Question about Craftsman 3 gal. Air Compressor, 1.5 hp, Horizontal k
I have a two year old Sears Carftsman 3 gallon, 1.5 HP Air Compressor that has worked fine until recently. Now, when I turn the switch on the motor will just hum or buzz and nothing happens. Any suggestions? The motor is oil, with capacitor start. Is this a symptom of a capacitor problem?
YES IT MAY BE THE CAPACITOR . IT COULD ALSO BE THE WIREING IN THE MTR, THE PUNP ITSELF.

Check the oil housing and there should be a plate that can be removed to see the piston rod connecting to the shaft.If dirty oil or low oil level,the piston rod may have overheated and broken,causing it to slide down and JAM the shaft.That will stop the motor from turning.Have rags handy,because the oil will come out when the plate is removed
