Make sure that your outlet has power to it. With the compressor unplugged, open the cap on the pressure switch. Work the on/off switch and see if the contacts are engaging/disengaging. If they are carbonized, you can clean them with a fine sandpaper or emery board. Look for loose wiring and tighten all wiring connections.
