The motor is almost dead on this compressor. It will pump to ~50psi then the motor stalls.
I bought it from ORiellys Auto Parts ~3 years ago for ~$300 (1 yr warranty).
The model 5005 is no longer availabe but a similar model 5006 is shown here.
ORiellys has no repair parts available other than air filter and dipstick, and of course they have no clue about where to buy a motor for it.
Anybody got any ideas where I can get a replacement motor?
If it were a separated motor/compressor type I could order a suitable motor from somewhere like Grainger, but it's an integrated motor/compressor type, so the new motor options are going to have to be fairly specific to this application.
As always, thanks for any help!
You might be money ahead to have that motor repaired. Is there any electrical shops around your area that does this type of repair?
