Question about Garden

1 Answer

We just purchased a Husky 60 gallon air compressor that uses 220, but is not wired with a cord. We have 4 wires coming from our sub panel, 3 wires in the cord we're attaching, and 3 wires coming from the compressor. Do you have a wiring diagram, and can you tell me the appropriate size and type of plug to use? The wiring diagram in the owner's manual does not address our issue.

The red and black are the hot legs of the connection. the white is the neutral, and the green is the ground. the ground and the neutral in your cae can be pigtailed. you will need to know what the starting and run amperage is in order to determine the wire size. My guess would be a 12-3 with ground would be adequate with a 25 amp breaker.

Have a husky 19 gal 1.5hp it kicks on when first start to work and when it builds up air and i use it and when it wants to kick back on it wont i have to wait till it cools down.


Is there an option for you to run this compressor on 220 volts vs 110 volts??? If so, you may want to convert it by following the re-wire instructions on the motor or wire access plate/instuction book. The reason your compressor won't fire up again after building pressure is the head pressure is to great at restart and 110 household current is not enough to give the power needed to turn the piston. You'll need to replace the plug and have someone run a 220 volt circuit once the conversion is completed.

I need a wiring diagram for a kobalt 60 gallon air compressor


If it's a 220 volt motor, hook l1 and l2 (220 volts) to the line terminals. If it's a'dual voltage' motor (120 or 220)and you want to use 120, hook 120 to the terminals marked 'line'. Make sure the motor is connected for the voltage you're using if it's dual voltage.

I have a Coalman Powermate 6.5 Hp 60 gal. compressor model C650C600VIB103. I want to know to connect the elect. cord correctly.


Does the unit have a starter or just a pressure switch , if just a pressure switch it should be marked with line and motor , the wires on the motor should go to the motor terminal and the line terminals are the power supply , if the unit is 110 volts make sure you put the wires on by color , the white wire goes to the motors white wire and the black to the motors black wire , if this is 220 volts it does not matter which wire connects just put the two black wires on the line terminals. One wire per terminals please.

Wires on Compressor motor disconnected.


Some compressors come unwired so the purchaser can wire for 110 or 220 by their choice. This I would think would be possibly your case. Was this purchased new? In any case, here is a site where you may be able to obtain a manual,

http://powertool.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/coleman/coleman_air_compressor_product_list.html

and here is one with a similiar description but a different brand compressor.

hope this helps. copy and paste short cut, in case you may not know, highlight text you want to copy by holding down left mouse button and moving pointer of mouse over text desired,while cursor is still over the high lighted area release left button and right click mouse, select copy, then put cursor in the box you want to paste, right click and select paste
