When finding a home for any compressor you need to take a few things into consideration. Extention leeds can create a voltage drop. for a standard compressor you will need at least a 40 amp trip switch at fuse board the draw of first start up could be a higher rating than your current breaker

Most people recommend replacing the motor capacitor in this situation, since a faulty cap will reduce the starting torque. But in my case the check valve was the culprit - there was too much back pressure on the head.

Why does my compressor trip the breaker after filling with air


1 of 2 things #1 the pressure releive valve that lets the pressure of the pump when it kicks off is stuck closed so what is happening is when the compressor kicks back on its under a load and trips braker. #2 your braker is to small for the compressor.

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

not likely as your pressure switch is pneumatic, What else operates on that same breaker, perhaps replace the breaker as they sometimes get "tired"

hope this helps

Second time compressor tries to fill tank blows braker


The compressor pobably has a faulty unloader valve which bleeds the pressure off that is left in the cylinder when the compressor turns off . The unloader valve allows the compressor to start the next on cycle with the cylinder empty. Trying to start the compressor with the cylinder under pressure causes too much current draw and trip the circuit breaker.

Compressor not kicking on


is the outdoor fan on the condenser running? if it is then the compressor has burned out, or the capacitor that starts the compressor may be at fault. Check circuit breakers first to see if they are tripped. If there is a breaker tripped reset it once. If it trips again call a pro to check it out.

Breaker relay tripping out


If the unloading valve trips , which i think is the safety valve that tells me the compressor is pumping up past its maximum allowed pressure. that black switch should be the overload switch. check the amps of the wires going to the motor while its running and then look at the name plate of the motor to see the maximum amount of amps that the motor is allowed to draw.

YOUR COMPRESSOR MUST UNLOAD WHEN IT SHUTS OFF SO IT DOESNT START UNDER A LOAD THE NEXT TIME. MOST SMALL COMPRESSORS UNLOAD WITH A VALVE ON THE SIDE OF THE PRESSURE SWITCH.REPAIR VALVE OR REPLACE THE PRESSURE SWITCH (KNOW PSI OR TAKE SWITCH WITH YOU).YOUR COMPRESSOR IS STARTING WITH AIR PRESSURE ON TOP OF THE PISTON. CHECK VALVE COULD BE BAD BUT IT SHOULD BE BLOWING AIR ALL THE TIME.
