Good luck on this one. I own 2 jobmate compressors, one I bought and used very little before it blew apart and another a freind gave me to use for parts. Guess what the same part failed on both and I know of at ;east three more that also failed the same way.

I gave up trying to deal with Canadian Tire and Jobemate and junked them, as though they weren't junk to begin witn. You get what you pay for. I have a new Hausefield compressor and it is fantastic.

Hi,I have a travel trailer 37ft. Problem with my ac, the fan starts good but my compressor does not kick on. My next door neighbour says it's the compressor that is done. Could you help me?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Motor Trouble Cause Diagnostic Procedure Repair Procedure Electrical Power is Off Check that all service switches for the equipment are in the "on" position.
Check for voltage at the pump motor or pump controls. If no voltage is found, check for voltage at the electric panel.
If power is on to the building, check fuse or circuit breaker serving the electric motor that won't run.
Check for local reset button on the motor (popped out = off )
Check for other power reset or power off buttons such as an access door compartment safety switch that turns off power to the equipment (found on A/C blower compartment doors)
Turn on "off" switches.
Replace bad fuse. Reset circuit breaker; if necessary replace bad circuit breaker.
Let hot electric motor cool down, then push in its reset button.
Be sure all safety interlock switches such as on compartment doors are depressed and that the doors are securely shut. Replace a bad safety switch.

CIRCUIT BREAKER FAILURE
ELECTRIC PANEL INSPECTION
Blown fuse, tripped breaker Replace fuse or breaker - does the pump run and keep running normally? Be sure proper breaker or fuse size in ampacity is installed - ELECTRIC PANEL INSPECTION Low voltage to the motor Check with VOM at the pressure control switch or at the motor wiring Be sure the proper size of wire is used for the ampacity and length of circuit; Test for low voltage to the building. Loose, improper, or broken motor wire Check wiring against the motor installation manual diagram, check all connections for tightness, shorts, burns, damage Rewire or repair or replace wWhen a sealed compressor motor has "burned out" this means that the internal wiring of the motor has become irreparably damaged: the compressor motor windings may be burned and shorted together or shorted to the steel shell of the motor, or the windings may have burned and simply become "open" or disconnected. If the motor has burned out in either of these ways it needs to be replaced.

Model hl410100 the compresser works well until the pressure reaches about 75lb then the motor stops but keeps trying to turn as soon as you bleed off some air the motor starts again until it hits 75lb.It...


might be a bad check valve and do nut use an extension cord ever on a air compressor it will over time damage the motor plug it in directly and use longer hose

The Electric motor does not have enough torque to start compressor. It is hooked up to 230V with 40 amp single phase. checked voltage with meter so I know it has enough voltage.


Does it trip the breaker or does the motor just hum and not turn the compressor? The motor may need a start capacitor. Do not keep tryin to start you can burn out the start winding on the motor.
TURN OFF POWER AND LOCK OUT.... try and take the belts off (if it has belts)of the motor and compressor and make sure both turn freely. IF THEY TURN FREELY THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE MOTOR. You said voltage, wire size and breakers are the right size.
Hope this helps you with your problem...Jim...please leave a comment

DK697100AV 2-gallon air compressor. Doesn't turn on at all. I opened it up and found a burnt fuse. I replaced it and now the fan turns on but not motor. What do you suggest? Thanks.


I don't believe there is a separate fan motor. The fan is mounted to the main motor shaft. If the fan is running, but the compressor pump is not, the driveshaft is busted. Probably best to toss it.

Inline fuse keep blowing


You will need to get to the motor and OHM it out with a meter to find what and where the short is and coming from.

Motor shorted out and will not run.


THE MOTOR WILL PROBABLY COST ALMOST AS MUCH AS THE WHOLE THING. I WOULDNT TRY TO GET MOTOR REBUILT EITHER, THEY NEVER HOLD FOR ME. MAYBE BUY ONE EXACTLY LIKE IT SO YOU HAVE SPARE PARTS LATER. MAKE SURE YOUR VOLTAGE IS CORRECT. SOME OF THE SMALL COMPRESSORS CAN BE SWITCHED 115 OR 230 VOLTS.
