Check for a reset switch on the motor or air pump. They're usually located on the edge of the motor housing sometimes partially hidden by the air shroud around the air pump. It's usually a white button about the size of a pencil eraser with a two digit number in the middle of it. If it's sticking out of its housing push it in to reset it.

If you hooked power directly to motor there is nothing else. Did the motor hum when you did that? If not then you probably have an open winding in the motor.
If it did hum you may have a bind on the motor or pump.

I have a grren white and back wires goin to my

Black is the AC hot wire.
White is the AC neutral wire
And the green is your grounding wire.
Black will prob go to power switch, then to air pressure safety switch, and then to the motor.
White may go directly to motor or power switch.
And green will go usually to motor case or common tie point for grounds.

My 5hp 13 gallon compressor won,t run when you turn it on there is no wind nothing at all how do i bypass the switch and hook it direct

you don't connect it up direct unless you want to destroy the compressor and burn the motor out
check for a reset or thermal overload button if it just shut down when over pressured
replace the pressure control switch is the best fix after checking out the motor condition

Cambell Hausfeld model wl506201aj compressor Hums when switched on

This could be caused by one of two things:
- a stuck or broke tank check valve. This would be evident if the compressor starts up when there is no pressure in the tanks but only hums when the tank pressure is up. Some valves can be cleaned and will work for a while but they usually have to be replaced.
- motor start capacitor. If the capacitor is bad it won't get the motor spinning, with or without pressure in the tanks. You can test it by taking the shroud off the pump and carefully bumping the motor to get it turning. Be careful, it may run up to full speed right away. If it runs replace the capacitor, if not you may have a burnt or shorted motor.
