Kobalt Air Compressor Stalls at 20 Psi
Hello. I have had a Kobalt 2 hp 30 gallon air compressor for only a few months now and and I think the motor might be broken.
When I turn it on it the lights dim and it hums.
It gets to about 20 psi where it stalls for a few seconds until the circuit breaker trips.
I can turn the belt manually and cycle the piston pretty easily.
The unloader valve seems to be working fine and it releases pressure when I turn the compressor off. If anyone has any advice or has had the same problem, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Here is a link to the compressor model. I should note that it has a slightly different handle, but I'm pretty sure everything else is the same.
