The compressor motor starts to turn then stops.

I have two compressors that are doing the exact same thing. They worked fine and then I put them up in storage and now they don't want to run. The first one will start turning and then pop the breaker at the wall. The second one has a reset/breaker switch and it keeps popping after slowly turning a few times. Keep in mind these are just in-expense shop compressors. One Craftsman and the other is a Harbor Freight model.

As a comment here, tell me what HP the compressors are, the breaker amperage that blows, and how you have the compressors plugged in.
