Open the plug at the bottom of the tank while the compressor is on so that it will blow out all the crud. The black liquid is the gunk from the oil in the compressor and staknant water. When the crud stops coming out and you herar just air, you should close the valve and you are set to go. You should drain this tank al least once a month if you use the compressor a lot. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer. Thanks.

Take drain plug completely out of bottom of the tank and remove the outlet plug on the side of tank. pour 1 gallon of clean water into tank and stir up sediment. . Replace the side plug and start compressor , keep this up until drain water runs clear not orange. Then re install everything and check tank pressure and for leaks.

If your motor is running and not the pump, the malfunction is either in the pump or the coupling between the motor and the pump.

Some of these compressors are manufactured so cheap now that there can be just a set screw that is loose and the motor shaft is spinning free inside of the crankshaft.

If you drain the oil out of the pump and take off the pump crankcase cover, you should be able to see the problem.
