Same as all my 220v compressor motors. Contacts make and then enable (maximum) start-up current inside motor (brushes). Only flashes for a moment....startling yet normal. Hope this helps!

I HAVE 7.5 HP VERT 80 GAL TANK COMPRSSOR IT KEEPS BURNING CONTACTS ON PRESSURE SWITCH. CONTACTS STICK TOGETHER AND COMPRESSOR WON'T SHUT OFF AFTER REACHING PRESSURE. WHAT'S CAUSING THIS?


There is a capacitor across the contacts
To absorb the inductive collapse if the motor.

But this problem usually only happens to DC motors not AC.

If the starting Cap has 2 leads I'm stumped if it has 3 leads replace it.

I did not drain the tank on my 80 gal comp now trying to drain I only get a trickle out of the drain line. Help


Take drain plug completely out of bottom of the tank and remove the outlet plug on the side of tank. pour 1 gallon of clean water into tank and stir up sediment. . Replace the side plug and start compressor , keep this up until drain water runs clear not orange. Then re install everything and check tank pressure and for leaks.

How do I wire my 60 gal 3 hp IR commpressor? What size wire, what size breakers, and where on the motor do I attach my wires. Motor says 15 amp, 220 volt. Thanks, Clint


I would use a # 10 wire size with a 30 amp breaker. The motor should already wired to the pressure switch unless it has a mag starter. If no mag starter incoming power should go to pressure switch not motor. If unit has a mag starter incoming power should go to top of mag starter.

Check air compressor in the garage. Took it inside and plug it in. Nothing. What would possibly cause it to work one second, then not the next?


you have to start at the beginning. your outlet, cord, motor breaker, the on off switch on the comp that trips the comp off at a set pressure. if you know how to use a volt ohm meter that would be good to check the cord and breaker. some time the pressure switch contacts will arc and burn a little and then don't make good contact.

Burner nozzle selection for Kerosene torpedo heater


Hello Teisco I would go with semi-solid style Spray pattern is not related to ignition.Universal is probably semi-sloid but stay away from that one.Spray pattern relates to running combustion noise,style can make all the differance.A.50 nozzle can&will clog easily ,replace it and dont touch/change anything else.See if thats it.Pump pressure should NOT have changed but is 100PSI.spark gap, stick near 3/8 or less.If it lights & sputters out dont change the gap .Is there water in the fuel?
