Question about Air Tools & Compressors
Could be anything, your question is too vague. I assume the motor runs. Perhaps the pressure regulator is broke or clogged.

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.

The compressor starting problem is common to most of the small portable compressors. Poor design and undersized components are to blame. If you have one of these units i suggest looking into a product called the Smart Start by Conrader Valves. It is interchangeable with the standard air filters and allows the compressor to start without fail. check it out- www.conrader.com.
