Hi, Bill. My compressor will run for a second or two when turned on, then shut off. 8-10 seconds later it does it again, and repeats that behavior. I've included pics below for reference. Don't know much about compressors, and would appreciate any assistance you can provide. Thanks in advance.

Rather than repeating what's already here, why not go to the troubleshooting page on this site and read the pages about why air compressor won't start, why they won't build pressure, etc?

All the things you'll want to check about your Kobalt compressor problem are noted there, Don.
