Lots of noise, trying to build pressure but regulator doesn't go past 20-30 psi.

Lots of noise

Bit hard to be specific with no model number or images of your air compressor.

A 3 gallon is pretty small, so I suspect you've got a fractional HP motor with a mini-piston driving air into the tank, but cannot be sure.

Often a compressor getting louder means that the gaskets have let go at a certain pressure, but again, without seeing your compressor cannot be sure if you even have gaskets.

If it's one of those mini-compressors, pull the shroud and see if you can spot the piston. That's possibly what's going, but I cannot hear the noise, so that's the best I can do with the info provided.
