Your compressor blows breaker or fuses? Is it a compressor electrical issue? Here is where you can ask or find out!

Please note I have a healthy respect for electricity. I know that if I am well grounded 120 VAC can kill me. I also know that 220 VAC will finish me quite quickly if I am not very careful.

Folks, if you are working on the electrical part of your air compressor, don’t take any risks. Make sure that the power supply is off!
