Model 919 165 140 year 2000 30 gallon tank motor k56a67823


Runs a few seconds then trips breaker. I bought for a hundred bucks n think I got scammed. It's plugged into heavy duty extension cord. In garage.

I think it's capacitor. Looks old. Replacing it.

Any other suggestions. It's on a heavy duty extension cord.

Will plug directly into wall after replaced part.

Help me please. Will update.

12 gauge wire ain't bad, but the other question about it is how long?

12 gauge over 50' in one thing, over 200', for example, is another.

Service panel breaker or on the motor?

How heavy is extension and how long?

Looking forward to what happens - sounds like you're on the right track.
