    I looked into replacing a motor on my compressor long ago, and found that the H.P. numbers allowed to be advertised were totally bogus, and we are not allowed to know what that gibberish actually means, and any replacement motors were either so expensive, or chinese junk, that one could go to Lowes and buy a Campbell Hausfiel or similar new for less money.

    Actually Lowes has some decent chit, you just have to look at what you are looking at.

    This^^^^^
    Ratings are a bunch of crap, especially on China stuff.
    The motor shop you took it to didn’t have any info or a motor to replace it for you?

    What often happens is usually one or more of several things .The "unloader" stops working which causes the start winding to fail .The start switch fails causing the start winding to fail .The start cap fails causing the start winding failure .Once after all the smoke leaks out of the winding it will never run again . Get on Craiglist and find another motor .
