Make sure the service that you have the compressor plugged into is sufficient to run that big of a motor. ie, a 20 or 30 amp breaker/service.

Previous owner had way overfilled crankcase oil. Oil had gotten into carb and clogged air filter. Drained oil to correct level. Ran engine but kept cutting off-see above. Took off carb cover cleaned housing and ran without air filter-ran fine. Unsuccessfully tried to clean air filter with gas-did not work. Apparently, the engine could run just long enough to exhaust the air in the old filter and cut off which is why it would start back up after a few seconds. Bought new air filter-whole thing-about $15 at Carquest. Put in some carb cleaner and installed the new filter and it runs perfectly.

Circuit breaker on my air compresor pops


does the breaker pop with an empty tank?
if so then you need to see if the unit turns free,try running the m/c disconnected from the pump unit,my guess is that your drive motor bearings or internal windings are at fault
hope this helps regards ian

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
