Question about Ingersoll Rand Type 30 Reciprocating Air Compressor 5 Hp, 80 Gallon, 230 Volt 3 Phase, Model# 2340N5
Without being there to test it with the meter i can't say for sure but from my experience when a motor is starting to go bad. meaning it has a worn spot on the armature of the windings it will cause a excessive draw and make the fuse blow. now why it may be working after several attempts is because it is heating up and metal expands when hot and stops the increased draw because the clearance has shrunk because of the expansion of the metal.
also the compressor engine(air pump) may be causing it because it is starting to bind up and after several attempts it losen enough that the motor can keep it turning. but i would think you would hear a noise coming from it if so.
to check if that is the issue you need to tke of the belt from motor to air pump and spin the air pumps pulley to see if there is eccessive drag on it.
if so you will need to find out why the air pump is binding by checking the crank and rod and piston(s).
let me know if you hve any more question! good luck
