I Have several Emglo 2 h.p. air compressors they draw about 14 amps. when they start up. A little bit more when they are cold. You need to make sure they are plugged directley into a outlet by itself. you can run other tools on the same circuit if its a 20 amp circuit. Hope this helps

It could be a couple of things. To me it sounds like you have a short in the motor or damage to the cylinder and piston. You need special equipment in order to test the armature and field for a short. There may also be damage to the brushes and brush holder. There could also be a problem with the cylinder and piston. The bearing could be bad causing a hard start for the motor. I think it could be the combination of the two problems listed above. You may want to check the pump first and if that is not the problem it is an electrical short in your motor in which case you should buy a new compressor. It will cost more to fix if the motor is damage than to buy a new one. "BER" Beyond Economical Repair.

My emglo@16818 air compressor won't start I just turned it on and as it was starting it just died out what's wrong?


if it now try's to start an just trips the breaker , then emglo's have a motor start capacitor that's in a small housing on top of the motor , heat from motor over time can make this go weak and not provide enough "start !!" to get it moving, replacements for these are avail and are not expensive

Breaker breaks


This unit may have an internal overload mounted on top of the compressor. You would have to get to the
compressor to find out and it maybe faulty. That may
explain why the compressor comes on later on, this
overload protects the compressor from getting hot.

When you trip the breaker and then reset it again only to see it trip again almost sounds like a direct short or loose wire. It could also mean that your
capacitor needs to be replaced or that you need a hard start kit and the unit needs a good cleaning.

Try just operating the fan and see if it trips the breaker, if it does then either the blower motor is bad
or it is still the capacitor.

Emglo airmate AM78HC4V; when trying to start compressor the motor will only hum


I had the same problem. Replace the motor capacitor. small white cilinder part with two wire plugs conected to it. This will have a single bolt holding it to the frame casing, you will find it under the black plastic shroud that covers the motor. Take it into any electrical or compressor shop and they will check it for you. costs about $35.00.
