pump shuts off

Larry, I don't know what model of Speedaire compressor you have, so any comments will have to be general.

How is the motor connected to the pump? Shaft, belt, what?

If the motor runs but the pump doesn't turn, then the connection between the two must have let go somehow.

Then, if the pump stops pumping air, the air pressure in the tank can never get to the cut out pressure setting, and the motor will never stop until it fails.

Please add a comment here with as much additional info you can provide such as model number, what pressure the tank gauge displays when the pump stops, how old the compressor is, what use level has it seen...
