Craftsman 919.167312 arcing breaker
(Hendersonville, TN, USA)
The Craftsman model # 919.167312, 2 hp, 30 gall, 150 PSI vertical will not start whether there is 100 PSI or O.
The pressure switch arcs severely when manually turning on.
If I leave the switch on the house breaker trips.
I replaced the pressure switch thinking it wasn't making good contact since the contacts were burned up some. That didn't fix it.
The same severe arcing occurred with the new switch when I turned it on as if something is shorted.
From reading online some my guess is the capacitor now but I don't want to spend more money on it without knowing for sure.
I love this compressor and have had it for about 10 years and it has been SOLID working inside the house with nail guns and outside the house plenty on my car and truck through the years.
Please help me to diagnose and recommend part/part number.
