Complaint / concern 2hp air compressor

I bought a 31 gallon 2hp air compressor from harbor freight, plugged it in and it works marvelously holds air and everything! But when i get to the point when the compressor needs to come back on to replenish the air lost by an air tool the compressor does not start it just hums.

If you can, take it back. It's defective.

If you can't take it back, you likely have a bad unloader, or it's not present. Could also be a bad motor cap, but that's not likely if it starts OK from empty.

Need the model to know.

That's all assuming you're not using an extension cord.
