3 Gallon Mastercraft blowing bus fuse

(NL, Canada)

compressor just died on me replaced the fuse and blew it again immediately, brought in in to the house to eliminate possibility of bad plug in in my shed with same result. Motor moves freely turning by hand, no obvious signs of loose connections burnt wires etc. 3gallon masterfraft, takes 3amp bus fuse.

Is this the discontinued one?

1/3 HP? Is there a model # on it?

Seems they're problematic.

Anyway, no manual online, so can you tell what sort of motor it has? Brushes?

Aside from that, check for pinched wires anywhere they aren't supposed to be.

The fuse blows instantly, or after it tries to run? I.e., does it make any noise other than the fuse blowing?
