Husky 60 Gal. upright motor wont run - get new?

I have my Husky air compressor from Home Depot hooked up to a relay.


I replace a blown fuse in the contact and the motor hums very loud and does not run.

I checked the caps and they are good.

I think the motor is dead.

I don't use this a lot. I've only had it for a couple of years.

If it is the motor where is a good place to get a replacement?

Every where I look the price is almost the price of the entire unit. Bummer.

Can you turn the sheave on the pump manually? (power off, of course)

If so, then recheck the caps and wiring to the caps - sometimes it can shake loose.

If that's ok, then check the brushes. I've had at least one early failure, probably due to bad brushes to start with.

Let us know what you find, please, and good luck.
