Coleman hotdog air compressor won't start

by Kevin ANderson
(Angleton, TX)

I have a 8-10 year old air compressor. Today I took it out to start up to air up tires. When I flipped it on, it went real slow and died after 30 seconds or so. Turned it off, tried again, four or five times. I did get it to start and fill the tank once. After it cut off, it would not restart.

I do see the spark inside the casing when it tries to start.

It's unplug, and back in my shed.

Like us, compressors get old, and things don't work the way they are supposed to.
