Question about Clarke Power Products Inc AC2001 2HP 4 Gallon Pancake Tank Compressor

1 Answer

My dad bought a used 2HP 4 gallon clarke pancake type air compressor at an auction. It keeps blowing capacitors. Does it have a centrifical switch to take the cap out of the cct once started?

    This cheapy version doesn't have the centrifugal swithch, but rather a positive temperature coefficient resistor instead (I think). I half suspect it came wired wrong from the factory (with the PTC resistor not properly in series with the starting cap). Need to tear into it and investigte further. Thanks.

My Clarke AC2001 4 Gal. compressor hums when power button is up. Compressor will not start up! Why?


one of a few things possible, first is that the start capacitor is faulty, second could be the start switch inside the motor, and the third that the pump is not unloaded ( if only happens when the tank has air in it) or the pump and or motor is locked up.
