Sounds like a defect in the bleeder valve that drains the line from compressor to tank after each pump cycle. The rings may also be stuck in the compressor. Try spraying WD-40 into the air intake of the compressor while running (remove the air cleaner material to do this). Have you changed the compressor oil? Things are likely gummed up from sitting so long without use. Have you drained water from the tank bottom?

    Possibly the pressure switch needs to be adjusted to reach a higher pressure. Trace the power cord into a box that also is piped into the pressure line from the compressor. If the pressure works itself back down again, use thread-locker fluid on the adjustment screw to hold it's setting.
