SOURCE: Air compressor w/5hp motor
Assuming that the motor is factory matched to pump, it should be powerful enough to turn the pump. Most problems with motors are related to pressure switch and/or capacitor. The pressure switch could have burned contacts causing low amps to reach the motor. The capacitor should test at least 90% of rated value printed on capacitor. Some volt meters have capacitor check setting. Also this motor at 5 hp must draw lots of amps. The outlet should be rated at least 20 amps and plug the compressor directly into oulet without an extension cord. \
Secondary problem is the in-tank check valve. The check valve should hold in tank pressure without leaking back to the head of the pump. If check valve leaks, replace it with any brand of same thread size. enjoy

hi dave your non return valve is passing air,you will find this if you follow the delivery pipe from your pump to your tank ,where it connects to the tank this is your nrv,there will be a hexagonnal plug ,BEFORE REMOVAL EMPTY YOUR TANK COMPLETELY.remove plug,inside you will either find a spring and a synthetic seal or a spring and sphere , if its just like a rubber like seal just replace the seal(sometimes you can simply turn it over),if its the ball type,then you will have to replace the whole valve,available from your local
compressed air service agent if you have any trouble finding one localy then contact myself at
