6 month old Puma just cut off.

by Lamar Bradley

It's only 6 months old....5 HP three cyl single stage 60 gallon.

It just stopped last night, appears to have no power.

I will check the pressure switch and the power box this morning to see where the power stops.

I did notice that it was very hot after it quit, tried to push the red reset button on the motor but it was not off.

Anyone had this problem that might save me some time?

Can't find a drawing on this, and you don't say exactly how it failed.

If it was actually running and quit, then maybe it will reset now. When they're still hot they can feel like not tripped, but actually is.

If it was stopped and trying to refill, then caps and/or check valve(s?)

I think the first thing (mainly because it's so new) is just go over it and look for loose/burned wires and go from there.
