5z404b pumps to 40psi normally then bogs down until it pops breaker.


If it is not power related. I will test the capacitor after sunrise. Assuming it's not power what would be the best bet for my troubleshooting to begin?

Classic check valve symptom. Does the unloader leak air until the tank is empty?

And yes, the run cap is likely the problem, assuming the motor is big enough. (5 HP)
