Craftsman 25 gal compressor -- need MOTOR wiring schematic!!
I bought a used 25 gallon Craftsman Compressor, upright, model 919.165230. It was not working when I bought it, the previous owner had accidentally knocked it over and smashed the start / run capacitors on the back of the motor. Tried starting it up when I bought it, it wouldnt quite kick over, and would blow the breaker.After much research, I found the correct values for the start / run capacitors (start: 30uf, 370VAC. run: 378-454uf, 125VAC)The wiring is not exactly cut and dry. I tried what looked to be logical, with the start cap, and got it running okay, but I am no certain i have it wire
