Compressor will not run properly

My compressor tries to run but it rotates slowly and then shuts off, I can take the tank line off and it will run?


Sometimes the first time use it will build up and then it will start doing the above mentioned and will not build back up or start automatically.

Dan, knowing what compressor make and model you have makes it easier to help.

However, if the motor has capacitor(s), start there. See how to test them on this site.

Otherwise, check the troubleshooting section. Most problems are common to the type of compressor you have.
