    the power source is fine. i run the compressor from this location on a regular bassis. i checked the outlet with a radio to confirm the breaker is okay.



    i opened the compressor panel. no parts are hot. i thought the problem was the switch, but the switch is making connection as you can see the copper connector. the hot, neut and groung wires comming in are fine and well connected. the hot and neut opposite the switch to the motor are fine. i can't find anything wrong.



    do you know where the reset switch is??? i can't find it anywhere. this has to be the problem. i've checked everthing else.



    thanks for you help

    the outlet is fine. no GFI it is an old garage. I picked up my electrical tester. I’ll test the hot line in and trace it to the motor.

    the unit completely cold, even after it is plugged in for hours. This leads me to believe the problem is something out of the ordinary. Could it be a senor telling the motor the tank has pressure, yet it is empty??

    Thank you,

    Craig D.

There may be a reset button on or near the motor. If you see one push it. Also are you sure you have power at the outlet. In most garages built within the last 10 years all the outlets are protected by a GFCI outlet. Power runs through this outlet to all the others. Make sure it has not tripped. If you have voltage at the outlet where the compressor is plugged in and there is no reset button it has an internal breaker that should reset itself after the motor cools off. If it does not then the breaker may be bad or the on/off switch is bad. To make sure nothing is wrong with the connection at the outlet, plug it into another outlet without an extension cord just to make sure.

    Glad you found the problem. It is never a good idea to run a compressor on an extension cord. But if you must then make sure you use the shortest one possible and one with a heavy gauge wire. The larger the wire the less resistance. You can damage the motor on the compressor over time by using a long small extension cord.

Hello Craig. The frustration with most compressors is that they draw enough power to kick a circuit breaker or blow a fuse in your home's electrical panel on a fairly consistent basis. One factor is the size and the length of the extension cord you may be using. Another is what other devices are plugged into that same circuit and in use at the same time the compressor kicks in.

Do this. Plug in the compressor as close to your electrical panel as you can with out using an extension cord. See if it runs. If it does not, plug something else into that outlet to be sure there is power there. IF there is, check all around the motor area on your compressor as most of them have a reset button.

If all of this still produces no results open up the electrical connection box that the cord on your compressor runs into and check to be sure that one of the wire nuts didn't come loose. IF all is still aok, then I would suspect the cord. Do a continuity test on each wire in the cord by disconnecting it from the compressor and using a continuity tester available at any hardware store. Joe

4 thumbs up please. ty.

I have a Husky WL651004AJ which has not been starting up for family members lately and noticed a 50 ft extension cord was being used because of the distance from the power outlet. I moved the air compressor to the power outlet and plugged in the power cord without any other extension cord and the air compressor works fine. The 50 ft cord was too light duty for the power required.
(12 ga) and min gage of 10 for the distance of 50 ft without disrupting the power breakers.

It sounds like you need to replace the run capacitor , if yours is weak or defective the motor will overheat. Check "Drillspot" for a replacement. Another major cause of overheating is due to a dirty air filter , you should check it first.

I have a husky air compressor model WL651004AJ will only build up to 50 psi and compressor keeps running any advise som one could give me to whats wrong.


You can inspect the check valve by removing it and pulling on the small plastic pin sticking out of the middle of the tank side. It should spring back under fairly light tension. Also visually inspect and clean out with a dry q-tip the brass screen on the inlet site. Seal back with ribbon dope.

If this looks ok, remove the 4 bolts holding the head on. Keep all of the sandwiched plates together in order so they go back in easliy. The cylinder sleeve will come off with this stack. Look at the plastic surround on the piston and the inside of the cylinder. In my case, this was eaten up from too many hot summers and cold winters in the garage. The rubber/plastic had hardened and eaten part of itself away. To replace the entire piston assembly on the WL651004AJ, you'll need to get part number WL211000AJ, which in some books is superseded by WL211000SJ.
If the cylinder is scored (meaning that by scraping your fingernail against the lines in it, you catch the nail) then you're probably better off replacing the whole cylinder unit.

There should be a reset button on the motor. Try that first. Otherwise, it is a bad pressure switch or internal motor problem. If resetting the motor allows the unit to start, but it just hums, shut it off right away, bleed off all pressure and try again. Let us know what happens.

I need a new belt for my Husky air compressor but I don't know


This is a simple way to replace your belt without the old one for comparison. Use a piece of rope thick enough to fit inside the pulley, (cloths line works well). Simple wind it around the pulleys marking where the two ends meet. Cut and measure it. Take the piece of rope and measurement to a auto parts store and ask them to match it up. An automotive belt will work fine.
If this is a flat belt they should still be able to help you.
