M Magenctek Century AC motor
Industrial Class B
Air compressor Switch
Condor 1 Phase
1 phase rating, 120volts 60Hz FLA 24 LRA 144
240 Volts 60Hz FLA 24 LRA 144
60C/75C copper wire only 10-18 AWG Torque 9lb in
150 Max PSI
So the compressor is tripping the breaker a few seconds after running. I have did all the trouble shooting, Good check valve, Both Caps are good, Motor was checked by AC motor tech and checked out good, good uploader valve is good. Getting 0.118 volts to the motor.
So now Im thinking an electrical problem.
Here's what I have.
Running 220 to the garage, wired to a dedicated circuit in the garage but,this circuit wire is 14-2. I m now thinking I need to change this wire to a 12-2 with a double pole 20amp breaker?
I don't think Im getting enough amps to the motor from the 14-2 wire.
