There is a one way valve that only lets air from compressor to tank. If this isn't working the motor is trying to start under the pressure of the tank, and therefore tripping your breaker.

SOURCE: help! air compressor trouble.
ASSUMING YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE PRESSURE SWITCH. YOU SHOULD EITHER HAVE 2 WIRES OR 4 WIRES ON THE SWITCH. THE SWITCH IS TYPICALLY MARKED LINE-LINE-LOAD-LOAD. IF YOU CAN SEE THE INSIDE OF THE SWITCH YOU WILL SEE THE CONTACT POINTS. ONE CORD WIRE CONNECTS AND PASSES THRU ONE SET OF POINTS TO ONE WIRE OF THE MOTOR. THE OTHER CORD WIRE PASSES THRU THE OTHER SET OF POINTS AND CONNECTS TO OTHER MOTOR WIRE. YOU TYPICALLY WILL NOT HURT THE COMPRESSOR BY HAVING THIS WIRING INCORRECT - PROBABLY JUST POP THE BREAKER INSTANTLY. IF YOU CANT SEE THE PATH THRU THE POINTS YOU CAN OHM THRU THE POINTS AND GET A CONTINUITY BEEP ON A VOLTMETER. IF THATS NOT AN OPTION, JUST SWITCH THEM AROUND UNTIL IT RUNS. HOPE YOU BOUGHT THE SAME CUT-IN AND CUT-OUT PSI. GOOD LUCK AND WRITE BACK IF THIS DOESNT GET IT. JODY

SOURCE: air compressor not working
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.
