Question about Campbell Hausfeld 5 Peak / 1.7 Running HP, 17 Gallon Husky Air Compressor
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.

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
