Removed bad start capacitor by unplugging the bad one and replaced it with the new one by plugging it in. Then screwed cover back on. Replaced the run capacitor even though it still worked so there were 2 new capacitors working at the same time.

Repair Difficulty:
Medium
Time Spent Repairing:

Tools Used:
Pliers, Power Drill, Wrench Set, tap
Compressor would not turn on
Purchased all 4 of the most likely parts needed to repair the problem,

Check valve
Start Capacitor
Overload switch
Main on off switch assembly

Replaced each in the order above. Check valve was clearly broken.
did not fix the problem,
replaced capacitor and overload switch, still did not start
replaced main on off switch, cured the issue.

Could have saved a few dollars, but not savvy enough to test a capacitor or overload switch, so all in all 2 hours and $70 later, I have a fully functioning compressor.
