Husky 26 gal air compressor won't start, blows CB

by Mike

Model # vt631503aj compressor would start slow and dim the lights in the garage. Now it just hums and trips the CB. I changed out the start capacitor with no change. With the belt off and the switch on, I can spin the pulley to get the motor going, but it appears weak. Any ideas?

Nothing succeeds like success - good to hear you got it fixed.

bad capacitor

There's two capacitors on the motor. I changed the larger one. I had a capacitor from an old pool heater. Works great

capacitor?

If the RUN cap is bad, that could do it.
