Campbell Hausfeld 4hp compressor runs about 2 seconds before tripping breaker

by Eddy
(Alabama)

Ive had this compressor for 16 years. It has been a good compressor, but about a year ago it quit working. I have a large compressor in my shop that I use but I would like to get this one fixed to have a portable one again. Every time I cut it on it runs a few seconds then throws the breaker. It runs on 120.

The model number is:MC301800AV it is a Campbell Hausfeld and I bought it in 2000.
