reset button on motor throws and turns motor off.
Strange thing is can run motor contiously as long as it wants and no heat issue or throuwing of motor breaker.
Only when the unit has built maz pressure in tank and shuts off when try to come back on and refill the tank after use it throw the breaker on the motor.
If i then turn the power switch off and back on after just a few seconds it will come back on.
my thinking it is not overheating in that it runs contiouusly as long as bleeding air out.
Not sure what the issue is unless drawing more current on start up casuse tank is not empty and thus more pressure resistance. or perhaps something defective in pressure shut off. Need help my limited knowledge has failed me. thanks
Pete, it could be a number of things including unloader valve failure, start capacitor weak or failing, motor wear causing difficult starts... etc.
Start with the easiest. Drain the tank, start the compressor and make sure that the unloader valve actually unloads the air when the compressor reaches cut out and stops.
