Question about Air Tools & Compressors

Air compressor trips breaker

Had 220 outlet installed for an Ingersoll Rand Model SS3-E (older model) air compressor (230 volt/15 amp). Plugged in air compressor, it ran for a few seconds (maybe 6 or 7 sec max), then tripped the breaker. Tried several times, but it tripped the breaker each time. Its been sitting for about a year without use, so I don't know if this has anything to do with it. The outlet was installed by a licensed electrician, so I'm pretty sure it was installed correctly. He installed a 40 amp breaker as well. I don't have an owner's manual nor can I find any information on the internet so I don't have a lot of additional information.

Trying to rewire my ingersoll rand air compressor motor, psi switch motor starter, need some kind of diagram, it has a 5hp single phase 220


Please check out the Web Site Below. It is a Quick Start manual for IR Compressors.

It should have everything you need. It DOES NOT Show you any wiring connections AT the motor.

Hope this helps....Jim

I have a new ingersol rand 80 gal 7.5hp air compressor 230volt single phase and was wondering what size breaker it needs to be put on


Your owners manual spec sheet should give you that answer. However since that unit at max loads should pull 32 to 35 amps I recommend 1.5 times max amps. So approximately a 50 amp breaker. This all based on standard wire size and length of wire run. Also when checking your voltage at load you should be showing 235 to 240 volts.
