SOURCE: Electric Air compressor just hums then trips breaker.

usally there is a releaf valve that takes the pressure off the compressor while it is resting. If that pressure is not off when the drive piston starts the motor will overload and blow the the breaker or reset. Check for a releaf valve for when the unit has reached full pressure

It could be a couple of things. First and foremost check the plug and make sure the continuity is good for the wires. I have found sometimes that cords get smashed and the wires will be making contact inside the plastic sheathing. Sometimes you cant see where the problem is visually. Remove the cord from the switch and test the continuity with a meter. Check across the poles to see if there is a connection there that shouldn't be. If there is continuity across poles get a new cord.

If your cord is good then it could be your switch. There may have been arching that caused damage to your switch. Check for burnt marks and any wires that are touching that shouldn't be.

Check all wiring to make sure it is correct.

Lastly, your motor may be stuck. Check motor and wiring.

SOURCE: My Clarke AC2001 4 Gal. compressor hums when power

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.

I have. Pro Source 2.5 HP / 10 Gal air compressor and when I turn it on , it trips the breaker switch. Any advice on how to troubleshoot this problem?


yes... unplug it and access the inside... you have a direct short to ground or a lock up motor/pump... might be easier to buy a new one, save the tank for a piggy back tank

Hi dtsorrell...

If your somewhat of a mechanic/electrician then you can by-pass the pressure switch by hooking the color coded motor wires together with the incoming color coded wires from your power cord in the proper order.
Plug it in and then check to see if it blows the breaker again, if it does then it is your motor that is faulty.
Please take time to rate me.

Sounds like the unloader valve is not working properly. The unloader typically is at the end of a tube going to the pressure switch. The unloader is tripped when the pressure switch cuts off. The purpose of the unloader is to bleed the pressure from the cylinder when the compressor cuts off so the next time the compressor cuts on it will be starting in an unloaded condition.
when the compressor cuts off you should hear a discharge of air for about 3 to 5 seconds if the switch is working properly. The unloader can be adjusted if necessary by loosening the jam nuts and adjusting the unloader towards the lever on the pressure switch.

Blowing the breaker


Sounds like you have a bad nutural feeding to the main or its set up for 110 and running on 220. Check the incomming voltage at the wire feed to the motor. If anyone has replaced a breaker or a wall plug close to the unit or any palce in the structure Im betting this feeds back to your air compressor some how. and somethign is differant than it used to be.
Their is no way it could turn faster unless the voltage is way up. Chack the Name plate also on the motor some are dual voltage and maybe its wired up for low volts and on higher. Catch it early like tbhis and it will be ok.
PLEASE RATE ME ACCORDINGLY I THIS HELPS. And GOOD LUCK
