The compressor pobably has a faulty unloader valve which bleeds the pressure off that is left in the cylinder when the compressor turns off . The unloader valve allows the compressor to start the next on cycle with the cylinder empty. Trying to start the compressor with the cylinder under pressure causes too much current draw and trip the circuit breaker.

filled what tank? if the compressor never comes on it could be because of no or low freon levels or bad start components to the compressor or a bad capacitor to the compressor or fan motor. you may need to call a company to take a look at it, i am a technician myself so please just get a couple different opinions so you do not get ripped off.

Compressor runs fills tank but then it wont keep the pressure, won't restart to keep pressure above requested pressure. I have to let it seat for 1/2 hour to restart again


Most likely problem is the tank fill check valve. The most common way a a tank will loose pressure is by leak-back at the check valve. This also makes it hard to start because it leaves the tank pressure on the pump head instead of letting it bleed off. The motor will only restart after the tank pressure is bleed off to a low level, reducing the back pressure the motor will have to overcome. Leaking can be heard at the pressure switch, where the air is normally bleeds off over 10 seconds or so after the motor turns off. A defective check valve will continuously leak down at the pressure switch unloader valve instead of bleeding out in just 10 seconds. The check valve is an assembly that is largely hidden inside the tank. It just looks like a large hex nut where the filler tube from the pump enters the tank. Removal usually means first removing a smaller hex/barb/connector where the smaller relief line ties into the big nut. Inspection of the check valve will easily reveal whether this is the problem.

Why does my compressor trip the breaker after filling with air


1 of 2 things #1 the pressure releive valve that lets the pressure of the pump when it kicks off is stuck closed so what is happening is when the compressor kicks back on its under a load and trips braker. #2 your braker is to small for the compressor.

Air leaking from tank back into compessor is indication that in-tank check valve is leaking. This condition will stress motor when trying to start. Test : With air in tank, unplug compressor from outlet and remove hose from compressor at checkvalve and test for leak (soapy water). If leaking drain air and remove checkvalve. Examine checkvalve for debris under seat (resurface seat or replace valve). Parts are at www.toolpartsdirect.com Good luck

Compressor fills air tank and when it cycle to refill tank it kicks a 20 amp dedicated circuit breaker. Sears looked at it twice and said it is OK. Changed breaker with new one because Sears said it...


try this. When compressor shuts off. TURN OFF POWER. then spin the compressor backwards or forwards until it is off the compression stroke. Turn unit back on. If it doesn't blow the breaker, then it is worth looking into the type of compressor (pump) you have. Many have a "reed valve" and that might be failing, holding the compressor itself under load when it shuts off so that on restart it is under heavy load and the motor draws too many amps to get it started hence blowing the breaker anyway hope this helps

Trips thermal overload. power source ok. oil ok


Several things to check. Amp draw to be within number on plate, if amp draw not correct check capacitor, should be within 5% of rating on cap.. If amp draw about right and cap reads good suspect faulty breaker. If amp draw high and cap. good check for leak at in-tank check valve. With pressure in tank remove hose at check valve spray soapy water. If check valve good, suspect reed valves leaking. If reeds are leaking the compressor will take longer than normal to fill and the discharge tube/air will get very hot. It is recommended to note the amount of time it takes to fill tank when unit is new and compare this as unit wears. Length of time to fill is an indication of how well unit is working. A combination of leaky valves and leaking fittings as well as leaking checkvalve will cause motor to overheat.

It's trying to come on too soon. 60 PSI is too much pressure for it to run. Reset the pressure switch to kick in around 40 PSI. That will do it.
