Check the reset button on the motor to see if it tripped. The motor may be overheating. Some motors have an internal breaker and they have to cool off before they restart. Also check the pressure switch. Move the switch back and forth ( on and off ) and listen for a click. If it doesn't click with low to no air pressure then the switch is bad.

SOURCE: Pressure won't build up in tank
Your compressor is the oilless type that incorporates a vinyl/teflon piston ring and a cylinder that is open from the bottom. Remove the cover and push the piston to upmost position. Look for scratches along the upper portion of cylinder. If scratched, compression is leaking thru ring and will not fill tank. Replace with Sears part #k0650 cylinder /piston ring kit to restore full power. While the compressor is apart examing the valve plate and reed valves for wear. If worn replace with part #z-ac-0032. Reed valves tend to crack or loose their shape reducing efficiency. If cylinder and ring are in fair condition, then most likely reed/valve plate is the problem. Good luck and email if you have more questions.

Generally, the safety/relief is set to 140 to 160psi. The pressure setting is stamped on the side of the valve. Replace the valve if it will not hold stamped pressure(cost about $6 at Lowes Lumber).The pressure switch is usually set at the factory to 120 - 130 psi. The unloader part of the pressure switch will not release backpressure unless it reaches set cut-off. The 1/4 inch line attached to the pressure switch connects to air discharge tube at the intank checkvalve (brass valve). The safety valve should very rarely release pressure, only when pressure switch malfunctions and allows pressure to reach up to 160psi. The tank will hold over 300psi so dont worry about the 160psi safety. I am not sure about your exact model number or brand, however most small compressors work the same and share similar parts. For manuals to other similar compessors to to www.dewalt.com. Here you will find manuals to dewalt and porter cable compressors. I prefer to use generic replacement parts from www.grainger.com or from Lowes Lumber. These parts will cost less than factory replacement. If you need to replace the pressure switch, use SquareD brand from grainger. Watch fitting sizes and pressure range. Good Luck on your repair.

IS YOUR AIR FILTER CLOGGED. SOUNDS LIKE THE VALVES IN YOUR HEAD ARE NOT CLOSING ALL THE WAY. THEY ARE MOST LIKELY REED VALVES, THIN STRIPS OF METAL THAT OPEN AND CLOSE WHEN THE PISTON MOVES. MAKE SURE THEY ARE CLOSING ALL THE WAY (NOT CARBONED UP). DID YOU REMOVE THE HEAD AND DID YOU PUT BACK LIKE YOU FOUND IT - NOT TURNED OR FLIPPED OVER. SEE IF YOUR FINGER WILL GET SUCKED UP TO THE INTAKE HOLE.
