HUSKY WL660500AJ air compressor




Bill, my Husky WL660500AJ 22 gal air compressor will not start. Here is what I have done so far:

1: I checked to make sure I have power by directly plugging the unit into the wall socket. NOT POWERING ON

2: I removed the pressure / on off switch unit completely. TANK IS NOW COMPLETELY EMPTY AND OPEN

3: I bypassed the switch and from the power plug I attached BLK TO BLK & WHT TO WHT and GROUND TO GROUND to the motor and STILL NOT POWERING ON

4: I checked and replaced 30amp fused link next to motor, STILL NOT POWERING ON

5: For line items 1-4 I verified the wires ARE HOT!

please help, out of ideas, Thank you!

They sell the set because when the ring goes out, the rest is usually about shot, too.

no start

Assuming it's not just the belt broken, and the caps (if present) check OK, then check the motor brushes. I notice they are a severely overpriced (over $20) spare part.

If they are the problem, you may be able to clean them up enough to get it running again, but they probably will quickly go out again, so order spares.

I suspect the answer to your question will be found in the troubleshooting pages found on this site, Christopher.

It were my compressor, my next check would be the start cap.

See how to check that on the page on this site.
