Air-Force AF14/150S Fixed :)
by: Wull.

Hi fixed and happy

spoke to a fellow after I had replaced the stop check valve as it was my first concern but still the same tripping at 2 bar an so on

the kind gentleman loaned me a electric meter to check the current at the source an it was blowing the trip at just 7 amps and just above 8 amps on third trip so was told my reset switch was faulty

replaced it an low an behold the compressed reached the 10 bar with out fault happy days ....Many thanks to yourself an all who use this site ...Wull.

Could be the breaker is going bad, or maybe a run cap.

I'd check the cap(s) and the current, if you can.

(you can get an AC ammeter for pretty cheap if you look around)

Good luck and let us know how you make out, please.
