My kobalt 80 gallon air compressor won't turn on


BE CAREFUL! Jump the pressure switch and see if it starts. If so, replace the switch. If it doesn't start but hums, cut the power and try to turn the compressor by hand. Free it up if possible. If it does not hum, look for a reset on the motor or a blown fuse or breaker.

I have a 2 hp 4 gallon twin stack mint craft air compressor. I need the oil cap/ breather plug and also need to no how much and what kind if oil to put in the compressor


30 weight Non Detergent Air Compressor Oil is what you should use, although any 30W Non-Detergent Oil would work. Quantity wouldn't be much since it's only 2 HP. As far as the breather plug/oil cap, you caould try FD & Sons Hardware @ 866-612-5454. They showed as being a Mincraft Distributor.

I have a Cleman 4 Gallon, 1.75 HP, Powermate air


When mine hums and trips, it is one of two things, Not warm enough, only does this when it is cold out, and 2 would be not enough juice, I have to have a 20 amp breaker or it doesn't run. And if I use a cord, it has to big. The slightest drop in amperage and it will not run, yours might have the same problem, mine is only 1 1/2 HP. It draws some 16 amps at start up and then idles down to 13 to run. A 15 amp breaker, forget it. Cold out, forget it. It wasn't just mine though, we did a house last winter and made one bathroom heated with a gas heater with 3 compressors in there just to keep them warm, there was no room for us. Hope this helps.

There should be a reset button on the motor. Try that first. Otherwise, it is a bad pressure switch or internal motor problem. If resetting the motor allows the unit to start, but it just hums, shut it off right away, bleed off all pressure and try again. Let us know what happens.
