Question about Coleman Powermate 11 Gallon Air Compressor
I have a Cleman 4 Gallon, 1.75 HP, Powermate air compressor that, when started, hums and then trips the breaker. I have removed the capacitor and had it professionally tested and it is not defective. Any help is appreciated.
When mine hums and trips, it is one of two things, Not warm enough, only does this when it is cold out, and 2 would be not enough juice, I have to have a 20 amp breaker or it doesn't run. And if I use a cord, it has to big. The slightest drop in amperage and it will not run, yours might have the same problem, mine is only 1 1/2 HP. It draws some 16 amps at start up and then idles down to 13 to run. A 15 amp breaker, forget it. Cold out, forget it. It wasn't just mine though, we did a house last winter and made one bathroom heated with a gas heater with 3 compressors in there just to keep them warm, there was no room for us. Hope this helps.
