Emglo 55168 Motor Slows Down as Pressure Builds
I have an Emglo 55168 and until recently it ran great. Now, when I turn it on, initially, it builds up pressure and runs just fine. After about 45-60 seconds, the motor starts to slow down and it smells as if the motor or the belt is getting too hot.
The pressure does not build up past 40-50 psi.
I replaced the belt last year. Could the belt be too tight, causing the motor to slow down as the belt heats up? I would think that a belt that was getting warm would allow more flexibility and relieve some of the pressure on the motor.
Can you offer some thoughts? Thank you!
