craftsman pro air compressor wont build air when cold unless heat is applied

Craftsman professional air compressor 175 psi 25 gallon 2 stage oil free. This thing wont build pressure until is has ran for 5 min. with a torpedo heater aimed at it, or its 80 degrees outside and it runs for 5-10 min. you can listen to it and after 5-10 min. running it will change tones and something "seals in" and it works great???

What's the history?

Did you buy it new?

How old is it?

Is this a new problem?
