Mod. 919.167310 6hp 30 gal upright craftsman
When I turn it on some times comes or runs fine.
But most of the time it tries to run but seems to not have enough power to run and blows breaker.
Now I can turn it on and off and on and off and on and some times this will get it running. When its running it works fine. Its just getting it going that's the problem.
I bought it from a pawn shop and on price tag it said
(SHUTS OFF) .
IVE TAKEN OFF THE MOTOR COVER AND FOUND THAT SOMEONE HAD FORCED THE PLASTIC CAPACITOR AND STARTING SWITCH HOUSING AND IT WASN'T BOLTED ON AND WAS JUST LAYING LOOSELY OUT OF PLACE. TRIED TO REPOSITION IT BACK BEST I COULD FIGURE. DIDN'T HELP THE PROBLEM. PLZ HELP WITH PROBLEM OF WHY SOMETIMES IT WORKS AND MOSTLY IT DOESN'T.
