Air compressor trips motor breaker
John Deere A75 The breaker on the motor trips off when the unit calls for more air after the initial fill. The unit will begin to fill the tank and when filled, shuts down. When more air is required, the switch trips for more air, but the motor will try to start (it hums) and after a second or so trips the breaker. As long as the motor does not cycle off it continues to work fine. Just when it cycles off is when the problem occurs.
