Compressor won't start

I have a Central Pneumatic 29 gal oil lubricated compressor and when it tries to start when the pressure in the tank is about 120lbs it will not start and trips the breaker in the motor. I have tried to move it to different circuit of 20 amps and the same thins happens. If I drain the tank it starts ok and comes up to the 140lbs when it shuts off. I don't know if I can rewire the motor to run on 220. Any advice you can give me will be appreciated.

central pneumatic 3 gallon compressor wont start

Purchased new, with no issues.
The compressor was being used to paint my son's room. Its a 3 gallon compressor and has a max rating of 110 psi.
In the beginning it wouldn't fill correctly to its max potential. I took the cover off and looked around to find the fill line was cracked. I replaced it with 4500 psi fittings and hose rated for heat.
It filled for 3 months and then cut out when I was doing work outside.
I live In Texas, but heat wasn't a factor that day. Everything looked fine when i looked under the cover, and my fuse is good.
I uncapped the rear of my motor and have found black dust everywhere. (Like a screw was being stripped).
I am reaching out before I go further because I am X military and know that the ramifications of my actions could kill whats possibly salvageable in this motor. Suggestions?
