Belt keeps breaking

by John
(Crown Point, IN)

I replaced the belt and when I started the compressor it ran fine, building pressure to 100psi when it suddenly began making a loud knocking noise and snapped the belt again. Any suggestions other than buy a better quality compressor.

Depends on the belt and compressor.

Are you using the correct belt?

Is the tension correct?

What compressor do you have, and what is the normal cutout?
