    A two horsepower motor at 115v will draw lots more amps to start then settle at maybe 15-18 amps. Most homes are not wired properly to power this compressor. If the wire that feeds your plug has a long run from the main switch box, you will have the problem that you describe. The best option would be to rewire your compressor for 220v. At the higher voltage your compressor will most likely only draw about 8 - 12 amps and cost less to operate. If your compressor cannot be wired for 220, or 220v not available maybe your could exchange for 1 1/2 hp at 115v.

After the tank fills with air for the first time and air is left out, the commpressor pump will kick on and kick off the outlet curcuit breaker. Why would it do this?

Have toro 418 snow thrower prime it and starts but immediately stalls can only keep running if I keep pushing the primer button what's wrong

The fuel pickup tube in the carburetor is probably clogged. I don't know how handy you are, but you have to remove the carb, disassemble it and blow out all the orfices with compressed air and possibly run thin wires into the tubes and holes. Good Luck! the last time I had to do this was in the middle of a snowstorm!

How do you clean the fan blades?

If it is not easily accessible, Id recommending taking it outside and blow it out with a air compresser that has a blow spout attachement on it, if that is not available, most towns have tire changing companies that sell used ties, most of these places would be willing to blow it out for you for a few dollars im sure, sometimes thinking outside the box can save you some money on the long run.
Hope this helps.

My Wii system will not read any discs I try. Is there a fix for this?

Sometimes the laser inside of the Wii can get dust on it that would keep it from reading. You can try and get a canned of compressed air and blow into it or just give it a good old fashioned blow.

They also sell these laser cleaners for the Wii:

Thanks and please rate if this helps you! :)

What is wrong when your ignore and meter fuss keeps blowing

Not 100% on the first part of the question...but fuses blowing makes me think faulty wiring is to blame. Check for frayed or damaged wires.

Air conditioning blowing fuss

Faulty clutch/coil assembly. If there was zero pressure in the system the low and high pressure sensors would not allow the clutch to engage, just to clarify.

Fresh air 2.0: Unit cycles on and off.

The problem is dust or moisture on one or more of the circuit boards, in the bottom of the unit. The problem is usually caused by resetting the cleaning reminder without actually cleaning the machine. ;-) It hasn't been difficult for me to solve so far. Remove the filter. Remove the two screws that hold on the plate where the rear switch is located. The wires are long enough that they don't need to be removed from the switch. Use a blow dryer or dry compressed air to blow off the circuit boards. ****Keep your face out of the way!!! Be sure not to get the blow dryer too close or too hot. If you have a Warm setting, use that. Good luck!
