Coleman Powermate cp0401110 Tripping Breakers
(Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada )
I have a 4hp, 11 gallon Coleman Powermate Handyman, model # cp0401110.
Compressor keeps tripping breaker.
It is the portable kind with two wheels and handle.
It runs on 120v, no extension cord.
The motor runs for 5-10 seconds and trips breaker.
I unhooked motor/compressor from tank and it still trips breaker.
The unit seems to turn quite free.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Good post, Todd. Based on what you've written, my next check would be the start capacitor. See the page on capacitor checking under troubleshooting.
