FP200000AJ compressor kicks in but stops before its full again

after i use my nail gun, the compressor kicks in but stops before its full again and the reset button has to be reset only after it cools for a minute or two.


When using my roofing nail gun the compressor will not fully fill again without the reset button going off, I have to wait a minute or two to reset it. this is a continuous thing now. It never used to do this and it seems to get very hot it is a 4hp, 2 gallon twin tank, FP200000AJ

Compressor motor goes off on overheat
by: Bill

That your motor goes off on thermal suggests either a backload increase, causing the motor to work harder, or something awry in the power supply.

Assuming that it's a 20 amp breaker circuit you have your compressor plugged into, and you are using the OEM power supply cord, and if nothing else suspicious (weird sounds - compressor odor - then I would hazard a guess that your run capacitor is failing.

See how to check the run capacitor on the page on this site.

How long is the extension cord to your compressor when you are using it, please?
