The pump and the motor ensures the optimum efficiency and reliability of the Husky air compressor.

    I have the same air compressor. Purchased it just before Halloween and it worked great till the other day. Now when I turn it on it turns a little and then pops the breaker. It will run with the belt off and everything turns freely but as soon as I hook it all up same thing….. motor turns the pump like a eighth of a turn and then pops the breaker. Anyone have any suggestions? Thank you
