I had the same problem. Replace the motor capacitor. small white cilinder part with two wire plugs conected to it. This will have a single bolt holding it to the frame casing, you will find it under the black plastic shroud that covers the motor. Take it into any electrical or compressor shop and they will check it for you. costs about $35.00.

SOURCE: won't build up pressure
Once it seized up, it damaged parts inside! simply breaking it free is by no means a proper fix and will likely not last anyway! the pump should be rebuilt and damaged or worn out parts replaced. If the crank shaft and connecting rods are damaged "and I'll bet they are" the cost to rebuild the pump will no doubt be as much or more than the cost of a new pump! I do not want to sound negative but just trying to save you time and money!

Dewalt recommends using synthetic pump oil, however if you only use the machine occasionally and not in a commercial setting, standard compressor oil will work great and save you money. Synthetic oil will last longer and can take much higher temperatures without breaking down. Lowes sell the kobalt brand of compressor oil and sells for about $3 for standard and $7 for synthetic. Home depot sells campbell hausfeld brand but equally as good. Auto parts stores also sell a line of compressor /pump oil just watch pricing for your needs. If you can't find compressor oil, non-detergent motor oil works just fine. Good holidays
