SOURCE: help! air compressor trouble.
ASSUMING YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE PRESSURE SWITCH. YOU SHOULD EITHER HAVE 2 WIRES OR 4 WIRES ON THE SWITCH. THE SWITCH IS TYPICALLY MARKED LINE-LINE-LOAD-LOAD. IF YOU CAN SEE THE INSIDE OF THE SWITCH YOU WILL SEE THE CONTACT POINTS. ONE CORD WIRE CONNECTS AND PASSES THRU ONE SET OF POINTS TO ONE WIRE OF THE MOTOR. THE OTHER CORD WIRE PASSES THRU THE OTHER SET OF POINTS AND CONNECTS TO OTHER MOTOR WIRE. YOU TYPICALLY WILL NOT HURT THE COMPRESSOR BY HAVING THIS WIRING INCORRECT - PROBABLY JUST POP THE BREAKER INSTANTLY. IF YOU CANT SEE THE PATH THRU THE POINTS YOU CAN OHM THRU THE POINTS AND GET A CONTINUITY BEEP ON A VOLTMETER. IF THATS NOT AN OPTION, JUST SWITCH THEM AROUND UNTIL IT RUNS. HOPE YOU BOUGHT THE SAME CUT-IN AND CUT-OUT PSI. GOOD LUCK AND WRITE BACK IF THIS DOESNT GET IT. JODY

Testimonial: "Thanks Mr. Rabbit, the site you suggested will give me the info I need. Thanks again you screwy Rabbit, Duck Session!!! Jim B "
blk/red are your two 120 volt lines the white is your neutral, if this is a 120/240volt combination motor make sure you change the wiring in the motor configuration to make it 240volt from 120volt

Your compressor is designed to be used in a shop situation (not portable) and is usually wired to a switch box similar to how your central air condenser is wired. It can however be wired with a short cord to a 220v plug. Your compressor motor is most likely wired to the pressure switch so all that you need do is to connect your pigtail from the pressure switch to the wall. You can buy all the parts that you will need at Lowes. You will notice that your motor has two wires going thru the contacts of the pressure switch. The inside cover of the switch will clue you in to wiring but if it does not have an illustration just match the black to black and white to white (110 v lines) and green to the ground screw at the pressure switch.
