  • This may be because the Air Compressor’s circuit breaker has tripped due to the unit being turned on from the power/wall outlet rather than the On/Off Power Button on the Compressor.  
  • The circuit breaker protects the Compressor’s electric motor from burnout or any time it’s under an extreme load. Once tripped, the motor will not run until it is reset. 
  • You can simply reset the Air Compressor by pressing the ‘Reset Button’.
  • It’s important to remember to only turn your Air Compressor On/Off from the power button on the Compressor itself.
