The compressor starting problem is common to most of the small portable compressors. Poor design and undersized components are to blame. If you have one of these units i suggest looking into a product called the Smart Start by Conrader Valves. It is interchangeable with the standard air filters and allows the compressor to start without fail. check it out-

Try turning the switch off for 5 minutes the turn it back on there is usually a circuit breaker or thermal overload that can trip let me know if problem still exists

    Loosen the pipe between compressor and tank. Then start w/o load. There must be some type of relief valve but I haven't figured that out yet. I plan to install a petcock in this line for starting.
