Compressor not wired, no schematic or instruction in manual

Purchased a Campbell Hausfeld VT6275 compressor from Lowes. No wiring , no instruction on how to. I know it is 240 volt, 15 amp but nothing provided to help me and I prefer to not guess and also prefer to not need to contact electrician.

I was told to use 12-3 wire to my box , but that is it. I have some experience with 110-120 but very limited on the actual wiring of 240 units.

Help please

There is a schematic under the cover of the elecrtrical connection box. Remove the top of the box ( typically one nut on top of the pressure regulator) and look under the cover you removed.

Good Luck

Hi, happy new year! I just purchased the 8 gallon unit from Canadian Tire. I like it , its pretty loud. I let it break in for the required 30 min. Question, Is it common for these compressors to lose a...

When you first brake it in yes as long as its not coming out of a gasket or oil seal. But a little out the tank drain is normal and it should after 3 or 4 uses you should drain the air from the tank each use because it will build up water inside and rust the tank out if you don't.

My compressor fills up fine then air leaks out around the pressure/ on-off switch. I think it is coming from the copper tube coming from the head.

Those are simple compression fittings.A hydraulic repair shop should be able to get you the parts for the repair.A truck or trailer shop would have them too.

Campbell Hausfeld compressor has trouble starting

Sounds like your unloader valve is not releasing pressure in the line to the compressor. When it shuts off after filling up if you do not here the psssht that they make when it is releasing the air in the line to the pump. then the line is still full of pressure which makes it hard for the motor to start. Check your unloader valve.
