Paul, I cannot tell from here is your pressure switch has failed.

When the compressor cuts out, is power still flowing from the pressure switch to the motor circuit?

If it is, then it is likely not the pressure switch that is the culprit.

My inclination would be to look to the start / run capacitor if power is still flowing from the pressure switch to the motor circuit.
