compressor failure


Compressor motor will not start, previously clattered quite a bit. Oil levels fine. Reset motor, it hums briefly but won't run. Twin cylinder 5gal. 3peak hp powerbuilt hot rod series used in unheated garage with extreme temperature variations. Any ideas?


You will need to call customer service at 1-800-423-3598 and give them the model number of your compressor and order a new motor starting capacitor for your unit.  They will be able to quote price and availability.  I am at a remote location and do not have access to parts inventory information.

Incidentally, I sent this answer to your email address that was in my own email and the message was rejected saying that you do not have a yahoo account.

Thanks for asking,
