I have a Craftsman 1.5 HP Air Compressor that has just recently started to kick out my 20 Amp circuit breaker. Things I have tried so far: removed the belt, disassembled and cleaned the motor, checked all the electrical connections. The motor with no load (drive belt disconnected) will start, run for about 1 to 2 minutes, get somewhat hot and then kick out the circuit breaker. Is it time for a new motor?
No announcement yet.
