air compressor crapping-out.
Hey Carl, Thanks for taking my Q, I have an #48... model 2 tank alltrade air compressor. It was working fine, then recently i loaned it to a trusted friend. He called me and i confrimed that when you turn it on it starts up fine but bogged down shortly thereafter when pressure in the tank starts to build. If you open the pressure relief valve the motor sounds like a gas station compressor, but when you close it shortly there after it bogged down and almost dies, sor I shut it off. Is there an easy solution to this. Otherwise it is a fine compressor except for this recent development. Thanks for the courtesy of your reply. Respectyfully, Glenn Mckee glennmckey@earthlink.net
