67708 won't start up

by Eddie Bowab
(Huntsville, Alabama)

Purchased model #67708 compressor. Other than airing tires, blowing out lawn mower filters, and tire rotation....it has been used once to drive roofing nails with nail driver purchased from Harbor Freight. (8 square workshop roof).


When on/off switch is turned on the unit will not start up.

It compresses about twice - then nothing.

After 2 or 3 times re-trying on/off the reset button trips. Resetting accomplishes nothing.......

Oil level is centered to sight glass, as should be; there's no moisture in tank; and, several electrical outlets on different circuits have been tried.

Unit was purchased approximately 2 years ago and has had less than 20 hours of usage.

Can you give me a direction as to what I might try to remedy this situation or what my options are? Also - No extended warranty was purchased with this unit.......Thank you for whatever assistance you may be able to provide me.
