Question about Campbell Hausfeld Air Tools & Compressors
Some air compressors have 1 or 2 pistons one the piston sleeves could have a crack or a small hole what i would do is clean every thing and make sure the inlet valve is open and the unloader valve is clear of debris but if it doesn't help then you propably have a cracked piston sleeve I hope i was helpful ( tell me the model of it and i could get you more information)

I had the exact same problem. Mine was because I had several ounces of water in my tank. I drained the tank and now it works great. I have come across others that have fixed this problem by replacing one or all of these: Check Valve, Unloader Valve, or Pressure Switch. Hope this helps your are someone else with the same issue.

It sounds like the small valve that releases the pressure out of the main pipe that runs between the compressor and tank is not working once the tank is full and the motor automatically cuts off. You know this valve is working by the sound of a short spurt if air being released when the motor cuts off. Releasing this pressure means that the motor is able to restart easily because there is no load. If the valve is not releasing this air, the compressor is trying to start under full load which the motor is not capable of doing, hence the humming and popping of breakers due to a current overload as the motor tries to start. Motor burnout is possible if it keeps recurring.
This small release valve is attached to the Pressure control switch that switches the motor On & Off and usually has a small pipe going to it or is incorporated inside the Pressure Control Switch.
