Mine had the same problem.
One of the reed valves in the head had broken off due to metal fatigue. Take off black plastic housing with 5 screws along the bottom and one bolt under the handle (the front only). Unscrew the four allen headed screws on top of the compressor. Unscrew the discharge line from the head. You'll need part # AB-A640050 which is the valve plate assy. and possibly AB-9007012 which is the intake valve located in the top of the piston (if damaged). About $18 including shipping from Bostitch.

Check the head gasket. Mine just did the same thing. Mine was blown between the two chambers on top. It's very thin right there. I went to the auto parts store and bought some gasket and made my own for about $6. It's up a working great...finally. BTW the gasket kit is on back order right now at Sear's parts website. It appears we aren't the only ones with the problem!

SOURCE: air compressor 3 gallon
I had mine do the same thing... The head gasket blew out between the intake & discharge side.
I went to O'rileys and bought the blue gasket paper and cut out a new one ($3.00) works fine now.
Just take off the plastic cover, undo the discharge line at the compressor head, remove 4 allen
head bolts, lift off cylinder head and you'll see the gasket gone at the center bridge.
Draw a picture of the way the valve plate under the head is assembled so it goes back together right.
Use care cleaning the old gasket off, NO power tools....Hand wire brush to preserve the little ridges
that bite into the gasket, Soak with solvent helps..You can also order the gasket kit from Sears
about $12.00...Hope this helps ya......John

Your comperssor is oilless type and suffers from short cylinder / piston life. When the compressor no longer reaches cycle pressure the cylinder / piston should be replaced. These parts are available at www.chpower.com I believe that the part number is wl210300aj. Not expensive, enjoy.
