If it trips after trying to start....sounds like you need a compressor.Is this system metered by a txv?If so you may try a hard start kit.

Failed capacitor on clarke SE 14 compessor

On electric motors with two capacitors, one is a start capacitor, the other is a run capacitor. Start capicitors have plastic cases and are rated from 200mf to 400mf and higher depending on the size of the motor. Run capacitors are in the 20mf to 40mf range and usually have metal cases. If you have an electric motor service center in the area they can recommend what size you should use for the size (HP) motor you have.

Hi mcfadden21...

Check and clean or repair or replace your compressor's unloader valve.
The unloader valve is suppose to discharge the compressed air from the tops of the piston heads to the outside to make it easy for the compressor to start when the pressure in the tank drops to the starting point.

Air compessor wont start under load it is a airking 3 hp 3ph compessor and will not start under load.

was it running before? what ahpened to it? Is it on 3 phase service or a converter? Does it run with no air in it? Is there a trip for 2 or 3 circuits or just one? I would suspect th epower supply first, and then check the motor to see if it is ok. If it is a converter, they are only good for x amount or hours. Check it out.

Check with your contractor to see if their repair is warrantied. If it is not call someone who carries a warranty and satisfaction guarantee on repairs. It is likely that you got a bad capacitor, however, this typically will not trip a breaker. It's possible that other issue(s) caused the capacitor failure.
How old is this unit?
