How do I wire my puma 220v sigle phase air compressor with s-p40t motor starter?

You contactor /motor starter has connection for up to three phase /L1 thru L3. You will be only using L1 and L2 connectors for power-in/ line and using meter find cross connector for connecting load / motor (usually white and black or red from the motor). The contactor has a push button to test your work (use meter to test before actually wiring up motor and line). The contactor is controlled by separate switch (usually pressure switch on the compressor) using proper voltage as required by magnetic switch of s-p40t. Good luck

Accidently got 220 volts for 3 seconds, then shut off. will not re-start, how should I proceed?

Look for reset button, hopefully reset would have tripped. If compressor will not power on, remove cover to pressure switch and examine contacts for burned. If burned, temp. connect 110v to motor side of switch, (black- black and white-white) if motor runs ok replace switch. If motor does not run check capacitor for proper valve, replace as needed. If cap tests ok and motor will not run check motor windings for melted white strings that bind wiring. If windings look burned most likely you will need to find used motor from repair center.

I have a 5,000 btu frigidaire a/c and the compressor won't kick in

Could be the starter contactor, the capacitor or the compressor by itself . You can see the condition of the starter and maybe clean or if it looks bad , must be replaced. The same goes for the capacitor if the compressor is humming. But if the compressor motor is not starting up , please check for starting current with a clamp tester, if it goes higher and stalls then the compressor/motor is faulty.
Might need help to do an overhauling.
I hope this advice helps.

Motor will not crank when air is in tank.

you are supposed to use the unloader valve to start. when air is in tank the starter motor is not only turning the motor but also trying to compress air. this very hard on the whole unit. the unloader valve should have what looks like a loose lever. lift the lever and it pulls the attached rod. after motor starts and runs put back to rest position

Dryer button will not stay down. When you let go of the dryer button it stops. If I were to stand there and hold the button down it would stay one. While on it clicks

There is a centrifical switch in the motor that will only close once the motor is up to speed, the start button you push energises the starter winding, and once the motor is up to speed the run windings are energised by the centrifical switch.
The switch is not hard to replace but you will need the correct one, take the old one with you unless you'v got the complete model number from the motor.

Possibly water in the air tank ? Or Ice covering the inlet or screen into the tank? DOes it have a belt? or direct drive? Remove the belt and try to turn by hand. See if its the motor or the compressor is tight. If it rolls free possible a chack valve is hung up or has a broken spring OR yuo have a bad capicator or centrifical sw going to the start capicator. Check amp draw with no pressure on the compressor. tank open. If it runs extra time its somethign while under load. If it still cuts out you need to sepperate and discover if its a mechanical or electrical problem.
