A few weeks ago my compressor stopped working, plugged it in and just got a humming sound. Maybe bad starter capacitor? Replaced that, same thing. Seemed like it was trying to move but just couldn"t, even with the belt disconnected and with me turning it by hand a little.
Okay, motor burned out. Ordered a new one, which arrived today. I wasn"t sure which way the old one turned so I figured if I plugged it in and watched it try to turn I could get an idea...you can guess what happened. Started right up and runs fine now.
I can only assume it had some moisture inside. Anyway, I have a spare motor now if it ever does REALLY burn out.
