Power Pal running hot
by: Bill

Be good to know what model number you have. Information on this brand is pretty scarce.

If this a new symptom, and you are not running the compressor for a longer period each use, and nothing has changed regarding the power supply to the compressor, then my guess would be a mechanical wear in the pump back-loading the motor, or, a run capacitor that's failing.

Assuming the electric motor has a run cap, see the page on this site about how to check it.
