central pneumatic model 67501 . i just put a new capacitor on it . it did not help . first it run for appox 10 seconds then quit . tried the reset button immediately it seemed as if there was no resistance it did nothing . waited ten minutes pushed reset button again it clicked and the compressor run for appox 10 more seconds . no extension cord . this is the exact same problem i had before i changed the capacitor .
Mike, did you test to see if the cap was failing before you change it out?
If the reset button doesn't seem to connect, it could be that the motor temp is still too high for it to "catch".
From the sounds of it, and assuming the new cap is working, you motor may be just too tired.
