I'm assuming you mean it's 230 volts, not 230 amps. (big difference here)..and I think it's actually 240 volts. (minor detail)

This is really a job best left to a qualified electrician, as you're going to need to have a 30-amp outlet installed (compare to an electric clothes dryer outlet, or a welder outlet).

The cord supplied with the compressor should be a 4-wire cord,consisting of 1 black, 1 white, 1 red and 1 green wire.

The green wire is the ground and it absolutely *must* be hooked up to guard against an electrocution hazard. Of the other 3 wires, the black is 1 or the 2 hot leads (the red is the other hot lead). The white wire is the neutral.

You will need a *TWO-POLE* 30-amp circuit breaker of the type that's made for your specific make & model of electrical panel. This breaker will have two separate, independent bussbar connections on the underside and 2 separate screw lugs to attach your Black & Red wires to (individually, not to the same lug). These are unique as to brand and model, so you will need the right one. If this is going in your home garage and you're lucky enough that your breaker box is there in the garage where the compressor is going, then it's going to be much easier. (much less expensive) Still I am going to stop here as I cannot recommend anyone working inside their electrical distribution panel unless they are a qualified electrician. Please hire an electrician to hook this up for you. Please do not attempt to hook it up yourself.

SOURCE: manual for husky air compressor ''easy to go''

For what it's worth Compressors are intended to be turned on and forgot (except for the noise). just for grins lets assume you have the stapler and air hose. you need to hook up the air hose to the compressor there usually is one or to either couplers or npt fittings (threaded). attach the hose to the compressor and using a quick coupler (prefered because it allows the gun to swivel) connect the gun to the hose. turn on the compressor and wait for it to build up pressure and *******. at this point you will need to locate the regulator on the compressor. it will be a knob next to one or two dial gages. crank the regulator a quarter turn either direction while watching the gages. It (one of them) moved either up or down . now you know how the regulator works and your almost a contractor. on to the stapler, load it and find a bit of scrap (what your working on would be best.) now shoot a staple into something and see if it goes in far enough or to far. adjust the regulator to compensate. do this until one of three things happens A you find the right staple depth B the compressor kicks on again, wait for it to turn off C you run out of nails, beer or intrest in the project. once you have found the correct pressure for your needs. you may fire at will you don't need to wait for the compressor to cycle while running the stapler just during set up. now your a contractor go have a beer.

just a last tip if you find you don't have the correct couplers home depot, harbor freight or amazon (online) are great sources for parts.

good luck and mind your fingers

SOURCE: husky air compressor/1.5 hp

Compressors pull a lot of juice that is why they come with a large power cord. If you use a small extension cord with it it will easily pop a breaker. So first check all your breakers. Second thing is check your manual to see if you have a reset switch on you compressor, as most do. It should be a small, red switch (rocker or push button type), located between the pump motor and compressor switch. The third is a long shot, check to see if the bleeder valve is functioning correctly. It will be the small copper tube running from the pump to the switch. Just make sure the small lever is free to move.

If this fails to resolve the problem then it is probably the main switch itself. That is a warranty issue. If it's out of warranty then your going to have to either repair or replace the switch yourself. Please feel free to ask for help if you need it in latter case.

You may be able to find the belt you need on ebay. There is a seller named "Footballcardcellar" who lists these often and they are alot cheaper than buying the kit from Husky. Just search "Air compressor belt husky"

SOURCE: I have a husky air compressor model WL651004AJ

You can inspect the check valve by removing it and pulling on the small plastic pin sticking out of the middle of the tank side. It should spring back under fairly light tension. Also visually inspect and clean out with a dry q-tip the brass screen on the inlet site. Seal back with ribbon dope.

If this looks ok, remove the 4 bolts holding the head on. Keep all of the sandwiched plates together in order so they go back in easliy. The cylinder sleeve will come off with this stack. Look at the plastic surround on the piston and the inside of the cylinder. In my case, this was eaten up from too many hot summers and cold winters in the garage. The rubber/plastic had hardened and eaten part of itself away. To replace the entire piston assembly on the WL651004AJ, you'll need to get part number WL211000AJ, which in some books is superseded by WL211000SJ.
If the cylinder is scored (meaning that by scraping your fingernail against the lines in it, you catch the nail) then you're probably better off replacing the whole cylinder unit.

    Wire 230 volt air compressor wiring diagrams


    On 230 volts you have 3 wires 2 are 115 volt and the third wire is ground. As long as you hook the ground wires together correctly the other wires don't matter. Usually the ground wire is either white or green. The black wires are hot (115 volts).

    I have a marathon 3hp motor wired for 220 on a campbell hausfield air compressor. It has a white, black, and green wire coming out of the motor. I am using a no. 12 wire with ground. how do i wire it up to...


    Hi! sims146
    The Green wire from the electric motor is ground. Check the compressor motor, make sure it is wired for 220-230 Volts. If it has a white wire it could be wired 120 Volts. There should be voltage and current ratings on the motor plate. I always double check these connections. At 230 Volts this motor should be 17 Amps full Load. A 25-30 amp fuses are required to protect this motor circuit. Otherwise up to a 42.5 Amp Inverse Time Delay Breaker could be used.
    The welder circuit should have 230 Volts between the Red and Black wires. The white wire is Nutral / Ground. Hopefully this is a 30 to 40 Amp circuit. The Four prong air compressor outlet, White is Neutral, Black and Red 230 Volts, Gray should be ground. Please check with Voltmeter, as some times people swap colors.

    I have a new ingersol rand 80 gal 7.5hp air compressor 230volt single phase and was wondering what size breaker it needs to be put on


    Your owners manual spec sheet should give you that answer. However since that unit at max loads should pull 32 to 35 amps I recommend 1.5 times max amps. So approximately a 50 amp breaker. This all based on standard wire size and length of wire run. Also when checking your voltage at load you should be showing 235 to 240 volts.
