2.5hp 21 gal campbell hausfield won't go past the starting winding unless the tank is empty and no pressure on it. In detached garage. Unit is brand new and 30 min. break in already done with oil change. Fills up and shuts off at 125 psi.

Compressor turns over a few times but stops
by: Bill

Empty the tank, start the compressor, monitor the pressure in the tank as it rises, not the cut out pressure when the compressor stops, and also ensure that the unloader valve works when the compressor reaches cut out and stops.

See the troubleshooting pages on what to do about air compressors that won't start for more tips.
