    HOW MUCH WATER. DID THE MOTOR OR PUMP GO UNDERWATER? MOST COMPRESSORS FLOAT-TYPICALLY UPSIDE DOWN - BUT THEY FLOAT. YES, WATER CAN DAMAGE BUT THEY SOMETIMES WORK FINE AFTER DRYING OUT.

I did not drain the tank on my 80 gal comp now trying to drain I only get a trickle out of the drain line. Help


Take drain plug completely out of bottom of the tank and remove the outlet plug on the side of tank. pour 1 gallon of clean water into tank and stir up sediment. . Replace the side plug and start compressor , keep this up until drain water runs clear not orange. Then re install everything and check tank pressure and for leaks.

I have a 3 gal/ 1HP Craftsman air comp. When I plug it in and turn it on, I get the sound of current getting to the motor but it does not start. A failed Starting capacitor?


Could be, do you have a capacitor checker? It sounds like you have a compressor locked up. Do you have oil in the compressor? If the compressor is new I would take it back and see if it is still under warranty. before I did any thing to it.....

Check air compressor in the garage. Took it inside and plug it in. Nothing. What would possibly cause it to work one second, then not the next?


you have to start at the beginning. your outlet, cord, motor breaker, the on off switch on the comp that trips the comp off at a set pressure. if you know how to use a volt ohm meter that would be good to check the cord and breaker. some time the pressure switch contacts will arc and burn a little and then don't make good contact.
