To be sure you don't get 'bit' by the capacitor, remove the power from the circuit and expose the capacitor (s) connections then short across them with an insulated screwdriver to ensure that they are discharged. Some electrical 'purists' that know all there is to know about electricity say you should NEVER short a capacitor....but that's a bunch of baloney. Who cares if you shorten its life expectancy a little bit. Its better than shocking the fire outta yourself. Some capacitors leak down quite quickly but you never know for sure without shorting across the terminals.

The accepted norm on capacitor start motors is to use a capacitor with NO MORE than 10% variance above or below the original capacitors rating. Try wwwgraingers.com for replacement capacitors or ereplacements.com as another choice. Or possibly McMaster-Carr.

I have a Cleman 4 Gallon, 1.75 HP, Powermate air


When mine hums and trips, it is one of two things, Not warm enough, only does this when it is cold out, and 2 would be not enough juice, I have to have a 20 amp breaker or it doesn't run. And if I use a cord, it has to big. The slightest drop in amperage and it will not run, yours might have the same problem, mine is only 1 1/2 HP. It draws some 16 amps at start up and then idles down to 13 to run. A 15 amp breaker, forget it. Cold out, forget it. It wasn't just mine though, we did a house last winter and made one bathroom heated with a gas heater with 3 compressors in there just to keep them warm, there was no room for us. Hope this helps.
