CH 03002000 compressor won't build pressure properly

I have a campetll Hausfield 200PSI compressor it is a 3002 model. I have had it for about three years. It recently started running longer than normal. Usually after the initial run, it would re-compress in about 10 minutes if I would be using it hard. Not long ago it would run longer until it started running continuously, and finally I found it wouldn't build above 40 psi. (Which is what it was at when I turned it on.)
Following your compressor not building post, I drained the tank (which I hadn't done since the summer), disconnected the hose, and restarted it. It did not register any pressure after running for 10 minutes. I reconnected the hose and using a blower fitting got a little air coming out. I tried to test it by putting a compression tester up against the blower fitting, and I roughly got 5-10 psi.
Any suggestions on what might be the trouble?
I did not check the input. I will do that and provide another response.
