Question about Hitachi EC12 Portable Electric 2hp Air Compressor, Oil Lubricated
Sounds like the pump is siezed or the starter capacitor has burnt out. I would try to get to the armature on the motor and see if you can turn it by hand.
If you can't turn it, remove the head of the pump to see if the valves are ok and that nothing is jamming the piston from moving ( rust, broken rings, bits of valve ).
If the piston is ok, it may be a siezed bearing.
