Hi Ruben. I don't always suspect the compressor motor when there is a compressor problem.

Why not use a comment here to tell me what is or is not happening with your air compressor, and then we can try to figure out if it is the motor or not?

airmaster twin wiring problem
by: Stuart

Hi Bill, I have been given an airmaster tiger 14/60 that was constantly blowing fuses, someone had taken the motor off and disconnected the wires to the block connector(capacitors and thermal overload etc), it was immediately apparent that the pistons were seized so I stripped it down and one had been running with no filter and was full of crud after cleaning it is moving perfectly and I presume the motor will be fine. Please could you show me a picture of the wiring or a drawing?
Thank you in advance, Regards Stuart.
