Did you drained water and sludge from the tank and oiler?

did you check oil level and changed it?

do your pressure sensor react to the pressure?

these are the items to check - as you did not bother to inform us what model - only general advice can be given... for future references - give us a better chance and provide manufacturer, model, year and in computers operating system as well...

SOURCE: clarke hunter 60 2.5 hp compressor , trip switch keeps tripping

if you are talking about the brass valve with a small pin in the middle.it leaks untill the pressure get to 15-25 lbs then the pin pops out and stops leaking and the compressor pumps to pressure. this is normal that valve it a cold start valve that allows the compressor to start with out binding

SOURCE: Electric Air compressor just hums then trips breaker.

usally there is a releaf valve that takes the pressure off the compressor while it is resting. If that pressure is not off when the drive piston starts the motor will overload and blow the the breaker or reset. Check for a releaf valve for when the unit has reached full pressure

SOURCE: I wish to rewire a single phase electric motor

The motor itself should have a sticker which describes the wiring for 115. It is a small change involving a single wire moving from one pole to another inside the motor starter cap (the bump on the motor itself).

SOURCE: I have a Clarke SHHH air 2/9 compressor

I also have a Clarke SHHH 2/9 with the same problem. I sent it off to machine mart service dept. in Nottingham who quoted £189 to replace a faulty pump. Am not going ahead with repair since replacement cost is only £250. Cost sending to Nottingham (from local machine mart) & cost of estimate & cost of return (to local machine mart) was £24 which I thought was reasonable. Very unimpressed with compressor itself wich failed after only light use.

SOURCE: compressor starts innitially,then when pressure

the start capacitor on the motor body is weak,the motor needs this component to over come the air pressure when cycling to re-build the low air pressure,change both the start and run capacitors when doing the start because the other run capacitor is just as old and it will soon fail

I have a Ingersoll Rand Compressor model# 2545E10V 10 HP,3 phase and I would like to convert it to a signle phase. would this motor here be good to go with and what other items will be needed to complete...


It might. Mounting holes match? Shaft diameter and adapter match? Power supply sufficient for 5HP motor? It's a big motor! You might get a better answer from the ebay supplier.

I have a brand new IR compressor model 2475N7.5 with a 7.5 hp 460v 3 ph motor. is it possible to convert it to a single phase power supply? or should i just exchange it? ... I ordered it thru Northern Tool...


When you google home made 3 phase converters, you will find many ways to make use of 220v single phase instead, however you are limited as to the hp that the motor will produce. If you spin the motor first then apply 220v, the motor will continue to turn at much reduced hp. You need full power to turn a type 30 pump depending on pulley combination/ setup. Best to return the unit and get one that will run on 220v single phase. It will most likely consume more power to do the same work however it would cost a great deal to install 3 phase. Most likely not even available at all. Many years ago, I worked at Sears and happened to see an electrician coming down from roof access of building. He told me that sears had a 3 phase generator being turned by a 220v single phase motor to run an air conditioning unit. He said that it worked quite well. Does not sound cost effective.

I would like to connect a pressure switch to the motor starter


hi! there, single phase compressor motor need a starting capacitor base on the rated capacity in horse power,you can check this on the tag of the compressor motor how many horsepower was indicated,it should be for single phase motor starting capacitor has a capacity of micro farads.for a 1 horsepower = 15 to 18 micro farads stating capacitor if you have more than 1 horsepower you can basically proportion the value of capacitor you need or ask the dealer how much capacitor you need on your motor the connection of pressure switch with a four terminal should be connected both on common line L1 and running capacitor line L2 .if you open the cover of pressure switch there are 4 terminals,2 terminals are connected when normally close or no pressure they connected on series connection on the common line one terminal connected to common line of the compressor and the other terminal on L1 to the pushbutton switch to L1 supply line.the 2 other terminals also connected in series withe line capacitors L2 to yhr power supply line.hope this will help you a lot.just rate my fix thanks a lot.

Have a 3 phase 7.5 HP IR compressor,want to put a 7.5 HP single phase motor on it,how do I wire the starter switch


You will use two of the original three wires. Not knowing if you have a motor starter and how it is wired makes it impossible to give you details.

BE AWARE that a 7.5 HP single phase motor is going to draw a massive starting surge compared to a three phase motor. I assume this is on a 240 volt system as it would NOT be practical to use a motor that size on a 120 volt system.

Expect to require around a 30 to 50 amp single phase feed to the motor.
