For what it's worth Compressors are intended to be turned on and forgot (except for the noise). just for grins lets assume you have the stapler and air hose. you need to hook up the air hose to the compressor there usually is one or to either couplers or npt fittings (threaded). attach the hose to the compressor and using a quick coupler (prefered because it allows the gun to swivel) connect the gun to the hose. turn on the compressor and wait for it to build up pressure and *******. at this point you will need to locate the regulator on the compressor. it will be a knob next to one or two dial gages. crank the regulator a quarter turn either direction while watching the gages. It (one of them) moved either up or down . now you know how the regulator works and your almost a contractor. on to the stapler, load it and find a bit of scrap (what your working on would be best.) now shoot a staple into something and see if it goes in far enough or to far. adjust the regulator to compensate. do this until one of three things happens A you find the right staple depth B the compressor kicks on again, wait for it to turn off C you run out of nails, beer or intrest in the project. once you have found the correct pressure for your needs. you may fire at will you don't need to wait for the compressor to cycle while running the stapler just during set up. now your a contractor go have a beer.
just a last tip if you find you don't have the correct couplers home depot, harbor freight or amazon (online) are great sources for parts.
good luck and mind your fingers

Your manual pressure release valve might be stuck open or blocked open by some debree. It should have a steel pull ring on the end of it. Exercise it and try running it again. Also the pressure regulator adjustment might have been backed off to zero. Crank it clockwise and see if this helps. Check the air output lines from the compressor to the tank for leaks.

Compressors pull a lot of juice that is why they come with a large power cord. If you use a small extension cord with it it will easily pop a breaker. So first check all your breakers. Second thing is check your manual to see if you have a reset switch on you compressor, as most do. It should be a small, red switch (rocker or push button type), located between the pump motor and compressor switch. The third is a long shot, check to see if the bleeder valve is functioning correctly. It will be the small copper tube running from the pump to the switch. Just make sure the small lever is free to move.
If this fails to resolve the problem then it is probably the main switch itself. That is a warranty issue. If it's out of warranty then your going to have to either repair or replace the switch yourself. Please feel free to ask for help if you need it in latter case.

I could not find parts for my husky compressor and had the same problem as you describe. I went to lowes and purchased fittings to draw air out of the safety port. Remove the safety pop valve and install t-fittings to allow you to reinstall safety valve and also a quick connect. If you want to be able to regulate the pressure, install a simple pressure regulator before the quick connect (also avail. at lowes). This remedy is not pretty but sure works great and simple. Problem with husky regulator is stripped thread /knob. Sometimes you can turn the knob if you drain air from tank; this will release the spring tension on the regulator knob.
