Question about Porter Cable Cable 135 PSI, 15 Gal. Oil - Free Horizontal Compressor CPF4515
My compressor does not come on when the on/off switch is turned on. For whatever reason, it just stopped running. It is approximately two years old. Should I attempt repair or send it out or does anyone know what the problem might be?
135psi pan cake builds about 20 pounds then kicks out (actually blows electrical breaker) like faulting to a dead short. Re-set breaker and compressor will build another 20 pounds and repeat the same event. One can build 80 pounds or more pressure but not the way one might want to running and resetting a breaker every 20 pounds.
Have eliminated the power feed line, the switch relay, and the regulator. If power is applied direct to the moter it will run the same way suugesting the motor or dead shorting. Wghat can be done? What about the two cans and over load switch inside the moter cover end plate? Your help is appreciated as this is a fine compressor and pump and motor works freely, just dropping out after 20 pounds run generation and nothing seems hot to the touch or even warm.

Check the pressure switch, they can become stuck in the open position. You can jump it to see if it is functioning or use a multimeter if you have one. Assuming that you've oiled and taken care of it it is unlikely that it simly quit, but that could happen... check across the poles of the motor for continuity which will tell you if the electric motor is blown. ALso make sure the compresor is not seized...
