C2002 won't start

I have a model C2002 type 8 that won't turn on. We took out thepressure switch and then you can jumper it out to run. Is the pressure switch (part # N003307SV) the problem?

If the pressure switch is not passing power when the tank pressure falls below the normal cut in, and you have power on the line side of the switch, yup, that sounds like a pressure switch to me.

A multi-meter check on the motor side of the pressure switch with the tank empty of air would be able to diagnose a switch failure.

Given what you posted, yes, I would replace the switch if this was my compressor.
