SOURCE: need to replace drain valve

The "welded nut" is the pipe fitting into which the drain valve or drain plug is screwed. It's usually brass and the valve or plug can be obtained through Sears or possibly and good harwarde store. Be sure to use pipe sealing compound or teflon tape on the threads when you re-install the valve or plug.

NOTE - THE AIR MUST BE DRAINED FROM THE TANK BEFORE REMOVING THE VALVE OR PLUG. ALSO, POWER SHOULD BE DISCONNECTED FROM THE COMPRESSOR!

SOURCE: air compressor fills, but slows down as the pressure builds

sounds like you need a new check valve which should be somewhere between the compressor outlet piping,tubing,etc and the tank which prevents the air in tank to back feed to the compressor which would cause hard starting and could damage the motor easy way to check is when you shut off the compressor with some air in the tank if the check valve is bad it would continue to bleed air out out the unloader valve .the unloader valve on your unit is most likely part of the pressure switch when the unit shuts of it should only bleed down the pressure in the pump so it would make it easy to start when needed hope i didn't confuse you

SOURCE: Air compressor that trips my circuit breaker

Most garage curcuits are 15 amp GFI plugs and they won't run most compressors. Drain all of the air out of the tank and see if it runs. If so then you are going to have to add a 20 amp plug for your pump.

You compressor is listed as being oil free. The only liquids that could possibly leak out of the motor (if still from factory condition) is black substance from overheated capacitor/s or grease from a failing bearing. Remove capacitor covers and check for failed cap. Motor bearings will become noisy before failure. Capacitors are available from motor repair shops and many times on ebay. Replace with same uf rating and same or higher voltage. Some caps are larger /smaller with same reading (notice size so cap cover will fit). Good luck

the start capacitor on the motor body is weak,the motor needs this component to over come the air pressure when cycling to re-build the low air pressure,change both the start and run capacitors when doing the start because the other run capacitor is just as old and it will soon fail

Hi there. Plug your compressor in as close to your circuit box as you can on a circuit that is dedicated to that outlet

What is happening is this. You have a 15 amp circuit and a 15 amp draw on your compressor. No wiggle room at all. If you need to get the air a long ways use air hose and never an extension cord. Joe

Compressor won't sstay running and trip breaker


You gave a lot of information, but you didn't say if it worked when free wheeling. If not, I would suspect the inertia switch. If it is working, you should hear it click when the motor is winding down after being shut off, at least when free wheeling. A 20 amp breaker will certainly handle a 15 FLA motor, even on startup. They don't trip at 20 amps exactly, especially on a simple overload. Even at twice the rated amperage, it can take several minutes to trip it. They will trip quickly on a dead short, however, or a severe overload. I doubt the windings are shorted or it either wouldn't work (start windings) or would run at a slower speed with the inertia switch constantly tripping in and out with it coasting while tripped in (i.e., accelerate, coast, accelerate, coast, etc.)
