Does anyone know why a Shoebox compressor would turn itself off immediately?

I have an older (2011) Shoebox compressor that was sitting unused for at least a couple of years. When I fire it up now (to top up a Guppy tank), it goes through one cycle then trips off as if it has reached max pressure.

Any thoughts?  TIA

Could be the max pressure switch. Not sure if they are NO or NC, but you could test by either disconnecting the switch or shorting the leads to determine if it's the switch.

Thanks for the tip. When I tried the compressor agan today, it started right up and ran without trouble. A mystery, but not a problem!  😉
