Question about Chicago Pneumatic Air Tools & Compressors
When I turn it on it runs about a second and dies. When I put my handover the hole that sucks in air it runs fine
Most compressors have an in-tank check valve that prevents pressure in the tank from loading the compressor and forcing the motor into overload. The pressure switch also has an unloader that releases pressure in the system so that the motor will not strain when it recycles. When you restrict the intake, the compressor is unloaded thus the motor will continue to run. There may be a problem with the checkvalve or the motor may have a weak or failed capacitor. Some meters have a capacitor test to check if the capacitor is the problem. Reject the capacitor it it tests out of range more than ten percent. enjoy
