Older craftsman 6hp 33 gallon air compressor
I own an older (very old) craftsman air compressor and 110 doesnt give it enough power to air up and when I try to wire a 220 plug to it, it'll immediately blow the house main breaker. The switch is new but the wiring from the motor to the switch is not. Obviously I'm replacing all old wiring but does anyone have any ideas of anything else. Also the 220 plug is on its own dedicated 50 breaker.
