The probably is probably the pressure regulator switch. It's the box the 110 vac wires come from the outlet and go into. Reset the switch or replace it. Note! overfilling an air pressure tank is extremely Dangerous. The tank, fittings, compressor head and or related parts may explode resulting in property damage as well as serious and potentially fatal personal injury.

Your compressor is sold under various part #s depending on brand name. The link below is the breakdown for ac-0171.
http://www.devilbissparts.com/OilLubeStat%20PDF%20files/ac-0171.pdf. You will notice that there is no vent to release internal pressure. Most brands have a filler/dipstick which is also a vent. As the compressor wears there is a normal increase in crank pressure caused by pressure passing thru the rings. I have seen home made vents installed on the bearing cap. If you are creative you can make one yourself using the same cap or a metal cap (axel bearing cap) that fits the opening. A crankcase vent is a very simple device. A small hole to atmosphere with a bit of oil resistant foam behind to prevent oil from being blown out the hole. Works best when there is a vent tube about a couple of inches long to catch any oil and allowing it to run back down into crank. Remember that there is oil sloshing around inside the pump. Examine several brands of compressors for vent and try to recreate that on yours. One thing in common about vents is that they are usually located pretty high up above the crankshaft. You could also try lowering the cut-out pressure on your compressor to reduce back pressure. Good Luck on your repair.

tap on the check valve with a metal object. Its sticking open. The check valve is the brass fitting on top of the tank. When the valve sticks open it emits air from the area of the engine. If that doesn't work (which I would be surprised it doesn't), you'll need to purchase a new check valve. Good Luck!

Might be the unloader valve is stuck. if so there will be hissing noise from switch assembly and you may have to get a new one.

Yes...the drain valve on the bottom of the tank is just a standard 1/4 Drain Pedcock that you can purchase at most hardware store.
You can also find these in the hardware section of Lowes or Home Depot where they sell the Air Compressors.

If you open the compressor housing you will find the pressure switch which is connected to a hose from the tank. You will find two wires connected to the sensor connected to the hose. You can temporarily short the two wires together to see it the compressor kicks in. When you disconnect the hose going to the pressure switch do you have air escaping from the house? If it does, replace the pressure switch from eReplacementParts.com which will cost approximately $24.00. If you do not, the manifold gage could be blocked.
