Start up Issue On A Sanborn Compressor
Hi I have a Sanborn air compressor I bought new about 30 years ago. It has developed a start up problem.
A few years ago it started having this issue only occasionally/ Now it is every time.
It seems to not have enough power to start up, unless it is in a certain position. Almost like if the piston is coming up on compression.
If I turn it over by hand, I can get it to take off when I re energize it. Sometimes this process can take a few tries.
Could it be the belt is not tight enough,weak electric motor or the compressor it self?
