motor issue

The three and a half horsepower 110 volt electric motor runs for one to two seconds and then blows a fuse. I tried replacing both capacitors and its still doing the same thing. This motor was recently rebuilt so its has not many hours on it

Motor blowing fuse

What is the amperage of the fuse, Jack?

How far is the run of the supply line from the panel to the socket into which you are plugging your compressor?

Are you using an extension cord?
