A local garage has a problem with a single pole 40 amp breaker tripping on an air compressor. This breaker is part of the compressor but only disconnects one leg. Behind this compressor is the disconnect. I want to bypass this breaker but I want to make sure I am not bypassing something that I should not. I don't even know why this breaker is installed as part of the compressor assembly.
Should I be able to bypass this without an issue?
