SIP air compressor

i have replaced reset button,capacitor and pressure switch.

Dan, a typical reason for the reset letting go before the tank is full to cut out pressure is one of power.

Either not enough power is being delivered to the air compressor from the power source (other things draining power at the same time - too small power line - too long power line etc.) or, as the backpressure increases from the tank the load increases and the run capacitor has weakened. That or the motor itself is wearing out.

I have no idea how old your SIP air compressor is so you'd be a better judge if it's old enough to have things wearing out.
