Sounds to me like u do not have it on a big enough circuit, look on the name plate for FLA, this is the amps it pulls to start up, and size ur circuit for that amount.

My compressor suddenly quit cycling what went wrong?


hi there!
there are several factor on cycling failure, most common on it is the pressure switch device,checking on this,plug out or switch off main circuit breaker for compressor, disconnect pressure switch if this is a single phase connection,there are two supply wire coming in and two wire coming out on pressure switch.direct connection of compressor motor on power supply to test if it is cycling manually,after direct connection of motor compressor to power supply w/out pressure switch,switch on for 5 to 10 minutes o build a low [pressure then swict off again,then switch on again even there is a low pressure observe if there is cycling motor running if this done replace pressure switch.if still have same problem motor tripping another case not to cycle bring this to electric motor service center.have a nice day dont forget to fix my rate.

Starts up, runs for 10 seconds sticks and pops circuit breaker


your motor start capacitor on the side case of the motor is bad,get it replaced before you ruin the armature from excessive heat generated from the motor not coming up to speed soon enough and drawing excessive current to try and keep it running

I have a 33 gallon craftsman compressor model #919.167330. If the air is totally out of the compressor and you plug it in, it will build to full pressure and then turn off normally. When you begin to use...


i think you will find there is nothing wrong with the compressor part of this its all down to a faulty motor
if it cant start up the motor the motor will hum at first then the circuit braker pops out? yes???
check your getting full mains power first as if its trying to run on a very long extenshion lead its not getting the full power to start up, and you will need a much heaver lead,,,if its in a plug on the wall, change the capasitor on the motor,,,this is the part that hold a lot of volts to kick start the motor over when it first trys to start,,if this capasitor has droped in holding its charge there wont be enough volts in it to kick start the motor over,,so the motor starts to hum first trying to start but it dont stand a chance of spinning up
so it keeps pulling more and more amps till the braker pops out,,,watch this capasitor it can realy bite you if you tuch the two ends that are live????
the motor has two windings in it,,a start up winding and a running winding,, if its been humming for some time now it could have damaged the start up winding

Which air compressor is better-the rigid twin tank or the emglo twin take?


I think Ridgid has now lifetime warranties. You have to fill out papers and mail them. I have a few Ridgid tools and I love them. So check out the Ridgid, you can't go wrong.

Have rigid twin stack air compressor. Only keeps about 75 psi and keeps running. I do hear air from the exhaust port (seems normal). Haven't used it for a while. Any ideas? Thanks, in advance.


possiably the " reed valves under the head are not closeing off all the way. These may be bent or somehow distorted their tension most of the time from exsesive heat. Good luck
