Fuse and cap
by: Bill

If you Google the specs found on the side of the fuse, that will find you many sources.

As to the capacitor, have a look here please:

Blowing on-compressor fuse - new compressor
by: Bill

If you are NOT using an extension cord to power the compressor, and the plug into which you are plugging the compressor hasn't got a bunch of other electrical devices pulling power at the same time, and the fuse / breaker in the supply line from the panel is 15 amp and the total run to the compressor plug isn't more than 100', then I would think your compressor compressor motor may have a short in it or elsewhere in the wiring, and, since it's a new Harbor Fright... er Freight compressor, I'd be taking it back for a replacement.

Compressor Fuse

It is the small glass 3amp fuse in the compressor ... housed next to the turn on/off switch. As soon as you turn the switch on the fuse blows before the compressor can do anything ...

Compressor blows fuse

Are you saying, then, that it's the fuse on the compressor that is blowing?

Does not show a model number they seem to refer to it as 1/3 HP 3 gallon model.

3 amp fuse.

I pulled off the top and can't see any loose or misplaced wires that might short something.

What model?

What fuse blows... the one in the house panel?

What is the amperage of that fuse, please?
