The problem is probably a faulty motor run capacitor.
You will find it under the cover where the cable goes into the motor. Stephen.

SOURCE: My Craftsman air compressor is locked up. When

1. While the compressor is unplugged, see if you can turn the motor freely with a screwdriver or something to determine that the motor is not jammed 2. If there is a removable cover, check to see if the brushes are worn, (replace if needed). 3. There is also a relay that tells the motor to start located near the pressure adjustment. If this relay is defective or the contacts are burnt, you may need to replace the relay. Good Luck!
