I have a dewalt 55146 belt driven compressor. The cooling fan starts and just runs the main motor doesn't start. If I turn it off and on then the cooling fan will start and then 2 secs later the main motor runs fine. It is an intermittent problem. I took the unit apart and cleaned dust out of the motor that didn't help. I checked my belt and that seems to be fine.
OK, Jeff. I tried to find the schematic for the motor, and even though their website shows a drop down menu offering the manual, it never arrives.
I wanted to see how the fan shaft was attached to the motor shaft (if it is) as it is common for a motor to have a shaft at both ends, one connected to the pump, the other to run the fan.
I'll have to rely on other folks to comment on this problem.
