Craftsman air compressor that keeps tripping my breaker. Free if anyone wants to fix or wants the tank for something. Located in north Peoria at 303 and happy valley.



There's probably nothing wrong with the compressor. It's tripping your breaker because it's probably plugged into a 15 amp outlet.  Even if the circuit is a 20 amp circuit, I've seen a 15 amp outlet trip it, especially when the equipment gets older and draws a little more power. Replacing the capacitor, a $7.00 part, may also help. 

Best to have a non-GFI 20 amp circuit and outlet, if you can, to run your larger 110 equipment.

PM me and I'll see if I can help you.
