Husky compressor won't run

John, you say you accidentally touched a screw. Does that mean that you "felt" that there was power at the screw? If so, sorry for you. That can't have been pleasant.

You want to dump all the air out of the air compressor tank, then use a multi-meter and see if power is on the motor side of the pressure switch, as the pressure switch should have tripped to "passing" when the tank pressure dropped to zero.

If you have power to the switch and the tank pressure is zero, but there is no power on the motor side of the switch, then it's most likely the pressure switch itself that has failed.
