Air Compressor Capacitor Question
Bought a refurb air compressor. 60 gallon, 220volt. The generous 30 day warranty had expired prior to getting a chance to connect it. Wouldn't run. Discovered one of the capacitors was missing. Took the existing capacitor and went to Dayton and bought a matching unit. Compressor starts and runs, but won't run to recharge the tank. It tries to start, but stalls and the motor kicks out. Won't start again until the motor cools and can be reset. Usually, I will run the compressor till it is full, turn it off, and use the air until the pressure is too low to be useful. Then I'll drain the rest of the air out and start over. It is a workable solution, but a PITA.
The capacitors are 20mf, 330v. I think I may have replaced the start capacitor with a run capacitor. I hope if I replace that one with correct unit it may run properly. What size capacitor would you recommend.
Thanks in advance.
