You should have 3 wires coming from the pigtail. White,red and black. Depending on the application you may have a green wire too, the red and black are the hot wires that supply 220. Since you did not post the type or model of switch, it is hard to tell but red goes to one side of the switch and the black wire goes to the other terminal ON THE SAME SIDE. The other side of the switch goes to the motor. The white connects to a lug on the frame, if green is present it would connect with the white.

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

On my porter cable 6 gallon air comnpressor need to know where the red black and yellow wires get plugged into

there always three wires in the power cord, the green/yellow stripe wire is for ground connection,which doesn't needed to modify.
One of the other two wire is directly connected to the power plug , and the other connects to the contact point at the pressure switch and returns back to the power plug.
if this pressure switch is not working, you have to install another kind of switch of on and off the compressor.

We've purchased a Kobalt 60 Gallon, Volt 208-240, AMP 15.0 Air Compressor, Item #221565, Model #LLA3706056 without wiring diagram. Can you provide any assistance with this or refer me to a site that...

Your compressor is designed to be used in a shop situation (not portable) and is usually wired to a switch box similar to how your central air condenser is wired. It can however be wired with a short cord to a 220v plug. Your compressor motor is most likely wired to the pressure switch so all that you need do is to connect your pigtail from the pressure switch to the wall. You can buy all the parts that you will need at Lowes. You will notice that your motor has two wires going thru the contacts of the pressure switch. The inside cover of the switch will clue you in to wiring but if it does not have an illustration just match the black to black and white to white (110 v lines) and green to the ground screw at the pressure switch. Here is a good web site for another view:

Go to:
The pressure control switch which the compressor usually pumps into and is mounted on the tank, contains a backflow check valve, the pressure regulator switch, and a compressor pressure release valve. It's probably available only as a complete unit. The pressure switch itself is usually a microswitch that can be obtained locally at a hardware or appliance parts house. Make sure that the pressure switch adjustment hasn't been set higher than the compressor can reach. If you remove the cover, you can watch for mechanical movement at the switch when it is supposed to shut off. Don't poke at anything in there with metal tools--220 volts will give you a lethal shock!

Wire digram for craftsman air compressor

thats not going to work for one the motor is rated at 220v you would need to replace the motor with one thats rated at 120v along with a different pump. you're better off to buy a smaller compressor then do that.

i think you have a bad phase or you are not getting the correct volts going in try switching the hot wires red to black and black to red and check each set of windings for continuity

Breaker relay tripping out

If the unloading valve trips , which i think is the safety valve that tells me the compressor is pumping up past its maximum allowed pressure. that black switch should be the overload switch. check the amps of the wires going to the motor while its running and then look at the name plate of the motor to see the maximum amount of amps that the motor is allowed to draw.
