921.164710 shutting down

Steven, when you turn it off and back on again, do you have to wait for a while, or, when the compressor shuts off, will it start again immediately?

Are you using an extension cord now, and weren't before?

See the page on checking capacitors on this site, and check yours. This compressor has a start and a run capacitor.

Please advise findings.
