Airmate 100l 230v won't reach full pressure 10 bar

Hello my Airmate compressor gets to about 6.5 bar then the motor labours and stalls with a humming noise.


Up to 6 bar it works fine and when the pressure drops to 3 bar the motor happily starts up to re-pressurise.

It has good oil in it and there are no leaks. It is a twin piston.

What model?
by: Doug in s.d.ca.

There are a few...

Still, on the assumption you've not changed anything since it was working properly (it was, at some point, yeah?) then the first guess is a bad capacitor.

Check that/them and let us know model number.

HTH and good luck.
