Just recently, my kobalt 26gal model 37296, when turned on sounds like its being bogged down and shuts off in roughly 10 seconds.


I took off the protective casing and air filter and its definitely making pressure.

Nothing smells hot And everything appears to be working properly, but its like its running on half power, then trips the reset button. Any Ideas? Thank you. its about 5 years old but hasn't had heavy use.

See the troubleshooting page on air compressors that won't start.

Follow the checks.

If yours has an unloader valve check that first to be sure it's working. If no unloader, or a continuous unloader, then you probably want to check the start capacitor, all other conditions being unchanged.
