Thank you for your question.

I should be able to help you determine the watt rating of your air compressor. First you need to know the amp draw of the air compressor. The amp draw should be listed on the model number tag. Then you need to know the voltage. Once you have the volts and the amp rating you can fine the watts. Times the amps by the volts and that number is the running wattage for the compressor. For example 6.5 amps x 116 volts = 754 running watts.

The air compressor can draw twice as much on start up. So you need to figure double the running wattage. I hope this is helpful.



Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

The online version of the owners manual had nothing about wattage.

It's very important for you to know the wattage of your appliances. I was able to find the owner's manual, thank you for the model number. In every owner's manual provides you with the specific wattage for the appliance.
