HT1503TP motor stopped running

I have Model HT1503TP it's 07/11 year made 3 gal 1.5 hp. 155 psi max

This has been a wonderful portable compressor, a bit loud but none the less very useful & has had really no issues to speak of. Until today it just started to make this stalling type noise & then quit.

I shut it off & it will not turn back on as far as the motor goes.

The orange light in the power switch comes on & I thought I saw a tiny bit of what could of smoke or dust come out of the plastic cowling by what looks to be a fan.

I figure the cost of repair unless under warranty is more than buying a new one. I figured I would see what you had to say in regards to repair first. Please advise.

Thanks mk

HT1503TP ?? Is this the right number?
by: Doug in

Sounds like maybe a brush problem and/or a capacitor.

Whether you fix depends on what your time is worth and perhaps whether there is a good electric motor shop near you.
