Central pneumatic compressor starts and stops
I just bought a brand new central pneumatic 2.5hp 21 gal compressor.
Attempted to break it in and the motor would turn over but not run and kept tripping reset button.
Eventually it did start but only after I opened the valve on the tank. Odd??
Well it ran fine for the 30 min break-in period.
I change the oil like required and turned it back on. It got to 40psi and tripped the reset button. I reset it and it only hummed and tripped again and again. After it di this a few times I decided maybe it had gotten too hot and hadn't had adequate time to cool. I let it set for 30 min and tried again, same thing... Got to 40psi and tripped reset. then hummed every time I reset it. Someone help.
