My 95386 motor turns on for 10 seconds and then turns off?


My compressor will come on and the turn off.

It was working fine 3 weeks ago. Now the motor turns on for 10 seconds and then turns off.

I checked the oil, it was a little low, I do not know if I just need to put oil in it .

I will wait for your reply before going further. please help !!!

Hi Pernell.

I need a bit more info, please.

You say the motor turns on for 10 seconds, then shuts off. Do you know what is turning it off?

For example, is it the pressure switch clicking off and shutting the power down? If that is happening, that suggests the switch itself is pooched.

When it runs for that 10 seconds, does it build any pressure in the tank at all?

Try pulling the plug, dumping all the air out of the tank, closing the tank drain, and then starting your air compressor again. Any change?

Please post your response here as a comment so I can follow the thread and we can help figure out what is going on with your Central Pneumatic air compressor.

If how to size a motor pulley, we have a guide with a worked example on our site!
