      I had a weird thing happen at work during the heat. We use an electronic key for some of our alarms and locks on substations. I was opening a lock and my key burned up throwing sparks and smoke. Surprised the hell out of me, I just let it drop to the ground. Think it was 100 degrees out that day...

        Got the compressor together, wired for 110V, runs great and quiet then after around 85-90 psi seems to load somehow and blow the breaker, Motor runs fine without the comp on it, thinking the cooing shroud needs to be fitted a bit better I hope? Yes new check valve also. Any thoughts from the peanut gallery?

            20 amp should draw 13. Just changed the oii also. Thinking it is getting hot on the compressor side. Possibly? Shroud was a wreck fiberglass it back together, seem to fit ok might tweak it some today.

              Rather than fry my coil we fried beets from the garden with bacon and eggs and fresh cucumbers! All I need is the mason jar of tea.

                Pretty sure it says 13A at 110v, hard to read it I can run 220 singe to it but a PIA at best.

                Not sure nothing on the comp unit itself, Tim made it up at some point, other than that quiet, builds up fast also. Get it right should keep up with the glass blaster.

                  I am hoping it is just not getting enough forced cooling air around the cylinders.

                    Just put a fan up to it while it's running and see if it helps.

                      • Not that I see was wondering that also, no wiring for it in the motor, the motor stays cool, just the comp part gets the cylinders hot to the touch.
