Unplug the compressor power chord. If you can turn the flywheel, then nothing is stuck. Plug in the power chord and try the compressor again. If it does not work, return the compressor for a replacement.
If you can't turn the flywheel, then something is stuck, return the compressor for a replacement.
If you can't return the compressor for a replacement, then try to take it apart to locate the problem and fix it.

What type of air compressor do you have?
Is it a single motor\pump combination is the pump and motor separated by a fly wheel? If it's the first one don't waste your time or your money. Hard to find parts hardier to justify the money if you do.
If it's the second then you should make sure you can get a rebuild kit and replacement parts. If you haven't already.
Assuming you have anyone of the more common pump brands like Dayton, Champion, Ingersoll Rand.
Dis-assembly should start with the top end. Remove the head and valve plate then the cylinder head bolts and cylinder head. Remove the wrist pin\pins and piston\pistons. Next remove the lower rod end caps and pull them out taking care not too nick the crank bearing journals. Remove the front crank cover and and (if it has one) the rear bearing cap\plug. You should be able to remove the crank through the front access. You may need to tap the back end of the crank clear or the rear bearing.
The bearings will probably need to be pressed out.
Unless you have a pump that is considered non serviceable or is an oddity this should do it.
If your pumps layout differs from the norm or you just need more specific information please let me know. Just include the make and model and I'll be glad to help you out. Good luck.

to be honest a non lube pump design is problematic at best, if you use it for any length of time they just do not hold up, money well spent in a oil lubricated pump you will be far happier!
