When your compressor stops, friend, can you tell me what's happening?

Is the pressure switch tripping to off, or is the motor thermal reset button tripping the motor out?

From your description it would suggest that you have a pump problem which may be backloading the motor, and tripping it out.

Can't say until you answer the question above, and it would be good to know your model number to.
