central pneumatic owner's manual doesn't cover fuse info?

I just got a 3 gal central pneumatic hot dog air compressor and the fuse keeps burning out after 30 mints of use. Should I return it for another or is this characteristic of this model?

Central Pneumatic fuse blowing
by: Bill

Jvasquez, I don't know the model of your Central Pneumatic air compressor, and there are so many, I would guess from what you have written that you are exceeding the duty cycle of your compressor, it overheats, and blows the fuse.

You need to be careful to match up the capacity of the air compressor to supply air with the demand of the air tool you are using.

Too small an air compressor leads to many issues.

See the page on duty cycle for details about that, and, if the compressor is relatively new, you may be able to get some help from the store where you bought it.
