    Getting parts for this compressor is a nightmare. The motor is only available with the pump and is waaaay to expensive. It makes more sense to just buy a new one. I’m selling mine for parts.

    Hello, I own the H1503tp air compressor and it overheated because a plastic bag was blocking vent😳😳 it won’t turn on. The on/off switch lights up only. I didn’t find a reset button. The motor turns easily. Any idea what is happening? I really appreciate you.

      This safety feature is designed to prevent damage to the Husky H1503tp air compressor when it overheats.

      Based on the information provided, a few things could be happening:

      1. Thermal overload switch tripped – Many compressors have a thermal overload switch connected to the motor windings that will trip and cut power to the motor if it overheats. This acts as a protective circuit breaker. Try unplugging the compressor and letting it fully cool off for several hours, then plug it back in to see if it will restart.

      2. Motor or starter capacitor damaged – The overheating may have damaged the motor windings or the starter capacitor. You’ll need to have an electrician test these components for damage. A damaged capacitor is cheaper and easier to replace than the whole motor.

      3. Compressor pump seized – If the pump seized up due to overheating, it likely won’t turn and could explain why the motor won’t start. Try turning the pump pulley by hand with the power disconnected to check for binding. If seized, the pump may need rebuilt or replaced.

      Checking the oil level, cleaning dust/debris from exterior vents, and ensuring proper ventilation can help prevent overheating issues in the future. I’d start by letting it fully cool off and trying to restart, then have an electrician inspect if still not working. Let me know if you have any other questions!
