Husky 20 gallon air compressor not working properly
Husky 20 gallon air compressor
compressor is 3 years old.
when you plug it in (directly to wall) it starts and makes it to about 70psi (it is rated for 150psi) then just stops.
i listen for air leaking and there is none.
i have taken the plastic shroud of the unit to get to the motor and wires. when it stops, i put a volt meter on the pressure check valve (located directly after the on/off switch), on the out going side it reads 115v. after that the wire dissappers in the motor and i can't find it.
if you unplug the compressor and wait, sometimes it will come on again and continue to climb in pressure. (yesterday i got it up to 125 before it shut down)
i bled some pressure off to see if it would start back up and it didn't. I'm pretty sure i heard the unloader valve release a little pressure when the motor shuts off.
not sure what to do next......i could find a 'button' to push for a thermal overload.
the only else i can see on the unit is 2 capacitors and what ever the bronze colored thing is in the picture i attached
thanks for the help!!!!!!
