Question: Air Compressor
my compressor does not start , it hums and that is it , will this take care of my issue?
Reply: Air Compressor
A defective capacitor could definitely be the cause of you motor humming when trying to start. You may want to inspect the windings of the motor, to make sure that they are not burnt or a darkened and if you can smell any burnt insulation. If they are that could be the source of your problem.

most likely you have a cracked reed valve. remove the supply tube, with it running, see if any air is coming out of the head, if it had been running remember that tube will be hot. if it is not pushing out any air then most likely you have a broken reed valve. hard not to tear gaskets when opening so you may need whole kit including the gaskets
