Question about Craftsman 33 gal Air Compressor 6 hp Horizontal k Oil Free Pump
Hi Frank and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. This pump motor has 2 capacitors on on top and one behind the rear gaurd. You should isolate the capacitors by removing one wire from them and then test them with a meter. Probe both terminals. Watch for a momentary jump on the meter and then drift to infinity. Do this with BOTH capacitors. If they check good then inside the motor there is a centrifugal switch that slides side to side on the armature shaft. If the slider is stuck or the switch terminals that it presses against are burned yu can have the symptom you describe. The bad thing about this switch is I have ot found a source for it anywhere. You either repair the contacts or you replace the motor. The motor is outrageous in price. I see them retail from $249.00
to just over $417.00. If you determine you need a motor... take some time shopping for a replacement. The motor part number is: Z-D23360 or Z-D26712 (replacement / alternate for original.)
Primary motor from Sears:
Alternate motor from Sears:
^^--I have to assume that the first number is the whole pump motor assembly and the 2nd number is the motor only.
Start capacitor 625622-001 (grainger website) or original pn that is only availble through distributors of 625622-1 (grainger adds a 00 before the final number)
