Make sure your pressure switch is set correctly. Check your pressure gauge and make sure it is functioning correctly. Also,seems sometimes if there is any time when there isn't the adequate amount of power demand supplied the motor heats up more causing the thermal protection switches to act a little finicky which in turn shuts it down.Check how many amps the motor is rated compared to the breaker controlling the circuit. Is it a dedicated circuit only for the compressor or are there other things also drawing power from the circuit ?

SOURCE: Start up problem
The problem that you describe is caused by the in-tank check valve and/ or the unloader at the pressure switch. When the compressor cycles off the pressure switch releases the air that remains in the air line thru a small valve. There is a 1/4 " plastic tube extending from the check valve to the switch. Listen for the release of air as soon as the compressor stops. There is a small metal tab that pushes on the unloader valve that may need to be adjusted. The motor does not have enough power to start pumping if there is air/backpressure in the air line. If these parts are working correctly then check the value of the start capacitor and use meter to measure. The cap should test within 95 % of stated value. Parts are available at www.chpower.com.

I would say that the gauge needs to be replaced. These are common items so go to any auto parts or craftsman hardware store and purchase a replacement.
be sure to use some joint compound or teflon tape on the threads so u dont have any leaks.
please rate my answer. thanks.

Maurader1 an apprentice has this problem solved and is spot on. All these gurus and wiz need to stick to the basic and common sense. The first place your pump will give out after use or abuse is the gasket. All this garbage about defective reeds and defective pressure switch is a lot of nonesense if you first don't rule out the most common problem the head gasket. I'm cheap and this thing has paid for itself 10 time over. You can get a gasket kit for $7, but I fabricated a gasket out of the back of my notebook and sprayed some gasket spray and been working like a charm ever since.
