emglo ku compressor slowly building pressure and trips breaker

I have an older wheelbarrow type emglo compressor with a ku pump.


When I plug it in it slowly begins to build pressure and then trips the breaker at 50psi.

Any thoughts?

Voltage?

Also, are you sure you're powering it correctly?

Could it be a 220V motor and you've got it on 120?

Thanks for the info. I took the head off to see how it looked and the valves all needs to be replaced. When I went to order the parts they are obsolete. Any ideas where I may be able to get new valve assemblies for it? Is it possible that I can replace the whole head? Or is that even worth it?
