    Default motor change needed

    hey guys,
    Please help me resolve my problem. I don't know where else can I post this question on the forum.
    In short. My craftsman air compressor is powered by a single phase motor. The motor doesn’t operate. I'll change it for a new one. If you have a similar equipment or know what to change it for, please suggest.
    PS: I have a downtime currently..
    thanks a lot.

    bump,
    I checked available offers on the Craigslist and the guy not far from my location sells his used baldor AC type motor. I found the specs at this website https://www.mrosupply.com/motors/ac-...vm3546_baldor/ the only drawback is that it is a 3PH. Will it function through the VFD?

    In short no. A three phase motor NEEDS all three phases to operate.
    Making something idiotproof only serves to breed a better grade of idiot.

    What is the Craftsman model number of the compressor?
