, VA)
Suddenly, and without prior issues (except that tank had slow pressure leak but no audible discharge), the motor became noisy, runs rough and trips circuit breaker after 15 - 20 seconds or so.
If this was a car engine I would describe the sound as if there was a misfiring cylinder. I removed the cylinder head. Cylinder sleeve has no scratches and piston appears intact.
This is the limit of my ability to deal with problem. Any and all comments (except on my ignorance) are greatly appreciated
5hp coleman powermate 27 gallon starts but cuts off
Runs about 10 seconds, then shuts off for a minute or two, kicks back in and runs for about 5 seconds. have replaced both cap. Also motor gets hot to the touch after a couple of cycles. its a direct drive and does turn freely, and on a 30 amp breaker with no extension cord.
