Not Starting

Lack of Power

1. Check that the main voltage (power supply or outlet) corresponds to the

    air compressor specifications. 

2. An extension cord that is too thin or too long can cause a voltage drop        and cause the motor to overheat.
    Extension cord of 14 gauge 25 feet is reccomended
3. Generator is too small and produces too few watts to run the air 


The thermal protector turned on because the motor is overheating.

Do not run motor continuously (non-stop) for more than 1 hour.


Mutiple times of overheating will permenately burn and danage the motor.
