919.165580 pops circuit breaker when started

I have a Craftsman 919.165580 compressor. Until recently it worked great, not when I start it, it pops the circuit breaker.


I can hear the compressor start but is really sounds slow and then the breaker pops.

I have checked the air filter and it is clean.

Don't know where to go from here.

Looking at the troubleshooting pages on this site, particularly those that related to why air compressors sometimes pop breakers or fuses on start up would be a good place to go, Ron.

I can think of two issues that would cause the compressor symptoms you relate, and both are covered on those pages.

If you do the checks and still have a questions do add a comment here, K?
