Model pafb5025 11.9 cfm runs briefly/pops circuit breaker


When I plug in air compressor it will run sluggishly for 3-4 seconds then pops circuit breaker, whether in manual or automatic start mode. Any ideas where to look? Rather try to fix it myself rather than take it somewhere for service. Appreciate any suggestions you might have.
