triple stack tripping breaker at 45 psi

Hi Bill, It was running up to 125psi just fine, then started stopping at 45-60 psi and tripping the breaker. after waiting for it I try to reset and it hums but wont turn the engine over. I'm running it on 20 amp circuit. no cords. I also adjust the tank pressure control knobs to max psi, then minimum psi and several points between;all have same result.


thanks Dave

Already covered on the troubleshooting pages, Dave.

See the one about why air compressors are tripping breakers.

Based on what you've written, and the fact that you're on a 20 amp circuit, I'd be guessing it's a capacitor issue first.
