I recently was given a 6hp 25 gal Porter-Cable Air Compressor (CPF6025VP) that kicks out my 20 amp breaker at around 80psi and will not restart with even 20 psi in the tank.
I measured the amp draw on it and initial start was very high then leveled out around 7 amps and kept rising above 15 until the breaker tripped at around 80 psi. Amp rating for the motor is 15A (GE motor model is 5kcr49tn2403x). I read through other posts and was planning on replacing both run and start capacitors but I'm having trouble finding the right ones.
I cannot find original replacements and the ones with matching ratings have different terminals on them and I cannot find them that come with a wiring diagram. My run capacitor has 2 red and a brown and start has two black. run capacitor model M40FY33 -40uF -370VAC 50/60Hz start capacitor 52A103967-1 -400-480MFD -165VAC -50/60Hz
Anyone that could point me in the right direction of some capacitors and how they should be wired would be greatly appreciated
Please Let me know if any other info would be helpful. Thank in advance!
p.s. -unloader and check valve are working
-motor spins free
