Compressor not starting completely

I just bought a used air compressor from my cousin's husband.
It was working fine when he ran it for me in his garage. It had a sparking wire so once I got home I repaired the wire connections at the compressor.
I also changed the 30amp cord end to one that fit my 30amp outlet.
All connections are good but when I plug it in, the compressor barely runs and only stays on for about 30 seconds then dies away.
I use other items on that outlet and it's working fine. Where could the problem lie?
I need this to work now as I'm in the middle of a home remodel.
