Reset button keeps tripping. I push button, runs for 30 secs., trips, push button, runs for 30 secs., trips, finally reaching capacity.

Well, if you have the right oil in it for the weather, and it doesn't leak down whenever it gets to cut-off pressure, and you don't have it an extension cord, I think you probably have a failing run capacitor.

There are two capacitors, you may as well check both. There are instructions on this site on how if you need them.

Good luck.
