air compresser kicks breaker when shut off on automatics
HJ300200 sometimes will pump up to 150, other times only 40.
by Ed Sapp
Campbell Hausfield HJ300200 sometimes will pump up tp 150, other times only 40. It holds pressure when left off. Is there a check valve where the braided line comes off the compressor motor that could stop the air from getting to tank. Would the piston still be since it will pump to 150, maybe just bad valve reeds. It is only a year or so old and not used a lot.
Model HJ300200 portable compressor shuts down before cut out PSI

I have the 200psi upright. About a yr old.
This problem started within 6 mo of buying it. Should have taken it back but didn't.
I can turn it on and it runs until it starts to get warm then dies. I can wait a little while with the power switch off and then it will start again.
Takes forever repeating this process to get it to fill and shut off.
Then sometimes it won't auto start when pressure drops if it was just running.
HJ300200 circuit breaker trips after 1 minute of use
Campbell Hausfeld HJ300200 will run for a minute or two and then stop.
Turning power switch off for a minute and then on restarts the pump, but shortly after it stops again.
It takes 4-5 cycles to fully pressurize the tank to 200psi.
I have it plugged into a dedicated 20A circuit, directly into wall outlet.
I changed the pressure switch, with no change to the problem.
I don't see any parts on the diagram other than the motor that would seem to fix it.
For the price of a new motor, I'd be tempted just to buy a new compressor.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
