Compressor kaput?

My Electric compressor quit the other day, now it just humms and doesn't do anything.

Anyone know of a fix for this, or is it finished.

Can you turn it over by hand? Or is it seized?

If its not seized, it might be something simple like the capacitor is shot. They are cheap, you can get one at somewhere like Dels Electric, especially if you can take the specs off the old one or bring it in.

It lives jammed into a corner of my garage buried under a pile of crap with just a big enough space to reach in and bleed it. I'll dig it out this week and snap a couple pictures and play with it a little...

There may be a check valve in line to tank thatís allowing pressure back on piston. Try draining all air see if it starts. Or maybe ran outta oil

When your done that, you should check to see if the compressor will turn over.
