5gal Mastercraft Compressor Dead Capacitor or ?

I have a Mastercraft 5gal air compressor i got from CTire 3 years ago. I was using it with a sanding tool when it suddenly stops. I pull out the power cord and wait for like a minute and plug it on. I heard a humming sound but the motor won't run. Whats seems to be the problem? Is it capacitor related or something else?
