Customer Question
hello my name is joe I...
hello my name is joe

I am inquiring about a craftsman air compressor (model#NNN-NN-NNNN which is a horizontal 30 gal tank with a oil less 6.5 horse motor and runs off of 240 volts with 14 amps. The problem I am having is the motor will fire up and run but after 20 maybe 30 seconds it slow down and stops running like the motor is overheating. Keep in mind that the compressor haas been in a storage facility for several years and has not been used much. What do u recommend to remedy this situation.

thanx

The first thins to check are the voltage coming from the wall while it starting and running. If under 205VAC you have a home electrical problem. Also check the capacitor on the motor. The voltage problem will be the most common. thanks

could the motor from being exposed to elements be somehow corroded internally wich is causing it to overheat and shut down
Appliance Technician: RUSS, SERVICE TECHNICIAN replied 8 years ago
absolutely, but you still need to check the voltage at the wall. If this is a belt drive compressor, take the belt off and see if it runs ok then.

The unit is not belt driven and I checked voltage at the source which is appropriate

Appliance Technician: RUSS, SERVICE TECHNICIAN replied 8 years ago
There is a HUGE difference between voltage when RUNNING AND STARTING, AND WHEN DOING NOTHING. That is why I stated check when running
