Craftsman compressor 919.15294 pops breaker

by Chad

My compressor will run and build up some pressure but then it pops the breaker and shuts it off.

If I hold it down it will continue to run until I let it go.

I have to let all the air out to get it to come back on again.

It won’t build up much pressure before it shuts off.

I did put a new switch on it because when I bought it (used) someone had it straight wired.

What could be my problem? Thanks!
