Question about Briggs & Stratton Air Tools & Compressors
With no air in the tank, and the motor will not start indicates that the starter capacitor may have failed or the bearings of the motor are allowing the rotor/armature to lock against the stator. If your compressor has a belt, remove the belt and try the motor. If it still does not turn, try spinning the motor then turn on while still spinning (use caution). If continues to turn, most likely capacitor, if it stops /locks when you turn-on while spinning, check bearings. If your compressor is pump/motor together suspect bearing on the pump side of motor. Some motors have a primary start winding as well as a run winding. Inside the motor, there are contacts that my have welded together. Good luck
