Husky 80 gal compressor popping breaker at cut out
(Santa Fe, Tx )
I have a new (6 week old) 80 gal Husky compressor that is blowing my 30 amp breaker just as the compressor is about to shut off. The compressor will start to run as needed then, just when the tank is at around 150 psi and is about to shut off, the breaker pops. It has worked perfectly for the first 6 weeks.
Husky compressor runs for about 5 seconds then trips the circuit breaker
Husky compressor motor label
I have a Husky 26 Gallon air compressor that trips the circuit breaker after 5 seconds of operation.
The motor is a 5HP Emerson motor. I have replaced the starter capacitor and it still trips the cuircuit. The motor is wired for 120V and is plugged directly into the electrical outlet without using an extension cord. The compressor is about 5 years old...maybe more but was rarely used.
HUSKY COMPRESSOR NEEDS RESETING EVERY TIME
I HAVE A HUSKEY 5.5 HP 26 GALLON DIRECT DRIVE NO BELT THAT WILL RUN AND BUILD UP TO 120 PSI AND SHUT OFF. THATS GOOD BUT WILL NOT START BACK UP EVEN AFTER USING ALL THE AIR. IT TAKES ABOUT THE 20 MINUTES THAT THE STICKER SAYS FOR THE MOTOR TO RESET. I HAVE CHECKED AND THE MOTOR HAS 120 VOLTS. I KNOW THIS IS NOT RIGHT. I CAN TURN THE PUMP GOOD BY HAND, SO I GUESS I NEED A NEW MOTOR?
